Who is a Good Candidate for Medical Weight Loss?

The Path to Success™ may be right for you if:

  • You have unsuccessfully tried many “fad” diets
  • You aren’t sure where to start with weight loss and need a plan
  • Your doctor has asked you to lose weight before a surgical procedure like a knee replacement or hernia repair
  • You’ve tried everything to get healthy, but fall into the same patterns

If you answered yes to any of these questions, medical weight loss at REX Bariatric Specialists might be right for you.

The Path to Success Overview

The Path to Success™ is a medically-monitored 12-week program located in Raleigh, North Carolina and serves the entire Triangle. After completion of the program, you gain more confidence in your food choices, see improvements in body composition, and feel more energized. Our medically-supervised weight loss program will enable you to put an end to yo-yo dieting and weight cycling with the help of a supervising registered dietitian and physician.

Medical Weight Loss Steps

First, you will jump start your metabolism by following a ketogenic meal plan to achieve safe and rapid weight loss. For the first several weeks, you will follow a supplements only meal plan, which includes high quality meal replacement shakes, protein bars, and protein snacks made by Celebrate Vitamins. During this phase of the program, you will see rapid weight loss, starting the first week of treatment. You will be medically monitored weekly throughout this entire 12-week program to guarantee safe and effective weight loss.

As you progress through the program, customizable, grocery-based meals are reintroduced with the supervision of a registered dietitian. Grocery-based meals contain nutritious, whole food ingredients that are tailored to every client’s individual needs by your care team. These meals are structured to be easily incorporated into a healthy diet after you complete the program to maintain long term weight loss.

Each week you will attend education classes focused on three important areas needed for long term success:

  • Nutrition
  • Behavior
  • Physical activity

These lessons enable our clients to make positive changes to their diet, recognize self-sabotaging behaviors, and participate in an appropriate level of physical activity needed for lifelong weight loss and weight maintenance.

After Completion of the Path to Success™

After completion of our 12-week program, you’ll have the option to schedule individual nutrition counseling sessions. We strive to give you the confidence you need to stay on track beyond the 12-week program.
