What You'll Get
Genuine weight loss does not happen magically overnight, unlike real visits from the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus. Slim down under the guidance of palpable professionals with today's Groupon: for $129, you get one month of comprehensive weight-loss counseling at Monarch Medical Weight Loss Center (a $349 value for new clients). This Groupon is valid at locations in Eugene, Salem, Roseburg, Albany, and Portland.
Practitioners at Monarch empower patients to make long-term lifestyle changes with nutrition-focused, personalized plans that lead to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and weight loss. Like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Monarch's program sprang fully grown from the craniums of seven emergency-room doctors who noticed the prevalence of weight-related problems at home and at work. The one-month program begins with a private 90-minute consultation with a medical practitioner who reviews medical history and tests cholesterol and body composition to determine the path to a patient's target weight. Newly knighted health warriors leave the clinic armed with a specialized diet and food journal, food planning menus, and an Arabian steed, as well as exercise regimes and pharmaceutical prescriptions if appropriate. Patients return each week to weigh in, assess progress, and adjust the program as necessary—clients can request their original practitioner.
Following Monarch's proactive approach to nutrition, patients help pancreases with blood-sugar regulation by munching on five to seven protein-rich mini meals each day, making this program safe for diabetics and ideal for toddler bodybuilders. To facilitate adoption of this approach, each clinic houses a nutrition store purveying high-protein, low-calorie prepared foods, many of which are also vegetarian and gluten-free. Clients in the Jump Start program sup mostly on Monarch's meals, and those in New Beginnings supplement home cooking with Monarch's essential nutrition items, including metabolism-boosting vitamin injections and horsepower-boosting gummy jet packs.
This Groupon's value ($349) is based on the initial month's cost for new clients; customers choosing to continue with Monarch's service do so at $99 per month.

About Monarch Medical Weight Loss
Weight loss can be a challenge in many people's lives—including that of Dr. Eric Spencer. After shedding 40 of his own unwanted pounds, he founded Monarch Medical Weight Loss with a team of fellow doctors and now serves as chief medical advisor of the nonsurgical clinic system. Many of the practitioners and staffers have triumphed at their own slimming efforts, serving as both inspiration and role models to their patients. The diet programs at Monarch Medical Weight Loss range from quick jump-start plans to full, lifelong memberships, all incorporating healthy, educated eating and sensible behavior modification. Pound-dropping success stories can be found on the website, as told by firefighters, grandmothers, couples, and retired dumbbells.
