Denver Medical Weight Loss Programs
At CNC, we recognize that each individual has gained weight for a variety of different reasons. A “one-size-fits-all” approach is unlikely to be successful. For this reason, we have always emphasized the importance of an individualized medical weight loss program.
Quick, simple medical weight loss program without pills. Optifast foods offer 100% of the RDA for all nutrients while limiting calories and maximizing fullness.
Quick medical weight loss program with real food. May use protein meal replacements as well as lean meat, fish, fowl and non-starchy vegetables.
Quick medical weight loss program but more variety. While still emphasizing protein through meal replacements and food, fruit and dairy are added back in as well.
A customized solution based on your preferences. Results tend to be less rapid than the above choices, as variety and flexibility are emphasized.
WEIGHT LOSS MEDICATIONS
Weight loss medications are a safe and effective way to improve weight loss and weight loss maintenance. For people with a BMI of 27 or more, weight loss medications can be used as part of your comprehensive weight loss program to help you lose weight and keep it off.
For many individuals, maintaining weight loss poses many more challenges than losing the weight in the first place. That’s why we have so many tools to help you with long term success.
20 Week Treatment Plan
Most patients at CNC desire to achieve the maximum amount of weight loss. To make things simple, the 20 Week Treatment Plan is a medical weight loss program that includes all of the recommended medical tests (labs, EKG, body composition measurements, etc.), weekly office visits (one a month with a medical provider, others with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) and behavior modification lessons. Any of the food plans may be used, although most patients choose an Optifast or Modified Fast program. This program has a fixed weekly cost to simplify budgeting and provides a 10-20% cost savings. Note that foods and medications are not included in the fee for the Treatment Plans.
à la carte
You are also welcome to participate in a traditional fee-for-service model of care. This may suit you if you do not require all of the services included in the 20 Week Plan.
