Overview

At Medical Weight Management we offer a comprehensive medically-supervised weight loss program for patients looking to lose a significant amount of body weight. Unlike programs that focus primarily on hypnosis or meetings with non-medical personnel, our weight loss program is designed and administered by an in-house physician, nurse practitioner and a staff of registered dietitians. Our two main dietary programs are:

VERY LOW CALORIE DIET (VLCD)

The VLCD Program includes:

  • 5 or more nutritionally balanced meal replacements a day
  • Weekly medical supervision during the first month and once a month thereafter
  • Weekly class or dietitian visit
  • Weekly medical check-in
  • Monthly lab work
  • Monthly body composition analysis

HEALTHY SOLUTIONS (HS)

The HS program includes:

  • 2 or more nutritionally balanced meal replacements, 2 entrees, 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day
  • Weekly medical supervision during the first month and once a month thereafter
  • Weekly class or dietitian visit
  • Weekly medical check-in
  • Quarterly lab work
  • Monthly body composition analysis

Regardless of the program selected, all patients receive laboratory testing to assess heart, liver, and kidney function as well as cholesterol and blood sugar levels. We evaluate thyroid function, percent of body fat, lean muscle mass, hydration, and metabolic rate. Again, the focus here is on providing a medically-supervised program that will provide long-term results through a combination of education and behavior changes that encourage personal responsibility and healthier lifestyle choices.

While individual results will vary, participants in the Medical Weight Loss program can lose as much as 40 to 60 pounds in a 3 to 6 month period.
