Program III: Conventional Weight Loss Diet
A moderate weight loss diet program appropriate for people with 25 pounds or less to lose or for patients who do not wish to use meal replacements. This plan features a low calorie diet composed of conventional foods. It emphasizes eating small frequent meals composed of a combination of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in order to help people stay comfortably full while gradually lose weight.
Depending upon the calorie level of the weight loss diet, the starting weight of the individual, and the activity level of the dieter, typical weight loss results are 1-2 pounds per week for women and 2-3 pounds per week for men.
“I lost weight every week and felt great doing it. I had lots of energy. The plan is simple; healthy food in the correct portions, exercise and the support of a caring staff and physician.” Kathryn M.
