As a board-certified vascular surgeon and a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Widmeyer understands the harm excess body weight can have on a person’s health. It is a direct cause of blood vessel disease and a host of other chronic conditions. Using a scientifically designed program that he successfully followed himself,
Dr. Widmeyer tailors a plan that addresses your unique needs, and can help you lose fat and weight while maintaining
lean muscle mass.
The three phases of the Ideal Protein Protocol are designed to help you set, achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. During the Phase 1, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to turn to its fat stores for energy. By eating Ideal Protein foods, Phase 2 helps to sustain muscle mass while teaching you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices, and Phase 3 helps to maintain your weight after weight loss is achieved.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol addresses weight issues at their source; reducing carbohydrates and fats while ensuring adequate daily protein intake. In other words, the goal is to lose fat, not muscle. While on the Protocol, through personalized coaching, you’re also provided with healthier lifestyle education so that you are empowered to sustain your weight loss results over your life course.
As an authorized Ideal Protein Weight Loss Clinic, Widmeyer Vein & Wellness Center is stocked with a broad selection of delicious meals and snacks.
Widmeyer Vein & Wellness Center medically supervises each client and is staffed with coaches to help you along your weight loss journey.
The lipomelt treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the face, waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms.
There are no risks or side effects using lipomelt. It is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuctions. Lipomelt treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and it enters the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body as you simply enjoy a relaxing 20-minute rest with gentle warmth and quiet music.
No changes are required, but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake somewhat and increase your water consumption to 8-10 glasses a day. Meanwhile, reducing alcohol consumption will help the liver.
