Much like the world's worst British accountant, the folks over at Southlake Laser Lipo do one thing well—help people lose pounds. Armed with the Lapex 2000 BCS laser, they attack fat at the cellular level to keep weight at bay permanently. All without ever making an incision, the techs precisely target deposits to slim areas that seem immune to exercise or dieting, such as love handles, thighs, and fingers.
The professionals at Innovate Health circumvent the gastrointestinal tract when they deliver health-boosting vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients intravenously. They flood the body with an appropriate amount of micronutrients—including B12, C, zinc, glutamine, and oleic acid—according to tests that measure needs with patients' white blood cells. The nutrients work to boost the immune system, metabolism, and nervous system. Additionally, the staff offers a detox program that works to remove a harmful buildup of toxins in the body, such as molds, chemicals, or preservatives.

The Jenny Craig Program provides people with nutritious, heart-healthy foods, a personal consultant, and a plan specially tailored to helping them attain their desired weight. Clients meet with a Jenny Craig consultant to assess their current eating habits and to create a scheme for shedding superfluous pounds. Then, the week-one planned menu unfolds like a paper airplane made of phyllo dough (items in blue are included in the plan, and orange items are recommended additions). A sample day starts with the Breakfast Scramble, a mound of scrambled egg whites and turkey ham topped with melty low-fat mozzarella and served over diced red potatoes. Lunch is beef chow mein, which is packed with vegetables (broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, and rooglebetas) and remains unpacked with calories (it has only 220). Dinner brings the comfort of macaroni and cheese and tops it off with a cookie for dessert.
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.
