Our Controlled Calorie Table Food diet is an effective weight loss option for you if you prefer to eat table food instead of using Optifast. In this program we give you options for portion-controlled entrees and side dishes (bought at the grocery store) based on calorie and nutritional content. These food plans are very easy to follow and are very flexible. The food plans are high in protein and low in carbohydrates and are therefore referred to as Protein Sparing which means that they facilitate fat loss and preserve lean body mass. We also also have options for you if you are a vegetarian.
How does the Controlled Calorie Table Food Program Work?
The program is structured according to your weight loss and health goals. We provide you with options for portion-controlled entrees and side dishes based on calorie and nutritional content. You can also use Optifast products as food replacement or as a convenient, nutritious snack to help with cravings and hunger if needed.
If appropriate, we will discuss and prescribe appetite suppressant medications to help with hunger.
The emphasis of this program is to establish healthy, lifelong eating and activity patterns. This is not simply a diet. Each week we hold counseling sessions at the clinic to provide you with the support, information, and resources to help you be successful.
