PHASE 1 of our program is FAST WEIGHT LOSS because you will see results much faster than traditional diet methods eating less calories with vitamin and mineral dense meal replacements while achieving nutrient goals necessary for optimal health. People generally lose 13-20 pounds per month. You will eat five natural meal replacements and a portion-controlled protein and vegetable meal you prepare at home or at your favorite restaurant every day for four weeks. This healthy diet creates a fat-burning state and naturally suppresses the appetite. This is not just a quick fix. Rather you learn healthy habits while you lose weight quickly.

PHASE 2 of our program is PORTION CONTROL WEIGHT LOSS. It is recommended to start this phase once you are 10 pounds from your goal weight. The natural meal replacements you were eating in PHASE 1 will be slowly replaced with a variety of healthy foods prepared at your home or favorite restaurant until you reach your goal weight. This entire process will teach you healthy eating habits for life long weight maintenance success.

Metabolism Testing determines how efficiently you burn calories by measuring your unique BASAL METABOLIC RATE (BMR). Knowing your UNIQUE BASAL METABOLIC RATE is important. Your BMR helps us calculate the number of calories you need to lose, maintain, or gain weight. Our metabolism testing technician on site will take your metabolism and tell you how many calories, carbohydrates, fats and protein you need to reach your weight loss goals. You will also have access to our body fat and visceral body fat STYKU body composition test at this time. We recommend an initial nutrition counseling session and/or our meal plans for weight loss book to help you choose meals and recipes for your weight loss goals.

  • Do not eat or drink anything for at least 4 hours before your scheduled appointment except for water.
  • Do not exercise for at least 4 hours before your scheduled appointment.
  • Do not drink caffeine or nutrition supplements for 4 hours before your scheduled appointment.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Do I have to have an initial weight loss consultation with a dietitian nutritionist if I participate in the 2 PHASE FAST Medical Weight Loss Program?
You do not, and can just purchase the PHASE I food, read the guide and receive the coaching, however if you have a medical condition we recommended meeting with the dietitian nutritionist or clear the program with your doctor

What is the difference between weight loss coaching vs. weight loss counseling?
Weight loss coaching is complimentary quick 7 minute check-in weekly call for patients on the PHASE I fast weight loss program who are on the Premier Club. Patients who do not fit this criteria may choose longer weight loss counseling visits which are 25 minute zoom sessions or in office visits. Insurance may cover these sessions/visits. Patients who have medical conditions and are on our medical weight loss program should choose weight loss counseling over weight loss coaching, as the dietitian nutritionist will have more time to spend. If you want support but do not qualify for free coaching, or maybe your insurance will not cover weight loss counseling or you do not want full 25 minute weight loss zoom or in office sessions you can pay for NUTRITION COACHING here.

How much weight will I lose in PHASE I & PHASE II of the 2 PHASE FAST Medical Weight Loss Program?
We have put thousands of patients on this program and find that females lose about 13-15 pounds the first month and males lose 20+. This slows down a bit each month. Once the patient reaches 10 pounds from their weight loss goal we transition to PHASE II. On Phase II patients lose 1/2 to 2 pounds a week depending on their height, age, weight and gender. Please note each patient is different, patients transition at different times, and there is not a one size fits all solution which is why you are provided with a coach who is a licensed dietitian nutritionist and well versed on this program and weight loss in general.

Do you prescribe weight loss medication
This program will suppress the appetite naturally so medication is not needed, however we do have a physician who will prescribe weight loss drugs

Should I schedule an initial dietitian nutritionist weight loss consultation if I am doing the SKYTU or METABOLISM Testing
At the SKYTU assessment you will be told your body fat, visceral body fat and bone density. At your metabolism test you will be told how many calories you need and how many grams of protein, fast and carbohydrates you will need based on your unique test reading. A 55 minute initial weight loss consultation will take your results a step further and you will be provided with dietitian nutrition advice on which foods to eat and how much of each food, supplement information if applicable, and answer all nutrition questions you have. If you only did the SKYTU test and not the metabolism test, you will still be provided with a guide of what to eat, the amount of calories you need to reach your weight goals will just be more of an estimate.

Do I have to start with PHASE I of the weight loss plan? Or can I lose weight without eating the food provided?
Yes, you can start with PHASE II if you have less than 15 pounds to lose, or you do not want packaged food. This is considered nutrition counseling. The dietitian nutritionist will meet with you for an initial weight loss counseling appointment and then follow-up nutrition counseling appointments. These appointments may be covered by insurance.

Can I have a medical condition and still do the weight loss program?
If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol this program may help you decrease your disease. It is important to meet with your dietitian at an initial weight loss consult and make sure they approve.

Is METABOLISM TESTING really necessary or can my metabolism be calculated another way?
Your dietitian will always calculate your metabolism using a math formula to determine the amount of calories you need at rest using your age, height, gender and weight. This number will be compared to the METABOLISM TEST, to predict if it is low, high or normal. Most times we see it is normal, but we do see some very high and very low metabolisms. With out running a metabolism test we will have a baseline using this equation, however it may not be as accurate as if we ran the METABOLISM TEST . If you think you have a low metabolism we recommend METABOLISM TESTING

If I do not want to lose weight, can I have a dietitian nutritionist visit for other issues such as an eating disorder, children nutrition including children weight loss, IBS, food allergies etc?
We work closely with a team of virtual dietitians who specialize in these and other medical nutrition therapy conditions such as eating disorders, LowFODMAP, IBS, food allergy, Type I Diabetes etc. Contact us and we will get you scheduled with the best dietitian nutritionist for your condition.
