Weight Loss
at AIM


Achieve your goals, reach for new horizons and live your fittest, healthiest life.

Experience a medically-supervised, personalized approach to weight loss, and get real, lasting results.

 

Weight Loss at Alpine Integrated Medicine

Research suggests that 80% of people who lose weight gain a large portion of it back over time.  Why is that?

Could it be that our tendency to look for fad diets, quick weight loss schemes, and our reliance on fake, packaged food products is giving us only short term results that are unsustainable?

Most people who want to lose wieght sign up for a "diet-in-a-box" program, where they are sent pre made meals, and where they can still "eat whatever they want".  It's part of our desire for quick fixes and easy solutions.  The thing is...when you stop eating the fake food, you just lose all the progress you made.  You did a thing, but you learned nothing.  

That approach is both impersonal, and unsustainable.  And it doesn't work.  

At AIM, we have a real, medically supervised program that both gets results and gives you the knowledge about your own body, and about food and nutrition, so that after you get to your fitness goal, you can maintain that success.

The goal is not just image...it's image and health.  One without the other will not give you the happiness and satisfaction that you truly want.

If this sounds like what you've been looking for, we invite you to book a free 15 minute consultation with an AIM Physician.

 

What Does an Initial Visit Look Like?

The initial visit is deep and comprehensive.  It's part get to know you, part fact finding mission, part strategy session, part medical office visit.  It's a 1-hour visit with a physician, and the best part is, it can be billed to your insurance.  Your first office visit includes a conversation with a naturopathic physician who learns of aspects of your health that may improve with a weight loss program. These may include cardiovascular concerns like high blood pressure or high cholesterol, metabolic disorders & diabetes, kidneys and digestion, joints and muscles, even socio-emotional factors.

As we get to know you, your lifestyle, your weight and fitness goals, and your diet, we will also want to do some testing to see what data we can collect that will help us to create a successful plan for you.

This may include routine blood work, a comprehensive metabolic panel, and a biometric scan to learn more about your body composition and give you other important data that will inform our weight loss plan.

We lay out a strategy based on your personal goals, and you leave with key data about your health and body composition, and an initial weight loss plan, including an estimate on how long it will take to reach your goal.  

From there, it's up to you to follow the plan, so we will encourage you to commit to an AIM follow up plan until your goal is realized.

Consistency and Follow Up gets Results

​Accountability = Results.  If you don't commit to weekly check-ins, it is much less probable that you will succeed.  That's just the reality of being a human and living life.  You're busy.  You're stressed.  And if you don't have someone holding you accountable, you might not make it.

You and your physician will decide on a follow-up appointment schedule to keep you committed to your weight loss goals. 

Follow-up appointments are either 30 or 60 minutes and include a physical exam with biometric scans, and injection therapies to boost metabolism.  In the 60 minute option, we also provide personalized diet and exercise counseling.  So for the more independent person who is comfortable with shopping, cooking, and meal plans, the 30 minute option is great.  For the person who knows they need a little more support in terms of their day-to-day meals and exercise, the 60 minute option provides time to go deep into those areas each week. 

Using the Latest Technology and Lab Testing for Personalized Care

As a medical clinic, we are much more robust than what you might find in a typical weight loss center or program.  We have the technology and equipment, as well as lab testing, to serve your broader health care needs.  That said, we have some special tools that are designed to help you lose weight.  Learn more about it in your free consult and initial visit!

Start with a free 15 minute consultation with Dr. Carpio 

In this initial conversation, Dr. Carpio will ask you what your goals are, and describe our program to you, along with the various ways we tailor the program to meet your specific needs.  If you want to move forward, we will book the Initial In-Depth Visit to get the data we need to start crafting your personalized weight loss plan.
