What are the benefits of a medical weight loss plan?
Our medical weight-loss plans offer many benefits over and above trying to lose weight on your own. Not only do you receive our support as highly trained medical professionals, but you also get these benefits:
• A thorough physical evaluation to determine any health issues that could hinder your progress
• A customized diet plan to meet your individual needs
• An individualized exercise or physical therapy program that allows you to become physically fit at the pace best suited for your body
• A highly structured support system to help guide you through many of the obstacles people face when trying to lose weight
Our physician-guided weight loss programs include evaluations of diet, exercise, body compositions, medications, and previous medical history. We also personalize weight loss to fit you. Plus, a portion of your medical weight loss could even be covered by your insurance! Whether you’re trying to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, we can help.
When should you consider a medical weight-loss plan?
You should consider a medical weight-loss plan if you need to lose weight, but have tried unsuccessfully in the past. It’s also important to seek medical guidance if you have health conditions that may be dramatically affected by your weight-loss regimen.
We can guide you through the difficult periods you face as your body begins to change. We help you build positive lifestyle habits, allowing you to move forward on your weight-loss journey after you have reached your goal weight. These new habits keep you from regaining weight after you complete your weight-loss program.
What happens during a medical weight loss plan?
A medically supervised weight-loss plan begins with a thorough examination to determine your exact level of fitness. We look for any health conditions that may be of concern as you move forward. Once we have evaluated your health, we develop diet and exercise plans tailored to meet your needs.
One of our providers will meet with you on a regular basis to:
• Check your progress
• Discuss any potential problems
• Evaluate your health
If your plan requires changes, we can alter it accordingly. That helps eliminate any risks or hazards that may arise due to your current health.

Vitamin B12 Injections
These injections aide in the growth of healthy blood cells, nerve cells, and bodily proteins; assist with the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates to release energy; help regulate appetite and mood (key factors in overeating); and are a great treatment for people who cannot absorb vitamin B12.
Lipo injections aide in the release of fat deposits throughout the body. Some of these areas include the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks, and hips. Lipotropic (fat burning substances) include: inositol, which aids the liver in fat metabolism; choline, which helps distribute cholesterol; and methionine, which works synergistically with inositol to metabolize and distribute lipids and cholesterol.
These injections also contain B Vitamins which improve overall body functioning and health. B12 helps the body process nutrients more effectively and, in turn, increases metabolism. Together with lipotropic nutrients, they offer the best of both worlds.

What is Body Composition Analysis
Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition, as well as our weight, determines leanness.
We utilize this information to determine that your weight loss is coming from fat tissue rather than muscle. Allowing our bodies to maintain weight loss.
Bioelectrical impedance measures the resistance of body tissues to the flow of a small, harmless electrical signal. The proportion of body fat can be calculated as the current flows more easily through the parts of the body that are composed mostly of water (such as blood, urine & muscle) than it does through bone, fat or air.
Benefits of having a health body composition:
• Normal blood pressure level
• Improved quality of sleep
• Improved mood and self-confidence
• Increased energy and endurance throughout the day
• Reduced pain in joints, hips, and lower back
• Improved blood circulation-leading to lower risk of heart disease
• Higher fertility rates and lower risk for pregnancy-related complications
• Improved breathing, respiration, and lung function
• Improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity
