If you are serious about losing weight and achieving your health and wellness goals, you’ve probably tried other weight loss programs like Jenny Craig diet, Nutri-System, Weight Watchers, Mediterranean diet, Atkins diet, or South Beach. What these and many weight loss programs have in common is that they lack the one element crucial to your success in achieving a healthy weight — the supervision of a board-certified physician experienced in the field of weight management.
Our ultimate objective is to help you achieve long-term wellness and overall health through our individualized weight loss program which consists of custom meal plans, healthy eating habits, and one-on-one nutritional counseling to support weight loss, change eating patterns, and reduce cardiovascular risk factors.

Our weight loss programs are different from others because each one is customized to meet your individual needs. Obesity is a chronic medical illness that needs a comprehensive, medically supervised weight loss program to treat effectively. Safe management and maintenance of weight loss goals are guaranteed when done under a supervised program supported by comprehensive behavioral changes.
Our programs are effective because they help suppress hunger and don’t rely on willpower alone. They also don’t eliminate food groups – they simply adjust your metabolism. This, in turn, changes your body chemistry and makeup, resulting in a healthy weight. Each customized meal plan consists of essential components designed to achieve safe weight loss in as little as a few weeks – and keep it off for life!
How do we help you do this? One of our Nutrition Educators will give you a specific calorie-controlled, personalized meal plan that will help provide all of the nutrients you need to sustain a healthy lifestyle along with enjoyable physical activity. This will assist in helping change your body chemistry as well as achieve a better fat-to-lean-muscle ratio.

Based on your lifestyle, food preferences, and dietary restrictions, our specialists will guide and support you on your weight loss journey. We’ll provide coaching on nutrition and food groups, helping you learn the health benefits of incorporating more healthy fats, lean meats, whole grains, fatty fish, plant-based dishes, healthy carbs, and more. We can also help you find alternatives to processed foods that fit within your day-to-day eating pattern and support a healthy weight.
Your personal weight loss journey might include one of the following programs or a combination of more than one weight loss program. Each diet program has been carefully reviewed by our board-certified physicians for its scientific backing and supported health benefits.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carb diet. This diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates through a process called ketogenesis. It is a great option in the first 3 months post-HCG diet in order to continue losing weight while adding healthy fats back into the diet.
Intermittent fasting, also known as caloric restriction, involves eating only during a particular number of hours per day. Typically it is recommended to eat only in a 6-8 hour window and consume non-calorie drinks during the remaining hours. Intermittent fasting does not eliminate food groups – rather it can promote weight loss as well as help lower blood pressure, reduce blood sugar, and reduce heart disease risk factors.
Giving your gut a break from digesting food helps to allow your body to repair and heal. It may also be included to help people achieve long-term weight loss goals. Dr. Hakkarainen recommends testing for food allergies and checking probiotic balance to have a more comprehensive picture of gut issues.
