What You'll Get
Early humans had a variety of weight-loss options: they could burn calories fleeing from wolves, cut back on their diet of wolf meat, or have parts gnawed off by wolves. Explore more pleasant methods of lightening up with today's Groupon: for $99, you get four weeks of physician-supervised weight loss, including four shots of vitamin B6/B12, at Blue Sky MD in Chattanooga (a $359 value).
Blue Sky MD helps its clients drop pounds using a phased approach that's tailored to each person's individual needs. Although results will vary, Blue Sky reports its patients achieve average weight loss of 20 pounds or more during their first month of the program, making it ideal for anyone with a wedding or high-school reunion on the horizon or a puppy trapped in a narrow air-conditioning vent. For clients who choose to continue the program for 16 weeks (all weeks after the initial four are subject to regular pricing) results of 100 plus pounds have been reported. The four weeks of treatment proceed according to the following plan:
Week 1: Clients receive a medical evaluation, including EKG, blood testing, hormone-level assessment, and body-composition analysis. Trained counselors help plan a weekly menu and exercise regimen, and clients receive the first injection of vitamin B6/B12, as well as prescription appetite suppressors if necessary.
Week 2: Further lifestyle and menu planning and another round of B6/B12 injections follow a review of body composition and blood work.
Week 3: The third B6/B12 shot is administered, and clients are encouraged to further discuss diet and exercise with a weight-control counselor.
Week 4: The B6/B12 injections are concluded, and clients are advised on lifestyle and relapse prevention. At this point clients can also decide to continue with the program for a complete 16 weeks (regular rates apply).
Blue Sky doesn't force clients to eat prepacked, processed meals but instead encourages them to consider their eating habits and daily activities and to educate themselves on their own health in case it's ever the subject of a game-show category. Overseen and administered by a calorie-hunting team of physicians, counselors, and dietitians, Blue Sky's supervised method can be targeted to mothers, diabetics, and those with a wide variety of dietary restrictions.
