Dr. Nadia Pietrzykowska will help you develop a plan based on your needs as well as your goals.
Your nutritional plan will aim at helping you lose a minimum of 10% of your initial weight in the first 12 weeks. Your plan will include traditional foods from grocery stores and meal replacement foods. Replacements, which are available in our Hamilton office, are engineered to be nutritious and safe to be used in low calorie diets, and common meal replacement foods and snacks include:

While participating in our fast track medical weight loss program, you will have weekly one-on-one office visits. Not only does this help monitor your progress, but this helps us make recommendations to alter your plan, if necessary. One to four blocks of the plan may be recommended based on your goals and experiences.
Results will vary for each person and their specific goals. While the initial goal is to achieve at least 10% weight reduction within the first 12 weeks of the plan, many patients achieve a 20-30% reduction over the course of a few blocks. Many people also see a significant improvement with their medical conditions.
