Learn how to control fat.

Let RX Weight Loss Sarasota coach you back to thin!

Rx Weight Loss’s plan can take inches off your waist. But more important, it’s designed to make eating simple – so there is less struggle and willpower to keep trimming down. The secret? Dieting smarter not harder, using our knowledge to program your body to work for you so you’re not fighting yourself. Learn the exact foods to eat and how to control your appetite all day long.

Rx Weight Loss Sarasota wants you to eat! The key to losing weight and keeping weight off is to eat the correct portions of food every few hours. Our safe and effective prescribed diet, coupled with medication, helps control your hunger. This combined approach regulates powerful hormones that help you lose weight. We also encourage a maintenance program to help keep you on track with your new lifestyle once you have achieved your weight loss goal. Our weight loss diet plan is tailored to your body and your metabolism.

Each level of our program is tailored to the individual patient. The Rx Weight Loss Sarasota program is not a one-size-fits-all approach, but a well thought out plan for each patient. We ask that you bring copies of your recent blood profile to your first visit, if available. If you do not have these, an order for them can be purchased through our office and administered by Quest Labs.

The Rx Weight Loss Sarasota program includes an exam with Robert Ford, M.D., and an EKG. We calculate your body mass index and body fat percentages, as well as your water percentages and your distribution of weight, which we will use for future comparison. Your exercise habits are also reviewed. We prescribe metabolic supplements and nutrients that help your body burn fat and, if necessary, we prescribe only weight loss medications that have a long history of success and safety.
