Initial exam

During your initial exam, our staff and licensed medical professionals will review your medical and weight history and design your personalized, comprehensive weight management plan. Your visit includes:

  • Measurement of weight and blood pressure
  • State-of-the-art body composition and metabolic analysis
  • Blood panels
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)
  • Amino acid and vitamin supplements
  • Multivitamin with chromium picolinate
  • Our guidebook and daily tracking tool

Weekly one-on-one visits

Each week, you will have a private counseling session with one of our health experts – many of whom once struggled with weight themselves. In this supportive environment, we’ll track your progress, address your unique challenges, and supply you with the skills you need to make sound decisions every day.


Eating healthy isn’t about deprivation. We help you design a delicious low-fat, lean-protein, low-carbohydrate, meal strategy enjoying whole, fresh foods. We don’t try to sell you chemically processed, prepackaged meals. Instead, your personal diet will consist of foods you already love, enabling you to lose weight quickly. Most importantly, we teach you how to keep the weight off when challenged with real world situations, from a dinner date to the company picnic. See a sample menu and recipe.

Healthy Food


We gradually introduce a moderate exercise program to help you gain energy, build strength and keep the extra pounds off. We work with you to develop a customized routine that’s fun and sustainable in your busy life. See a sample exercise routine.


Medical supervision

Each week, we monitor your health and progress, measuring your blood pressure and providing essential amino acid and vitamin supplements. We also discuss the possibility of including FDA-approved prescription medication to assist with appetite control during your program.


A new frame of mind

We know that sustainable weight loss is as much about the mind as it is about the body. That’s why our psychological experts are here to help you address any obstacles you encounter along the way. Whether you’re constantly traveling for business, nagged by old eating habits or cooking for a family of four, we help you develop the strategies you need to succeed.

Long-term follow up

Losing weight is one thing. Keeping it off is another. You can use shakes or prepackaged meals to lose some weight, but eventually you’ll return to the real world and real food. If you haven’t learned to eat differently on a consistent basis, you will gain the weight back…and more. We teach real-life strategies based on whole, fresh foods that are sustainable over time. Then we provide an ongoing support program specifically designed to ensure that you maintain your weight loss.
