Medical Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss Approach


Medical Weight Loss Approach

We use the Optifast® Program (Nestle Health Science) which is a medical weight loss approach only available through hospitals or physician practices. It has produced verifiable results in over a million patients since 1974. An average weight loss of 52 pounds in over 20,000 patients using this weight loss formula has been documented in medical journals (average BMI of 39)*.

The Optifast® program addresses not just diet and exercise but also the genetic, social, emotional and environmental factors that contribute to obesity. It is an individualized, physician-supervised approach in which support is provided both during and after weight loss. The program is designed to help you both lose and keep the weight off as it provides all of the tools you need to make a lasting life change. Studies prove that majority of patients maintain weight loss for five or more years*.

We begin with a thorough preliminary medical examination and any necessary lab tests to determine the current state of your health and rule out any risk factors. We then develop a personalized weight loss plan based on these results and your goals that typically lasts 26 weeks. During the active weight loss phase, you will be on a full Optifast® meal replacement plan. These are pre-portioned and calorie – controlled servings that offer complete nutrition and frees you from having to make food choices.

Your progress, health, and well-being will be medically monitored and guidance provided throughout the course of the treatment (including with respect to the appropriate amount of exercise). Once you have achieved your initial weight loss success, we will help you transition back to regular foods. You will learn how to make healthy food choices and to determine and sustain the appropriate amount of regular exercise. So in addition to losing weight, you will improve your health and be better equipped to manage your weight over the long term.
