PHASE 1: WEIGHT LOSS

DURATION: 2–12 MONTHS

Your LeanMD Care Team will utilize all available medical tools to help curb your appetite and optimize your metabolism. On average, patients lose 10–15 pounds in the first month and 30 pounds in three months.

You may choose one of the following options, depending on your individual needs and schedule:

A. Monthly Pre-Paid Plan

This choice requires weekly in-office visits to receive an optional lipo B12 injection and a one-month supply of prescription appetite suppressants. You will also receive additional face-to-face nutrition counseling and support during your visit.

B. Flexible Schedule with Virtual Option

This choice gives the option of alternating between in-office visits and virtual visits by telephone. You will be required to get a LeanMD Wireless e-Scale to virtually monitor weight twice per month. Any in-office visits will include an optional lipo B12 injection and a one-month supply of prescription appetite suppressants, as well as additional face-to-face nutrition counseling and support.

PHASE 2: TRANSITION

DURATION: 3–5 WEEKS

It is imperative to go through a proper transition to stabilize your new weight after all of your hard work during the weight loss phase. With a scientific analysis of your basal metabolic rate, we will help you to taper off of any appetite suppressant medication, adjust macronutrient ratios, increase calorie intake and physical activity, and adapt to a new lifestyle.
