At VIP Medical Services, your total health and well-being are of the utmost importance. As obesity rates continue to increase, we see related issues such as Type 2 Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cardiovascular complications, and joint pain are also prevalent. We are excited to be able to offer a solution to our patients and the entire Ozark and Springfield area, for those that may be struggling with obesity, weight loss, or any of their related issues.
By offering a Very Low Calorie Diet plan, we are able to provide our patients with the opportunity to take part in a safe, effective, affordable weight loss solution. This program has proven effective over the years, with a plan for success comprised of 4 steps:
1. Screening: Evaluation of patient’s readiness to begin a Very Low Calorie Diet.
2. Reducing: The “Weight Loss” phase, primarily utilizing meal supplements to successfully limit caloric intake while saving the patient from feeling hungry. During this time focus is also placed on healthy lifestyle education and modifying current food related behaviors.
3. Adapting: Grocery foods are slowly reintroduced to the patient’s diet to allow new habits to be put in action.
4. Maintenance: Ensuring the success of the weight loss plan continues after reintroduction of regular foods. With new healthy lifestyle changes in practice, we make sure the weight stays off!
With weekly check ins done by Dr. Holt and his team, weight loss patients are able to receive regular support, counseling, and monitoring to ensure success. If you feel that a Very Low Calorie medically supervised weight loss plan may be right for you, we invite you to give us a call at 417-485-4847 for a free consultation.
