Behavioral Counseling is at the core of what we do…
It is a fact supported by countless studies. In order to achieve a lifelong healthy weight you must engage in behaviors that promote weight loss and maintenance. But, easier said than done, right?
That’s why we created our personalized behavioral counseling system, which forms the foundation of any CMWL plan you follow. We customize a behavioral plan just for you using our library of 43 behavioral modules across 9 different categories. Change begins from within, and your counseling plan can help you overcome the root causes of your weight loss challenges.
Your decision to participate in the program is largely based on your motivation level to lose weight and your medical safety-risk profile. At your initial consultation visit, the provider will review the CMWL plans you are eligible for and the cost of each personalized plan option. Again, individualized behavioral counseling is a part of any plan you follow, which will teach you the skills necessary to maintain your weight loss for the long term.
Are you ready to experience weight loss in a whole new way?
Let’s first talk about what it is not…
Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is weight management based on medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Trained doctors or medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary to help you achieve weight loss and maintain it for life.
Anyone who is concerned about their health
The United State Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that all adults get annual weight screenings.
Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. It is especially beneficial for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher because it can reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions.
The tools that medical weight loss providers use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you might find with commercial programs. Medical weight loss providers use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress, something other plans can’t do. See the chart below for other differences…

Personalization from the start
If you have already located your CMWL center and made an appointment for your initial consultation, here’s what to do next and what you can expect!
Your visit starts even before you arrive. You should receive an email from the center with a link asking you to register for an online CMWL.com to fill out a weight-focused profile questionnaire. This will ask you about your medical history as it relates to weight, medications you may be taking, and a variety of lifestyle questions. Providing this basic information will serve to increase your provider’s ability to personalize your program experience.
When you arrive at a CMWL center, you will receive a healthy weight screening. During your healthy weight screening, the CMWL center will check your blood pressure, and provide you with multiple, personalized metrics, including risk factors, associated with your weight. You will receive an individualized report to review your metrics and projected weight loss on each of the available plans offered by the center. Your healthy weight screening (and associated metrics) serve as baseline measures in tracking your progress at each step of your weight loss plan.
Finally, the CMWL provider will review your medical history, screening report, and profile questionnaire and then will sit down to get to know you. This is the time to open up about your weight loss goals and challenges, and what you truly want to get out of a weight loss plan. In order for the CMWL provider to meet your individual needs, he or she needs to get to know the whole you!
At the end of your visit, you’ll have a plan, personalized just for you!
If you decide to enroll in the program you’ll not only be following a medically proven weight loss approach, but also building a relationship with your CMWL provider, who will be your greatest support through the process.
