Programs & Plans

Personalized Just For You

While The Center for Medical Weight Loss at the Veranda, provides a core program structure, it’s important to know that no two plans are alike. Because you are unique with your own personal physical and motivational characteristics, your personalized plan will not be the same as anyone else’s. That’s why the program works – because it has you as its center.

Program Structure

The basic structure of the program consists of three phases: Quick Start, Transition, and Maintenance. Within each phase there are four basic areas: food, exercise, behavioral counseling, and prescription medication.

During Quick Start

The food component of the program consists of a low-calorie diet that can only be prescribed by a medical doctor. You will be provided with the high-nutrient foods designed for rapid, safe weight loss. And with behavioral counseling, you’ll start to learn that you really do have more control over your decisions than you may have believed.

In the Transition Phase

You'll have lost weight and notice a difference in how you look and feel. The doctor will continue to prescribe a nutritional low calorie diet for you, but you will also start to add more of the foods you love back into your daily routine. The doctor will also monitor your levels of activity and continue to counsel you on making sound, healthy decisions.

In the Maintenance Phase

You've reached your personal weight loss goal! You're enjoying making smart meal choices, you're more active, leading a healthier life, and may be completely off of any prescribed medication to treat a chronic condition. It's the beginning of a life-long new you...
