Individualialised Programs Supervised by a Physician
First Visit: Biometabolic Profile and Resting Metabolic Rate
The first step in creating a customized weight loss plan is to have a full
understanding of your body and health. The knowledge we gain helps us
put you on the best possible track to achieve the health goals you're
looking for. During your first visit, we do a complete bio-metabolic analysis
using the state of the Art Technology, which gives us insight into your
metabolism so that we can customize your treatment, based on your metabolism.
We utilize the Segmental Body Mass Analyzer with the latest equipment
using Biospace InBody 520. This gives us the true insight into your Body
Composition. Older methods using BMI can give us the misleading information
as this does not tells us your Muscle Mass or the Body Water Composition.
This technology not only gives us not your true body composition of the
Fat, Muscle and Water but also tells us where is your lean body distribution
so we can individualize the Weight Loss Program based on your total body
composition and not just the BMI. We also measure your Resting Metabolic
Rate which analyses your daily Energy Requirements, so that we can customize
your Weight Loss Program
We may also run battery of lab tests, depending on your medical evaluation,
which includes your Blood Count, comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Thyroid
Profile and Lipid Panel. This further gives us the insight into your health
so that we can choose the Meal Plan which is safe and effective for you.
Electro Cardiogram or EKG
An Electro Cardiogram may be done depending on your medical evaluation,
to evaluate the health of your heart and to make sure that the therapy
prescribed by us does not affect your heart.
Comprehensive Medical Examination
Dr Suri will go through your medical history and discuss with you the key
components of the program. This involves the comprehensive Medical, Nutritional,
Behavior and Exercise Assessment and Counseling, to ensure a thorough
understanding of your current health, which helps us comprise a program
that's right for you.
Behavioral Counseling and Nutritional Supplementation is also key component
of our Integrative approach to your Health Care.
FDA Approved Appetite Suppressants
We also may use FDA approved appetite suppressants and pharmaceutical grade
vitamins and other nutritional supplements to achieve the optimal results
for you. Appetite suppressants are optional and will be used based on
the individual medical conditions, preferences and based on the health
profile of the individual. There have been some recently approved Appetite
Suppressants which have come into the market, thus giving the patients
Our Meal Plans are based both on Natural Grocery Store Foods as well as
the Meal Replacement Products or the combination of both. We also have
special diet plans based on your individual Preferences like Vegetarian,
Organic, Detox, Mediterranean, Gluten Free, Kosher, Breast Cancer Prevention,
Energy Booster, North Beach Diet to name only few. Please call us to know
about our other Meal Plans. All of these diets are scientifically based
and nutritionally tested to target losing fat in a healthy manner as opposed
to simply "losing weight."

again do the Segmental Body Analysis and continue nutritional and behavioral
consuling at each subsequent visit. A medical exam is also a part of the
follow up visits. The frequency of the subsequent visits is based on your
