Low-Calorie Diet

While you try and lose weight, it’s essential to take in fewer calories than you burn during exercise and throughout the day. At Advanced Medical Weight Loss, our low-calorie diet limits patients to 800 calories a day to promote weight loss. Many of our patients can lose 2-3 pounds a week by doing this.
