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:
- 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.
I LOVE Rex! I’ve been a patient since 2015 and I highly recommend Rex. I feel educated, understood and taken care of. Most importantly to me – I’ve never felt like I was being treated a certain way because of my size at Rex. Do yourself a favor and come to Rex! Ask for Dr. Bermudez 🙂
When Will You See Results?
You will see weight loss results continuously from week 1 of your Path to Success Program. Most patients will achieve their weight loss goals after 12 weeks. However, some patients may require a personalized weight loss program due to their health situation.
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.
The cost of The Path to Success Program will depend on the initial condition of the patient and their weight loss goals. Any additional personalized weight loss programs will be added to the overall price of the program.
