Contour Dermatology employees and patients are losing weight left and right and learning how to keep it off for good. Paige Wheeler, a medical assistant with the practice, was one of the first to join the program. She lost 15 pounds in the first two weeks and a total of 20 pounds in the first month.* She has 23 more pounds to go to reach her goal of 130.

“The food journal is one of the most helpful aspects of the program,” said Paige. “You’re accountable for everything you do. You write your calories down. Even if you cheated, you write it down.”

Another important part has been the support from the staff. “Even though I work here, the support is amazing,” she said. “Patients receive follow up calls and texts and it really helps to know that people are behind you and rooting for you.”

The crux of the Medi-Weightloss® program is a high protein, low calorie diet of food purchased in the grocery store, not pre-packaged foods. During the first few weeks, Paige was craving a cheeseburger; no problem. She grilled a 98% lean beef patty, added some green onions and Laughing Cow low-cal cheese, a tomato slice and wrapped it in lettuce!

If you’ve tried diets without success and want the support of a proven, medically-supervised program to guide you to reach your weight loss goals, call (760) 423-4090 to schedule your initial consultation. What do you have to lose?
