It's easier for an unpleasant man made of non-biodegradable polystyrene to befriend an environmentalist than it is for many people to lose weight. Take the helping hand of science with today's Groupon: for $79, new clients get a comprehensive medical weight-loss package, which includes a one-month structured program (up to a $199 value) and four B-12 injections (a $55 value), at WeightLoss MD in Alpharetta, Dunwoody, Norcross, Atlanta, and Marietta.
WeightLoss MD specializes in creating safe, effective weight-loss programs to address the pound-shedding goals of individuals. Its staff comprises board-certified doctors, medical assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered dietitians, all experts in their field and eager to ease the weight-loss struggle. This Groupon covers a one-month program that consists of five visits with the WeightLoss MD staff:
Visit One begins with an invocation of the health Muse, paperwork, and tests, including blood work, an EKG, body-fat analysis, and urine analysis. The friendly staff will take weight measurements, check blood pressure, and offer a general orientation to the program ahead.
Visit Two involves a visit with a doctor or nurse practitioner to get a personal diet plan and program book. The doctor or nurse practitioner looks at the client's test results, prescribes appetite suppressants if deemed safe, and conducts the first of four B-12 injections.
Visit Three happens one week later (the subsequent two appointments will also occur in weekly intervals). Clients get their second B-12 shot and review their progress with a nurse, discussing any concerns as well as opinions on the local badminton team. Next, an optional one-hour consultation with a dietitian helps to further refine and personalize a diet plan.
Visit Four encompasses the third B-12 shot and another nurse-conducted progress check.
Visit Five concludes the B-12 shots with a fourth injection. Clients review their progress with the nurse and take stock, in ballad form, of how far they've come over the course of one month.
The clinicians and dietitians at WeightLoss MD, helmed by medical director Dr. John Ouderkirk, tip the scales in dieters' favor by employing lab test results and custom, one-on-one advice. Their client base is 85% composed of women, so they understand the unique weight-loss challenges posed to women, but they are just as skilled at helping men ditch unhealthy belly fat. Lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants can bolster calorie burning and control, and the meal plans are tailored to fit each participant's lifestyle, tastes, and mouth size.
