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.

Lauded live on Dr. Oz for reducing inflammation and helping patients manage pain, Cryotek's Cryosauna envelopes clients in an open-top standup booth that surrounds the body with temperatures up -250 degrees Fahrenheit. Cryotek's researchers believe this exposure to cold—known as cryotherapy—during two- to three-minute sessions delivers many positive effects, including aiding clients with weight loss, cellulite reduction, and injury recovery. They also claim the Cryosauna supports other areas of physiological and even psychological health including reducing inflammation from arthritis, soothing irritation from psoriasis, reducing stress, and restoring libido. An FAQ page addresses queries ranging from what the treatment feels like to how it differs from kissing a snowman.
The crew of Advanced Spinal Care Center can take many approaches to ensuring backs are straight and free of pain—their job titles include board-certified medical physiatrist, doctor of chiropractic, exercise physiologist, and registered dietitian.

Attempting to lose weight can be a challenging experience—one that’s made all the harder when attempted alone. Because they have a deep understanding of these inherent challenges, the counselors and medical personnel of Physicians Weight Loss Centers eschew dieting to-do lists for more interactive programs, taking the programs step-by-step with their clients to foster optimal results. Like a spotter at a gym, the staff keep their clients focused on their goals by hosting behavioral-guidance classes, scheduling personal meetings, and offering encouraging words as they attempt to bench-press the center’s physicians. In medical consultations, physicians chart clients’ personal chemistry and use the collected data to not only draft a healthy weight-loss program with flexible meal plans, but also a maintenance plan to help them keep the weight off.
