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.
