Houston Weight Loss Center offers a medically prescribed nutritional weight loss program to help you achieve your weight loss goals*.
After medical history is obtained during your initial visit to Houston Weight Loss Center, a patient is taken and a physical examination is completed, Our experienced physicians and/or nurse practitioners will recommend a low calorie diet based on estimated BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate).
We calculate your estimated BMR using our Tanita 310 scale, which has a 600-pound capacity. Our accurate scale gives body composition that includes percentage of body fat and BMR.
On the basis of the patient’s BMR, Houston Weight Loss Center’s diet experts recommend a weight loss diet between 1000 and 1500 calories per day. This weight loss program is composed of regular foods, with a focus on foods with a low glycemic index and healthy fats. We feel that a diet similar to the Mediterranean Diet is the healthiest way to lose weight and keep it off.
A low calorie diet, with the aid of FDA approved appetite suppressants, combined with some easy to learn “lifestyle changes” can make your weight loss journey quick but more importantly, sustainable.
We encourage the increasing the intake of high fiber vegetables while cutting down on foods containing “bad-fats”. Weight loss supplements are prescribed and weight loss is charted by our expert panel of healthcare providers at Houston Weight Loss Center.
