Participation in this program requires a physician referral or prescription.
Nutrition Solutions Program is a comprehensive medical nutrition therapy and weight loss program that focuses on the entire picture of your health, not just a snapshot of your weight. Our comprehensive program combines education and the PrescriptFit® product line "to help you control disease, produce weight loss and avoid deprivation."
Nutrition Solutions Program starts with PrescriptFit®, complete nutritional food. You can have as much as desired and feel assured of nutritional health. The program does not eliminate any food groups, but rather focuses on food phases including low-fat, low-calorie, structured food groups without eliminating or over-emphasizing any single food group.
PrescriptFit® helps fight disease using branched-chain amino acids. Recent research links these to safely fighting inflammation, cardiac disease, metabolic disorders, and mental health problems (American Journal of Cardiology). You pinpoint where and how symptoms improve. Measures of improvement are tracked using “clinically significant measures” - lab tests performed to test your patients’ blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, etc.
What makes PrescriptFit® different than other nutritional therapy and weight loss products on the market?
