Understand Your Body. And Your Weight Loss.
You are unique. And so are the ways in which you gain weight, lose weight, and handle stress and temptations. That’s why Dr. Christy dedicates so much time to understanding your body and your life, then helping you do the same.
Your First Visit
This is all about getting to know you, and visa versa. Plan on spending around two to two and a half hours with us. Trust us, it will be time well spent. Your first visit includes:
- Presentation about health, nutrition
- The Body Bar MD Lifestyle Medicine plan
- Physical and medical history
- Vital signs
- Body measurements
- Body Composition Analysis
Why we do what we do.
Before you start our diet plan, we need to make sure your heart is healthy. An EKG is a great way for us to determine that. To make your life more convenient, we offer affordable EKGs at our office.
Labs are a critical part of starting this diet. It’s our way of understanding what’s going on inside your body, making sure your organs are healthy and your essential vitamin and insulin levels are correct. It also helps us determine whether you are a viable candidate for weight loss medications.
We take three body measurements—the neck, waist and hips. This helps us track how many inches you’ve lost.
Body Composition Analysis
Using an Inbody machine, we are able to perform a complete body composition analysis that tells us your basal metabolic rate, percent of body fat, hydration status, muscle mass and a lot of other details. It’s more valuable and important than a mere number on a scale.
If you’re agreeable, we take them from front and side angles. Trust us, you’re going to revel in your before and after!
