Weight Reduction Program

Weight Reduction Program

The core focus of the Patient’s Medical Practice is to treat the entire person. Preventative health care programs are offered to existing patients or new patients who want to learn how to make changes in their lifestyle and nutrition to support a robust, healthy life.

Our mission is to inspire and empower our clients to live extraordinary lives by nourishing themselves from the inside out. Our goal is to clear up the confusion around healthy diets and lifestyle and to promote disease prevention. We support our clients by helping them discover a personalized, natural way of eating that works for them and meets their health goals while providing them with the energy to enjoy a wonderful life. As a result the positive changes they make can be sustained and integrated into their personal lifestyle and address the needs of their unique body.

Whether you are seeking treatment for a complex medical condition, weight loss, or would like general information on improving overall health, you will leave your initial appointment with useful knowledge you can implement immediately into your life.

Patient’s Medical offers a variety of Nutrition Program options to meet your needs. Some clients choose to visit once, and then schedule individual follow up appointments as required, while others request a full program with pre-scheduled follow-up meetings. Some opt for phone consultations as their schedules do not accommodate regular office visits.

We encourage you to commit to a program up front as it not only insures ample time for you to obtain the support you need to develop new habits that enable you to achieve and maintain your results, but it also saves you money. Whatever your preference, we will tailor a healthy nutrition and lifestyle plan to meet your specific needs with full collaboration with your physicians and therapists when appropriate.

Areas of Expertise

Patient Medical’s Customized Weight Management Program

Achieving long-term weight loss has proven to be an insurmountable challenge for most people. Studies show that while some people are able to achieve short-term weight loss by combining restrictive calorie intake with exercise, a significant majority gain their weight back within two years or less. Most have not made any changes to their eating habits, lifestyle or how they think about food, so they revert back to old habits as soon as they “finish” their “diet”.

We believe that a diet is not something you go “on and off” but instead is a part of your lifestyle, including what not only what you eat and but also your behaviors and thoughts around food. This comprehensive approach is what distinguishes our program. It not only helps to clear up the confusion around overwhelming and conflicting nutritional information but also equips you with the support, tools and techniques you need to achieve permanent weight loss. We focus on eating healthfully and making lifestyle and mindset changes to reach and support ideal weight and health long term. Our coaching centers on empowering clients to improve their lives by making permanent, sustainable changes and creating balance through supportive nutrition and personal growth.

Once you meet with the Nutritionist you will map out your specific goals so your program can be customized to resolve your individual concerns unique to your mind and body. Your Nutrition Coach, will work with you to develop a complete, practical and effective Wellness Program that addresses your specific needs, challenges, mindset and lifestyle, finding the right plan for you. Not only will this approach get you results, but it will allow you to sustain them. These comprehensive programs are designed to have clients take charge of their health and resolve their health issues while acquiring the tools for a lifetime of balance and permanent weight loss.

Finally you can be free of continual weight fluctuations and the demoralization and frustrations that accompany them.

Patients Medical’s Program Centers on:

  • Assessment - Understand and define health concerns, the first key step to customizing your unique strategy and plan for success. This phase will include documenting your baseline weight, waist /hip ratio and goals. We also offer an optional Bioimpedance Analysis. This non invasive test is extensive and analyzes your specific body to reveal your body’s muscle and fat mass, hydration level, extracellular and intracellular water levels, caloric requirement, cellular health, function and membrane integrity. Patients also have the option to choose a complete medical assessment to compliment their program. This exam would include a physical, complete blood work, identification of metabolic problems, Glucose Tolerance Testing, Lipid Profile, electrocardiogram (EKG), and bone density to assess any weight related conditions and co-morbidities. Such information can serve to solidify the important role of weight management in disease prevention, lifelong health and serve as additional motivation.

  • Education - Learn what types of food works best to achieve your weight loss goals and why. In this phase the Nutritionist would also address how nutrition and/or exercise can address any co-morbidity, if identified and applicable.

  • Relevant lifestyle changes - Develop habits that will sustain long term results. With individual support you can make progressive reasonable steps to secure habits that will insure lasting results. Understanding and making these behavioral changes are a key element of permanent weight loss.

  • Thought processes - Learn how to change your thinking about food. Understand how to identify and address your sabotaging thoughts about nutrition and lifestyle. Your mind is one of your most powerful tools and is an integral part of reaching and maintaining your goals. If you do not change how you think about food you run the risk of lapsing back to old patterns. This key element is missing in most conventional plans.

  • Practical application - Understand how to consistently incorporate these foods into your life, no matter how busy or stressful it may be.

