Weight Loss Solutions
The Program – All inclusive Medical Weight Loss Program
This is a customized physician directed medical weight loss program designed to achieve a patient’s individual goal. Each patient will undergo a comprehensive initial assessment which typically includes a history and physical, laboratory testing, electrocardiogram, metabolic testing, body fat analysis, weight and neck circumference measurements, vital signs, and body mass index. The data collected during this visit will help us tailor a comprehensive weight loss plan based on your measured metabolism and medical condition. Along with a specified meal plan, adjunctive treatments may be offered including lipotropic injections (fat burning injection), Vitamin B12 injections, multivitamins, essential fatty acids, appetite suppressants – prescription or herbal. Protein supplements are available in a variety of products to help with dietary compliance. A healthy diet is outlined and compliance is increased through direct supervision and routine assessments.
Follow up visits are offered after completion of our program. Each follow up includes discussion with your progress by the physician. Some patients may continue with lipotropic agents or protein products which are available at individual pricing. It is important to keep yourself accountable and this option allows for changes to be made in a timely manner, especially if we start noticing a rise in your previous weight loss to ensure long term success.
HS Diet Protocol
The Healthy Solutions hormone based diet protocol consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) accompanied by treatments of a natural hormone that comes in a transdermal cream or sublingual drops. The average dieter experiences rapid weight loss averaging 0.5-2 pounds per day*. In addition to loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of this protocol is its ability to help modify the dieter’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss.
*Individual results may vary.
