Weight Management Q & A

What is weight management?

Weight management is a program that helps you stay at your target body weight after you lose excess pounds.

The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss customizes weight-management plans that focus on diet and exercise to support a healthy weight. The providers help you successfully transition from a calorie-restricted diet into a healthy eating plan to help you maintain your goal weight.

You also receive information and resources relating to customized fitness plans as well as macronutrient education to help you maintain your goal weight in the long term.


What are macronutrients?

Macronutrients, sometimes called “macros,” are the three main biochemical compounds that your body needs to maintain all necessary life functions. These nutrients include fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

A combination of these nutrients make up all foods, and each contains a certain amount of calories per gram that equal the total calories in a specific food. Fat has 9 calories per gram, and protein and carbohydrates both have 4 calories per gram

By controlling your macro intake and following a fitness plan, you can transform your body to meet your weight-loss and body-composition goals. The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss assists you with meal planning to give you total control over your macronutrient intake.


How does meal planning work in weight management?

The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss provides resources to help you prepare meals based on your weight-loss goals. They offer medical supervision for calculating macronutrients and strongly recommend that beginners to a macros program follow the guidance of an experienced practitioner, like those at NuvidaRx Weight Loss to ensure your health and safety.

For instance, they can help you calculate how many calories you should consume each day using macros to maintain a healthy body weight.

If your total calorie intake is 1200 calories, depending on your macro breakdown, you might calculate your daily meal plan as follows:

  • 75 grams of protein at 4 calories per gram = 300 calories of protein

Then you’d have 900 calories left to split between carbs and fats. One way to do that might be:

  • 450 calories of carbohydrates at 4 calories per gram = 110-115 grams of carbs
  • 450 calories of fat at 9 calories per gram = 50 grams of fat

Rest assured that the macro breakdown of your weight-management plan will be specifically tailored to your needs. 

In addition to help from the NuvidaRx Weight Loss staff, you can also calculate your macros through several meal planning diet apps like MyFitnessPal.

Meal planning is important for weight management and can also keep you motivated to transform your body and prepare yourself for competitive training.
