Weight Loss Q & A

How can I achieve weight loss?

Achieving steady, sustainable weight loss can be a challenge. While healthy eating and exercise may seem like a certain way to shed pounds, losing weight isn’t always a straightforward process. 


Partnering with Dr. Lukner can help you discover new avenues toward lasting weight loss. From comprehensive metabolic testing and personalized diets to appetite-suppressant medications, Dr. Lukner can help you lose weight and keep it off.

Why is weight loss difficult for me?


Weight loss is difficult for many reasons. Uncovering the cause of stubborn weight is the first step in sustainably losing it. Common reasons weight loss is difficult include:


  • Poor diet or overeating
  • Lack of exercise
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Genetics
  • Certain medications
  • Stress
  • Age
  • Underlying medical conditions


Dr. Lukner works with you to create an individualized weight management plan that helps you shed excess pounds and improve your overall health.

What are the benefits of weight loss?


If you carry excess weight, losing even 5-10% of your body mass can significantly improve your health. Weight loss can lead to the following:


  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced risk of chronic disease (such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease)
  • Less joint and back pain
  • Higher energy
  • Improved mood
  • Better sleep
  • Improved insulin resistance 
  • Higher libido


Maintaining a healthy weight can also boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in your skin.

What is the best diet for weight loss?


The best diet for weight loss depends on several factors, including genetic makeup, medical history, and goals. Dr. Lukner performs a physical exam and orders comprehensive lab testing to determine the most appropriate diet for your needs.


Most people benefit from a balanced diet, including lean protein, leafy greens, fruit, and complex carbohydrates. After testing, Dr. Lukner can recommend specific foods for your needs.

What does my medical weight loss plan include?


Dr. Lukner tailors your weight loss plan to your individual needs and goals. Your plan may include:


  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise support
  • Regular check-ins
  • Appetite suppressants
  • Supplements
  • Medications


Healthy habits, such as quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption, can also help you lose weight.
