During your one on one consultation, Dr. Soni will discuss the results of a variety of diagnostic procedures, including an exam, hormone levels, health history, metabolic testing, body composition analysis and food sensitivities, to determine individual health risk factors and other issues that will allow him to design a personalized program for you. With the mission of removing the obstacles standing in way of lifelong weight management.
We offer a wide range of quality weight management programs created to help you lose weight “safely, efficiently, and effectively” and maintain your weight loss long-term. Each of our programs will be customized specifically to accommodate your medical conditions, physical limitations and personal health goals. Every program incorporates a comprehensive approach to your health and well-being such as, reduced calorie diets, full meal replacement, lifestyle modification, medications, fitness, nutrition, specialty tests and hormone balancing.
Low calorie diets (LCD), and very low calorie diets (VLCD), are effective weight loss programs for people wishing to lose large amounts of weight safely and quickly. With careful medical monitoring, patients can lose 2-7 pounds per week on low calorie diets.
In a typical 18 week program, weight loss between 40 and 100 pounds can be achieved.
Low calorie diets include full or partial meal replacement with medical weight loss formulas such as OPTIFAST, MEDIFAST, or PROTI. These products use precise portion control, stimuli narrowing and high protein, low carbohydrate formula to help you lose fat while conserving muscle mass and avoiding cravings and hunger.
Commonly referred to as “low-carb” diets, Glycemic Control relies on a concept called the “glycemic load,” or GL, which ranks carbohydrates by how dense they are in sugars relative to fiber. The lowest end of the index take longer to digest. Slow digestion wards off hunger pains and helps to stabilize insulin levels. Foods high on the glycemic load include bread, white potatoes, and pasta, while low-glycemic foods include leafy vegetables, some whole grains, some fruit, lentils, and soybeans.
Many of our programs involve reducing and monitoring your caloric intake. However, when we’re talking about “diet”, we’re not just talking about a short term (and frustrating!) plan to eat less. By examining the nutritional density and value of foods, you’ll learn not “how to diet” but how to make better choices, allowing your diet to work for you, not leave you starving and feeling deprived. Our nutritional experts will devise the best, most effective nutrition and fitness plan that incorporates your health concerns, your goals and your lifestyle, making it as simple as possible to integrate the dietary changes into your day.
We know that losing weight is so much more than just a physical problem, with issues like discipline, motivation, and even forgiveness playing roles in successful weight management. We offer personal counseling from our highly qualified experts in the fields of behavioral weight loss, exercise, relaxation techniques, stress management and lifestyle strategies to provide the wisdom, expertise, and support for you to discover, design, and live your best life.
This assessment, which includes standard fitness evaluation protocols such as strength and flexibility testing, VO2 max, body fat and weight measurement, is conducted to determine your fitness level. After the assessment, a program of exercise and activity will be recommended to facilitate the necessary creation of lean body mass and reduction of body fat.
Stem cells are tiny ancestral cells found in our body that can divide and change into various cell types. Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells and can act as your own personal repair system in your body by replenishing adult tissues. They are also the source of all the cell that die. There are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, and adult stem cells. For our purposes we do not utilize embryonic stem cells, we magnify on the usage of adult stem cells and bone marrow stem cells.body where it is most needed. Bone marrow stem cells can be used for similar functions.
