Weight-loss programs begin with an initial complimentary consultation, during which knowledgeable counselors analyze clients’ metabolic needs and weight-loss goals to determine the appropriate program from the center’s six options. Certified diet counselors skillfully develop each plan’s specialized dietary menus, which often include common grocery-store items. Each weight-loss program includes vitamins, minerals, and one vitamin-B12 injection per week. Vitamin-B12 injections are designed to boost clients’ energy levels, potentially speeding metabolic rates to burn off fat.
Results vary person-to-person, depending on weight-loss goals.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers
Attempting to lose weight can be a challenging experience—one that’s made all the harder when attempted alone. Because they have a deep understanding of these inherent challenges, the counselors and medical personnel of Physicians Weight Loss Centers eschew dieting to-do lists for more interactive programs, taking the programs step-by-step with their clients to foster optimal results. Like a spotter at a gym, the staff keep their clients focused on their goals by hosting behavioral-guidance classes, scheduling personal meetings, and offering encouraging words as they attempt to bench-press the center’s physicians. In medical consultations, physicians chart clients’ personal chemistry and use the collected data to not only draft a healthy weight-loss program with flexible meal plans, but also a maintenance plan to help them keep the weight off.
