Medical Weight Loss Program

Meal replacements are used in a rapid weight loss phase for three months. Weight loss during this part of the program relies primarily on supplements to spare patients from having to confront unhealthy food choices and helps patients focus on modifying behaviors.

The second phase or "Transitional Stage" of the program assist patients in moving from meal replacement to traditional grocery food choices.

The third phase is the "Maintenance Stage" where patients focus on maintaining their weight loss. This is a special added service not offered by most weight loss programs. It lasts 12-24 months and is offered at competitive prices.
