About our Weight Loss Center in MD

At Figure Savers Weight Loss & Diet Center, we will teach you how to lose weight and keep it off for good. The Ideal Protein diet is designed around the process of ketosis, and our Columbia weight loss center has a team of specialized coaches to assist you on your journey to a happier, healthier life. Making the change to a healthier lifestyle is not easy, and our weight loss clinic in Maryland is here to guide you every step of the way.

When it comes to weight loss, there are four critical aspects of ketosis that our weight loss center in MD wants you to understand. This knowledge will help you maintain a balanced weight after dieting.

  1. One of the most significant hazards of dieting is losing muscle mass along with fat.
  2. Muscle is required to burn calories. Therefore, when you decrease your muscle mass through dieting, you will have less muscle to burn calories after you return to your regular eating patterns. In other words, you will regain your lost weight. According to the National Institutes of Health, dieters regain almost all of their lost weight within five years after dieting.
  3. If you start dieting again, you will lose even more muscle. This will further inhibit your ability to burn calories.
  4. With our weight loss method, clients go into ketosis, a metabolic state where the body will retain its valuable muscle mass and burn fat almost exclusively. When you return to a regular eating pattern, you then have the muscle mass it takes to maintain your weight.

The Ideal Protein weight loss plan is a physician-designed protocol that is designed to burn fat while sustaining muscle mass. Attend our introductory seminar to learn more about this process.
