Weight Loss | Groups
Groups - Strength in numbers
In this social environment, you’ll meet others embarking on the same journey. Small groups (3-6 on average) enable members to learn from the experience of others and provides support from like-minded individuals for the life changes required to be successful. Everyone in your group will be sharing the same journey of weight loss through I.M. 120.
Many people find this form of group accountability to be highly motivating. With the team approach you will have people cheering you on. If you are so inclined, you have the option to speak less and listen more, learning from others through observation. The relationships you build in your group can be continued indefinitely as you graduate and move into your maintenance program. The groups will not always consist of the same people. Individuals who thrive in groups are those who are open to making new relationships and would enjoy the benefit of "friendly competition".
Can I convert from individual to group or vice versa?
You can change at any point. When converting from individual to group the cost difference is not refunded. When going from group to individual you are required you to pay the original difference in cost between the two programs.
Treatment - Phase 1
This treatment cycle lasts for six months.The most common pattern would include weekly group meetings with your individual counselor for the first eight weeks, followed by meetings every other week for 4 months. We have found the six-month interval to be essential to achieve durable, significant weight loss. Rather than have to make a decision every week, or have rapid loss followed by rapid weight gain, the six-month interval is an essential part of I.M. 120 for permanent loss. Variations of this approach can include telephone meetings for those who are traveling or are some distance from the center.
Your core curriculum will include techniques to deal with the triggers for your eating, such as;
Neutralizing comfort eating
Interrupting habitual eating
Diminishing hunger drive
Time is also spent learning techniques for coping with social eating such as;
Family and social gatherings
Essential vitamin, mineral and supplements support: In many cases, shrinking caloric intake can expose you to micronutrient deficiencies. Your phase 1 treatment will include consultation with an I.M. 120 expert to prescribe the right balance of supplements to ensure optimization of vital organ and brain function.
Regular physician appointments; There will be regular appointments with an I.M. 120 Dr. to monitor progress, adjust medications, and if indicated reduce or eliminate other drugs that are no longer needed as your weight diminishes. I.M. 120 has pioneered many combinations of specially balanced prescription medications and nutraceuticals. These will be formulated based upon your individual need and monitored to ensure maximum benefit and safety. Medications are used to support your success and are not a permanent feature of your life going forward.
