DietDemand has been providing weight loss care for almost a decade. We previously maintained two dozen physical locations and the success rate was in the low 60%. When telemedicine was offered, along with multiple, vital consultations with the weight loss doctors, nutritionists, nurses, care managers, your expected, success rate climbs to 98%. This only happens when all consults scheduled are kept and the personalized diet protocol is followed. Each consult has a purpose and is unique. You will receive an automated call reminder 2 days before each consult. Please keep these 4 consults to increase your chances for success. If you hit a plateau (weight loss slow down), call/email as there is always a reason why this could happen. You will be required to submit a food journal of what you consumed the past few days.
With this knowledge, I agree and consent to these consults and realize if I do not complete 4 consults within a 6 week period, my success rate could drop as much as 36%.
