Medical Weight Loss at Capitol Contours | Alexandria, VA

6 WEEK 2 PHASE MEDICAL Weight Loss Program

Proper NUTRITION and WEIGHT LOSS will help enhance the results of the EMSCULPT NEO® and EMTONE® body contouring machines that TONE MUSCLES, BURN FAT and REDUCE LOOSE SKIN and CELLULITE more efficiently than traditional strength training exercises.

PHASE 1 FAST WEIGHT LOSS 
Lose 13-20 Pounds in 4 Weeks

Our medical weight loss program Phase 1 is easy-to-follow and our patients see results fast. Ideal patients have more than 20 pounds to lose. People generally lose 13-20 pounds per month.

You will eat five natural meal replacements and a portion-controlled protein and vegetable meal every day for four weeks. Meals may be prepared at home or at your favorite restaurant.

One hundred percent of nutrition is achieved because the foods are packed with vitamins and minerals. You also maintain muscle as you lose weight because the foods are high in protein and lower in carbohydrates. 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. The combination of following an easy system, learning healthy eating habits, not being hungry, and seeing weight loss results quickly will set you up for a successful transition and long-term success of maintaining your new weight.

If you are not interested in fast weight loss your dietitian nutritionist may recommend you skip PHASE 1 altogether and start with PHASE 2.

You will receive our PHASE 2 Meal Plans for Fat Loss book with meal plans and grocery store food lists and recipes.

METABOLISM TESTING

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.

How do I prepare

  • 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.
  • Do not use nicotine for 1 hour before your scheduled appointment. You can continue to take prescription medications.

Visit Includes Metabolism Testing / DEXA SCAN results with an explanation will be emailed to you. If you are on our six-week weight loss program, these tests will be done at the initial consultation and your dietitian nutritionist will explain your results to you.

DEXA SCAN

A DEXA SCAN is the GOLD STANDARD, most accurate method for determining body fat, lean muscle mass & bone density. It is significantly more precise than other body fat measurements. It is an excellent motivational tool because it will assess if you are losing the right type of weight, body fat, muscle mass, or both, unlike a traditional home scale which does not specify the type of weight you are losing.

Who should have a DEXA Scan?

Patients trying to optimize their metabolism by losing fat weight instead of muscle weight and athletes or avid exercisers who want to achieve a low ratio of fat to lean tissue mass. The DEXA Scan is also a great tool to help you keep track of your bone density to make sure you are not developing osteoporosis and keep track of your visceral fat, the bad fat surrounding your internal organs,  to help reduce the risks of heart disease.

How do I prepare

  • On the day of the exam, you may eat normally.
  • Do not take calcium supplements at least 24 hours before your exam.
  • Wear loose clothing. Avoid garments that have metal zippers, belts, or buttons.
  • You may be asked to remove dental appliances, watches, jewelry, eyeglasses, metal objects, wallets, keys, or clothing that might interfere with the x-ray images.
  • It is important to inform your x-ray technologist if you recently had a barium examination or have been injected with a contrast material for a computed tomography (CT) scan or radioisotope scan. You may have to wait 10-14 days before having a DEXA.
  • If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, you cannot do the DEXA Scan to prevent the fetus from being exposed to radiation.

How often should I have a DEXA Scan

The DEXA SCAN lean muscle mass & bone density test can be performed every 3-4 months to determine how well your nutrition and exercise are working and/or how effective your EMSCULPT NEO® or EMTONE® treatments are. It is not recommended to have a DEXA scan more than three times a year.

Visit includes DEXA SCAN/Metabolism Testing results with an explanation will be emailed to you. If you are a six-week weight loss program, these tests will be done at the initial consultation and your dietitian nutritionist will explain your results to you.
