Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the best place to start for weight loss?

A healthy diet and regular exercise should be a part of your weight loss treatment plan.  If change for weight loss feels challenging or overwhelming, start out small! For example, a great way to ease into this is by making small goals at first, such no longer drinking soda, or changing one meal each day or each week. To learn more about weight loss, talk to a PlushCare doctor today about what changes feel doable for you and what your options are. There is no ‘one right way’ to begin to make changes.

How should I deal with food cravings as I lose weight?

It’s important to know that food cravings are a product of what we’ve been feeding our body all along.  Meaning:  if your body is used to eating fast food, pathways to crave fast foods will get set up in your brain and body.  Over time, these cravings will diminish as you change your eating.  If cravings become overwhelming and make it difficult to even make small changes, we can prescribe weight loss medications which may help, if you qualify.

Is it important to keep a food journal or diary?

Journaling what you eat via a notebook or app can be a great idea for the following reasons:

  • Increases your mindfulness and awareness of what you eat
  • Helps you troubleshoot any problems or concerns with your doctor
  • Increases accountability for weight loss
  • Helps you learn more about nutrition
  • Helps you learn about how what you eat affects you physically and emotionally

Are there FDA-approved medications for weight loss?

Yes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several medications for weight loss and weight management, including:

What medications are used off label for weight loss?

A doctor may sometimes decide to prescribe a medication “off-label” from its original purpose in order to help a patient with weight loss. Examples of medications that may be used off-label for weight loss include:

    DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!

    Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.

    I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
