At Mediplan Diet, we realize that a weight loss plan is not one-size-fits-all. That is why our weight loss program is created custom for YOU. Each visit, you will have a one-on-one conversation with a doctor or nurse practitioner. Here, you can discuss, in detail, your successes and your issues with your diet, exercise plan, your past medical history and current feelings regarding your health and fitness. Having this personalized approach will help you to reach your goal for a healthy life!
There are a few basic general instructions that go along with the Mediplan Diet program. These instructions are subject to modification based on your consultation with our weight loss professionals. Let’s have a look at our most common instructions.
Our Weight Loss Program General Instructions
Eat Breakfast by 8:00 AM
Start your morning off with a healthy breakfast. Aim for a fairly large but also balanced meal. Choose foods that are high in protein and try to consume about half of your daily calories in the morning when your metabolism is working its best. Don’t be afraid to end your breakfast with something sweet either like a banana, cantaloupe or Greek yogurt. Protein contributes to feeling full and eating sweet foods early will decrease your carb cravings throughout the day.
Take Your Medication On Time

You Must Eat
