How Does Doctor-Supervised Weight Loss Work?

The physician-assisted weight loss program is comprehensive, considering all of the various factors that influence weight loss. Rather than aiming for a smaller dress size, we set targets designed to help you reach a new level of health, celebrating your body along the way.

Over 6 months, we will work with you to develop new, healthier habits.

Testing

Before we begin the program, our doctor will perform a full physical and run a variety of tests to ensure weight gain can’t be attributed to a range of health conditions. Then, we can choose the fat loss strategy that makes the most sense with your needs and lifestyle.

The Canadian food guide is not the most effective resource when it comes to losing weight. We will discuss a range of diet plans, helping you understand why some seem to work while others seem to fail.

We’ll work with you to make sense of your cravings and help you take a proactive role in your physical health. By providing you with a comprehensive fat loss education, we’re empowering you to evaluate all of your weight loss options and make an informed decision on what works best for you.

What Does the Program Include?
