Our program is designed for long-term weight control with a focus on sustainable healthy lifestyle habits. We offer medical monitoring, low carbohydrate/ketogenic nutritional programs, behavioral strategies for lifestyle changes, and physical activity guidance.
The medically supervised weight loss program is structured and personalized. Following a physical exam, complete review of medical history, lab results and EKG, each patient works with our physicians to receive a personalized, intensive plan.
The individualized plan includes:
- Medical monitoring
- Nutritional counseling
- Behavioral strategies to make lifestyle changes that are sustainable
- Exercise guidance
Benefits of a Low Carbohydrate/Ketogenic Diet
- “A Low Carbohydrate, Ketogenic Diet Manual: no Sugar, No Starch Diet,” by Eric C. Westman, MD. Dr. Westman is the clinical expert on the use of well formulated low carbohydrate diets for the treatment of obesity and metabolic syndrome. This pamphlet is the instructional manual for the approach that he uses.
- “The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable.” by Jeff S. Volek, PhD,RD, and Stephen D. Phinney, MD, PhD. This is an extremely readable but still scientific and detailed guide to why carbohydrate restriction is such a powerful and beneficial intervention for many of our patients.
