Weight Loss Q & A

What causes unexplained weight loss?

Everyone’s weight typically fluctuates by about 10 pounds, but losing a significant amount of weight for no reason may have cause for concern. If you’ve lost an unusual amount of weight and haven’t been dieting or exercising, your provider at Poplar Avenue Clinic checks for a root cause, which may include:

  • Sexually transmitted disease
  • Muscle loss
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Depression
  • Cancer

It’s not typical to lose weight for no reason. Even if you look and feel healthy, schedule a checkup at Poplar Avenue Clinic for peace of mind.

When might you need help with weight loss?

Losing weight can be challenging, especially if you aren’t sure where to start. And how do you know if you’re an unhealthy weight anyway? The team at Poplar Avenue Clinic measures your body mass index (BMI), which calculates the healthy weight range for your height. It tells you if you’re underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. But there are other ways to tell if you need help with weight loss.

  • You gain weight each year
  • You have high blood pressure
  • You have diabetes or prediabetes
  • It’s an effort to walk short distances
  • You snore
  • You have high cholesterol
  • Your joints hurt

Plenty of people need a little guidance and motivation to start a weight-loss program, which is why Poplar Avenue Clinic offers weight-loss support services, including the Ideal Protein Diet.

What does a weight-loss program involve?

During your consultation at Poplar Avenue Clinic, your provider asks you a series of questions to understand your current lifestyle, health history, and weight-loss goals. From there, they create a custom weight-loss program tailored to your needs, which may include the following:


You must consume fewer calories than you burn to lose weight. Poplar Avenue Clinic offers the Ideal Protein Diet, a four-phase plan that involves one-on-one nutritional coaching.


Under the Ideal Protein Diet, it’s not recommended to exercise during the first three weeks of the program. However, if you’re following a different weight-loss program, a combination of weight training and cardio helps build muscle, burn fat, and tone.


Nutritional supplements ensure you get the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need, no matter what diet you follow.

For all your weight-loss needs, call Poplar Avenue Clinic to schedule an appointment or book through the patient portal.
