Led by two doctors, the medical staff at Island Health Weight & Wellness has spent the last 19 years driving patients toward weight-loss goals with custom weight-loss programs. All programs start with a comprehensive patient assessment that covers past medical history, physical-activity habits, and sleep patterns. Clients choose a personalized plan such as the Traditional Plan, which focuses on weight loss through table foods; the Quick Start Plan, which indulges followers with five to six snack-size meals a day; or the Optifast plan, during which patients eat prepackaged approved meals and meal-replacement foods. By following these plans, clients can start the journey toward a slimmer physique while also helping to prevent or reverse weight-related medical conditions better than bowling 300 with a cinder block.
