Our AVERAGE Weight Loss is 6 - 18 lbs./Month
We offer a:
3 Month Program 12 Weeks
6 Month Program 24 Weeks
12 Month Program 48 Weeks

After a 3 Month Program ......
A Month to Month Program is available upon recomendation of a Counselor. The details
are custom to each patient. This is an 'invitation only' program based on how compliant
(not weight lost) a paitent is during their program and how well they work with their
Counselor. The Discounted Program Extension is deeply discounted to help the
patient reach their goal and it is an advantage to be able to pay for the program
The Maintenance Program is a unique program whereby we work to establish the
"trigger foods" that will cause one to gain weight more so than others. The Maintenance
Program is ONLY open to those who achieve our goals (body fat and near scale weight)
or them. One cannot go into Maintenance unless at those goals. Leaving the program
prior to achieving those goals prohibits Maintenance.
The Maintenance Program is individually priced. However, most patients can "earn"
their Maintenance Program FREE of charge by consistently entering menus without
prompting, reporting in for their weigh ins in a timely (monthly way) or by invitation from t
heir own Counselor. PLEASE ask about the program.
Please ask before enrolling to learn what may be available to you.
