The SlimGenics STEP Program
The SlimGenics STEP program is a balanced approach to weight loss with a proven track record of success. Our plans are nutritionally designed to help you develop proper eating habits for long-term success. One-on-one counseling and supervision along with behavioral education contribute to the safety and effectiveness of our program.
Since 2003, SlimGenics has provided a comprehensive approach to weight loss, weight control and weight management. Our successful program is based on the biological science of thermogenesis, a pragmatic and scientifically proven process that enables and promotes the burning of storage fat. Currently, we offer personalized weight reduction programs in Colorado and Minnesota that are professionally supervised and nutritionally designed to develop proper eating habits for lasting success. Our new and improved STEP Program takes our integrative approach to weight loss to the next level with even more flexibility, nutrition education and a focus on long-term change.
At SlimGenics, each client is put on an easy-to-follow, nutritionally balanced weight reduction program based on how much weight they need to lose, age, gender, activity level and health profile. Every nutritional plan is flexible with room for individual choices and food selection. Best of all, the program utilizes regular, grocery store food that can be prepared at home or ordered out at most restaurants. Your nutritional food plan is coupled with one-on-one personal counseling which offers you the structure and accountability needed for success and enables you to lose your weight consistently with fewer plateaus. This integrated approach also reinforces the healthy habits and behaviors that can keep you thin for a lifetime. For difficult life challenges like losing weight, personalized counseling and coaching are vital to success. The one-on-one counseling you receive throughout the program provides the guidance, support and encouragement needed for success. Your progress is supervised and monitored every step of the way to ensure a safe and healthy weight loss. Plan adjustments and recommendations are based on your specific circumstances and, when appropriate, on your physician’s recommendations. As you reach one milestone after another, we celebrate your successes. You can look forward to positive reinforcement of your achievements!
While on the SlimGenics STEP program, you will enjoy eating a balanced diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, eggs, starches, dairy and fats. Our program also accommodates special conditions related to food intolerances or food sensitivities and vegetarian lifestyles. Some foods and beverages are restricted during the weight reduction phase, but all foods are gradually added back to your diet after you reach your goal weight. You will be thrilled by the flexibility your plan provides and the exceptional food choices available so you won’t be hungry or bored!
Your age, gender, health history, activity level and degree of obesity determine the rate at which you lose weight. Studies show that healthy clients who follow their personalized nutritional plans lose an average of 3 to 5 pounds per week. Many medical conditions will not slow down weight loss. However, if you have a pre-existing medical condition or take medication that may slow down your weight loss, you will be advised of this at your consultation. Most clients who fall in this category will still experience an average weight loss of 2 to 3 pounds per week.
You will attend only one small group meeting at the start of your program. It is designed to provide new clients with general information about the SlimGenics nutritional program and what to expect on your weight loss journey. It’s also an excellent opportunity to ask questions and learn valuable tips from one of our professional Program Advisors. Throughout the remainder of the program, it’s all about you – and the personalized, individual attention you receive from our experienced Program Advisors.
At SlimGenics, it’s about variety! Variety of food choices and variety of counseling support. Each SlimGenics center is staffed with professional and well-trained Program Advisors who are all committed to your success! All SlimGenics staff members go through an extensive training and receive continuous education on our program on an ongoing basis. Our Program Advisors have varied professional backgrounds and include: Registered Nurses, Registered Dietitians, Certified Nutritionists, Degreed Health Professionals, Cognitive Therapists, Degreed Counselors, Degreed Kinesiologists and Degreed experts in Physical Education. Several of our Program Advisors have walked a mile in your shoes. They are former SlimGenics clients who want to share their success by helping others achieve their weight loss goals. Many of our Program Advisors travel between centers so that clients get the benefit of this varied expertise. Our Program Advisors provide a comprehensive resource pool for you to draw on for your individual needs if required.
The only appointment you need to make is for the initial, free consultation. After that, no appointment is necessary. Just stop in at your convenience when it is a good time for you!
The SlimGenics STEP program uses regular grocery store food that you can prepare yourself at home or that you can order in most restaurants. We do not make you dependent on expensive, pre-packaged meals. The program is family friendly so you are not eating separately during meal times. Our focus is on teaching you healthy eating habits and portion control that you and your entire family can benefit from for the rest of your lives.
The SlimGenics STEP program takes your health history and current medical condition into consideration when determining your nutritional program. Your health and well-being are our primary concern. We monitor blood pressure and chart general wellness factors during counseling visits. Our staff includes registered nurses who are available to work with your personal care provider if necessary. Some medical conditions require the co-management and supervision of your personal physician. We contact your physician, gain their authorization to proceed and provide requested updates. Common medical conditions we see on a daily basis include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart conditions, high cholesterol, arthritis/joint pain, thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, MS and cancer. When you improve your nutritional regime, you can often stabilize blood sugar, lose weight and improve your overall health. Many clients have been able to reduce or eliminate certain medications, thereby saving money and freeing themselves from this dependency.
At SlimGenics, we understand that weight-loss success after bariatric surgery is an ongoing process requiring lifestyle and behavioral changes and nutritional supplementation. We believe that your long-term success depends on your commitment to making those lifelong changes in your eating and fitness habits. SlimGenics can partner with you, providing a team of professionals that will support and coach you through this important post-surgery process. Additionally, we offer the appropriate supplementation needed for a healthy recovery and long-term weight control.
You will lose weight on the SlimGenics STEP program with or without exercising. Even though exercise is not required to lose weight, an increase in activity level is strongly encouraged as part of a healthy lifestyle. Most clients feel an immediate increase in energy when they begin to lose weight. We encourage clients to add appropriate levels of activity to their daily routines based on their individual situations. Consult with your physician before beginning an exercise program!
At SlimGenics, EVERY program is individualized so the exact cost and duration of the program is dependent on your specific needs. Because the cost of the program varies, and because we have different options available, we highly recommend that you come in for a complimentary consultation so that we can evaluate your condition and give you an exact price for the program best suited for your individual needs. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this over the phone. The program prices vary in range depending on the amount of weight you need to lose and the amount of weeks needed to achieve your weight loss goal and current enrollment promotions. The length of your program is dependent on numerous factors including your age, health history and degree of obesity. Our programs are very affordable and you can receive a discount coupon for the cost of your program right now by scheduling your appointment online. Your program price includes your personal nutritional profile, set up fees, all counseling services and some selected weight loss aids with your enrollment starter pack. SlimGenics offers proprietary weight loss aids that are available at discounted prices to our enrolled clients. We invite you to schedule your appointment today for your FREE no-obligation consultation, so that we may learn about your weight loss goals and present the current options available to you.
Since our plans are nutritionally designed for each individual, we guarantee that, if you follow the instructions you received upon enrollment, you’ll be able to reach your goal weight. At SlimGenics, your success rate is equal to how closely you adhere to the plan. If you follow the plan 100%, you’ll have 100% success. Although each plan is designed for each person, some clients may lose slower than expected and that’s why we offer a service guarantee.
Even the most diligent clients can make inadvertent mistakes. Your Program Advisor will be able to identify and correct anything that may be slowing you down in reaching your weight loss goals. They are also there to monitor your blood pressure, take measurements, track your weight loss and encourage you every step of the way. We strongly encourage you to meet with your Program Advisors at the recommended intervals or greater!
SlimGenics supports you throughout the entire weight loss process—including providing you with the tools to maintain your healthy new weight for the rest of your life. Programs that make you dependent on pre-packaged meals don’t tell you how to keep the weight off once you are no longer buying the meals. SlimGenics clients learn to eat real, grocery store food and eat out at restaurants making it possible to keep the weight off for good!
