Weight Loss and Nutrition Q&A

What does a weight loss and nutrition plan offer?

Your weight loss and nutrition plan begins with your doctor consulting with you to learn about your family medical history, personal medical history, nutritional habits, what your lifestyle is like, and how much exercise you get.

Your weight loss and nutrition plan is customized to match your personal situation, with plenty of input from you about what works best for your lifestyle and habits. Once your plan is in place, Dr. Dekel monitors your progress regularly to make sure it’s working. Adjustments can be made throughout the process to make sure you get the best results possible.

Once you reach your goal, a long-term maintenance plan is established to keep your health and successful results on track.
