Weight Loss Q & A

How Does This Weight-Loss Program Help Me Lose Weight?

The weight-loss program at Advance Biomedical Treatment Center is different from most other diet and weight-loss plans for a number of reasons. Dr. Comia customizes a plan for your specific needs that begins with a 10-day metabolic detoxification, followed by FirstLine Therapy® and a comprehensive therapeutic lifestyle-change program. These methods address fat loss while promoting lean body mass (muscle), so you lose unwanted fat and keep or even gain lean muscle mass.

Dr. Comia’s customized weight-loss program specifically addresses underlying causes of chronic health problems, including:

  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol and dyslipidemia
  • High blood pressure
  • Insulin resistance
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Premature aging
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Inflammation

Since it’s not a fad diet, but rather a therapeutic lifestyle change that also addresses underlying health conditions, you’re able to lose weight and improve your overall health.

What is FirstLine Therapy?

FirstLine Therapy is an FDA-approved medical food by Metagenics® that comes in the form of protein shakes and bars that are held to higher standards than dietary supplements.

The FirstLine Therapy approach that Dr. Comia uses, including the UltraMeal® Plus 360 protein powder, is proven to control many conditions that are associated with obesity while helping to increase muscle and decrease fat. This comprehensive weight-loss plan is proven to be more effective than diet and exercise alone.

What Kind of Diet Will I Be On?

While on the Advance Biomedical Treatment Center medical weight-loss program, you’ll incorporate UltraMeal Plus 360 protein powder into your meal plan. This medical food protein powder is scientifically proven to reverse metabolic syndrome — a condition that involves having high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high triglycerides — in just 12 weeks. You’ll also enjoy a low-glycemic, gluten-free, and dairy-free Mediterranean diet.

The protein shakes address your specific nutritional needs based on your medical history and existing health issues. For example, if you’re diabetic, Dr. Comia tailors the weight-loss program to ensure that you consume medical foods such as protein shakes and other foods that have a low-glycemic index. She monitors your initial 10-day detoxification program and weight-loss program with blood tests and a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to assess your body composition.
