Back To Medical Weight Loss

What are your thoughts and feelings about food?
How do you perceive yourself?
What may have caused your weight gain?

These are difficult questions to answer, especially for individuals who have struggled with their weight for a long time.

Dr.Hubert recognizes that weight loss is not solely about reducing food intake and increasing physical activity. It involves understanding, regulating, and altering your attitudes, emotions, and actions toward food. Unless you can gain control of your food-related behaviors, it can be exceedingly difficult to gain control of your weight.

What is behavior modification?

Behavior modification, also known as behavior therapy or lifestyle education, is the process of learning and applying techniques that enable you to recognize and manage problematic areas in your life that impact your weight. Dr. Hubert will guide you through the process of developing strategies and habits that will lead to a lifetime of healthy choices.

Our program utilizes behavior modification techniques to help individuals gain control of their food-related behaviors and achieve lasting weight loss. It involves the following steps:

  • Self-monitoring: Keeping track of daily food intake and physical activity to better understand obstacles to weight management.
  • Problem-solving: Identifying issues that affect weight management and devising strategies to overcome them.
  • Contingency planning: Developing methods to cope with setbacks and recover quickly.
  • Stimulus control: Identifying and avoiding triggers that lead to overeating.
  • Stress management: Managing external factors that can interfere with maintaining positive behaviors.
  • Support: Fostering supportive environments and relationships to help achieve weight loss goals.
  • Cognitive restructuring: Shifting thinking patterns to promote weight loss and overall health.
