appetite-1239057_1920Losing weight sounds easy, but that is seldom the case. Certain weight loss programs can be dangerous to not only a person’s health, but their wallet as well. These programs often do not even produce the results desired by the person. Luckily, AFC Urgent Care Pembroke Pines is proud to offer a weight loss program where participants can SAFELY lose up to 25 pounds in only 40 days!

One of the primary attributes of our program is a portion-controlled eating plan. A portion controlled eating plan works by specifying the amount (portion or serving size) of foods eaten during a day. Our eating plan recommends consuming between 1,200 – 1,500 calories per day of your own food. This means you can still have homemade chicken pot pie or double chocolate cake; so long as it is portioned correctly.

Correctly portioning your food does not mean carrying around measuring cups to ensure you are eating exactly one serving for meals. Many single serving sizes of fruits, vegetables, or meats are able to be compared to household items in order to remember how much you should be eating. For example, a single serving of most vegetables or fruit is about the size of your fist and a serving of meat is about the size of a standard deck of cards. Our board-certified physicians are able to consult with participants on a bi-weekly basis to provide feedback as well as assistance with any setbacks in the program.

Portion-control is one of the safest, and most effective methods of losing weight because it does not drastically change anything for your body. In order to lose weight, a person needs to burn more calories than they are consuming. At AFC Urgent Care Pembroke Pines, our weight-loss program is offered at a fraction of the cost of most programs and there are fewer health risks!
