MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

If surgery isn’t the right choice for you at this time, you can still find weight loss success at Northwest Weight & Wellness Center.

We offer a range of options to help you lose weight, keep it off, and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Our New Life Weight Loss Program® is a non-surgical, medically-based weight loss approach tailored to your specific needs and focused on your success.

Our multi-disciplinary weight loss program is a combination of individualized nutrition and exercise planning, one-on-one counseling, educational and support groups, and prescription medication. All under one roof.

Our medical weight loss program is run by a comprehensive team of specialists dedicated to bariatric care. All of our providers work in sync to develop and execute your personalized plan.

When it comes to successful weight loss, one program doesn’t fit all.

Your uniquely designed plan includes:

  • A comprehensive intake with a Registered Dietitian, Exercise Physiologist, and Advanced Practice Provider.
  • As a part of your intake visit, we will conduct a biometric screening exam to evaluate your resting metabolic rate and your body composition, which will help identify your body’s unique caloric needs. This information will be used by the specialists to build a customized plan which fits your lifestyle.
  • Customized meal planning with your Registered Dietitian based on your medical needs, goals, and lifestyle.
  • Monthly visits with our team of weight management specialists will help keep you on track.
  • A range of lab tests are performed to help the practitioners determine what treatments are right for you and your unique challenges or needs.
  • Access to an online App which is built specifically for the bariatric community to help streamline, track, and communicate with your dietetics team between visits.
  • Monthly support groups with your peers designed to provide education and support in a setting which fosters shared experiences and feedback.

The New Life Weight Program® is also a good option for surgical candidates who must participate in a medically supervised diet prior to weight loss surgery.

OUR COMPREHENSIVE NEW LIFE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM® ALSO INCLUDES:

PRESCRIPTIONS

Medication, such as appetite suppressants, is often prescribed to help with weight loss. These prescriptions work very well in conjunction with a lower calorie diet, and increased physical activity. Medication is prescribed in conjunction with a personalized, appointment-based approach to care.

LAB WORKUP

A blood test offers insight into biological processes and body functioning that can contribute to difficulty with weight management. These medical insights will be used to craft your personalized weight loss plan.

METABOLIC AND BODY COMPOSITION TESTING

This simple test provides insight into your body composition and resting metabolic rate, or RMR. The RMR shows how many calories your body burns each day so your provider is better able to customize your weight loss plan.

BREATH ACETONE TESTING*

The level of acetone in your breath can reveal how much fat your body is burning. This measurement shows how well your body is responding to your nutrition plan even when you don’t yet see results on the scale. *(due to COVID this testing may not be available)
