Why choose medically supervised weight management ( weight loss) program?

  • Millions of Americans struggle with weight management. Obesity is a disease that is taking over our country at an alarming rate.
  • There is no US state where the obesity rate is less than 20%, and in Southern states it is close to 50%.
  • The state of Alabama has an obesity rate of more than 40%, and in children it reaches 18%.
  • Obesity has definitely become a public health crises. Weight gain is not something to take lightly because of what comes with it:
    type 2 diabetes, hypertension, infertility, osteoarthritis, cardio-vascular diseases and sleep apnea.
  • The extra weight also increases the chance of more than 40% of cancers.

The weight management guidelines were developed by the American Obesity Association ( AOA) and former US Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett Koop’s anti-obesity campaign.

The treatment guidelines were reviewed and approved by leading obesity experts, and major public health, nutrition and medical organizations around the country. It defines obesity as a public health crisis that should be met through physician and healthcare provider intervention and treatment, especially for patients whose weight puts them at risk for health problems such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, infertility and certain cancers.

I am Dr. Liliya Slutsker and I have been working with these patients first hand in primary care for many years. It is a difficult task for many primary care doctors to address a patient’s weight problem in a regular office setting for many reasons: most patients make primary visits to address a symptom of obesity rather than the root cause of these weight related health problems, or the weight issue is just too sensitive for some patients to discuss, and time in a primary care setting is often too short for doctors to adequately address all the information patients will need to successfully start and finish a weight management plan.

Because of these constraints for doctors in primary care, I felt compelled to address these health issues by starting a weight management clinic in my own neighborhood that allows me to help my friends and neighbors.

Our Carrington Medical Spa

Our goal at CMS is to create a calm, pleasant environment to address weight issues in the most sensitive way. Our patients benefit from treatment protocols and programs, which are in close accordance with AOA treatment guidelines.

We offer cutting-edge programs and products to accommodate our patient’s needs: a logical progression of treatments geared to the severity of each individual patient’s weight condition.

Our medical approach represents an important step in getting the public to change its view of obesity. Viewing obesity and weight problems as a health risk issue rather than an embarrassing issue enables physicians to save lives. Obesity is a chronic condition that requires long term treatment.
We support, encourage and help patients to choose a weight management program that is personalized to each individuals health and lifestyle.

Don’t wait to lose the weight!

With nutritional products and strategies available only to physicians, The Carrington Medical Spa’s Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program offers results that commercial programs can’t compete with. Our physicians and staff at Carrington Medical Spa are dedicated to helping you lose weight quickly and safely, but most importantly, to helping you keep the weight off.

Comprehensive program of Carrington Medical Spa

Because no two patients are exactly alike, our weight management programs are tailored to each individual patient. According to each patient’s weight loss needs, our programs can be structured with weight loss tools like; special meal plans, pharmaceutical medication coordinated along with meal programs, identifying and solving different issues with food addiction, identifying slow metabolism, treating chronic health issues, learning behavior modification material and physical activity and exercise materials.

  • Meal plans can vary. Patients can choose very low calorie diet plans, basic low calorie diet plans, ketogenic diet plans, vegetarian diet plans, and gluten free diet plans. Patients who desire more structured plans can employ and incorporate nutritionally designed protein meal replacements, or protein supplements, or individualized grocery shopping lists.
  • Medical supervision (administered by a physician and other medical professionals) include lab testing and medical monitoring, contraindications and side effects.
  • Nutritional education materials including plans that help patients to understand how to eat healthy and have a positive relationship with food, and step-by-step guidelines to gradually change to more positive eating patterns and behaviors.
  • Behavior modification materials that lead to a healthier lifestyle by helping patients increase self-esteem and improve self-image, to handle stress without using food, to deal with emotions, and take personal responsibility for food choices.
  • Exercise programs help patients to increase daily activity levels using easy and practical exercise routines. These routines are gradually introduced and built upon so that patients can develop an individualized exercise plan for life.
  • Maintenance program provides patients with the opportunity to confirm a lasting commitment to a permanent healthy lifestyle.
    Relapse prevention strategies are provided along with ideas to expand on the new behaviors learned during the weight management program.

Weight Management Program Phases

We have outlined most important phases of weight loss program:

Screening phase
The screening phase consists of various medical, laboratory and psychological tests to ensure that each patient is both medically and psychologically able to participate in our weight management program.

Reducing phase
The reducing phase is used to help patients lose weight under medical supervision, utilizing meal replacements exclusively, or grocery food plus meal replacements, or grocery food and protein supplements between meals. These tightly structured formats provide healthy nutrition and allow for safe and effective weight loss while reducing high calorie, high fat, high carbohydrate food choices. Eliminating or reducing food choices while learning to change eating behaviors is the key to this phase. Once a patient’s past destructive eating behaviors are pinpointed and changed, the patient will be better able to handle long-term weight management.

Adapting Phase
Once the patient has successfully lost the excess weight, the adapting phase is introduced. In the adapting phase, more healthy meal choices and a variety of foods are slowly but progressively introduced back into the patient’s diet over a four to eight week period.
This phase prepares the body physically for long-term food processing as well as mentally for the behavioral and lifestyle changes necessary for life long weight maintenance.

Maintenance Phase
In the Maintenance Phase, the patient will return to traditional eating patterns. The protein supplements or meal replacements will be slowly phased out, or used once or twice daily as a maintenance tool.
Strategies to prevent weight regain are discussed and reinforced for long term weight loss maintenance. Relapse prevention plans and practical tips for weight loss management are utilized in the maintenance phase. During this phase, it is important for the patient to stay connected with the program where support, guidance, reinforcement and problem solving strategies are continually provided.
