Weight Loss Programs
This is a 12-week program that focuses on behavioral changes. It requires weekly “check in” sessions (in person or remotely through our telehealth video platform). Patients work with a registered dietitian to implement a meal plan for weight loss (with or without meal placements).
Fit & Well, MD LCD: Partial Meal Replacement Program
This pathway combines the use of meal replacements with a calorie/carb-controlled meal. Most participants consume four to five meal replacements daily. The flexibility of this plan will allow you to eat with family and friends while losing weight.

Bariatric Surgery Support
Our Bariatric Surgery Support Program is for individuals who are preparing to undergo bariatric surgery, as well as those who are struggling post-operatively with their weight and need additional weight management care. This program includes services such as ongoing medical treatment with anti-obesity medications, nutrition counseling, accountability, and support as well as monitoring for nutritional deficiencies.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”
FitWell MD Thrive Maintenance Program
After our patients reach their goal weight and health, they transition to our Thrive Maintenance Program. The frequency of visits varies, depending on a patient’s particular medical conditions and individual accountability requirements. Patients often also require ongoing medication and treatment strategies to maintain weight loss. Patients also continue to have access to monthly accountability sessions (in person or remotely) and our Facebook accountability group.
