Weight Loss Programs

As a member of the Obesity Canada organization, Dr. Sheldon Bjorgaard utilizes several medically supervised weight loss programs in his practice in order to help patients reverse metabolic syndrome, prevent disease, and gain control of their health and wellness.

'Nourish' Healthy Weight Loss Program

What is it?

  • This program is for patients who struggle to lose weight and keep it off long term, or suffer from “rebound” weight gain following periods of weight loss. It involves 12 weeks of dietary and nutritional support with a focus on intuitive and mindful eating habits, and establishing a lasting healthy relationship with food.

Who is it for?

  • This program is for those who are ready for a comprehensive dietary and lifestyle change and have not found lasting success with short term approaches. It is for those who are needing holistic and  individualized  approach rather than a "one size fits all" approach.

 

What can I expect?

  • While individual results may vary, it is common to see 0.5-1.5 lbs of weight loss per week, ongoing by implementing healthy eating habits and mindful, intuitive eating strategies and techniques.

Rapid Weight Loss (RWL) Program

What is it?

  • This is a 4-6 week program which utilizes a specific low calorie diet in order to lose body fat relatively quickly while sparing lean muscle and minimizing hunger cravings.

 

Who is it for?

  • This program is appropriate for those with 50+ pounds to lose, and can provide a “jump start” to long term change.

What can I expect?

  • While results vary on an individual basis, it is not uncommon to lose 0.5 lbs per day. This can equate to 15-20 lbs in as little as 6 weeks.
