Our Weight Loss Program
Life Changing Results
We understand. The problem you have been having with your weight loss is universal. Many people want to get a “quick fix” or a “magic pill”. You probably realize by now that there is no magic diet solution! Dr. Paul C. Tack, MD. realizes that the decision to lose weight is anything but small… it is a complete lifestyle change. Research shows that teaming with a medical professional produces greater, longer-lasting results.
There is no more effective way to lose weight than with a physician directed program. Only a medical doctor can customize a plan based on your individual needs including: medical diagnosis, medications and lifestyle. Find out why Lake County, Illinois residents are turning to Paul C. Tack, MD for personal, safe and affordable medical weight loss solutions.
We recognize the medical origin of obesity and are dedicated to working exclusively with people suffering from being overweight or obese. Equally important, we understand the health benefits of medical weight loss are more than just being thinner.
Each individualized program is supported with ongoing one-on-one counseling including sound nutritional and physical activity advise, behavior modification and FDA approved medicine (if necessary). We use the latest techniques and medical data available in the field of bariatric medicine, including high quality nutritional products and supplements only available to medical doctors. Successful patients who have reached their weight loss and health goals describe their experience as life-changing and in some cases life-saving!
Your food plan may involve full meal replacement or partial meal replacement using some of your own food, specific to your metabolic needs. For some patients, an FDA approved medicine may be used to help decrease your appetite and increase your metabolism. Full or partial meal replacement is done with our convenient and tasty portion-controlled products stocked on site. They contain high-grade protein and are nutritionally balanced, so that you may safely reach your weight loss goal.
Your follow up appointments may be either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on your specific weight loss needs. At each appointment, which lasts approximately 30 minutes, we will monitor your health and progress, measuring vital signs while undergoing a brief exam. Any medical issues will be addressed at this time. Holistic Health Counseling on lifestyle changes, explanation of metabolism and how you body processes the food you eat, and general weight loss information will be discussed at this visit.

SEGMENTAL BODY COMPOSITION ANALYZER
We utilize BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) technology, which sends a safe, low-level electrical signal from footplate and hand electrodes through the body. BIA is quick and non-invasive, and one of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition, clinically comparable to DEXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) and hydrostatic (underwater) weighing.
Segmental readings for each leg, arm and trunk:
- Fat percentage
- Fat mass
- Fat rating
- Muscle mass
- Muscle mass rating
Whole Body Analysis
Our Body Composition Analyzer uses the very latest multi-frequency technology to record a comprehensive range of 31 measurements in just 20 seconds, from segmental fat and muscle mass to basal metabolic rate, visceral fat levels, metabolic age, phase angle and intra/extra cellular body water. Research has shown that using multi-frequency provides essential data on intracellular and extracellular water. This advanced technology shows greater accuracy when calculating body composition measurements.
