Weight Loss Program


Since 2012, we have been offering a new, whole-body wellness service in our practice. It’s called “Take Shape For Life”, featuring Medifast Meals. Medifast was developed by doctors at Johns Hopkins University, and it is still offered as part of their weight loss program. That's great credibility!

As you are probably aware, the U.S. adult and child population are heavier than ever before. The number of overweight (greater than 15 lbs ideal weight) and obese (greater than 30 lbs ideal weight) adults is greater than 60-70%!

Carrying excess weight is a leading factor in chronic pain, chronic ill-health, and shortened longevity! Who wants that? Well, assuming you say 'Not me!', we have a path forward for you!

We'll not only help you safely regain a healthy body weight, but also help you learn how to keep it off! And that's very important, because 80% of people who lose significant weight regain it (plus more) within two years.This often happens because of a lack of knowledge about how to change your daily lifestyle habits.

Achieving 'Optimal Health' is Now Easier Than Ever!

"Optimal Health" is a whole new approach to well-being. It is based on creating health from within, using the "Take Shape For Life" program. The TSFL program helps you learn to make the right nutritional and lifestyle choices that will allow you to take charge of your health for the long term. Reaching a healthy weight is just the beginning – there is much more to come. Reclaim the control you once had of your weight, your body, your health, and your life! Be the best you can be and feel great again.

We’ll Help Coach You Along The Way!

Backed by clinically-proven research at Johns Hopkins University and other institutions, our program is physician-directed and medically-based. That makes it safer and more effective. You’ll have guidance throughout the program, providing encouragement and support, without mandatory group meetings or clinic visits! The doctor will coach you via email, text, or phone calls. And, TSFL offers both online support and telephone support with videos, group calls with Q&A (where you can just listen or ask a question), and health nurses for one-on-one consultations.

You won't have to do it alone! Support and encouragement is right by your side.

A Safe, Effective, and Balanced Program

The Take Shape For Life program features Medifast meals, which are high-quality and formulated with the correct balance of protein, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals. They contain no harmful additives or dangerous herbal supplements. Research has proven the Medifast program also beneficial for those who have high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and diabetes.

Now Is a Great Time For You To Start!

First, contact our office and schedule to attend a brief workshop or a one-on-one consultation with the doctor. You’ll learn the basics of the Take Shape For Life program. We will discuss your health history, help you set reasonable goals, show you how to use the Medifast meals in your particular case. We'll also answer any questions you have to help you feel comfortable and create a truly successful transformation of your health. And, you shouldn't have to be hungry to lose weight! With TSFL and Medifast, you won't be!
