The 2023 Ultimate Guide to a Doctor's Rapid Weight Loss Program


Rapid weight loss programs have significant advantages over slow and steady ones.

Mainstream information in the media is hypocritical on this subject and lacks context when discussing rapid weight loss programs. Most online articles about fast weight loss programs relate to fad diets and ridiculous things like cabbage-only diets.

Rapid weight loss programs being harmful to you is a myth. If you want to read more about this topic's myths, check out our article here.

This is not an article about cabbage-only diets or juicing-only diets. For context, rapid weight loss programs discussed in this article refer to a doctor-based fast weight loss program.

In this article, we will cover rapid weight loss programs comprehensively.

What is a rapid weight loss program?

Specialized Treatment Weight Loss Plan

According to medical journals, "a rapid weight loss program is a specialized treatment diet plan designed by doctors to help people lose weight quickly, coupled with a holistic lifestyle intervention. It typically involves eating fewer calories, exercising more, and making other significant lifestyle changes, such as reducing stress and getting adequate sleep."

The figure shown illustrates where rapid weight loss programs usually fall under.

A proper doctor-based rapid weight loss program is a specialized treatment plan to treat obesity or to kickstart weight loss because do-it-yourself and community management online programs didn't work.

It is the last resort attempted before lap-band surgery.

It is evident in our clinics because the common comment is, "we've tried everything, and nothing has worked."

Many types of rapid weight loss programs are available, including:

1. Low-carb diets: Low-carb diets involve limiting carbohydrates while increasing protein and fat intake

2. Calorie-restricted diets involve eating fewer calories than recommended for your age and activity level.

3. Meal replacement plans: Meal replacement plans involve replacing one or two meals daily with a pre-packaged shake or bar containing all the necessary nutrients.

4. Fasting protocols involve periods where no food is consumed.

Rapid weight loss programs, when done correctly, can be very effective in helping people reach their goals. In the next section, we'll understand what "when done correctly" means.

Who rapid weight loss is for, and who is it not for?

Again, the rapid weight loss program we refer to in this article is a rapid weight loss program provided by doctors.

A doctor's rapid weight loss program:

  • Is a treatment plan for patients looking to lose more than 2 to 5 pounds weekly over several weeks

  • Is most suitable for those who are overweight or obese and have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher

  • Is recommended for people with certain health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease

When done correctly, rapid weight loss can lead to significant health benefits such as:

  • Improved blood sugar levels

  • Lower cholesterol levels and

  • Reduced risk of developing chronic diseases

A rapid weight loss program isn't suitable for everyone. The more weight they need to lose, the more appropriate it is. That said, it's not for everyone, and your patient needs to be serious enough to commit to it.

Rapid weight loss is not for people with eating disorders. The last thing you want to do is unknowingly contribute to preexisting problems. Please check out this disclaimer sheet on who should not do the SOZA Weight Loss program.

Not all weight loss programs are created equal; we know this, so we constantly update our program with the latest studies on obesity.

Why do some people need to lose weight fast?

Your patient most likely needs to lose weight "yesterday." This is because many patients come to us after their primary care physician asks them to lose weight.

They need to lose weight because it is necessary to get healthier quicker. These people are very frustrated, and possibly every time they go to their primary care physician, it's the same old story. They cannot lose weight; worse, they seem to have gained weight!

Many are embarrassed to return to their primary care physician for fear of experiencing weight stigma.

They need an intervention.

Modest weight loss can have significant health benefits by shedding the “killer fat,” aka visceral fat, first. It will add years to your patient's life.

Visceral fat is the fat around the waist and the fat that surrounds and even infiltrates our organs. See the picture below.

Studies have shown that if you are overweight or obese, losing just 5% of your body weight will:

  • Reduce your blood pressure and levels of blood fats (triglycerides), significantly reducing your risk of heart attack or stroke.​

  • Lower your risk of getting cancer. Carrying too much fat in the body releases hormones and inflammatory agents that boost cancer. ​

  • Sleep better and reduce sleep apnea. When we put on weight, it goes around the belly and neck. ​

  • Cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In one extensive study, people with pre-diabetes (raised blood sugars, not yet in the diabetic range) who lost over 5% of their body weight were 58% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who didn’t.​

  • Boost your sex drive. Hormonal changes are improved, and there is increased blood flow to the sex organs. ​

Imagine your patients losing 10-20% of their body weight, as many patients do on our program. The fat is drained from their liver and pancreas, and their body is restored to health. ​

If your patient loses 15 pounds in a month on the SOZA program, which they will, you've provided them substantial health benefits.

