Here at NorthShore Weight and Metabolism, we take care of all your metabolic needs- we can assist with weight loss, better lifestyle habits, or oversee any endocrine conditions such as diabetes, thyroid issues, PCOS or osteoporosis to include a few.
If you are looking specifically for weight loss, you will first meet with our Director of Nutrition for a consultation. She will discuss your goals, and tailor a plan that will fit realistically into your daily life. If your preference is aggressive weight loss, you will have the opportunity to participate in a medically supervised VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet), or LCD (Low Calorie Diet) which utilize primarily high quality meal replacements. We can also modify your program if preferable, designed with more grocery food, while utilizing both meal replacements and protein nutrition supplements to support more gradual weight loss. The New Direction® meal replacement products meet the highest quality standards, and are designed exclusively to meet an individual’s nutritional needs. At the core of our program are weekly individualized one on one meetings with our Director of Nutrition, a well trained health coach/nutritionist with over 25 years experience. In addition we have Zoom classes that cover a range of topics including mindful eating, nutrition, lifestyle habits, exercise, and medical topics related to metabolism and weight loss. While successfully losing pounds, you will discover skills, behaviors, attitudes and resources which will support new lifestyle changes for balanced, healthy eating and living. As you start your new, healthier life, our long-term weight management plan will include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and protein sources and regular exercise. We strongly emphasize the importance of long term support to maintain your results. Your success is our goal!
For some individuals considering a surgical approach to weight loss, we can provide counseling to assist you with your decision. Often prior to a surgical procedure, patients are advised to enter a medically supervised meal program for a short term leading up to surgery. This serves to initiate weight loss, as well as improve certain health aspects that can decrease complications and better ensure a safe experience. We are happy to accommodate pre-surgical individuals into our weight program, to help start the weight loss process.
