Medical Weight Loss Program

At Physicians Weight Loss Centers, our medical weight loss programs consist of a four-phase process that ensures your results. The four phases of our medical weight loss program include medical screening/pre-diet, active weight loss, stabilization, and our STAR (Steps to Avoid Regain) maintenance program.

Building and maintaining muscle during weight loss is crucial to weight loss success. With typical weight loss programs, you lose water weight, then muscle, and finally fat. This is not the approach we want you to take. 

This can trigger a starvation response in your body, which results in slower weight loss, increased appetite, and rapid weight gain. The PWLC weight loss program specifically prevents the loss of muscle and promotes fat burn, resulting in fat loss only.

Throughout the entire program, you will be supported by our trained, compassionate staff. This is a journey, and we plan to be with you every step of the way.

Pre-Diet – Phase 1

During phase 1, we will start with your body composition analysis and a medical screening that includes labs and an EKG. You will then meet with our physician for a physical and medical consultation. 

Not all diets are for everyone. At PWLC we make sure that your weight loss plan meets your personal, medical, and lifestyle needs. We also get to know you. We find out about your interests, the foods you prefer, and those you dislike. Next, you’re set to move on to phase 2.

Active Weight Loss – Phase 2

In phase 2, your will embark on a personal weight loss journey that will burn your body fat down to a healthy level. You’ll meet with a PWLC weight loss counselor each week for guidance, support, and diet modifications. We will ensure that you are continuously lose weight during phase 2.

Together we’ll create a diet plan that works for you – one that you’ll stick with for the long term. While you’ll implement your new diet at home, you won’t be alone. We will help you every step of the way. We would like to see you at Physicians Weight Loss  one, two, or more times a week if possible.

Don’t feel pressured. You can come by and meet with our weight loss counselors anytime; we are here to offer support during your weight loss journey. The more you come to Physicians Weight Loss, the more weight you lose.

Stabilization – Phase 3

Active Weight to Stable Weight Loss Management

During the stabilization phase, we will ween you off of your weight loss diet. Because you’re almost at your goal weight, we’ll create a new diet plan with increased calories. Our goal is for you to stop losing weight. At the same time, we’ll work with you so you don’t gain back any of the weight you previously lost.

What is our reason behind this? It’s simple. Many times, when patients lose weight, they don’t know what foods to eat. In many cases, they return to their previous behavior of eating too many calories and, ultimately, they start to gain weight. This is why we tailor a new diet plan to keep you at your goal weight.

Weight Loss Maintenance – Phase 4

In the final phase of the medical weight loss program, your focus is on maintaining the weight you lost. And remember, you aren’t doing this alone. At Physicians Weight Loss in Columbia, Maryland, we offer one year of free STAR (Steps to Avoid Regain) weight loss maintenance.

You can come in as often as you like to meet with a nutrition counselor to discuss your calorie intake, diet balance, and exercise. We will continue to offer strategies to prevent weight gain and boost the self-confidence you acquire by being in control of your eating habits.

You will also learn self-monitoring techniques during your weight loss maintenance phase. Our team will continue to provide the support you need.

When you enroll in one of our medical weight loss programs, the length of your program will be determined by you and the staff based on the amount of weight you want to lose and how quickly you want to lose it.

Your actual weight loss will be determined by many factors, including your medical circumstances, the plan you choose, adherence to the meal plan, and use of nutritional supplements. Your goal and program duration information will be given to you in writing at the time of enrollment.

As your program progresses, the rate at which you lose weight may change and you will have the opportunity to discuss this at every visit with your weight loss consultant, where changes to your meal plan and/or program can be made.
