Sentinelle Health Group helps clients slim down and get healthy through its My Life in Balance program, which provides a thorough health assessment and weight-loss meals from Ideal Protein. During an hour-long consultation ($100), a Sentinelle nurse administers blood pressure and cholesterol tests and measures variables such as height, weight, hip circumference, and uvula length. Armed with this information, Sentinelle can recommend a personalized nutrition regimen based on individual medical needs and personal goals. The health-care professionals can also dole out a week's worth of Ideal Protein products—healthy, balanced meals designed to promote weight loss without sapping muscle mass or coal reserves by tapping into the body's stores of energy in fat cells ($125). Clients on the program may shed an average of three to seven pounds per week while gaining confidence and energy.
