No matter what you’ve tried in the past, our patients at Vanguard Medical Group are finding successes with our weight loss counseling services.

Screenings

Before weight loss counseling at Vanguard Medical Group begins, we determine a starting point with screenings that indicate each patient’s readiness for weight loss. These screenings analyze several factors that show the patient’s current state of health and may explain why weight gain has occurred, or why it’s been so difficult for the patient to lose weight now or in the past. These factors include:

  • Current weight and Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Hormone levels
  • Dietary deficiencies
  • Discussion about patient’s relationship with food
  • Physical and mental health history, including a family history
  • Ongoing medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disease etc.

Nutritional Counseling

Formulating the proper diet with our nutritionists and dieticians is where your journey to weight loss will truly begin. Depending on the results of your screenings, we will customize a nutrition program utilizing our methodical approach that will have you shedding the pounds in no time. Our nutrition counseling includes:

  • Personalized meal plan designed to help you lose weight the fastest
  • Recipes for vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians and more
