Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is a one-hour visit and is required for anyone who has not seen us before.  A physical exam is performed and a detailed medical history is taken.  We review previous lab tests, current and prior medications used, and previous weight loss attempts.
The visit will conclude with a determination of the metabolic cause of your weight gain and with a plan on how we can achieve weight loss results.

Eight Week Plan

Following the initial consultation, a nutritional plan is then formulated. The nutritional plan is designed to be personal to you and made to meet your dietary preferences and underlying metabolic circumstances.
Visits are weekly and can be conducted in person, by video, and sometimes by telephone.  During these visits your progress is monitored, feedback and additional information is provided as you move into the next phase of weight loss.
By the conclusion of the Eight Week Session, a complete toolbox of methods can be used long-term.

Intermittent Usage

Having completed the Initial Consultation, some patients may wish to be seen periodically.  Examples of Intermittent Usage might be the following:
Eight Week Plan Follow Ups
Patients who have previously completed the Eight Week Plan may wish to make return visits to update their progress or for guidance on different approaches that may not have been previously explored. Intermittent Usage allows patients to be seen on an as-needed basis, depending upon the patient’s individual needs.
As Needed Use
Some patients, including those who have not previously undergone the Eight Week Plan, may wish to be seen for only a few sessions to acquire new information and insights into their weight issues. Intermittent Usage allows these patients to be seen for as few as one visit or more, depending upon the patient’s preference.
Medication Treatment Follow Ups
For patients whose primary goal is treatment with medications, visits are every 4 weeks for at least one month or until a stable dose is reached.  Visits are then arranged every 3 months while the patient stays on the medication.  In these situations, visits are scheduled as Intermittent Usage, one at a time.
Hormonal Therapy
Visits usually occur every 4 weeks while the dose is being adjusted and then once every 3 to 6 months once a stable, appropriate dosage is reached.
* In all situations of Intermittent Usage, patients are required to have undergone the Initial Consultation prior to booking any appointments under Intermittent Usage.


Pharmacologic Pathway

If medication therapy is needed, in-person visits will be required 4 weeks after starting the new medication and then every 3 months once a stable dose is reached.



Testosterone Treatment

Similar to medications, follow-up in-person visits are required. Depending upon the Testosterone treatment used, such as topical skin gels or injection, visits usually occur every 4 weeks while the dose is being adjusted and then once every 3 to 6 months once a stable, appropriate dosage is reached.

Our Approach

Metabolism Analysis and Correction
Most people who have explored weight loss are somewhat familiar with diets such as the Plant-Based Diet, Mediterranean Diet, Ketogenic Diet, and others.  Interestingly, most of these diets have much more in common than is realized.  They mainly avoid highly processed foods, particularly fast-acting carbohydrates.
Our plan is to blend the best aspects of each, tailored to your preferences and body chemistry.

The 2 Phase Approach

The first phase can last 2 to 4 weeks and is aimed toward correcting your body’s chemistry and metabolism.  During the first phase, many foods are restricted so that your fat cells are retrained.
As fat cells normalize and begin to react to food more properly, we then move into phase 2.  In this phase, your food options begin to look more and more “normal”, allowing for common foods of course prepared in ways that are healthy for you and not weight gain.   And again, once completed, we hope to leave you with an approach that will last you a lifetime.
Hormonal Imbalances & Testosterone Deficiency
As men age, Testosterone levels drop 1 to 2 percentage points per year.  Many times, declining levels of Testosterone may not have any noticeable impact on your health or quality of life.
However, sometimes Testosterone levels can decline to a level that can cause certain symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, poor libido, changes in body composition and difficulty with weight loss.
Testosterone Deficiency
For this reason, we may explore Testosterone Deficiency as part of the evaluation, especially when sustained efforts at weight loss have not been successful.  Testosterone replacement is then considered as part of an overall, comprehensive weight loss strategy.  We are careful in weighing the risks and benefits of Testosterone therapy, keeping in mind what is best for you overall.
Medications can play a role in weight loss and can work by suppressing appetite and/or increasing metabolism.  We follow FDA and Obesity Medicine guidelines when prescribing medications.
On average, patients may lose as much as 10% of their starting body weight, or as little as 5%.  Nonetheless, improvement in overall health can be seen with such modest numbers.
We view the use of medicines as a tool in the overall strategy of your weight loss program, with a comprehensive nutritional approach as the main emphasis.
The standard medications used include Phentermine, Qsymia, Contrave, Saxenda, and Ozempic.  Unfortunately, many medications are not covered by insurance plans, limiting their use in real life.
The Best Impact on Your Overall Health
Although by itself, exercise does not always lead to any significant weight loss.  However, the impact that it has on overall health is impressive.  Body composition improves and sensitivity to calorie intake can improve as well.  It also may help maintain weight loss in the long run.  For this reason, we like to incorporate an exercise program that would be enjoyable to you and one that you can stay with in the long term.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
Fasting is the intentional, controlled pursuit of calorie restriction for a defined, individually chosen period of time.  Fasting has been part of human civilization as far as history can be recorded and has been used for religious, medicinal, or philosophical reasons.
During the fasting period, the body can only rely on stored fat as the fuel source.  Although some people use intermittent fasting as their sole weight loss plan, we tend to use it as one tool in our arsenal.
We are knowledgeable with the various methods of IF and can help incorporate it into your nutritional plan.  Of course, fasting is optional.
Poor Sleep Can Negatively Effect Your Weight Loss Goals
The stresses of modern life has impacted the quality of our sleep.  Unfortunately, poor sleep can adversely impact our metabolism and make weight loss more difficult.
People who don’t get quality sleep tend to struggle with their weight.  Unfortunately, prescription medications for sleep, such as Ambien, only worsen the metabolic consequences of poor sleep.
We offer many suggestions on more natural approaches for sleep improvement depending upon the type of sleep disturbance that you may have.
An Important Key to Weight Loss
Labwork is important and helps us to customize your nutritional plans.   We encourage patients to bring in any labwork obtained by your other doctors.  When necessary we order lab work either through Quest, Lab Corp, or other facilities.
Helping Us to Provide Medical Weight Loss
As our name implies, our goal is to provide “medical weight loss”.  As part of our evaluation, we identify any potential weight-related issues that should be addressed.
These can include Diabetes, Hypertension, Sleep Apnea, Arthritis, Reflux, Depression, and others.  We offer advice on how to address these problems and how each may in turn adversely affect weight loss efforts.
