Programs and Plans


Weight Loss Programs Personalized Just For You

While Doctors Weight Loss Center (DWLC) provides a core program structure, it’s important to know that no two DWLC plans are alike. Because you are unique with your own personal physical and motivational characteristics, your personalized plan will not be the same as anyone else’s. That’s why the program works – because it has you as its center. These plans that advertise to “everyone” are just not to be trusted or believed, they’re too generalized and may have little to no effect on you.

Weight Loss Program Structure

The basic structure of the program consists of three phases: Quick Start, Transition, and Maintenance. Within each phase, there are four basic areas: food, exercise, behavioral counseling, and prescription medication.

During Quick Start… the food component of the program consists of a low-calorie diet that can only be prescribed by a medical doctor. You will be provided with the high-nutrient foods designed for rapid, safe weight loss. And with behavioral counseling, you’ll start to learn that you really do have more control over your decisions than you may have believed. You CAN make yourself go for a walk instead of grabbing that snack like you always have in the past.

Portion Control

In the Transition phase…you’ll have lost weight and notice a difference in how you look and feel. The doctor will continue to prescribe a nutritional low-calorie diet for you, but you will also start to add more of the foods you love back into your daily routine. (Our Doctor’s Orders low-calorie home delivery meals make this even easier.) The doctor will also monitor your levels of activity and continue to counsel you on making sound, healthy decisions. With food a lot of it comes down to calories and portion control, it’s not all about what you’re actually eating.

In the Maintenance phase…you’ve reached your personal weight loss goal! You’re enjoying making smart meal choices, you’re more active, leading a healthier life, and may be completely off of any prescribed medication to treat a chronic condition. It’s the beginning of a life-long new you… At this point, you should be ready to hold yourself accountable for your health for the rest of your life, but if you find yourself struggling at any point don’t be afraid to come back to us!
