Weight Management Q & A

What is weight management?

Dr. Beregovskaya offers weight management to help you get rid of pounds and keep them off. By developing and maintaining healthy habits, you can reach a weight where you look and feel good, and your body functions properly.

Dr. Beregovskaya counsels you on nutrition and exercise and teaches you how to eat to nourish your body, not feed cravings. Depending on your needs, she may recommend a heart-healthy diet or one that’s low in sodium. She also recommends eating a wide variety of healthy, whole foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, and lean meats.

She also addresses exercise in weight management. Dr. Beregovskaya recommends a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity most days. That can include walking, swimming, or dancing. If you have physical limitations that make exercise difficult, talk to Dr. Beregovskaya to find a solution.

Why is weight management important?

It’s important to control your weight because those who are overweight are more likely to develop chronic conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes or heart disease. For those who already have these conditions, losing weight can reduce your symptoms and may even reverse the condition.

What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling is an ongoing process that assesses your dietary intake and identifies where you can improve it. Dr. Beregovskaya provides educational resources on how your body consumes and uses energy along with the number of calories and nutrients you should eat every day.

Through nutritional counseling, Dr. Beregovskaya may also discuss how to make and maintain necessary dietary changes. She advises you on how to eat healthier and recommends a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats.

Beyond diet and exercise, what can assist with weight management?

Because Dr. Beregovskaya takes a long-term approach to weight management, not quick fixes or fad diets, she supports you as you replace bad habits with good ones.

She can also help address barriers standing in your way to weight loss. Those can include introducing stress-reduction methods for emotional eaters and lifestyle changes, like using a smaller plate.

In some cases, Dr. Beregovskaya may recommend nutritional supplements. She offers Metagenics® supplements to address a range of nutritional needs. These include:

  • Metabolism boost
  • Body composition
  • Gastrointestinal blood-glucose support
  • Heart health
  • Immune support
