Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can I expect to see results?

Though it depends on your specific circumstances and health concerns, most patients lose weight within the first two weeks and continue to reduce their weight as they continue with the CMWL eating plans and behavioral counseling. Adding exercise to your routine can also help speed up your rate of weight loss.

How long do I have to stay on the CMWL program?

The length of time you may stay on any weight loss program depends on which program you are on, how much weight you need to lose and – most importantly – how motivated you are. As you know, weight loss is not about a "quick fix." When you move from the initial phase of any weight loss program to maintenance phases, the goal is to establish healthy eating habits you can follow throughout your life. The programs at The Center for Medical Weight Loss at The Veranda are comprehensive and include behavior modification and counseling, as well as exercise recommendations created to help you achieve on-going success.
