The Medical Weight Management Center is in its 21st year of providing The OPTIFAST program, a medical meal replacement food created by Nestle Health Science Corp. It is an effective intervention to help patients lose weight quickly and safely. For many patients, reducing excess body fat will improve pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high triglycerides, as well as orthopedic conditions. Obesity is a chronic disease and does have long term consequences that might not be apparent initially. Our patients are people who are genetically pre-disposed to obesity. We offer weight loss support and education as well as maintenance support. Breakfast Club members are invited to schedule a nutrition “tune up” consult with Karen Holtmeier by calling 952-835-2132 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
