Weight Loss Medication
We use FDA-approved weight loss medications as a tool to help decrease hunger and cravings while allowing time to focus developing healthy lifestyle habits. In conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet, increased physical activity and nutritional counseling, medication helps patients reach and maintain their weight loss goals.
Nutrition counseling focuses on creating a base of positive behaviors and choices and is the foundation of our program. All patients of New Jersey Bariatric Center® receive nutritional counseling from our staff of registered dietitians. Our team evaluates your medical history, nutritional status, vitals and metabolic profile and then works with you to develop a whole-foods-based, nutrient-dense meal plan that won’t leave you feeling deprived.
