Weight loss

Successful weight loss relies on burning more calories than are consumed, whether from eating less, being more physically active, or a combination of both. While it may sound easy enough, in practice many people find that losing weight and keeping it off can be quite challenging.

Benefits of losing weight

Losing weight can be difficult, but it’s worth it for the wide variety of physical and mental benefits it brings. Shedding excess body fat can decrease the risk of:

Dropping a few pounds also means less stress on your joints, which increases flexibility and mobility. Weight loss may also reduce depression, social anxiety, and stress, and it can boost your self-esteem.

Medically supervised weight loss

A quick internet search reveals lots of diet options available to those looking to lose weight. But for many people, it's hard to know which choice is best for them or where to begin on their journey to improving their health.

This is where a medically supervised weight loss program can prove invaluable. It can help you overhaul your eating habits and discover a new, permanent, and healthier lifestyle.

The program

The program begins with a comprehensive physical examination and lab tests for additional information. Next we create a personalized diet plan suited specifically for your situation. You’re also given a Clean Start Weight Loss® program kit and medications.

Over the next several weeks, you log what you eat in a provided food journal and return to the office weekly for check-in appointments and modifications, if necessary. Measurements and body composition are tracked using innovative InBody® technology.

To rev your metabolism and get rid of fat faster, you may also receive fat-burning lipotropic injections that include special vitamins and amino acids.


The best possible results come from adhering closely to the prescribed diet plan and attending the weekly appointments. If you do these things, you can lose anywhere from one-half to one pound each day on average for the length of the treatment.
