Medical Weight Management Program
This 82 week program (20 months) is for people wanting to lose a minimum of 40 pounds and keep it off. By employing a meal replacement diet for a portion of the time, medical monitoring, weekly group sessions and more, the goal is to achieve life-long changes resulting in improved health. While using the meal replacement as a tool, this program teaches evidenced-based behavior change techniques that are associated with long-term results. This program requires a substantial financial and time commitment. We encourage you to sign up for a free orientation to hear an explanation of the program from the medical director, try the product and ask questions of past or present participants of the program. You can sign up for an orientation or get more information by calling (916) 614-4018.
