Medical Weight Loss

Adult Weight Loss Programs

For adults ready to make the lifestyle changes to lose weight, we offer two options for weight loss programs. Both programs include weekly weigh-in and group education sessions, behavioral assessment and coaching and the assistance of a navigator in helping you stay on track.

  • A Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) program that requires comprehensive medical monitoring is offered for those who have 40 or more pounds to lose. This program uses a nutritionally complete beverage as your sole source of nutrition.
  • A Low Calorie Diet (LCD) program is offered that incorporates a combination of healthy foods and/or meal replacement beverages and snack products.

Utilizing meal replacements can produce substantially greater weight loss than traditional diets by simplifying meal choices and creating structure.

To schedule your medical weight loss orientation, call us at 240-215-1474.
