A brief informational session regarding Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center’s new Medical Weight Loss Clinic will take place at 5:30 pm on Thursday, March 19, in the Visiting Specialty Clinic.

This free event will include taste testing of actual foods used in the weight loss program and a question-and-answer session with an Ideal Protein representative.

The program utilizes a medically-supervised, scientifically based approach, called Ideal Protein, which promotes fat loss while supporting muscle mass.

“Simply put, the program promotes protein and controls carbs—while staying within your daily allotment of protein,” said Crystal White, FNP-C, manager of the program.

Ideal Protein is a four-phase program featuring one-on-one coaching and balanced lifestyle education to help maintain results after dieting. The program emphasizes the health benefits that can be realized through weight loss.

“Staff who have tried the program have all shown great success, both in weight loss and laboratory findings, such as blood sugar and electrolytes,” said White. “We have even been able to reduce medications.”

Tiffany Sallee, LPN, is the clinic’s health coach and program facilitator. Sallee works closely with White to run the program.

To register for the free event, call (217) 465-CARE (2273).