  • Maintenance -Work with your coach to define your acceptable weight range and create a follow up plan to insure your results are sustained.

How Patients Medical’s Weight Loss Program Differs

A. Our Extensive Staff of Medical Professionals

  • Since there is no magic pill for health and well-being, the road to total wellness requires a diverse, collaborative team of integrative health care professionals with a full spectrum of skills who are dedicated to addressing the needs of your whole being- mind, body and spirit. From physicians and medical staff trained at the country’s most prestigious medical centers and institutions, to our full spectrum of licensed and certified health care practitioners, our multidisciplinary team of specialists is at the forefront of integrative medicine and holistic health care. Our nutritionist will work closely with our physicians to insure any medical obstacles to your weight loss success are addressed in developing your program.
B. Our State of the Art Testing
  • Many patients have a difficult time losing weight due to a combination of thyroid, neurotransmitter, adrenal, nutritional and other hormonal issues. What makes our program unique is that our facility is equipped to provide detailed blood and urine testing. Testing can include a complete hormonal panel, metabolic profile, and glucose tolerance to identify root causes and help focus the plan of action to get you results that have been so difficult in the past.
  • Most weight loss programs do not offer such testing as they are not administered by a medical practice or managed by nutrition professional. As a result participants are unsuccessful in achieving their goals because of underlying health issues. If you have been on diets, Weight Watchers and other programs but they have not worked for you, please do not give up hope.
  • The good news is that once the testing is done and our physicians have addressed the underlying health issues, our nutritionist will work with you to develop your customized weight loss program which will encompass not only what food to eat to achieve a healthy weight, but what behaviors and thought processes will make your results lifelong. You owe yourself the gift of health and vitality!
C. Our Program Addresses Lifestyle Changes
  • In accordance with our philosophy of treating your total body and mind, we view weight loss as a key tool is insuring that you live a vibrant, active life sustained by good health, high energy, mental clarity, full function, and absence of disease well into old age. If that’s what you want, our Health care team can help you.

Patients Medical uses the patented FirstLine Therapy® (FLT) weight loss program because it works! FirstLine Therapy® (FLT) is a supervised Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) program that is managed by our nutritionist with the support of our full staff of medical doctors. The FirstLine Therapy® program not only helps you reach a healthy weight permanently, but also teaches you to evolve into a lifestyle that arms you with a first line treatment to prevent common, chronic health problems. FirstLine Therapy is about making choices every day that will enable you to lose weight, and achieve a long, full, and healthy life.

By controlling your weight you can not only prevent chronic disease in the future but also improve your health and the quality of life now.

Why we use the FirstLine Therapy® Program First

Leading health organizations now recommend lifestyle changes as the "first line of therapy" for the treatment and prevention of chronic disease and other serious health threats. Here are just a few of the health conditions that FirstLine Therapy can effectively address:

FirstLine Therapy Health Conditions
Areas of Concern Health Condition
Cardiovascular Issues Heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke
Blood Sugar Issues Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, hypoglycemia
Obesity Issues Cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes,metabolic syndrome
Gastrointestinal Issues Irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune disorders
Men's Health Issues Low testosterone, low sex drive, loss of vitality and muscle tone
Women's Health Issues Menopause, hormone imbalance, premenstrual syndrome
Mood and Cognition Issues Alzeimer's disease, depression, poor memory or lack of mental clarity
Bone & Joint Issues Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis
Stress Issues Fatigue, sleeplessness, poor overall health

Think about the life you want to live. You still have a choice and a chance to be the person you’ve always wanted to be.

Many of these common health concerns can be reversed or even treated by making some simple, but important lifestyle changes. Where do you start? Who will be there to help you stay on track?

How FirstLine Therapy Works

One of the reasons diets and exercise programs fail is they are one-dimensional—that is, they focus on weight loss one. FirstLine Therapy isn’t just about weight loss; it’s about achieving a lifetime of good health. Instead of counting calories, you’ll learn:

  • Simple steps to help you take control of your specific health situation
  • Easy ways to track your progress, tips for success, reminders, and other support that will help you achieve your goals and maintain your health improvement.

FirstLine Therapy will help you:

  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight, once and for all
  • Address the underlying cause of common health problems
  • Take control of your health by providing you with the necessary tools
  • Live your life in a way that improves your health
  • Feel good now, and maintain good health for years to come

Why FirstLine Therapy Works

FirstLine Therapy has helped thousands of people regain their health, lose weight and live fuller, more vibrant lives. FirstLine Therapy works because:

  • Its basic principles are in accordance with the most current scientific research
  • It addresses the underlying causes of disease, not just the symptoms
  • It utilizes simple, progressive steps that you can make part of your lifestyle for life!

