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 supplements that are held to higher standards than usual dietary supplements.

The FirstLine Therapy approach that Dr. Comia uses different kinds of protein shakes specifically formulated to improve your medical conditions while losing fat. Every visit starts with a free body composition analysis that guides the treatment plan and monitors progress.

 

This comprehensive weight-loss plan is proven to be more effective than diet and exercise alone.

What is Unique about this Weight Loss Program?

Dr. Comia employs the most holistic approach to address the many causes of weight loss failures -- from addiction to anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, to lack of planning skills, cooking skills, and even healthy recipes.  With the armament of treatment strategies at her disposal, she can recommend a variety of remedies to control or mitigate problems that surround weight loss failure. Without addressing these issues, weight reduction efforts become futile and redundant year after year.

What Kind of Diet Will I Be On?

While on the Advance Biomedical Treatment Center medical weight-loss program, Dr. Comia will guide and support you with healthy recipes following the Paleo diet which is a low-carbohydrate, high-protein, gluten-free, and dairy-free Mediterranean diet.

Various protein shakes will be recommended to suit 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 body impedance analysis (BIA) to assess your body composition.
