Fueling healthy changes

Careful attention to good nutrition is an essential part of every medical and surgical weight loss program. The right nutrition supports your body and prepares you for long-term health and weight management.

Our physicians and registered dietitians work with each of our patients to design a customized plan that’s perfect for meeting your unique nutritional needs so you have the nutritional support you need for healthy weight loss.

Your Custom Nutrition Plan

Getting the right amount of vitamins, minerals and nutrients as you lose weight is extremely important. Your individualized plan includes:

  • Making healthy food choices,
  • Eating appropriate portion sizes
  • Taking nutrition supplements as recommended by your healthcare team.

Understanding Supplements

Your nutrition plan may include protein, vitamin and mineral supplements as a way to correct or prevent nutrient deficiencies. These specialized supplements are formulated to meet the specific needs of patients going through medical and surgical weight loss programs, and are available for purchase at the UC Health Weight Loss Center office.

As a convenience to our patients, we also offer a variety of shakes, bars, soups, snacks and dietary supplements that can help support your healthy weight loss. These items come from only the most reputable manufacturers. Your dietitian will help guide you to products that may be most helpful for you.

Patients who follow their care team’s recommendations achieve excellent results. We are here to provide you with the knowledge and resources you need to be successful, not only before and during your weight loss program, but in the weeks, months and years that follow.
