Obesity is a chronic health condition that requires lifelong treatment and medical care. From physical limitations to self-consciousness, your excess weight can often keep you away from being the person you truly are. Overweight people not only struggle with their excessive weight, they are also at higher risk for developing serious health conditions, like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and arthritis.
That’s why, healthy weight is crucial to your health and well-being. At EPIC Primary Care, we provide a comprehensive medically-supervised Weight Management and Nutrition Counseling Program to help you effectively and conveniently lose weight and reverse various lifestyle-related chronic health conditions associated with weight gain.
Our highly-acclaimed weight loss program is scientifically designed to promote fast and effective weight loss and is managed by our multidisciplinary I-ACT team of doctors, dietician, physical therapist, and nurse practitioners, who are highly experienced and rigorously trained to provide you with the best possible nutritional counseling and exercise plan for effective weight loss.
What We Do
At EPIC, we go beyond the traditional route of portion control and calorie counting to aid healthy weight loss; instead; our nutritionists and exercise physiologists work in partnership with you to track your eating habits, daily routine, lifestyle choices, pre-existing health conditions, and exercise regimen to create a customized and holistic weight loss program that has been tailored to meet your individualized medical, emotional, and psychosocial needs.
Our certified nutritionist will guide and encourage you to make healthy lifestyle choices, and will help you create a customized diet plan that’s based on your nutritional needs, food preferences, and lifestyle habits. Our exercise physiologist will evaluate your fitness level to create a personalized workout program that you can seamlessly fit into your busy schedule.
During the program, our I-ACT team also conducts regular personal and group sessions to monitor and manage your progress and keep you inspired.
