MyNewSelf offers medical treatment for obesity for non-surgical patients. We also provide medical management for surgical patients who have to complete a supervised medical weight loss program before bariatric surgery.

Medically Assisted Weight Loss In St. Louis, Missouri

Medical weight loss management begins with an in-depth evaluation of your overall health, past medical and surgical history, medications, family and social history. The medical team utilizes techniques such as body composition analysis and pathway genomics to tailor our care plan for you.

Supervised Weight Loss Before Surgery

Our team can provide you with the tools and education that will help you successfully complete the step, get and stay fit.  We like to consider our health care center a place for medical weight loss.

You’ll start with a one-hour, one-on-one meeting with one of our registered dietitians who will review your current eating and exercise habits. We’ll talk about your previous weight loss attempts to learn more about how we can help. We’ll also tell you more about our program including the diet, calorie limits, and exercise requirements, this is part of our health management.

The daily eating plan for your home and Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program includes:

  • A high-protein meal replacement shake
  • Two high-protein, low carbohydrate meals
  • Two healthy snacks such as fruit, dairy or some starches

We’ll provide a food list including locations where you can buy the protein meal-replacement shakes.

Once you complete your initial meeting, you will start attending hour-long monthly classes that will give you more information about your weight loss journey. The classes include topics such as label reading, mindful eating, protein, eating out and exercise.

You will set monthly goals that encompass diet and lifestyle as well as exercise. You’ll keep a daily food and exercise diary. Each month, a registered dietitian will meet with you to review your food and exercise diary and discuss your goals. Then you’ll set new goals for the next month.

If your insurance requires a physician’s supervision during the program, we’ll schedule an appointment with one of our surgeons or our physician assistant after your monthly class time.
