Are you a candidate?
The majority of patients that come to Your Wellness Center are looking to lose between 5-25% of their body weight. These individuals typically have a BMI of 27 or above and have been diagnosed with co-morbidities such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and high cholesterol. Many individuals come to Your Wellness Center searching for an alternative to Bariatric Surgery and to alleviate joint pain and body aches associated with excessive weight.
Patients who come to Your Wellness Center often struggle with food choice, nutrient timing, portion control, grocery shopping, emotional eating, binging and self-discipline when dining out.
Candidates for the program are most successful when they are highly motivated by impending social events, health concerns as well as the desire to enjoy a better quality of life with their families. It is vital that those who enroll in the program are compliant with the program designed for them and that they find a strong support system to help them with the journey.

How the Programs work
1.Initial Consultation Appointment
Your Initial Consultation for the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program will provide time for the medical provider to answer all your questions. During the Initial Consultation, the provider will review your past medical history, current symptoms, past dieting attempts as well as develop a plan of action based off the two programs discussed above. Before the Initial Consultation Appointment, we ask that you complete the Medical History Form so that the provider can screen the application to determine if any metabolic bloodwork needs to be reviewed at the time of the appointment. You can fill out the Medical History Packet here.
If bloodwork is necessary, we ask that you have a blood draw 1-2 weeks before the appointment. You can schedule to have your blood drawn at Your Wellness Center or any LabCorp Inc. at your convenience.
2.Monthly Follow-Up Appointments
Follow-Up appointments occur twice a month. The purpose of the follow-up appointment is to review current progress, make adaptations to the personalized plan and to go over any questions and/or concerns that you may have. The follow-up appointments are designed to last 30-45 minutes.
As patients progress through the weight loss program, they begin to incorporate traditional menu planning, grocery shopping and cooking that aims to provide steady weight loss or help maintain ideal levels.
The Nutritional Education Program utilizes a meal replacement(MR). Meal Replacements are prescribed by the providers and in such case, patients will only be able to purchase the meal replacements while in the program and before the expiration of their customized program.
At a point in the program, if the dietitian determines that the patient has reached a maintenance level, future scheduled visits will be at the discretion of the dietitian. While in maintenance, patients are able to purchase meal replacements as needed.
Here at Your Wellness Center, we understand that weight loss success does not necessarily start and stop with just diet and exercise alone. There may be numerous other inhibiting factors such as hormonal imbalance, antidepressants and cholesterol medications, untreated hypothyroidism…etc. With that in mind, additional services may be suggested for you to reach your wellness goals.
