Weight Loss



PicMed – Offers fully customized medical weight loss programs from licensed medical professionals.

Weight Loss is a complex problem that requires a variety of treatment options. No single treatment will work for all people.

We provide a custom weight loss and maintenance solution for each of our patients to ensure that the treatment conforms to the lifestyle, medical needs, weight loss, and budgetary goals of the individual. Our medical staff will work with you to provide the best weight loss programs for you but will always make sure in the process that we do not compromise your long term health and well being.

All weight loss programs will have pros and cons but there is no program available that can be successful in the long term if, at the end of your weight loss journe,y you do not incorporate a lifestyle in which you burn more calories than you take in.  For that reason diet and exercise must be incorporated into any long term plan.  Our programs work for individuals who want to lose anywhere from 1-100lbs or more.  At PicMed we offer the Med-Trim Weight loss program that can also benefit those that may not be looking to lose weight but want to live and eat healthier.  All our products and medical supplements have been thoroughly tested and reviewed by our medical staff.  For cost scenarios and/or to determine which program is right for you, please call our staff today.

***Individual results may vary.  Weight loss based on the PicMed’s unique combination of medication, a calorie-reduced diet, regular exercise and plenty of fluids. **

Medical Monitoring

You start your journey to a new you with a visit by our medical staff. During this visit our staff will review your medical and weight loss history as well as conduct a general wellness exam. The physician will instruct you in the proper implementation of the MedTrim Weight Loss System and will customize the program to fit your specific needs. In addition, you will visit with our fully-dedicated MedTrim nurse who will instruct you in some of the finer details of the program. This nurse will be your on-going support and contact outside of your monthly visits as well as be a valuable resource that will help motivate you and keep you on track towards your weight loss goals.

Low and moderate-Calorie Diet

Our medical staff will customize a MedTrim diet plan that  is easy to follow and offers great flexibility of food choices.  Our medical professionals will factor in your lifestyle, activity and medical history before choosing the best diet plan you.  We are not a one size fits all program and you will receive one on one medical consultation.   After your initial medical evaluation with our doctor you will be encouraged to follow a plan that allows you to eat more than you might expect for the first few days. This allows your body to prepare for its rapid weight loss.

For the remainder of the program, the MedTrim system will have you follow a moderate calorie diet. With any diet, it is necessary to practice portion and calorie control. We will provide all of our patients with detailed information about the food that should be consumed on this diet and the foods that should be avoided. Furthermore, this information will contain nutritional information for common foods found in the grocery store and even restaurants. We help take the guesswork and inconvenience out of the diet plan.

Appetite Suppressants

Precription Medication These suppressants come in varying dosages and, after the doctor’s consultation, we can match suppressants appropriately to your individualized weight loss goals. Many of our clients do benefit from a prescription appetite suppressant. This is a decision made by you and our medical staff.

Vitamin Supplement

Weight loss can deplete some essential vitamins and nutrients within the body. The MedTrim system includes specifically formulated vitamin supplements to combat this loss. Although our diets are designed to cause the body to burn excess fat rather than lean muscle, vitamin depletion is still a concern. Initially, the MedTrim system will give its patients a selected supply of vitamin supplements and dependent upon your body’s reaction, patients can continue or add to their initial supplement program by purchasing from our privately designed vitamin stock.  Our vitamins contain the highest quality ingredients on the market today.  Each and every vitamin and dietary supplement has been tested and approved by our medical staff.

Exercise Plan

Beyond mere weight loss, the MedTrim system teaches your body to accept a lower, base-line weight. The system is designed to help patients attain overall behavioral changes to aid them in long-term weight control.  It is imperative to know that exercise is an essential factor in maintaining a new, leaner you.  For long term weight loss and maintenance, an exercise program must be considered.

Online Nutrition Program

As a patient, we will provide you with information regarding the best online nutritional programs and trackers available.  Many of these are free resources that we encourage our patients to use.   These programs give you the opportunity to track your daily nutrition, create healthy meals, and to track activity levels.   Monitoring food intake is essential to maintaining your weight and for creating healthy meals and eating habits for long term success.

Lifestyle Education

Long-term weight loss success is based on changing aspects of a person’s lifestyle that has contributed to that individual being overweight.

Lifestyle change is critical to your success and without it, most weight loss is only temporary.  This explains our country’s low weight loss success rates where the majority of people attempt weight management through diet alone.
