What Is the Fast Track Medical Weight Loss Program?
Our fast track medical weight loss program consists of 12 week treatment blocks. This program is evidence-based, rooted in medical guidelines and the latest research. It is based on four pillars of medical weight management, which are:
- Nutrition counseling and prescription
- Behavior modification counseling
- Exercise guidance and counseling
- FDA-approved weight loss medications (if necessary)
This Program uses nutrition as a therapy for weight loss and improvement of medical conditions.
Our plans go beyond traditional weight loss. This therapeutic approach involves behavior modification to address frustrating habits, such as emotional eating or relapse management. Exercise counseling is used to complement and supplement the overall plan to promote not only weight loss but an overall permanent lifestyle change. If necessary, FDA-approved medications may be recommended.
What Could I Expect from our Weight Loss Plans?
Participating in our fast track medical weight loss program begins with a series of tests, including:
- Laboratory tests
- Body composition testing
- Resting metabolic rate testing
These tests help better understand your body and needs. Dr. Nadia Pietrzykowska will help you develop a nutritional plan based on your needs as well as your goals. Caloric goals and macronutrient composition influence the specifics of the meal plans.
The 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:
- A variety of tasty snacks
While participating in our fast track medical weight loss program, you will have weekly one-on-one office visits with a doctor or counselor. 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.
