The metabolism of each individual is different. It is important to measure it precisely in order to design an optimal weight loss plan. In our clinic we don't guess your metabolism, we measure it using state-of-the art machinery! This is done directly and with great precision.
The test is not only painless and quick but is also quite powerful.
Our Physician Nutrition Specialist will measure your specific basic metabolic rate, the number of calories your body needs to maintain all basic physiological functions, and a safe calorie deficit for healthy weight loss. Measuring your metabolism directly will help us design a successful weight loss plan, tailored just for you.
Weight loss should not mean muscle loss. And it doesn't - in our clinic. We use state-of-the art, fast and non-invasive body composition analysis devices to determine the levels of muscle, fat and water in each part of your body. This allows us to design optimal nutrition and exercise plans, so you lose fat tissue while maintaining your muscles.
Our Medical Exercise Specialist can even design exercise plans specifically for gaining muscle mass. To track progress, we repeat our body composition tests at the end of each block to precisely determine your losses and gains.
Have you read about new weight loss medications recently and want to see if they are right for you? Or are you skeptical? You need a board-certified Obesity Medicine Specialist trained in proper use of weight loss medications to answer these and any other questions you might have.
Pharmacotherapy should be done in a very personal manner. Only a trained specialist, just like ours, knows exactly how to prescribe any of the several FDA-approved weight loss medications available, and tailor them to your needs if necessary.
