The Living Lite Program is a 12 week weight loss program run in partnership with your referring doctor and our experienced practice nurses. The program is supported by iNova Pharmaceuticals and is often run with the appetite suppressant medication Duramine.
You will be given a sample of Duramine if appropriate, and your doctor will organise ongoing scripts if you find the medication works for you.
At your first appointment, you will be provided with a Health & Lifestyle kit containing a recipe book, calorie counter, and measurement tape. Our nurses will help you determine a meal plan that is suitable for you, and follow up with healthy eating habits. Sometimes you just need to be accountable to someone!
At Wellcare Medical Centre, we take a more healthy approach to weight loss that does not focus solely on the kg value on the scales. Our practice nurses will take your measurements regularly, as well as doing a body composition analysis which will assess your body fat mass and percentage, muscle mass and percentage, water weight, bone mass and BMI in order to obtain a more well-rounded picture of your health and weight loss needs. Your doctor may also take blood tests to determine if you have any nutritional deficiencies.
