Medi-Weightloss® Is Now In King of Prussia!

Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program

Extra pounds can sneak up on all of us. And we all know that losing weight is tough. Sometimes starting is the hardest, no matter if you’re looking to lose only five to 10 pounds, or if you’re embarking on the first five pounds in a 50-pound journey.

Losing that weight can help you reduce the risk of over 30 health conditions. It’s easy to get frustrated when you are only able to lose a few pounds when you hope to lose far more. Sometimes the best diets are the ones with the most guidance.

Given the significant health benefits of losing weight for those who have an overweight body mass index, we’ve started a Medi-Weightloss® clinic at the Merion Building in King of Prussia.

While it is a separate entity from Main Line Spine, part of Main Line Spine’s clinical team is also working at our new clinic that provides medically supervised weight loss.

Medi-Weightloss® was developed by physicians, registered dietitians, and health professionals in the area of weight loss to help you control your calorie and carbohydrate intake while eating the optimum amount of protein to preserve muscle mass. The Medi-Weightloss® Program is evidence-based to result in a successful lifestyle change. When administering the treatment, our Medi-Weightloss® healthcare team takes each patient’s unique health profile into account. This customized approach is key to its effectiveness.

Our program is based on weekly visits where we do body composition analysis, a complete medical exam (including blood panel and EKG), and even more. It is a doctor and physician assistant supervised weight loss program where we offer a balance of education, appetite management and exercise activity to lose weight. We teach our patients strategies to keep weight off using real food. This is not a quick fix – our program is a lifestyle change. This approach has proven itself successful for more than 15 years. And it is covered by many insurance plans.

For example, Kristen, an actual Medi-Weightloss® patient, lost 50 pounds. She says:

“It’s been about a year since I met my goal weight and I’ve not only kept it off, but my current weight is less than my goal weight! Weight loss was definitely a journey for me, but the journey is never over! Every day I have to make a conscious effort not only to keep the weight off but to stay healthy. I recently was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis so eating right is a priority. Luckily, I already have the tools and willpower to do this successfully, thanks to Medi-Weightloss.

I don’t even want to imagine what it would be like going through this when I was 60 pounds heavier. Thank you, Medi-Weightloss® for helping me reach my goal, transform my body, and develop a newfound confidence that helps me get through life’s struggles without looking to food for comfort.”
