BEING OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE IS SERIOUS, COMMON AND COSTLY

The Medical Weight Loss Program is designed to help individuals attain their health and weight goals. Each program is highly personalized based on the individual’s metabolism, body composition and medical history. Treatment options such as behavioral therapy through diet and lifestyle modifications, nutritional counseling and meal replacement plans are available to ensure lifelong health maintenance. Medical weight loss is not surgery. You should consider joining the Medical Weight Loss Program if you have a BMI above 30 or a BMI above 27 with an obesity-related condition.

What is BMI? Body Mass Index (BMI) is a calculated indicator of body fatness using a person’s height and weight.
