Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) 

It is an individualized diet therapy protocol that includes diet assessment, counseling and education provided by a licensed registered dietician/nutritionist.

Some insurance companies may cover this service.  We will verify your coverage with your plan. Medicare will cover this service.


Ideal Protein (IP)  

Coaches provide one on one weekly lifestyle education and guidance throughout a four-phase weight loss protocol. Carbohydrates and fats are limited to encourage timely fat loss.  High quality protein based meal supplements protect muscle health while allowing the body to burn off excess fat.  

Phase 1-2 are weight loss components of the protocol. Phase 3-4 are weight stabilization and management components.  

Adhering to a weight maintenance-training program in phase four, which consists of structured appointments with your weight loss coach, is a key component to the dieter’s overall success.   “We are your coaches for life!”


Intensive Behavioral Therapy (IBT)

It involves high intensity weight loss counseling with behavioral intervention in obese adults.  It requires patients to achieve a moderate sustained weight loss (six pounds in six months) to continue to receive this Medicare benefit. 


Nutrition Counseling:

Offers diet review, supplement discussion, wellness and lifestyle promotion.  This service is not covered by most insurances but will be happy to verify coverage for you.



Total Body Scan:

This study analyses body composition as well as lean mass (muscle mass) with a high degree of accuracy.  It will provide the patient with understanding of body composition changes when on a weight reduction program.
