How The Program Works
Valley Medical Center will create a comprehensive personalized weight loss program tailored just for you. This includes body composition analysis, doctor-supervised food plans, metabolism regulation, appetite management, lifestyle and motivational coaching, science-based activity recommendations and much more.
After your initial consultation, your CMWL Doctor may prescribe one of the following plans and personalize it to your specific needs and preferences:
- Accelerated or Accelerated Plus
- The Accelerated plan includes six weeks of one-on-one visits with your CMWL Doctor, simple medical tests to monitor your weight loss progress, and a high-nutrition calorie controlled food plan. Accelerated Plus also includes vitamin regulation.
- LCD or Modified LCD
- The Low-Calorie Diet (LCD) is a high-nutrition calorie-controlled plan your doctor will prescribe for you and monitor closely. The Modified LCD is the same plan, but adjusted to include a calorie-specific dinner that may include your favorite foods
- Appetite Suppressant
- Jumpstart your CMWL weight loss plan with an appetite suppressant prescribed and monitored by your CMWL Doctor.
Why The Center for Medical Weight Loss?
Unlike commercial weight loss programs, medical weight loss is designed to take more than just the food you eat and activities you do into account. Only a medical doctor can truly understand how your unique health profile contributes to your weight loss challenges, but also how it can be used to help you achieve success. The doctor will study your medical history, prescriptions, hormonal imbalances, metabolic rate, and multiple other medical factors to design a weight loss program specifically for you.
Once you understand how medical weight loss works, you can feel confident that your CMWL Doctor is the most qualified physician to help you achieve your weight loss goals. CMWL Doctors have received the most in-depth, comprehensive medical weight loss training available. Not only do they understand the physical aspects of weight loss, but have been trained to address any behaviors holding you back from reaching your weight loss goals. This means you will have a high-skilled, supportive, and caring medical expert on your side, helping you to lose those initial pounds quickly and safely and teaching you to keep them off for good.
