Our program focuses on teaching you how to eat to lose weight and how to eat to maintain your weight. Our healthy eating plan led by our Registered Nurse & Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist will help you reset your metabolism, lose fat, and preserve muscle.
Your diet will consist of predominantly whole foods you purchase at the grocery store.
Our program is medically supervised for safe and effective weight loss. It includes nutrition education, lifestyle modification, individual counseling, and long-range maintenance strategies. Specifically we design a healthy eating plan tailored for you that is affordable, while providing you with exceptional service, support, and education from our staff.
We encourage our clients to sign up for this program because that’s where you learn how to keep the weight off you’ve lost. That said, we've decided to include a component that will further your success by incorporating specific behavioral strategies and tips to ensure you maintain your new healthy body weight.
