The supportive weight-loss professionals at Elite MedSpa help clients shrink waistlines with individualized weight-loss plans, counseling, FDA-approved medication, and nutritional supplements. During the initial appointment, medical professionals take health histories and perform physicals, blood work, and EKGs to help them personalize each client’s plan or ghostwrite clients’ autobiographies. Results in hand, staffers design personalized weight-loss programs, including nutritional and exercise guidelines and suggested dietary supplements. An injection of vitamins B6 and B12 boosts metabolism, and, if indicated, an FDA-approved medication reins in a rampant appetite, saving vulnerable baked goods from annihilation. One week later, a follow-up visit measures progress, replenishes supplements, medication, and vitamin B levels, and supports the client as they approach their weight-loss goals. Most participants lose an average of 5–10 pounds during their first week and 15–20 pounds during their first month of participating in the program, but results may vary.
