How much weight will I lose, and how fast?
On average, we see a loss of 1-2 pounds per week after being in the program for 1 month. Individual results vary based on several personal factors.
How much does it cost to start the DietMD® program?
There are no startup costs or membership fees to join the DietMD® weight loss program. The cost of the program is the cost of a regular doctor’s office visit. These visits are usually covered under your insurance. If you do not have insurance, we offer a self-pay option.
Does the DietMD® program have virtual options like Televisits?
Unfortunately, no. You will need to come into our office for your visits. We have found that in-person office visits garner the best results.
Do I have to work out on the program?
Working out and exercising is not required but is always recommended to maintain good health and aid in weight loss.
Do I have to get rid of my regular doctors when I join the program?
No, you do not have to change physicians. We encourage you to keep all your normal doctors. As an Internal Medicine practice (Addison Internal Medicine), we can work with your current doctors to adjust all of your medications as needed during the course of your lifestyle changes.
Do you sell supplements at DietMD® ?
We do not sell supplements. Any supplements used in the program are at the patient’s will.
Do I need bloodwork and labs done before joining the program?
While bloodwork and labs are optional, we do recommend a bloodwork panel when you first start the program. We recommend repeating this specific panel every 4 months to monitor your internal progress along with your external weight loss.
Is bloodwork covered by my health insurance?
Bloodwork is usually covered by your health insurance provider. For our self-pay option, lab costs range between $0 and $350.
