How Our Medical Weight Loss Program Works
Starting Phase: You will be prescribed low-calorie FDA approved meal replacements or a modified meal plan with your own food. We recommend weekly weigh-ins with behavioral, exercise and nutritional counseling for accountability. FDA medications will be administered by a physician if needed. We offer a monthly Newsletter with Nutrition and Exercise tips.
Transitional Stage: You will be on a modified low-calorie diet where regular food will be put back into your daily routine. Meal plans can be provided by our Nutritionist or Registered Dietitian. Behavioral, nutritional and exercise instruction will continue to be used until you are comfortable that you can do this on your own. Some patients continue to see our staff on a bi-weekly or monthly basis.
Maintenance Phase: You are now a Pro and have learned how to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the weight off. We offer an Annual Membership where you are able to purchase the shakes and bars at a discount as well as come in for weigh-ins every quarter. We realize that maintaining a healthy weight can be a lifetime challenge so we welcome you to come back if needed.