More specifically there are four key reasons that make FirstLine Therapy® (FLT) different than conventional lifestyle programs:

  1. FLT is about more than just weight loss
    1. FLT can help you lose unhealthy fat while retaining healthy, lean muscle.
    2. FLT integrates body composition testing (fat & lean tissue ratios)-because being thin doesn't necessarily mean you're healthy.
    3. An imbalance in body composition (gaining too much fat or losing too much muscle) can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure, altered cholesterol levels, etc.
    4. Loss of muscle results in loss of ability to burn calories, which makes it much more difficult to maintain weight loss over time.
    5. FLT focuses on lifestyle factors that are the underlying cause of many health problems.

  2. The FLT eating plan is different
    1. Most diets focus on NOT eating-not eating fat, not eating carbs, or just plain not eating much of anything. With most diets, success is based primarily on will power.
    2. The FLT eating plan emphasizes the need to eat, and to eat frequently.
    3. The focus is on eating THE RIGHT KIND OF FOODS-the right kind of fat, the right kind of carbohydrates, and the right kind of protein-all in the right portion size.
    4. FLT incorporates a low-glycemic-index eating plan based on the latest scientific research that will help you maintain stable blood sugar and energy levels.
    5. According to recent studies, low-glycemic diets are more effective than low fat diets in treating obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.
    6. People report less hunger and more energy, making it much easier to stick with the program.

  3. FLT incorporates medical foods and dietary supplements.
    1. Using appropriate medical foods and dietary supplements as part of this program can improve the effectiveness of the program for you and help you achieve your health goals.
    2. Dietary supplements provide targeted nutritional support for specific functions, such as healthy blood cholesterol or blood sugar levels, joint function and mobility, or healthy hormone metabolism.

  4. FLT has been demonstrated to be effective in controlled clinical trials. Most other diets have not.
Patients Medical focuses on your thoughts and behaviors around eating and teaches you how to think about food.

Eating is not automatic - the beating of your heart is automatic. Before you eat something you always have a thought, even if you are not aware of it. If you do not recognize your thoughts or learn how to respond to them, they will lead you astray from your program. Our program will teach you how to talk back to your sabotaging thoughts so you will be prepared for challenges along the way. Most weight loss diets focus only on what you should eat or not eat. They do not include teaching you what you need to know for a lifetime of weight-loss success. Our program gives you those skills. It not only helps you identify nutritious, satisfying foods for an enjoyable diet, but it also teaches you how to stick to your program and stay motivated day after day, no matter what the situation.

It’s not just the calories; it’s the habits! Making psychological changes is a key step ignored by most programs; which focus only on food. Changing your mindset and habits allows you to feel satisfied with your food choices, your weight and most importantly, yourself. With our support, this time will be different; you will lose weight permanently. You will be taught to change your mind set about healthy eating and stop the cycle of losing and regaining; you will learn the techniques that will enable you to follow your nutritious eating plan in any situation. Once and for all you will gain control of your eating, weight and your life. Finally, past feelings of disappointment and demoralization will be replaced by confidence and self esteem! More specifically it teaches you how to address real life obstacles to consistent, healthy eating.

You will learn what to do when you are challenged by:

  • Stress
  • Time
  • Cravings
  • Hunger
  • Emotions
  • Boredom
  • Food Pushers
  • Fatigue

You will learn how to stay on track when you are:

  • Traveling
  • Dining out
  • Vacationing
  • Celebrating
  • Attending a special function
  • Feeling that dieting is just too difficult

You will Learn:

  1. How to be satisfied with realistic/moderate portions
  2. What to do if you are tempted to have an unplanned snack between meals
  3. How to consistently use good eating habits-eating slowly, while sitting , enjoying every bite
  4. How to plan in advance and monitor yourself as you go along
  5. How to stay motivated and give yourself credit
  6. How to make healthy eating a priority
  7. How to get back on track when you make a mistake
  8. How to reduce and deal with hunger and cravings
  9. How to include your favorite foods
  10. How to build your confidence in your ability to follow a healthy lifestyle and eating plan
  11. How to handle plateaus
  12. How to maintain your results

The program skills can be applied to other aspects of your life and help you:

  • Stop avoiding your “to-do” list. As you learn to better organize your life to accommodate your new healthy lifestyle, you will learn to better organize other aspects of your life.

  • Become more assertive. As you become more comfortable with taking better care of yourself and addressing your health needs you will be able to become more assertive in other areas of your life.

