Fat Loss Program Q&A

Why have I gained weight?

Putting on extra pounds happens gradually, typically due to a combination of factors, including:

  • Family history
  • Hormones
  • Lifestyle
  • Eating habits
  • Physical inactivity
  • Stress

Plus, your metabolism slows down with age, making it harder to lose weight and keep it off. 

Why don’t mainstream diets work for me?

Mainstream diets focus on losing weight, but the downside is sacrificing valuable muscle. Muscle helps you burn calories. Losing muscle from dieting may explain why your weight loss results don’t last. 

In contrast, the program at Excel Medicine emphasizes fat loss to help you achieve — and maintain — your weight loss goals without loss of muscle. The program offers specially designed, science-based meal replacement plans to help you shed fat for good.

What is the difference between a fat loss program and weight loss program?

Many diets emphasize rapid weight loss, which typically results in the loss of muscle. Unfortunately, losing muscle may lead to a drop in your metabolic rate — causing you to burn fewer calories and store more calories as fat. 

In comparison, fat loss plans at Excel Medicine incorporate nutritionally based meal plans to ensure you’re getting the ideal amount of calories and protein. 

How do partial meal replacement shakes help with fat loss?

Excel Medicine recommends your fat loss program includes shakes from Cornerstone Wellness, MD, which are exclusively available to doctors. 

The delicious shakes are nutritionally engineered to make you feel satisfied and to suppress your appetite due to their high protein content, triglycerides from coconut oil, and six different types of fiber. 

Excel Medicine recommends consuming the shakes along with regular meals to aid in fat loss. 

How do OPTIFAST meals help with a fat loss program?

OPTIFAST meals save you the trouble of meal planning and counting calories through a total meal replacement plan available under medical supervision at Excel Medicine. The meals provide a predictable number of calories for more consistent weight loss. 

A study in the journal Obesity showed that OPTIFAST patients who actively participated in the program lost approximately 30 pounds while they were medically monitored over 26 weeks.

OPTIFAST meals come ready to eat or just require mixing with water, making them easy to fit into your busy schedule.