You've pretty much helped save their life!

Why a doctor's rapid weight loss is better than do-it-yourself

It is important to remember that this program is an intensive specialized treatment that isn't for everyone.

Recent studies have shown that rapid weight loss diets can be more effective than the traditional “slow and steady” advice for those suitable for this type of diet.

These studies have demonstrated that rapid weight loss diets are safe and more effective when followed correctly than slow-paced alternatives. They also provide insight into what happens when obesity is allowed to progress unchecked.

At our organization, it's important to us that we act on the best available evidence - which is why we recommend rapid weight loss diets over other approaches. This approach is the best way to achieve successful long-term outcomes for our clients.

There are several reasons why rapid weight loss diets can be more effective than the traditional slow and steady approach:

  • Rapid weight loss diets can lead to more rapid health results, as they focus on dramatic changes in diet and lifestyle, which significantly impact body weight.

  • Studies have also shown that this diet is associated with tremendous long-term success, as it helps people develop healthier habits that are easier to stick with in the long term.

  • This diet may help reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors by increasing fat oxidation and improving metabolic health.

  • Finally, rapid weight loss diets can provide an extra layer of motivation for those looking to make lifestyle changes, as the sense of accomplishment from seeing quick results can be very motivating.

Are there any downsides to rapid weight loss programs?

Yes, rapid weight loss programs have several potential downsides when done wrongly. This is why we constantly mention "when done properly."

For instance, a cabbage-only diet, juicing, and eating turnips are all terrible ways to lose weight. Some other specialized treatment rapid weight loss programs offered by holistic professionals are also questionable.

An incorrect approach can lead to ineffective results and may not offer the desired outcomes. It can lead to:

  • Hopelessness and discouragement for those attempting to lose weight, as their efforts seem in vain

  • Physical harm through damage to the body or insufficient nutrient intake. Unsafe techniques can also lead to short-term health complications such as fatigue, low energy levels, and digestive problems.

  • Fostering unhealthy habits that are difficult to break and disrupt natural metabolic processes.

We've seen this all the time, unfortunately. Some people come to us after doing some crazy or ridiculous program.

Is yo-yo dieting bad for your patient?

In short, no!

Losing weight at any given time provides long-term health benefits.

It was a hotly debated topic at one point, but new research shows that yo-yo dieters who diet and lose weight here and there have it right.

According to Oxford University professor Susan Jebb, there is considerable evidence that short-term diets can effectively reduce the risk of weight-related diabetes, even if the lost weight is gained back later.

Regarding yo-yo dieting, Professor Jebb clarified that although it has been criticized for health risks, there is no evidence backing this up. Thus, she suggested having an ambitious long-term goal but highlighted that losing a small amount of weight can bring substantial health benefits, even if it isn't permanent.

Prof Jebb cited a long-term study in which overweight individuals lost weight and were monitored for 15 years to check their progress. Even if the individuals returned to their initial weight, they still had a reduced risk of developing diabetes, unlike those in the control group, who remained at a constant weight throughout.

The professor stated that it doesn't matter how heavy one is, but rather what length of time they have been at this weight - as this has metabolic benefits even if the results are not permanent.

Should you offer a rapid weight loss program in your practice?

Yes, we think so!

A rapid weight loss program should be at least one of your weight loss services, if not the leading weight loss service.

When people search for a doctor's weight loss program, they are most likely at their breaking point and need to see and experience results.

  • It is a program that delivers results quickly, allowing your patients to lose weight fast

  • It motivates them to acquire new lifestyle habits and to help maintain their new healthy weight

  • Well-analyzed and prominent clinical studies support it

  • It includes professional guidance and advice throughout the process

  • It allows for ongoing monitoring of your patient's progress
