The Emory Bariatric Center offers a customized nonsurgical weight loss and weight management program, Your Weigh. Your Weigh is a 16-week medically-supervised weight loss program that offers three meal plan options:

  1. Full Meal Replacement – following the full meal replacement weight loss plan, patients consume OPTIFAST® meal replacements (soups, bars or shakes) for approximately 12 weeks (may vary by individual), followed by a gradual transition back to food.
  2. Partial Meal Replacement – following the partial meal replacement weight loss plan, patients select 3 OPTIFAST® meal replacements per day and add in some of their own food and recipes. A typical day on the partial meal replacement plan would include a meal replacement for breakfast, morning snack, and afternoon snack, with a healthy lunch and dinner of reasonable portion size. Each meal plan will be tailored to your individual needs based on personalized body composition study.
  3. No Meal Replacement – following this meal plan, patients use their own food and recipes (no OPTIFAST® meal replacements are included) as guided by your weight loss physician and dietitian. Each meal plan will be tailored to the individual needs based on personalized body composition study.

Every weight loss meal plan in the Your Weigh program includes:

  • Initial and ongoing supervision by an Emory Bariatric Center physician
  • One-on-one consultations with our registered dietitian
  • Medical diagnostics (varies by meal plan)
  • Body composition studies throughout the program
  • Regular lifestyle education group meetings to keep you motivated and focused on your weight loss goals

Our comprehensive, nonsurgical weight loss program is designed to focus on factors affecting not just your weight, but overall health. Post program support group attendance is critical for ongoing success after the 16 week “active” phase of the program is completed.
