A lot of clients come into our office, desperate to lose weight or inches quickly. Often their question is, “Can you fix me now? I am desperate!”
They come in desperation for various reasons: some want to look good for a High School reunion, a wedding or a planned cruise or big event. Some clients have more serious reasons: - they are at risk of losing their job.
For the past two years we have been recommending the Take Shape For Life program. I am confident that patients who adhere to the program will lose weight quickly and safely. At Silk Touch Med Spa we use the program in various ways.
Pre-liposuction to get a patient to the desired weight (generally a BMI of 30 or less)
Post- liposuction to keep the weight off.
As an alternative to liposuction.
The successes of our clients have been simply amazing. More importantly, patients have been able to make a "lifestyle change" to keep their weight off. They learn to eat more frequently and to eat smaller portions. They also learn about other aspects of their personal wellness, a healthy body is not about just being skinny.
The program consists of five meals a day with one additional "lean & green" meal that can be eaten at any time during the day (think of it as a snack). The replacement meals are high in protein which helps to keep the client from getting hungry. Generally, hunger is felt in the first 1-3 days, but most of our clients find that after that three day window, they've adjusted to the smaller meals and feel quite satisfied!
Most of our clients drop 2-5 lbs. a week very easily.
After the client loses their desired weight they go on a maintenance program where they begin adding regular food. Many of them continue to use the high- protein Medifast bars or meals long after their initial weight loss because they are easy to prepare or carry with them and very satisfying. It's nice to be able to substitute a bar for a meal when the scale starts to creep up a bit.
We've had so many success stories that we want to share some of their testimonials:
“I’ve done them all (diet & weight loss programs)…..Take Shape For Life was easy for me with fast results. When my doctor told me my cholesterol was 287 and wanted me on medication, I knew I had to lose weight and get my health back. Three months, and 42 lbs. lighter, my cholesterol is now 180 and no meds!
I had forgotten what fun you can have in a dressing room! I feel great!”
“Medifast really works! I lost 30 pounds and 17 and a half inches in just under 3 months! Donna Berg was very supportive and there for me when I really needed her. I highly recommend the program for anyone who wants to see weight loss results in a few months and wants to learn to eat healthy again.” – Jan, Boise
“I started Take Shape For Life in March of 2010 and Lost 30 pounds in three months and have kept it off for almost a year. The program was super easy and the support from Susie and the staff at Silk Touch Med Spa was amazing. The program made eating simple and stress free. I was most impressed with this weight loss method over others because it seemed to make sense as a lifestyle change and not just a quick diet fix. I have to say the best part is how much better I feel overall- my knees are especially thankful!” — Dorothy Hope
