If you decide to lose weight without surgery, you'll find many options through the New England Weight Management Institute.
These include: one-on-one weight counseling with a dietitian, exercise evaluation and training, medically supervised weight loss with the use of FDA approved weight loss medications, and the OPTIFAST® medically supervised fasting program for rapid weight loss. We will work with you to find the right combination of treatments to help you loose weight.
CMC is the only OPTIFAST® clinic in Southern New Hampshire offering support and lifestyle education to ensure long term success.
How the OPTIFAST® Program Works
Before you enter the OPTIFAST® Program, you’ll receive an initial evaluation to determine if OPTIFAST® is right for you.
Once you start the program, you’ll progress through the three phases:
- Active Weight Loss: You’ll consume the OPTIFAST® meal replacement formulas instead of your usual foods, so you don’t have to worry about counting calories. You will also begin important lifestyle changes.
- Transition: You’ll gradually learn how to add self-prepared foods back into your diet, while continuing with lifestyle change education.
- Long-Term Management: You can participate in ongoing classes and support sessions to help you manage your weight in the future.
