At the Riverside Medical & Surgical Weight Loss Center, we treat the whole you. Our comprehensive 12-week medical weight loss program involves a thorough evaluative process, meticulous planning and close monitoring by our multidisciplinary team including our physician, dietitian, exercise specialist and behavioralist.
A diet should be a carefully planned program based on one’s individual needs and goals. Often, there are medical reasons why a person can’t lose weight. We work with you to find out why you can’t lose weight, ruling out or treating any medical problems, evaluating diets that haven’t worked in the past and developing a tailored program suited just for you.
Daily caloric intake is based on your basal metabolic rate (basal metabolic rate is the amount of daily energy expened when at rest.) needs to pop up definition: definition Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), and the closely related resting metabolic rate (RMR), is the amount of daily energy expended at rest. [Rest is defined as existing in a neutrally temperate environment while in the post-absorptive state.]
We ensure the doses of any medications you are taking and your calorie intake is adjusted accordingly, making your weight loss both safe and effective.
We have a program for you. If together we find the supplement-based program or the whole-food program is not an appropriate choice, either because of health issues or lifestyle choices, we will work together to modify the program to meet your needs. Usually this will be a combination of some supplements and some whole foods. It may also include a more intensive exercise or behavioral health program.
