Frequently Asked Questions

How does Care Club Lite work?

Care Club Lite is weight loss management service that integrates a variety of weight loss resources and systems into a single, custom-designed program that is monitored by your physician and the Care Club Lite team. Your physician will work with you 1-on-1 to design a program that will work best for your needs and Care Club Lite will help in supporting you throughout your weight loss journey. Initial consultations are done with your Care Club Lite provider, and follow-up progress and maintenance visits can be done at one of our Care Club Lite centers.

How do I find a Care Club Lite provider near me?

You may enter your zip code into the Find a Physician tool and you will be given the contact information for physicians in your area who can get you started.

Are the Care Club Lite weight loss programs safe?

Yes, the programs are safe and effective for weight loss. Also, patients often experience a tremendous amount of health benefits by way of reduced or eliminated conditions related to obesity.

How is Care Club Lite different from other weight loss services?

Care Club Lite is a physician-supervised weight loss program, which means that not only are medications available to assist in your weight loss (when appropriate) but you are also being treated with your entire health profile in mind. Further, Care Club Lite is fully customizable with you and your physician deciding the best food, nutrition, medication, and activity options.

How do I know I’ll receive good care from Care Club Lite and the Care Club Lite providers?

Each of our Care Club Lite physicians is board-certified. In some cases, your existing physician may even be your Care Club Lite provider.

What kinds of foods can I eat on the program?

Your Care Club Lite provider will design a low-calorie diet specific to your medical and nutritional needs and your weight loss goals. The diets consist of healthy, balanced meals that are also delicious. Some patients decide to utilize a meal delivery service and have the meals prepared for them, and others decide to follow our guidelines and prepare their own. Either way, you can be assured that eating healthy doesn't mean you have to eat a bland, overly-resticted diet. Although calories and nutrition are heavily leaned upon, portion control, activity, medication, and meal patterns all play key roles in weight loss.

Do I have to exercise on the program?

While no program explicitly requires exercise, it is accepted within the medical community that exercise increases the likelihood of losing and maintaining a healthy weight. If an activity level increase is necessary for you, your physician and Care Club Lite will work with you to develop an activity plan.

Do I have to take weight loss medication?

You are not required to take medication. However, your doctor may prescribe a safe medication to help curb your appetite and suppress food cravings. Your Care Club Lite provider can also review any other medications you are currently taking to see if they might be interfering with your weight loss efforts and can then adjust those medications accordingly.

Do I have to be extremely overweight to consider Care Club Lite?

No. Care Club Lite programs are not just for people who are extremely overweight – they’re for anyone who is unhappy with or unhealthy due to his or her weight. Your Care Club Lite provider will let you know if, for some reason, you aren't eligible for the Care Club Lite program.

What will be the best plan for me? How long will it take?

At your initial consultation, the physician will be able to let you know which plan is best suited for you and how long it will take you to lose weight if you stick to the program. The decision of which program is right for you is based on your age, medical condition(s), and motivation level. The physician’s goal is to find the program and plan that will work the best and be the most effective based on your individual needs.

Does my insurance cover any of the weight loss program's cost?

At this time, Care Club Lite programs are private pay only.

How quickly can I expect to see results?

Most patients begin to see results within the first few weeks and continue to lose weight as they continue the program. Medication and/or activity level increases may also speed up your weight loss process.

How often do I have to visit a Care Club Lite provider or center?

Visit frequency depends on the requirements of your personalized program, however most patients visit on either a bi-weekly or monthly basis.

How long do I have to stay on the Care Club Lite program?

The length of time you participate in the Care Club Lite program depends on the program you use, how much weight you need to lose, and how dedicated you are to the plan. Some patients are able to reach their goals in just a few months, and others utilize the program long-term to help them reach and maintain their goal weight. The choice is always yours and depends greatly on your adherence to the program.
