How do I get started with LeanMD

The LeanMD program at Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center can help anyone struggling with their weight, whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 150 pounds. At your first visit, Dr. Carson has you complete a detailed questionnaire, so she can get a better understanding of your general health and specific concerns. 

She performs a physical exam, which includes measurements of your body composition. Depending on your current health and medical history, Dr. Carson may also suggest other diagnostic tests, such as blood work or an electrocardiogram.

You then meet one-on-one with Dr. Carson to discuss your weight loss goals, which helps her develop your personalized weight loss plan. Dr. Carson also introduces you to your LeanMD mentor who provides additional support throughout your weight loss journey. 


What can I expect when following the LeanMD program?

Dr. Carson develops individualized plans using LeanMD protocols to help you lose weight, so your plan may not be like anyone else’s. Components of your plan may include:

  • Nutrition menu and recipes
  • LeanMD shakes
  • Nutrition supplements
  • Metabolism boosters
  • Vitamin B12 shots
  • FDA-approved appetite suppressant medication

Dr. Carson has you return to the office weekly at which time you’ll meet with your mentor who checks your overall health and measures your weight. 

After you’ve been following the program for a month, Dr. Carson and your mentor talk to you about adding exercise to your program, as well as incorporating other lifestyle habits that lead to long-term weight loss success. 

Dr. Carson and your mentor will continue to provide ongoing lifestyle coaching even after you’ve lost the weight to help you stay on track.
