Metabolic Health & Weight Management

Helping you achieve long-term weight loss success

148102689Weight loss can be one of the biggest life challenges you face, as it’s often a complex problem requiring a multi-faceted solution. Making the right decision, understanding what works for you, staying motivated and actively engaged with your physician are all important parts of achieving long-term success. Our medically-supervised Metabolic Health & Weight Management Program offers a coordinated approach to provide the support and resources you need to safely lose weight, and keep it off. We bring together a group of experts, including physicians, clinicians, integrative medicine practitioners, a nutritionist and a psychologist to address the questions and concerns many women face as they try to lose weight. We’ll work closely with you to develop an effective plan that’s tailored to your needs – one that can include surgical solutions, medically supervised weight loss, products, support, behavior modification and nutrition education. Our comprehensive weight loss program offers three options for your medical weight loss needs. Dr. Fitch, medical director of the Metabolic Health & Weight Management Program, will help you determine which plan is best for you.

  • The Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) is a liquid fast designed for women with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. (Calculate your BMI.) This diet helps you lose 3-5 pounds each week by restricting carbohydrates so the body converts fat into fuel.
  • The Low Calorie Diet (LCD) is a good choice for women who do not want to follow a full liquid fast diet. LCD combines the liquid diet with one at-home prepared meal a day. Geared to help you lose 2-3 pounds a week, this plan also focuses on creating and sustaining a healthy lifestyle.
  • The Healthy Living Plan aims to help women lose one pound per week. We’ll work with you to create a diet and exercise regimen that enables you to expend 500-1,000 more calories than you consume every day, resulting in your desired weight loss. Medications may also be used to help you feel full and eat less, when combined with healthy eating.
