What to Expect: Your First Consultation

Posted on 02/15/2017 at 12:46 PM by Iowa Weight Loss Specialists

 

Whether you’ve attended one of our free informational sessions visited our website, you’re on the right path to making a healthy lifestyle change. You’ve identified that you need support to be successful on your weight loss journey.

 

For every patient, regardless of which of our weight loss programs you want to embark on, we begin with a personal one-on-one consultation.

 

This consultation is for us to get to know you, understand your weight loss struggles, any family history of medical conditions and to get a baseline of where you’re at today and where you want to go.

 

Our non-surgical medical weight loss consultation will be with one of our nurse practitioners and with one of our dietitians. We’ll review the following items:

  • Evaluation of diet history and medical conditions
  • Identification of barriers to weight loss
  • Goal-setting
  • Education about a healthy lifestyle for long term success
  • Helpful handouts for healthy eating, meal planning, and snacks
