Weight Loss Q & A
What is medical weight loss management?
At Hackensack Primary Care, Dr. Singh cares about your whole health and offers services to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
Medical weight loss is effective at helping you lose weight, whether you’re aiming to lose 100 pounds or those last 10 pounds you can’t seem to get rid of on your own. Weight loss management is also a preventive service, helping you prevent a number of obesity-related conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Coronary artery disease
- Chronic back and joint pain
Dr. Singh provides you with nutritional and dietary counseling and can recommend a sufficient exercise plan to keep you active and boost your energy levels.
Medically managed weight loss is not a quick fix, but rather a slow, steady progress toward your weight goals. Dr. Singh works closely with you to assess your needs and creates a custom weight loss program to help you meet your weight loss goals.
What is nutritional and diet counseling?
Dr. Singh can determine what nutritional requirements your body needs to boost its metabolism and promote effective weight loss. Eating a well-balanced diet of fresh, unprocessed foods is a good start to a better diet and Dr. Singh can recommend additional supplements to ensure your body has what it needs.
As part of your weight loss, Dr. Singh recommends how many calories you should be taking in each day in your diet. She can recommend low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-sugar meal plans to help you get started.

- Are clinically obese
- Have health conditions affected by your weight
