The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
As a former personal trainer and fitness model, Jillian Panzella knows what it takes to shed pounds, especially since she fought her own battle against weight-loss. After having a child, Jillian gained 50 pounds, but she managed to shed the extra weight in just 12 weeks by following her own transformation plan, which she now shares with others at Jillian Panzella Nutrition. Her plan takes a holistic approach to nutrition and wellness, focusing on making lifestyle changes such as eating nutrient-rich foods, exercising regularly, and reducing stress, which can lead to emotional eating.
Jillian's nutrition packages are tailored to each client's personal needs and can accommodate a wide breadth of schedules and goals. For instance, she offers her general one-, three-, and six-month programs, as well as the more specific pre- and post-natal programs. She also adds an extra-special touch with VIP services, which include customized grocery-shopping lists and pantry makeovers, in which she makes pantries runway-ready.
