Medical Weight Loss by Healthogenics' three-step process helps weight-loss-seekers shed bulk and maintain their svelte figures through proper nutrition and supplemental lipotropic injections infused with vitamin B12. First, the professional medical staff conducts thorough medical evaluations, including a full-body-composition analysis and an individual consultation to discuss weight-loss goals. Using this information, as well as dietary needs or restrictions, the physician creates a custom weight-loss plan specific to each slimmer.
The stabilization phase comes next, when the condemned fat has been banished and the doctors discontinue the prescription of appetite suppressants and other pharmaceutical aids. Trained specialists continue to offer weekly support to help dieters stay on course.
Weight-loss maintenance, the program?s end goal, leaves folks feeling healthier, slimmer, and ready to sport horizontal stripes on their wedding days.
Chef Lee Linton has sliced, diced, and sizzled up countless gourmet dishes for more than 30 years. He combines this hefty culinary experience with his passion for nutrition to craft 1,200- and 1,800-calorie meal plans designed to help health-conscious eaters like himself stay in tiptop shape without sacrificing taste or quality. Linton only uses fresh ingredients, shying away from the frozen, dehydrated, or astronaut-friendly ones often used in other premade meals. The menu, which is approved by an on-staff dietitian, rotates regularly, and meets the guidelines set by the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Cancer Society. After Chef Linton and his team prepare the dishes within a USDA-approved kitchen, they’ll ship the meals directly to clients’ homes or prep them for pickup at one of Fresh ‘n Fit’s 37 locations.

At Cobb Wellness Center, board-certified physician Dr. Linda Kelley and her staff use fast, FDA-approved Botox to iron out facial furrows in a matter of minutes. Equipped with 20 units of the injectable line leveler, Dr. Kelley administers the serum across one troubled area, such as between the eyebrows, around the eyes, or straight into the nearest ugli fruit. Burrowing deep into tension trouble areas, the purified protein relaxes the muscles responsible for frowns and squints to smooth the overlying skin. Afterward, wrinkles slowly recede over the following days, revealing a placid patch of pelt that may stay free of turbulence for up to four months. Minimally invasive and requiring no downtime, the injections are ideal for those wary of cosmetic surgery's invasive nature or the recuperation period associated with facial sandblasting.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
