At Monaco Center for Health & Healing, Dr. John B. Monaco and his staff of certified weight-loss counselors assist clients in shedding pounds through the Ideal Protein weight-loss plan. At the introductory seminar, Dr. Monaco expounds upon the four-phase Ideal Protein program, employing pyrotechnical displays to convey the weight-loss potential of cutting carbohydrates from the diet. Clients sample nutritious dishes during the seminar to get a feel for the meals included with the program. A personal weight-loss counselor then meets with waist-whittlers weekly for 15 minutes or longer to field nutrition questions and discuss progress in weight, body fat, muscle mass, and antler growth.
