To tackle the diverse needs of their clients, the weight-loss team uses scientifically based methods that stress the habits needed to keep weight off permanently. For more medically complex cases, they work with a physician, rather than consulting with a roguishly good-looking TV doctor."Everyone is different," says program coordinator Tara Duque, noting that getting to the root metabolic causes of health issues is "the key to unlocking your goals, getting to them faster, and maintaining them."
