With LeanMD, a medically supported weight loss program, you can enjoy real food, real support, and real success. Behr Laser & Skin Care Center has offered body contouring treatments, such as CoolSculpting® and Liposuction, for years. They are highly effective treatments but are not intended for weight loss. Dr. Behr is proud to now offer LeanMD to help patients reach their goal weight, and then we can contour any stubborn areas that persist. This will lead to the most optimal results, which is always Dr. Behr’s goal.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What is LeanMD?
LeanMD is a medically supported rapid weight loss program that is designed to help patients lose weight in a safe and effective way. We know that with weight loss, or any body contouring treatment, there is not a “one size fits all” answer. With LeanMD, we can tailor each patient’s program to fit their individual needs with nutrition, supplements, and appetite suppressants if desired. This program utilizes simple, easy-to-follow nutrition plans that focus on high protein and low carbohydrate intake, medical supervision and one-on-one support to help you achieve results you’ll be proud of. It also supports vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. No matter how much weight you want to lose, our LeanMD coaches can help you achieve weight-loss that is healthy and sustainable.
How Does LeanMD Work?
LeanMD is a physician-led, 3-Phase process which includes the loss phase, transition phase, and sustain phase. These 3 steps allow patients to lose substantial weight and offer a long-term approach to maintaining their ideal weight over time. The program focuses on portion control, allowing 5 portioned meals a day. The LeanMD app allows patients to keep track of daily food portions, track weight, and record supplement and water intake. Patients also meet with their LeanMD coach weekly during phases 1 and 2 for weigh-ins and a weekly B-12 shot.
How Long Does the Program Last?
The first phase of LeanMD is the weight loss stage, and that lasts 2-12 months, depending on the patient’s goal weight and weight loss progress. The second phase, called the transition stage, can last between 3-5 weeks. During this phase, we stabilize the new weight, taper patients off any appetite suppressant medication, adjust macronutrient ratios, increase calorie intake and physical activity, and help patients adapt to a new sustainable lifestyle. Phase 3, the sustain stage, lasts 12 months during which the Sustain Membership Program will provide ongoing support and guidance to ensure long-term success.
LeanMD’s 3-step program isn’t just a diet, it is a lifestyle change. LeanMD is 4 times more effective than other programs and diets, offering 33% more value dollar per pound than WeightWatchers. Proven studies have revealed that the average pounds lost in 6 months on LeanMD is 39.7 pounds, compared to WeightWatchers’ average of 10.3 pounds. LeanMD is so successful because it not only assists patients in weight loss, but it also guides them on how to maintain their goal weight long-term.
