General FAQ’s

What happens after I lose the weight?

You’re not alone on this journey. After you reach your goal weight on the MetTrimMD plan we will maintain open communication—and an open door policy—as you enter the weight maintenance phase. We will teach you how to keep the weight off. It’s easier than you may think. The beauty of MetTrimMD is that we’re local; you can visit us if you start to struggle, and together we can quickly get you back on track. Your relationship with your MetTrimMD physician and medical team puts you in control of your weight from start to finish.

What is behavioral modification (and do I need to do it)?

Behavior modification at its core is the process by which we learn what behaviors contribute to our struggle with weight and how we can change those behaviors. We pride ourselves in providing you with realistic and clear solutions to shift you away from behaviors that prevent you from maintaining a healthy weight. Those behaviors may include: your relationship with food, lifestyle habits, environmental habits, and emotional barriers. In essence, behavioral counseling is the learning process by which we teach you to maintain a healthy weight.

Who are MetTrimMD physicians?

MetTrimMD physicians are medical doctors (MDs/DOs) in your community who are dedicated to improving patients’ health through weight loss. They follow our safe, effective protocol and follow the highest standard of medical care and attention. These doctors are passionate about helping you lose the weight, providing expert level support whenever you need it, and teaching you how to keep the weight off long-­term.

Does the MetTrimMD program include weight loss surgery?

No. Our proprietary program is a non­surgical approach to weight loss and weight maintenance.  However, we work with many bariatric surgery patients before and/or after bariatric surgery.

Why is MetTrimMD only available through a doctor’s office?

MetTrimMD provides a proprietary non­surgical “medical treatment” that must be supervised by a physician or qualified medical professional. In addition, there are medical conditions that contribute to weight struggles. Only a physician and trained medical experts are qualified to effectively treat those medical conditions.

What if I already have a primary care physician? Can I start MetTrimMD?

Yes, you can. Moreover, your MetTrimMD physician will be happy to work with your primary care physician.

Do I need to take weight loss medication?

Most people do not need to take weight loss medication, but some patients benefit from FDA approved appetite suppressants. You and your doctor can discuss whether or not they are useful in your particular case.

Can I start MetTrimMD if I’m a diabetic?

Yes. If you have type 2 diabetes; MetTrimMD is a perfect plan for you.

Our Program FAQ’s

What does the program cost?

The program is affordable and designed to fit within your weekly budget. The price of the program includes:

  • Weight loss physician visits
  • Medical staff visits
  • One-­on-­one support
  • Comprehensive medical evaluation

When you meet with the medical team at your free consultation, your support team will calculate the cost of your custom program. There is no pressure. You decide if you want to move forward and lose weight. Also, if you’re wondering if MetTrimMD covered by my health insurance – The quick answer is that it depends. In some cases, yes. For example, many times you can use your HSA account (health savings account) to pay for MetTrimMD. You can discuss this further at your free consultation.

What does “the program” look like?

Ultimately every plan is different because every patient is different. In general, however, you can expect to check in with your MetTrimMD weight loss specialist once a week (until the doctor says otherwise) for a progress check­up.

This weekly progress check­up (approx. 15 minutes) may include:

  • Check biometrics like percent body fat, water content, lean muscle mass, change in waist circumference, changes in weight/BMI, blood pressure and pulse.
  • Periodic blood work checks.
  • Review your compliance with supplements, water, and salt intake to ensure your continued wellbeing and success.
  • Review compliance with appropriate exercise and help you find ongoing creative ways to incorporate it into your day.
  • Review of systems including; energy levels, cravings, mood, etc.
  • Discussion of any adjustments that need to be made to ensure that you continue to move towards your healthy­weight rapidly and safely.
  • Receive your next week’s meal plan—meals that truly taste good and are carefully calibrated to curb hunger, burn fat, and help you maintain lean muscle.

Where do I begin? What steps do I take to succeed?

First, schedule your free consultation (approx. 15­-30 minutes) with your MetTrimMD weight loss physician and medical team today. If you decide to move forward, all you need to do is follow your doctor’s plan—the plan tailored to your unique needs. This eliminates any guesswork and stress and increases confidence and motivation. At the same time, you will move forward with the peace of mind that comes from following a safe, doctor ­supervised program.

Next, move onto to your first visit or schedule the next available time.

Your first visit (approx. 30­-45 minutes) is an extension of your free consultation. After your free consultation, your weight loss physician and medical team will have a solid idea of what will work for you. During your first appointment, your MetTrimMD weight loss physician will craft a personalized program just for you.

During your first visit your medical team will conduct a more extensive examination and discuss your goals, your lifestyle, and the current status of your health. To create a program that will enable your body to release body fat rapidly while maintaining lean muscle mass, your doctor will need to get a baseline measurement of your current health. For example, if you need to stabilize your blood pressure, cholesterol, and/or sugar levels and would like to lower associated medications, your doctor will design a program to achieve these goals. First time examinations may include:

  • EKG
  • Blood work
  • A ‘system review’ that will cover allergies, hunger and craving issues, nausea or vomiting issues, constipation, diarrhea, leg cramps, lightheadedness, fainting, headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety, shortness of breath, chest pain, and more.
  • A deeper discussion designed to understand why you struggle with weight loss and/or weight maintenance

Once this process is complete your medical team will have the information needed to customize a plan for you that’s safe and effective. Your medical support team will also explain what you can expect throughout the program.

What are my chances of success?

The best way to answer this question is to address the reasons why MetTrimMD patients succeed.

Safety:The hands-­on supervision of a weight loss physician and team of medical experts guarantees that your safe, personalized weight loss program is right for you. Safety is a top concern for those considering the benefits of a weight loss program. Our safety protocols are directly related to our high success and retention rate.

Real support means that your MetTrimMD medical team will be there to take immediate action and adjust your program precisely when and where you need it, ensuring that you move forward and reach your goal. In addition, your expert support team will be there to make sure you have the tools and education you need to keep the weight off long-­term. No more weight loss rollercoasters.

Is MetTrimMD best for Women or Men?

The answer is both, but there’s more to this answer.

Traditionally, weight loss plans attract mostly women ages 35-­55. With MetTrimMD; Men and women – ages 17 to over 80 years of age – have success.

Men tell us they’re more comfortable discussing weight (health) issue with a doctor in a private office setting rather than online or in a group.

Women tell us the medical supervision takes the stress out of choosing a plan and guessing whether or not the program will work for them.

Both male and female teens, people in their 20’s (and even 30’s) echo these sentiments. Seniors tell us the same, but the safety that comes from working with weight loss experts plays a bigger role in their decision making process.
