Weight Loss Goes Interactive with Let’s Get It Off
Sacramento, CA -- When Dr. Ian Johnson, MD started Let's Get It Off, he set out to create a program that gave those struggling with weight loss direct access to professional medical assistance.
“They're at the grocery store or out to dinner, and don't know what to order—they can text us right then and there and we'll guide them to healthy choices.”
Weight loss programs often send people off with a plan and wish them well, said Johnson. There’s no human aspect to it—accountability, support, the ability to get questions answered from a medical expert. It can be a lonely journey, but Let’s Get It Off is about to change that. Our on-call text service allows people to connect with us anytime throughout the program. We’re there for them every step of the way.
The program also comes with an easy-to-use app that allows participants to book appointments, access medical records, refill prescriptions, and connect with doctors and staff.
“We want to modernize the entire approach to weight loss,” says Johnson, “People today live on their phones, so why not use this technology to help them lose weight too?”
With decades of medical experience behind him, along with a team of registered dieticians, physical therapists, personal trainers, and physicians, Johnson set out to create an inimitable weight loss program that tackled not only the physical challenges of losing weight, but the mental, emotional, and biological ones as well.
Another aspect of LGIO: a comprehensive medical examination. Hormonal imbalances, thyroid issues, nutritional deficiencies, and emotional connections to food all play a part in how we gain and lose weight, said Johnson. Weight loss programs often ignore these aspects. They can do a disservice by not addressing the problem as a whole. People may see results from quick-fix diet plans, but six months later they’re back where they started.
This multi-pronged approach includes weekly check-ins, personalized vitamin and supplement prescriptions proven to safely curb hunger, meal plans, a fitness program, and an online portal to monitor progress and serve as an ongoing resource. It’s transformative from the inside out.
"Our mission is to help people not only shed excess weight, but also eliminate the mental barriers so often intertwined with weight loss." Let’s Get It Off.
