For many, shedding unwanted pounds can be daunting and time-consuming. But at Intelligent Lipo of Orland Park, it’s neither, thanks to its i-Lipo treatments.

Administered by board-certified Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Robert William Wrona, i-Lipo can help to shrink clients up to two dress sizes after eight sessions—in conjunction with exercise—while also smoothing their cellulite and boosting their confidence to streak at an upcoming local sporting event.

Clinical staff at The Center for Health and Nutrition design custom dietary plans that aim to drop one to five pounds from clients’ frames each week. During the initial consultation, a body composition test analyzes five areas to determine the body’s lean tissue to fat ratio, propensity to harbor extraterrestrials, and basal metabolic rate. A registered dietitian then creates a customized eating plan based on the client’s eating habits and body chemistry, incorporating 21 nutritionally complete OptiFast liquid meal replacements over the course of six weeks. Staff will also assess progress and modify the plan as necessary during three 15-minute follow-up sessions. Consult a list of frequently asked questions to discover more information about the program and learn how to fashion a DIY windsock from newly loose pants.

Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets. In addition to the four-phase long-term plan, the clinic also offers body-sculpting services such as wraps and LipoLaser.
