Partial Meal Replacement Program
Losing weight is not a one-size-fits-all journey. At the Johns Hopkins Digestive Weight Loss Center, we offer multiple tools to fit your lifestyle and weight loss needs.
Partial Meal Replacement Program: What to Expect
Our Partial Meal Replacement Program is ideal for people who want a simplified medical weight loss plan. The streamlined but supportive program has three main components:
- A personalized and convenient diet plan with meal replacement shakes
- Physician-led group meetings
- Lifelong weight management training
Medical Weight Loss at Johns Hopkins
Having a physician in your corner who understands the challenges of weight loss is important. A doctor with in-depth knowledge of weight management is best equipped to help you reach optimal health. If you have existing health conditions, this can be especially critical.
Our evidence-based program helps you safely lose weight under a doctor’s care. Our physicians have received advanced training and are board certified in obesity medicine. During the program, they are able to prescribe medications if needed and give medical advice and assistance.
One of our physicians will assess your current health and medical history in an initial weight management evaluation. Based on the information gathered, your doctor can provide personalized guidance throughout the program. Your vitals are also checked and monitored twice a month at doctor-led group meetings.
Our Diet Meal Plan
Sound nutrition counseling is key to losing weight and keeping it off. But planning, shopping and preparing meals for a recommended diet plan often seems like too much work.
Our program takes the guesswork out of what to eat with convenient weight loss shakes. They replace some of your day’s meals and snacks, and are easy to take on the go.
Our Weight Loss Support Groups
There’s no doubt that doing a weight loss program on your own can be difficult. Research indicates that those who get social support while trying to lose weight have more success. That’s why our obesity medicine doctors hold group meetings twice a month.
In our program’s meetings, the doctor and participants discuss how to make crucial lifestyle changes. Topics include how to develop healthy approaches for situations that can sabotage a weight loss program, such as:
- Dealing with stress
- Handling social situations
- Jump-starting your activity
- Staying motivated
Long-Term Weight Management
Our Partial Meal Replacement Program lasts six months, but managing your weight is a lifelong journey. We are committed to helping you maintain your weight loss results.
Our program teaches you how to manage your weight for life through:
- Doctor-led group discussions about weight loss challenges and strategies
- Continued checkups with your obesity medicine doctor after the program has ended (optional)
Our team of weight loss specialists can provide you with the information and training you need to reach your goals and enjoy a lifetime of healthy weight.
