At Total HealthcareMD, we do not believe there is a “one size fits all” approach to weight loss diet plans. Typically, the most widely popular and heavily advertised diets only yield short term results. Cookie cutter weight loss diet plans do not address an individual’s specific schedule or eating and exercise preferences. Our weight loss diets are personalized to cater to your unique needs, preferences, and personality.
How are our weight loss diet plans different?
Most weight loss clinics use one type of weight loss plan known as very low carb diet programs (VLCPs). This a low calorie, protein sparing plan that simply varies depending on an individual’s weight and height. These clinics falsely believe that VLCPs are individualized.
Total HealthcareMD offers multiple, unique weight loss diets including a VLCPs, Paleo, and Vegetarian plan and special options for individuals who are looking to improve their weight because of diabetes, pregnancy, and postpartum weight gain. Each of our diets is created to suit every patient’s individual needs and tastebuds.
How do we design our custom weight loss plans?
New patients are required to sit down with our medical professionals for a 90 minute consultation. During this consultation, you will meet with a registered dietician to discuss your work schedule, likes, dislikes, home and family situation, and more.
We will also perform an in-depth analysis of your previous diet history, commitment to exercise, susceptibility to seasonal and hormonal eating changes, and mental health. Once we get a feel for your particular lifestyle, we will work with you to create a custom weight loss diet that will work best for you.
What is indirect calorimetry and how does it help customize a weight loss diet?
Indirect calorimetry is a technology that accurately calculates your metabolism to help the healthcare professionals at Total HealthcareMD determine how many calories you should consume on a daily basis to lose weight and keep it off. When we develop weight loss diet plans, we use this data to create a customized approach that is right for you.
What type of support can be expected?
Total HealthcareMD treats each patient as an individual. Therefore, you will receive friendly counseling and support with your weight loss journey every step of the way. Our one on one counseling services will help ensure that you are on the right track while giving you the opportunity to express your questions and concerns with a knowledgeable, compassionate weight loss expert.
