The program is made of three important parts:
Before starting the Weight Loss Program, it will be necessary to know of the patients’ clinical and nutritional state, for which an evaluation will be made by one of our specialists and the following laboratories analysis will be taken:
Cholesterol, total and fractioned
Our program includes nutritional advice by a medical nutritionist, specialist in the treatment of patients with overweight or obesity problems. Throughout the medical consultations, the expert will supervise, week after week, the patient’s progress and will incorporate to his or her diet whatever is necessary to lose weight in a healthy way.
The nutritional support, designed individually for each patient, aims to reduce the energy in food to produce a negative energetic balance, which is fundamental for the treatment of overweight.
Physical Activity Support
The Physical Activity Support consists in a personalized exercising program, designed according to the individual characteristics of each patient, taking into account medical, nutritional, and social aspects.
The program includes advice from a Personal Trainer who will elaborate a training routine which includes cardiovascular exercise, muscular stimulation, stretching and relaxation; all of which will take place in the patient’s home. To make the training easier, the Personal Trainer will carry out the routine along with the patient, helping and accompanying him or her in their effort to reach the desired weight.
Finally, the program aims to change the patient’s lifestyle, through learning the main principles to manage his or her weight.
