Red Ember Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center’s health coaches, nutrition counselors, and doctors don't use calorie counting to help clients ditch extra pounds. Rather, they do so by identifying the root causes of the surplus weight. During one-on-one consultations, they zero in each person's body chemistry and focus on resetting metabolism with dietary and nutritional modifications, as well as lifestyle advice, detoxification plans, and medical weight loss plans. Through these custom weight-loss programs, the professionals aim to reduce cravings and cure nightly habits of kicking the refrigerator.

ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
