What Is Medical Weight Loss?

The Benefits of HydraFacial Treatments 

Understanding Medical Weight Loss

How do we define medical weight loss? Medical weight loss refers to proper nutrition, behavior changes, and increased activity that is monitored by a trained physician to achieve weight loss and maintain it. In 2012, we opened our doors to provide customized weight loss programs to the community. At Athena Wellness Center, we empower our patients to change their lives by providing education and individualized plans. Learn more about our different weight loss tracts below. 

Exercise Programs

Physical activity is very important for weight loss. We know that every lifestyle is different, which is why we work with you to build a program that will allow you to succeed. We will also make recommendations based on your health and physical capabilities. Some of the DVD programs we offer include P90X, Brazil Butt Lift, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer, T25, TurboFire, Turbo Jam, Slim in 6, and Hip Hop Abs. 

Weight Loss Surgery Support

Another form of weight loss is through surgery. Surgery can be helpful for those who struggle with losing weight that is threatening their health and wellbeing. There are two ways in which weight loss surgery works: malabsorption and restriction. Malabsorption occurs when food is diverted from a part of the small intestine, making it so fewer calories are absorbed. Restriction occurs when a person feels full on small portions of food due to the inability of the stomach to stretch to its normal size. Our center will be on your weight loss journey with you and can formulate a plan before and after your surgery to ensure you are on a path to a healthier lifestyle. 

Nutrition Programs

Nutrition is an essential part of living healthy. We have designed the Low Carb Meal Plan, which allows you to lose weight safely and maintain the weight loss. This plan is a combination of real food and high quality nutritional supplements. You may be wondering what the structure of this meal plan is. For breakfast, patients will consume a Low Carb Meal Plan meal replacement. Lunch consists of a Low Carb Meal Plan meal replacement and 2 cups of vegetables. Dinner calls for a protein source of your choice and vegetables and you can also enjoy a snack after dinner, choosing a Low Carb Meal Plan product. This plan is great for people who need to lose weight for health reasons, those restarting on their weight loss journey, and those who want to see rapid results.
