We are beginning the between months of the weight loss calendar – between dieting to look good in a bathing suit and taking off post-holiday pounds. Why not put the time to good use? Weight you lose now will put you ahead of the curve in January.
The Center for Medical Weight Loss in Mount Pleasant offers a medically supervised regimen customized for each patient. Every program begins with a complete body composition profile. Then resting metabolism is calculated to determine the appropriate daily caloric intake and expenditure for healthy weight loss.
“We meet with each patient and discuss everything from medications to shopping,” explained Dr. Loren Frankel, the program director. “We have three programs patients can choose, depending on their motivation and finances. We have patients who have success with one plan and transition to another to reach additional goals.”
Yvonne Gregory, an active 58-year-old participant, struggled to lose weight on her own but did well with the structured program. She lost nearly 30 pounds for her high school reunion. “It is nutritionally balanced so you don’t have to worry about not getting the important vitamins. This has been a wonderful thing for me,” Gregory said.
Ari and Christina Buchanan are a typical American family: two young children and two full-time jobs. They weren’t interested in a fad diet, and knowing an experienced physician was directing their efforts was a comforting thought.
“We learned the strategies together and we watched out for each other,” said Christina. “We needed a healthier lifestyle, and Dr. Frankel’s program took us in that direction.”
The team at the center is available to help participants use their time wisely, focus their efforts and come out the other end of the “between” knowing they are healthier and feeling good.
