Steps for Success

UnaSource Comprehensive Weight Loss Center Program

Research supports that a dietary approach with meal replacements is superior to an all food approach for both short and long term weight loss as well as improvement of obesity co-morbidities. If the nutrition program instructions are followed consistently, the average weight loss is between 12-20 lbs. per month. Men typically average 4.5 lb weight loss per week, while women average 3.5 lb weight loss per week. A multidisciplinary approach including nutrition, physical fitness, and behavior modification will enhance success.
