Who It’s For
Medical nutrition therapy is for people who are overweight, and those with certain health conditions. It is also fitting for individuals who have had certain weight loss procedures, such as ESG, and need guidance and ongoing monitoring to keep off the weight and maintain a healthy living style.
How The Program Works
The initial step for medical nutrition therapy is a comprehensive evaluation by our bariatric physician and registered dietician. Patients receive a baseline and quarterly InBody body composition analysis, and a customized diet plan. In addition to individual caloric goal measurement, guided by Indirect Calorimetry, patients are also prescribed pharmacotherapy by NEW You’s bariatric physician. Follow-up visits are recommended at two-week intervals.
How Much Weight You’ll Lose
As part of medical nutrition therapy, NEW You’s physician and dietician help patients set nutrition goals. Many patients lose around 1 to 1.5 pounds a week, depending on adherence to the diet and pharmacotherapy plans. The quarterly InBody body composition analysis, and consistent reviews of your eating and exercising habits, all assist in tracking progress, with adjustments to the plans being made as necessary. The goal is to help patients make positive, long-term lifestyle changes for sustainable weight loss.
