Weight Loss

You can achieve long-lasting weight loss and better health through clinically proven nutrition and knowledgeable support with the Take Shape for Life program featuring Medifast® products. These foods are convenient, nutritionally balanced and provide everything your body needs to lose weight quickly and safely.

Medifast is an effective weight loss meal replacement program. With Medifast, you can lose up to 2-5 lbs per week safely and quickly without feeling hungry. It's been recommended by 20,000 doctors since 1980 and used by over a million customers. Medifast isn't a pill or a quick fix; it's a nutrition plan that works. Medifast helps you lose weight without feeling hungry or deprived. When you don't feel hungry, you can stick to your healthy eating plan until you reach your goal.

Acu-Care uses Medifast when you need to reduce your weight by 20 pounds or more. After that, you are transitioned into healthier eating habits by using the Standard Process Purification Program.

How is Purification different from a diet?
Fad diets sell a lot of books, but they ignore the way our bodies actually work. Gaining the weight back (plus a little extra) is all too common.

The Standard Process Purification Program is different. This is a program that helps you live a healthier life by purifying, nourishing and maintaining a healthy body and weight.

You will use whole food supplements to help your body detoxify and rebuild itself, naturally - from the inside out. You'll also be supporting the organ systems that play a role in purification.

Throughout this program, you may find yourself eating foods that may be new to you. As a result, you'll be enjoying some new tastes, new textures and a whole new you.*
