The Low Calorie Diet (LCD) is a high-nutrition calorie-controlled plan the doctor will prescribe for you and monitor closely. The Modified Diet is the same plan, but adjusted to include a calorie-specific dinner that may include your favorite foods.
After an initial mini-examination by the physician, an eating plan will be prescribed for you based on your estimated BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). BMR and body fat percentage is estimated using our Valhala Scientific scale. The doctor will recommend a daily caloric intake between 800-1200 calories. Why wait? Schedule Your Appointment Now!
This diet plan is accomplished by eating regular foods, meal replacements or a combination of the two. Our meal replacements are delicious high protein shakes, bars, soups and crisps.

Do I have to exercise on the program?
An important component to any form of weight management program is physical activity. Most weight loss occurs with a decrease in caloric intake. Incorporating increased physical activity is most helpful in preventing weight regain. In addition, physical activity has numerous benefits that will improve your overall wellness. We encourage our patients to start slowly, and gradually increase the intensity of their exercise program.
Do I have to be extremely overweight to participate in the program?
NO. Our team of medical professionals works closely with everyone to best assess their individual needs. Whether you are 5 pounds or 100 pounds overweight, we can help!
What kind of protein shakes and protein bars do I have to eat?
We use the Center for Medical Weight Loss meal replacements.
How long do I have to be on the diet? Do I sign a contract?
The length of time you are on the LCD/Modified diet is up to you and the physician. Everyone loses weight at different rates. You can stay on the diet plan until you reach your goal weight! There are no contracts involved.
