Christie Clinic Launches Medical Weight Loss Program
September 12th, 2011
Christie Clinic is launching Transformations, a medical weight loss program for its patients, the community and employees. Christie Clinic’s Transformations is lead by Dr. Nathan Walker, a Christie Clinic internal medicine physician.
Christie Clinic’s Transformations combines support from dedicated coaches, nutrition education, and weight & measurement progress from healthcare professionals with gourmet foods from Ideal Protein®. The Ideal Protein weight loss method has proven, long-lasting results. The gourmet foods help participants lose weight, maintain muscle, revitalize skin, promote vitality and energy and re-establish pancreatic function (insulin). During Christie Clinic’s Transformations program, participants learn how to keep the pounds off long after graduating from the program.
Christie Clinic’s Transformations will be located at 700 S. Gregory St., Urbana, IL. Participants can visit their health coach and pick up their food weekly at this location.
“America spends more than $150 billion a year on health care related to obesity, with 70-80% of medical problems related to obesity,” said Dr. Walker. “One of the best ways, we at Christie Clinic thought we could help our patients and a community struggling with a high obesity rate was to introduce a proven, medical weight loss program implemented by Christie Clinic health professionals.”
“When we prescribe weight loss to our patients, few patients know where to turn. Now, we have a trusted program to recommend,” added Dr. Walker.
To sign up for Christie Clinic’s Transformations, interested participants must attend a Transformations Informational Meeting held twice a month. To R.S.V.P. for a Transformations Informational Meeting, contact the Christie Clinic Transformations office at 366-7460.
The next Christie Clinic Transformations Information Session is Tuesday, September 27 at 6:30 p.m.
