We concentrate in obese/overweight patients that have medical conditions like hypertension, elevated blood pressures, high blood cholesterol/lipid levels and heart disease. We understand the impact of these diseases and are focused on the root cause.
Let’s be honest. When was the last time you were on a diet and what were the long-term results? The reality is that millions of people struggle with weight loss and maintaining their ideal weight. The facts show that most people will regain their weight back within 5 months after stopping a diet. However, at the Weight Shop™, we are there to help you every step of the way to ensure you follow the maintenance plan.
Consider what your life would be like if your weight was no longer your main focus. You feel good about the way you look, increased energy, complete or significant relief of physical pain associated with excessive weight. At the Weight Shop™, we can work with you to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
65% of the American population is overweight and 31% are obese. These alarming numbers can be accredited to several factors, slow metabolism as a result of sediment lifestyle, aging related to a decrease in hormone levels and abundance of easy access to unhealthy foods. Wellness Centers are popping up all over the country; however, do they treat all of the contributing factors of weight gain? Are these programs physician supervised?
When it comes to weight loss one diet doesn’t fit all. The biggest problem with most weight loss programs is they don’t address the long term (maintenance) only short term. In the short term, there is weight loss and fat loss, but with most diets lean muscle is also lost. Lean muscle helps control the body’s metabolism or fat burning mechanism. When lean muscle decreases so does metabolism. Most diets ultimately cause the metabolism or fat burning process to slow down through this loss of lean muscle. This why when individuals come off their diets they tend to “yo-yo” or rebound diet. These diets are a quick fix and may work temporarily, but not long term, leaving us with a sense of defeat. We all can relate to the feeling of hopelessness and how painful this can be to a person.

Our staff of highly trained medical professionals truly understands weight loss. We work to educate, motivate, and provide support to help every client achieve his or her ideal weight.