  • Free up time and energy. As you achieve success via your weight loss results from the program, you will feel more in control of your life and no longer obsess about food, your body, or feel guilty or embarrassed; you will have more time and energy. You will feel proud and optimistic about the future and yourself.

Equipped with a customized, medically based, detailed program addressing food choices, behaviors, mindset as well as the support of our nutritionist, you will have the tools you need for permanent success. We will teach you the skills you need for successful, permanent weight loss, crucial lifestyle changes, and how you think about food and healthy eating. Not only will we teach you theses skills, but also how to practice them every day no matter how stressed, tired, busy or unmotivated you are.




 Chief among them are fermented foods, which are the next frontier in prepared foods.  In fact, fermented foods might even become the new American cuisine.


Probiotics are pills, powders, or capsules that contain billions of live bacteria, which help replenish your microbiome.  Fermented foods are a type of natural probiotic, because they contain so many live bacteria along with many other crucial nutrients.

Every culture in the world has its own fermented foods, which is a strong indication of how crucial they are to our health.  The chart below offers a brief sampling of fermented foods around the world.

Country Foods
Caucasus koumiss, a fermented milk drink
China douchi, a fermented black bean sauce
China, Middle East kombucha, a fizzy, fermented tea
Russia kvass, a fizzy beer-like drink made from black or rye bread
Ethiopia/Eritrea injera, a spongy bread made from fermented teff flour
Ghana fufu, a fermented product made from cassava, yams, or plantains
Himalayas bhatti jaanr, fermented rice food-beverage
gundruk, a fermented leafy vegetable
kodo ko-jaanr, a fermented millet product
sinki, a fermented radish
India dhokla, a steamed food made from fermented rice and chickpeas
dhosa, a dish of fermented rice and lentils
Japan miso, fermented soybean paste, used in soups and sauces
natto, fermented soybean cake
tempeh, steamed and mashed fermented soybeans
Mexico pulque, fermented alcoholic beverage made from cactus juice
Nigeria garri, a fermented product made from cassava
Russia kvass, a fizzy fermented beer made from black bread or rye bread
South Pacific poi, fermented taro paste
Thailand pla ra, fermented fish sauce

You can find fermented foods in many forms: pastes, seasonings, condiments,

curries, stews, pickles, and even candy. They can be fried or boiled or sometimes candied, and they can be eaten in main dishes, side dishes, salads, or desserts.

Fermented drinks also take many forms.  They can be alcoholic, such as beer and wine, or nonalcoholic, such as certain teas, vinegar-based drinks, or buttermilk.

The universal consumption of fermented foods is the strongest possible demonstration of how much we humans need this type of food in our diets.  Sadly, the growing prevalence of Western fast foods and packaged foods is wiping out traditional food cultures, which I have come to believe is one of the primary causes of the worldwide obesity epidemic.

Fortunately, as health consciousness grows, interest in fermented foods has grown as well.  The following foods are healthy fermented foods that are readily available in the United States and can be easily incorporated into a Western diet:

• Sauerkraut—a version of fermented cabbage eaten throughout Eastern Europe, Russia, Austria, and Germany

• Kimchee—a Korean version of fermented cabbage, carrots, onions, and garlic

• Fermented vegetables—available ready-made in most stores and online

• Kefir—a fermented milk drink from the north Caucasus

• Yogurt—another type of fermented milk product eaten throughout central and west Asia, India, central Europe, and the Balkans

All of these foods are frequently found in the meal plans and recipes in The Microbiome Diet.  I highly recommend them, both for weight loss and for overall improvement of numerous symptoms, including depression, anxiety, brain fog, skin problems, hormonal issues, immune weaknesses, digestive problems, and fatigue.  A healthy microbiome can transform our endocrine, immune, digestive, and nervous systems—and by supporting the microbiome, fermented foods support these aspects of the body as well.


The name “sauerkraut” literally means sour cabbage.  The cabbage is pickled by a process known as lacto-fermentation, in which glucose and other sugars in the cabbage are converted into energy and lactic acid.  Various types of bacteria—including lactobacilli, leuconostoc, and pediococci—enable the fermentation.  These bacteria are also crucial in promoting balance within the microbiome.

A number of companies make organic sauerkraut.  One that I recommend to many patients is Bubbies (www.bubbies.com), which makes a number of high-quality fermented and picked products, including an excellent sauerkraut and some wonderful pickled green tomatoes.

Both the sauerkraut and the tomatoes are natural probiotics—sources of live bacteria.  The tomatoes are also a natural prebiotic—sources of the dietary fiber on which friendly bacteria feast.  Tomatoes are full of a prebiotic known as arabinogalactans, which are extremely nourishing to helpful bacteria and thereby promote microbial balance.

