What is the Medical Weight Treatment Program at McConnell?

If you're ready to start your weight loss journey, a strong team behind you can help speed and ease your trip. The Medical Weight Treatment Program at McConnell offers two options for weight loss – we'll help you decide which one is right for you.

Our team of physicians, dietitians, exercise physiologists and behavioral counselors will help you achieve success.

Here are the Medical Weight Treatment options

Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Group Program
Our VLCD group program is a medically supervised, rapid weight loss program using New Directions nutritional products as your sole source of nutrition. After several days, your body will enter a state of ketosis, which lessens hunger and gives a feeling of energy. You can expect to lose 3-5 pounds per week in this program. Regular physician visits and lab work allow for safe weight loss. While you lose weight, you will be receiving weekly education on diet, exercise and healthy eating behaviors to enable you to maintain your weight loss when you return to a healthy weight-maintenance diet.

Low Calorie Diet (LCD) Group Program
Our LCD group program uses two or three New Directions nutritional products plus one balanced meal daily. You can expect to lose 2-3 pounds per week in this program. Again, you will participate in weekly educational meetings and medical monitoring.
