Medically Guided Weight Loss Program
Our Pretty Faces Atlanta Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program utilizes diet and medical counseling, hormone modulation, appetite suppressants and a mixture of vitamins, minerals and supplements to assist with an approximate 1lb/day weight loss for 30 days. Sensible low-calorie (non-carbohydrate) meals are designed for the patient, low intensity exercise regimens are introduced, along with diet and meal planning instructions. Weekly B12 injections are included with the program (8 total). After the initial 30 days portion of the program, the patient continues with our tailored program for the next 30 - 60 days, with the goal of weight stabilizing and a "re-set" of the patient’s metabolism.
For patients with an elevated BMI that still need to decrease their body weight, additional rounds of supervised weight loss can be attempted, however patients must participate in after care and weight stabilization.
The primary goal of our supervised weight loss program is metabolic stabilization, which allows the body to utilize consumed energy more optimally while minimizing long term storage (STOP building fat). Meal plans and exercise schedules are tailored for the patient with easy to reach goals and instructions.
Some patients in need of weight loss have specific medical conditions such as Diabetes, Hypercholesterolemia and Hypertension, we have devised programs in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle recommendations (and restrictions) from the American Dietetic Association, the American Heart Association, and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Considering your external health is often a reflection of your internal health, it is most important that we tackle both head-on. We really mean it when we say "We understand your pain!" Every one of our staff members, including our providers, has struggled with weight loss. It it truly an "up and down" battle. We have all been there.
