There are no shortcuts when it comes to losing weight and learning to live a healthier lifestyle. Effective regimens hinge upon a combination of medical insight, professional guidance and encouragement, and continuing education. Above all else, real-life change stems from a steadfast commitment to making changes and adjustments. All of these factors are taken into account by the professionals at Medifast Weight Control Centers, who use the most current understanding of weight-loss techniques to design personalized programs that complement individual needs and goals.
Going beyond traditional BMI measurements, the centers' technicians use Biospace InBody technology to obtain a detailed assessment of body composition, including muscle mass, body-fat percentage, water balance, and muscular development throughout the torso and limbs. Based on these data, the staff members are able to design a program that emphasizes the importance of a proper diet. These programs typically involve recommendations from the 70 available physician-developed meals, which are easy-to-prepare dishes that feature balanced servings of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll.
The meal regimens also aim to alter eating habits by encouraging clients to eat smaller portions at regular times throughout the day, controlling the cravings that can lead to overeating. Throughout each program, professional counselors will routinely meet with clients to ensure that they remain motivated and on-course.
Losing weight requires a 24/7 commitment, which is why BaroSolutions Wellness and Weight Loss’s online support hub never closes. Program participants can contact a nutrition coach 24 hours a day via live chat or phone to discuss their progress through the program’s fitness routines and three-phase meal plan, including specialty plans such as a 10-day detox regimen and plateau-buster meal plan. Further guidance comes from an ecookbook stocked with 365 recipes for dishes that contain less than 300 calories, which helps participants fulfill their nutritional goals without resorting to eating only paper-thin slivers of cheesecake. House-brand diet supplements accelerate the weight-loss process by suppressing cravings, which catalyzes fat burning. For in-person support, clients can visit one of the clinics in the wellness centre’s network, staffed by nutrition- and weight-loss-savvy professionals.

Each person's body is unique; it has its own features, its own responses to outside factors, and its own allergies. As such, no one nutritional plan can work for everybody. A diet must be as unique as the individual. That's where Dr. Serge Gregoire, owner of Mind Body Solutions, comes in. Through consultations and clinical tests, he analyzes each patient's eating habits and distinct irritants. Then, he constructs a personalized nutritional plan to help customers feel healthy and energized. Plans promote nutrients and vitamins, while saving people from the discomfort caused by incorporating an unhealthy amount of gluten or forks with no food on them.

Pam Ennis is a certified Nutrition Counselor, a Natural Food Chef, and regularly contributes to healthy-living publications such as Livestrong. Oh yea, and she founded her own business, Ylive Juice Bar. Pam takes a very friendly, straightforward philosophy toward helping her clients get healthier. "Progress, not perfection," she says.
Pam and her staff provide one-on-one consulting with every client who walks through the door of her Juice Bar. The goal is for clients to educate themselves on the benefits and possibilities that come from a juice cleanse. Outside of the consultation, Pam even maintains a Cleanse Computer Station, which clients can use to quickly reference different plans and choose the best one for their lifestyle. She also knows that a juice cleanse can be challenging, so she alleviates some of the difficulties by delivering juices to clients at their homes, offices, or super-secret cleanse yurts.
The specialists at Total Body Works, Inc. work to fight cellulite by sliding rollers over targeted areas during Endermologie treatments, using the French machine in attempts to stimulate circulation and break up the fat and water deposits that cause cellulite.
The staff at Intrigue brings lasers from the celluloid of science-fiction films to the clinical setting of the spa-treatment rooms. Technicians clear bodies of unwanted fuzz during laser hair-removal sessions powered by Cool Glide or GentleYAG lasers. They also work to erase sunspots, wrinkles, scarring, and spider veins during photofacial and skin-rejuvenation treatments. The Lapex BCS device takes treatments deeper, breaking down fat particles and flushing unwanted adipose tissue during LipoLaser sessions. Like a tractor beam used by an alien spaceship to abduct a farm hand, concentrated energy whisks away unwanted ink during tattoo-removal sessions.
