Medical Weight LossFresno, CA
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the most challenging struggles people face. Not only does obesity increase someone’s risk for developing serious medical problems it can also contribute to physical challenges as well as hinder self- esteem.

Benefits of our non-surgical medical weight loss
Many people who experience weight gain try to shed those excess pounds on their own. Often times, they turn to gimmicky diets or fleeting meal and exercise plans. Our board-certified Obesity Medicine physicians, Dr. Juan Chavez, MD, and Dr. Lucia Mireles-Chavez, MD, along with our health team, have the knowledge and training to enable patients to achieve sustainable long-term results and stop the yoyo dieting.
Using science-based treatments, genetic factors, medication, lipotropic supplementation, body composition, lab analysis, and much more our team will customize a weight loss plan that targets each patient’s personal goals. We have worked with clients whose goals ranged from losing 5-200 pounds. Optimal Medical Group’s knowledgeable team of professionals provide patients with all the information they need to make the right weight-loss decisions and achieve lasting results.
Our methods focus on losing fat while maintaining and building muscle. It is important to preserve your muscle through your weight loss journey in order to change body composition and not just change the number on the scale. Our DEXA scan allows us to objectively assess all fat and muscle changes to make sure you are on the right track to achieving optimal health. Our program will also address how stress, anxiety, work/life balance, and sleep play a role in weight gain and how patients can more effectively manage these issues.
It is not uncommon for people of all ages and backgrounds to gain weight. Optimal Medical Group frequently sees patients who have had difficulty maintaining a healthy weight. There are several factors that can contribute to weight gain such as hormone imbalance, vitamin or nutritional deficiencies, poor diet high in suboptimal calories, fat and sugars as well as lifestyle factors including sleep and stress. Often times, gaining weight can happen quickly and very easily, but losing that weight is much more difficult to do.
12-week OMGLean Treatment Plan
A patient’s first visit with one of our Obesity Board Certified practitioners will include a thorough physical examination, DEXA body composition scan, lab review, genetic testing, as well as an in-depth discussion about health history and personal goals.
This initial assessment and evaluation will help our practitioner determine what methods may be most effective. Together, the patient, practitioner and health coach will develop a plan. Which may include dietary recommendations, exercise regimen, and lifestyle modification to achieve overall wellness and lasting results. Throughout the 12-week program, our team will continue to explore the contributing factors for weight gain and the challenges the patient faces in their quest to keep it off as well as identify what works best for the patient for achieving weight loss and positive lifestyle changes.
It is essential for patients to have someone to cheer them on and encourage them in their efforts. Our team will do this through weekly follow-up and accountability check-ins. It is normal to experience feeling discouraged, depressed, or overwhelmed with the process when going through a weight loss journey and your health coach will always be there to support you and keep you pushing toward your goals.

An even more in depth look at what you are getting
Appetite Control Medication
An appetite suppressant targets the source of the problem within the brain where hunger is regulated. This drug goes to the hypothalamus in the brain to essentially tell it to stop sending out hunger signals. This allows the patient not to be challenged by “hunger pains” and cravings.
Many times, people who are obese are getting hunger signals for reasons other than a real need for food. Using an appetite suppressant allows a patient to have more control over what and when they eat. For many patients, this is an excellent solution. Additionally, appetite suppressant increases your fat burn capability.
Lipotropic Injection Supplementation
Exercise and dietary changes are sometimes not enough on their own to lose the weight. We utilize lipotropic injections, which are a unique combination of amino acids and B Vitamins that play an essential role in burning off body fat. They will also help boost energy levels and may aid with depression, insomnia, arthritis, and other conditions.
We provide individualized nutritional coaching to help you create an actual lifestyle change and put an end to the yo-yo dieting of the past. Our Health Coaches will guide you along the road to success, with freedom from guilt and denial, by providing a sustainable plan to help you lose the weight and keep it off for good.
We also maintain a very positive approach to weight loss and total wellness. We believe that having healthy habits also includes a healthy mental attitude and you will always be greeted with positive attitudes and lots of encouragement.
At each meeting with your OMG Health Coach, we will assess your past week’s results, set new goals, and assist with strategies for future situations. We will also address your individual needs to help you stay on track.
Body Composition Analysis
Total body scans with DEXA (using the industry gold standard iDXA GE Lunar machine) provide accurate and precise measurements of your total body composition, including bone mineral content, lean tissue mass, fat tissue mass, visceral fat, and body fat percentage. We do these at the beginning and end of the program so we can objectively review your success. While on your weight loss journey it is important to remember that losing fat mass is the goal and the scale will not reflect whether you are losing fat or muscle. This is why our state-of-the-art DEXA scan is crucial in assessing your overall progress.
