Svelte Medical Weight Management announces today details behind the Svelte Advantage, a program unlike any other commercial or medical weight loss program in Florida. The Svelte Advantage difference is the transformation of a sugar-burning metabolism to a fat burning one based on insulin stability.
"Obesity continues to plague Americans despite our understanding of how we gain weight,” says Richard Bragg, M.D., CEO, Svelte Medical Weight Management. “At Svelte, our commitment is that our patients not only meet their goal weight, but that they are empowered to keep it off for life through a lifestyle transformation.”
Medical Assistants at the three Central Florida Svelte centers are titled “Svelte coaches.” They provide the support, training, and intervention for patients along their lifestyle transformation. The three-phase program is based on weekly office visits to support patients all the way to their Svelte goal and beyond.
Phase one, known as the Rapid weight loss phase, begins with a customized plan of action including a trip to the grocery store of their choice and their own personal "Svelte Survival Guide" packed with detailed instructions. In phase two, Transition, patients are weaned off any appetite suppressants they may be prescribed & are trained how to eat in “the zone.” Phase three, Svelte Support, is a maintenance program where patients can come in weekly or monthly for their Svelte support shot and to check weight and body fat. By the end of the three phases, patients are well versed in maintaining the zone lifestyle and have real motivation to maintain their new Svelte shape.
