An entire team of professionals, led by a board-certified physician, work to provide superior care to our clients. Our team will guide and motivate you during your weight loss journey. We provide the encouragement and supervision you need, to reach your goal weight and transition to a healthier lifestyle.
We offer several different diet plans which are convenient and palatable. Diet plans vary from gentle weight loss diets to more aggressive plans.
Phase 1 - RAPID WEIGHT LOSS (6-12 Weeks)
Phase I requires weekly medical monitoring for weigh in, goal
counseling and Lipotrophic
injections. Weight loss is not only safe, but rapid: an
average of 3-5 pounds per week. We provide
weekly support group meetings which are essential to your
These meetings involve dieticians to help educate you on how to manage your weight. This group offers a safe environment where you can express your thoughts, feelings, concerns and fears with others who understand what you are going through.
Phase 2 - GRADUAL WEIGHT LOSS (3-12 months)
In Phase II, or Gradual Weight Loss, you will apply the information
learned in Phase I and weekly classes and gradually
begin adding more variety to your diet.
This phase also requires weekly medical monitoring and attendance in support group meetings. Behavioral educators will monitor your food journal and help you transition to a healthier lifestyle.
Phase 3 - MAINTENANCE (12 months and beyond)
Our maintenance program begins when your goal weight is reached.
Although patients are learning while in the weight loss phase,
the experience comes in the maintenance phase. During this phase,
patient’s will use the skills they have learned in Phase
I and Phase II while enjoying aspects
of life including birthdays, holidays, weddings, sadness and
joy. Behaviors are learned, hence must be practiced repeatedly
to become a part of daily life
Therefore, 12 to 18 months is essential to create long-term behavioral changes to make sure you keep the weight off. Group meetings and behavioral educations are essential during this phase to focus on special issues. Patients can share their challenges and triumphs as they become accountable to themselves.
