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.
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.

The experts at LA Weight Loss understand the full breadth of the weight-loss process. Their counselors fuel clients’ drive to lose pounds—from the initial push to the last few difficult pounds—with moral support and custom diet plans that incorporate real, healthy foods instead of frozen dinners or icicle cocktails. In-store counseling helps clients tackle unhealthy habits head-on, and online support and chat rooms are always available to provide encouragement. The program’s metabolism-sparking beverages, lifestyle guides, and multivitamins sail directly to doorsteps faster than an Olympic runner hopped up on soy smoothies. A full palette of healthy recipes are complemented by nutritious meal bars and supplements packed with vitamins and minerals. Meanwhile, food scales, monthly diaries, and a portion-control kit help clients keep track of their eating habits and maintain accountability in their own homes.

As the seventh of eight children, Kim Osborne must have seen her fair share of bumps and bruises. Growing up with many siblings may have contributed to her decision to earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a pre-med emphasis. But nothing could have prepared her for the serious illness her third child experienced shortly after she was born. After an unsuccessful attempt to treat her daughter's condition with traditional medicine, Osborne turned to a local chiropractor. She was on the road to health within a few visits and Osborne has made it her life's mission to help others experience the same healing. Now a chiropractic physician certified in family practice, Kim Osborne, DC, has also received specialized training in acupuncture, botanical medicine, and women's health to better care for her patients.
