We Can Help You Lose That Last 15 Pounds in Salt Lake City & Sandy, Utah

Need to lose just 15 pounds?

Maybe you’ve lost a whole bunch and just can’t get the last 15 pounds off, or you’ve never had a weight problem, but need to lose 15 pounds fast for a cruise or a wedding. At Advanced Medical Weight Loss, we have the answer for you. Through our Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD), most of our healthy patients can lose that last 15 pounds in just 4 weeks.

So how does it work? Our patients in Salt Lake City and Sandy are limited to a diet of 800 calories a day or less that includes nutritional supplements that replace your regular groceries. By limiting calories and carbohydrates, the body can then burn fat for energy while muscle is still maintained. Adhering to the diet can result in weight loss of up to 2-3 pounds per week. (Losing that last 15 pounds with the VLCD diet is not recommended for the elderly, children under 16, pregnant or nursing women, and people with certain medical conditions.)

With the use of a calorie restricted diet aided by appetite-suppressing-medications when appropriate, many of our healthy patients can lose 15 pounds over a 6-week period. Check out our VLCD Success Stories page to read how we have helped clients in Salt Lake City and Sandy with losing that last 15 pounds. Call now to schedule a consultation with one of our weight loss providers to find the right program for you.

When making the decision whether or not to prescribe weight loss medications to overweight individuals, the providers in this office carefully follow the guidelines of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and the laws of the state of Utah that govern the use of these medications.
