There are several options available to you. Your plan may involve full meal replacement, partial meal replacement, or a detailed calorie plan using your own food, specific to your metabolic needs. For some patients, an FDA approved medicine may be used to help decrease your appetite, decrease cravings, increase your metabolism, or make you feel more satisfied with smaller portions. Our medical providers will help you choose the medication best for your needs. Dr. Pinto is a nationally recognized expert in obesity medications.
Full or partial meal replacement is done with our convenient and tasty portion-controlled products stocked on site. They contain high-grade protein and are nutritionally balanced, so that you may safely reach your weight loss goal.
Your follow up appointments will be either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on the plan you choose. At each appointment, which lasts approximately 15 minutes, your provider will monitor your health and progress, measuring your vital signs and doing a brief exam. Any medical issues will be addressed at this time. Counseling on lifestyle changes, explanation of metabolism and how you body processes the food you eat, and general weight loss information will be discussed at this visit.

Her best advice to those who want to start?
“I simply followed the program and Dr. Pinto’s advice to achieve where I’m at now. I NEVER thought I would reach a point in my life where I exercise daily and have an entirely new healthy lifestyle. In the beginning, my goals were small – I just didn’t want my weight to impact my health any longer. I am happy to say that I have achieved that and so much more!”
