Nutrition & Weight Management

Nutrition Counseling

Our dietitians are very skilled at helping patients with any special dietary needs. We work with health and lifestyle improvements, food and dietary allergy issues, eating disorders, sports and nutritional needs, oncology patients, and more. We also offer several specialty programs for weight management and work with patients before and after bariatric surgery for their unique needs.

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

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.


The Frederick Health Medical Group Medical Weight Loss practice accepts most insurances and may have out-of-pocket expenses. As a new patient coming into our program be sure to have a Physician Order Form from your referring doctor. We ask that you call ahead to your insurance company to make sure you understand your benefits for diabetes education and nutritional counseling.

What to Bring to Your Initial Consult

  • Your recent blood work results
