Sustain Weight Loss

We believe there’s more to the weight loss equation than willpower. Will and dedication don’t have to be your only tools for weight loss.

We offer several ways for you to embark on your weight loss journey. Work individually with us in our St. Louis-based office or connect virtually with your dietitian by meeting over the phone or online.

If you've lost weight only to regain it months or years later, check out our Resting Metabolic Rate Testing or Genetic Testing Services.

Our Weight Loss Packages

The journey towards recovery, body composition changes, and lasting good eating habits is easier with support.

If you’re seeking weight-loss, we recommend our resting metabolic rate test  (RMR) in conjunction with your weight loss package. Every human body is unique. Which means the standardized calculations for how many calories you burn in a day aren’t completely accurate.

In addition to our RMR test, we also offer genetic testing. Genetic testing helps us to better understand how your body responds to nutrients and exercise. This allows your dietitian to take your personalized plan to the next level.

Weight loss success is improved with the frequency of contacts with your dietitian. Follow-up sessions can be in person, via phone or by our online video platform, zoom.

Timing between follow-up sessions will determined by your dietitian and you!

We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team as much as possible. It may be helpful for us to connect with your physician and/or therapist in order to provide you with the best care possible.
