Benefits of Medically Supervised Weight Loss
Obesity is a complex medical condition, and it often requires a multifaceted and medically supported approach for effective treatment.1 At Panhandle Weight Loss Center, we have designed a unique weight loss program that takes into account all factors that contribute to obesity, including:
- Diet and nutrition
- Medical factors impacting metabolism
We understand that for individuals with obesity, successfully achieving and maintaining a healthy weight doesn’t occur in a vacuum. The commitment and personal changes that are required of our patients in the REWIRE program, though vastly rewarding, are physically and emotionally taxing. This is why we provide comprehensive support, walking hand in hand with each patient through every step of his or her weight loss journey.
At Panhandle Weight Loss Center, our support team consists of:
- Doctors and Nurse Practitioners
- Primal Certified Health & Wellness Coaches
- NASM Certified Personal Trainers
What was it like to work with the team, from the start of your journey to today?
The team was fantastic and told me exactly what to expect. They explained everything to me the first time I was in the office then continued to be very available and open during the entire process.
What is your life like now? What’s the #1 thing you love being able to do now?
Life is more fun and I am much more active. I go to the gym 3 to 4 times per week and work at home the other 3 to 4 days. Our life doesn’t revolve around meals anymore.

Your Customized Weight Loss Program
To begin each patient’s medically supervised weight loss program, we measure his or her basal metabolic rate (BMR) and perform a DEXA scan. A DEXA scan (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) is a special scanner that measures your body composition and establishes your bone density and percentage of lean muscle mass and body fat. The measured lean muscle mass allows us to calculate your daily protein requirements, which is the foundation of your nutritional goals. Science is clear that nutritional platforms that strive to eliminate refined carbohydrates, keeping your total daily carbohydrate low, and increasing the amount of healthy, saturated fats are essential to achieving a healthy body weight. This philosophy allows us to create your personalized nutrition, exercise, and weight management goals.
As a participant in our medically supervised REWIRE weight loss program, you’ll have access to:
Initial physician consultation
- 3 visits with your Advanced Practitioner

Diet and Nutrition
We are committed to helping you create healthy eating habits and an exercise regimen that will not only help you lose weight but also sustain the weight loss you achieve long term. There are three important macronutrients needed daily for the body to grow, develop, repair, and have energy to function. The three macronutrients are carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. We will unpack these three main macronutrients in depth so you have a good understanding of what the body needs, where we get them from, and how our hormones play a huge role in the body’s ability to process them. Understanding the nutritional content and value of the foods you consume is the first step towards making healthy food choices.
