Anyone can go on the latest crazy diet and lose weight. Today’s fad diet may have you eat nothing but tree bark for a week. Tomorrow’s may have you eat more lettuce than a mutant bunny. You’ll lose the weight as long as you follow the usually punitive restraints of the diet.
But then you’ll gain it back. Research shows that 95 percent of the people who lose weight on a diet regain it — and sometimes add more — within two years.
That’s bogus. You want permanent weight loss, and that’s why Dr. Gage created the Permanens™ Lifestyle Change Program (PLC) and Permanens™ Weight Management System (WMS) — to induce permanent weight loss. At Park Avenue Endocrinology & Nutrition our PLC Program provides 16 weeks of educational instruction using behavior modification techniques and meal replacement food. Our licensed nurse practitioner and our board-certified endocrinologists provide ongoing weekly one-hour group or individual meetings to help you stay on track.
Weight loss solution
The PCL will show you how to avoid falling into certain self-defeating behaviors. The program seeks to change the yo-yo reality of dieting and weight gain. To do this we’ll show you the “Three R’s of Behavior Modification.” You’ll learn defensive eating techniques and other methods to attain and maintain your weight loss goals.
