W8MD's tele-weight loss
W8MD Physicians understand that weight loss is a complex process that needs careful monitoring by an obesity medicine physician well versed with the concepts in obesity medicine.
Nutrition is key[edit | edit source]
In order to help you lose weight, the W8MD program aims to supply the body with nutrition at a regular interval with limited calories but adequate protein and other nutrition the body needs.
Meal replacements (optional)[edit | edit source]
The simplest way to provide the balanced nutrition at very limited calories is to use prepackaged meal replacement diet plans such as VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) or LCD (Low Calorie Diet) Plans. For some people, the first few days can be difficult. But once the fat burning starts, it will become much easier. The longer you strictly adhere to the diet, the more momentum you will have. The easiest way to change your behavior is to change your environment.
Using W8MD bars, shakes and food is a great way to get you started. Once you reach 80% of your desired weight loss, we will begin to start transitioning you and have you start eating more of your own food so you can become a STAR. (Steps to avoid regain) However, you can choose to prepare your own meals with instructions from W8MD, should you feel you cannot afford or do not wish to use the Meal Replacement Plans.
Understanding glycemic index[edit | edit source]
Glycemic Index of Foods: If you were to make your own meals, the W8MD program requires you to understand the glycemic index of foods. The higher the glycemic index, the higher the demands on the body to produce insulin. Consuming high glycemic index foods can increase the risk of developing insulin resistance leading to a condition called metabolic syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome, affecting one in three Americans, increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other conditions including increased risk of certain cancers.