Tomatoes are also rich in lycopene, a prime antioxidant, and in vitamin C, another antioxidant.  They have plenty of vitamin A, which helps to heal the gut.  They also offer have terrific cardioprotective benefits through lowering cholesterol and triglycerides and reducine platelet stickiness.  They are also good for bone health.

For a more exotic sauerkraut, a company called Wildbrine (www.wildbrine.com) offers a red beet and sauerkraut salad, a curried cauliflower and sauerkraut salad, and a ginger sauerkraut salad, as well as a more traditional dilled sauerkraut.


Koreans find kimchee so delicious that they eat some with virtually every meal.  We Americans could do far worse than to imitate their example, since kimchee is one of the healthiest probiotic foods there is, with proven support for weight loss as well.

A 2011 study published in the journal Nutrition Research found that fermented kimchee had a significant impact on the weight and body fat of the overweight and obese patients who were being studied.  Not only did the patients shed both weight and fat, they also showed improvements in blood sugar, blood pressure, and the waist-hip ratio—an important biomarker of metabolic health.

Kimchee has also been shown to lower cholesterol, prevent constipation, and combat colon cancer.  In addition, it can help to reduce stress, relieve depression, combat osteoarthritis, reduce atherosclerosis, and fighting liver disease.

Sunja’s (www.sunjaskimchi.com) offers a wonderful line of fermented vegetables prepared kimchi-style.  In addition to the traditional kimchi-style cabbage, you can find fermented kale, radish, cucumber, and beets. There is also a “white kimchi” that offers the health benefits of fermentation without the spiciness of traditional kimchi.

Like pickled and fermented tomatoes, fermented radishes offer a double benefit:  the fermentation offers a natural probiotics; the radishes are a natural prebiotic.  Radishes are also high in magnesium and manganese (crucial for the production of digestive enzymes), vitamin C (a terrific antioxidant and immune system support), calcium (for bone health), folate, and vitamin B6 (good for coping with stress and supporting brain function).  In addition, radishes offer some ability to combat inflammation, an immune system response that promotes weight gain.

Wildbrine also offers two variations on traditional kimchi—a Japanese-style miso and horseradish kimchi and a Thai-flavored kimchi prepared with lemongrass, mint, red curry, and pineapple—as well as a traditional Korean version.


As we have seen, fermented vegetables are natural probiotics, and many are also natural prebiotics.  In addition to the fermented vegetables offered by Sunja’s, you can find excellent choices from Bao Fermented Food and Drink, which offers a fermented cabbage that it markets as “Raw Slaw,” as well as a fermented hot sauce and—one of my favorites—a fermented ketchup.  Unlike most traditional ketchups, which are loaded with sugar and other problematic ingredients, Bao’s raw, sour, and fermented ketchup offers plenty of tangy flavor but no added sugar, gluten, or preservatives.

Bao also makes kombucha, a fermented tea and a refreshing natural probiotic drink.  Bao’s kombucha comes in seven flavors:  original, berry, ginger, grape, mango, spice, and super green.


Kefir—a fermented milk drink that resembles a liquid yogurt—is yet another natural probiotic.  In addition to promoting microbial balance, it offers incredible support for your immune system and has traditionally been used to treat tuberculosis and cancer.

Sadly, many types of commercially available kefir are sold with fruit and other flavorings mixed in.  This destroys the live bacteria and also adds many grams of sugar to the product, making it counterproductive as a weight-loss food and problematic for health generally.  Kefir needs to be plain and unflavored to retain its full health benefits, although serving it with fresh fruit is fine.

Goat’s milk kefir has also become commercially available.  This is fortunate, because many people are sensitive to cow’s milk but can tolerate from sheep’s and goat’s- milk products.  Goat’s milk kefir—if unflavored and packaged without fruit—allows many more people to benefit from kefir without risking the inflammatory challenges that might be produced by the cow’s milk.


Like kefir, yogurt has numerous health benefits—but only when it is packaged plain, unflavored, and without fruit, although serving it with fresh fruit is fine.  The health benefits of yogurt are numerous, as are its weight-loss benefits.  In June 2011, the New England Journal of Medicine reported on research linking yogurt consumption with improved weight.

The article reported on “Intriguing evidence [which] suggests that changes in colonic bacteria might influence weight gain.” A year earlier the British Journal of Nutrition found that the kinds of bacteria found in yogurt produced improvements in insulin sensitivity and inflammation.
