We will answer any and all questions you may have.
Transition is when you will gradually increase your calorie intake as well as your physical activity level. Medications, if any, will be monitored closely and adjusted as needed. You will learn how to self monitor your weight, and we will also space out your visits.
During maintenance, you will have the confidence and all the tools you need to keep your weight stable. You will have a better relationship with food, and you will have the energy to keep up with your physical activity level. We will continue follow-up appointments so that you do not re-gain the weight that you have lost.
