New Weight Loss Center Tries To Make You Smart For Life

A New Kind of Weight Loss Center

weight loss centerAs the manager of the Smart for Life™, Michelle Davidson has brought the nationally franchised weight-loss program to Wichita.

It’s not just the 10 to 15 pounds the program claims to help customers lose every month that first caught Davidson’s attention; it’s also the way in which they lose it.

“I got really curious about this when I heard people were eating cookies and losing weight,” she said.

Those cookies are part of Smart for Life’s product line of “Smart” foods, which also includes shakes, soups and puddings.

Formulated with proteins and amino acids, the products are designed to provide natural hunger suppression throughout the day while still providing the necessary nutrients. Combined with a specified evening meal and daily water intake of 64 ounces, the products form the basis of the Smart for Life program, with exercise added as the weight comes off.

The Weight Loss Center Objective Is To Help You

For Davidson, the program’s commitment to overall customer health is what sets it apart.

Each client is given a customized plan at their weight loss center, created under the supervision of a physician like James Seberger, who works with Davidson to determine each person’s specific needs. “He has a passion for this, and that adds to the program,” Davidson said.

Davidson’s passion is customer service, which she said she now combines with her enjoyment of health and nutrition.

Originally from Smith Center, Davidson graduated from with a degree in human resource management.

Having lived in Wichita for 10 years, Davidson said she first became interested in Smart for Life after family members in California and Tennessee had success as franchisees. Started in 2002, Smart for Life has approximately 40 clinics in North America.

In opening her East Central location Nov. 5, Davidson brought the second such clinic to Kansas. The other is in Overland Park.

Although she hopes to eventually open a west Wichita location, Davidson said she is just concentrating on getting the word out about the center for now.

For her, Smart for Life clients need only follow the same advice she would give other prospective business owners.

“The biggest thing is to try,” she said. “You never know what can happen. If you have a passion and a dream, right or wrong, go for it.”

Smart For Life Invades Phoenix

Smart for Life invades Phoenix with 2 new Weight Management Centers in Scottsdale and Chandler

September 5, 2006

smartforlife invades phoenixBelieve it or not, there is a way to lose weight that requires you to eat cookies all day long. What’s more, clients following the program lose an average of 12 to 15 pounds per month. The secret – a specially formulated protein rich cookie recipe and a doctor’s supervision.

The cookies, which come in five flavors – Chocolate, Cinnamon-Oatmeal Raisin, Maine Blueberry, Pina Colada and organic Banana – are exclusively available at Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers, which have helped tens of thousands of people lose weight over the past several years.

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers has opened its first of 10 planned Arizona locations in Chandler at Rural and Ray. The Scottsdale center will open right after Thanksgiving and Glendale in February.

The cookies are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. They are also all-natural and have no chemical appetite suppressants or artificial sweeteners. Patients praise the diet for its excellent hunger control and rapid weight loss.

On joining the program, each client meets with a doctor. They receive a complete physical exam, which includes blood work, an EKG and a Body Composition Analysis. Also included in the program are vitamins, supplements, and medications if necessary.

While the program works to shed pounds, patients are taught how to eat healthy to maintain their target weight. “The goal of the center is to train our clients to eat right and only when they are hungry. We teach them to stop eating before they are full, and to adopt diets high in protein and fiber and low in carbs,” says Dr. David Klein, one of the owners of the Arizona clinics, and also Chief Operating Officer of the parent company.

According to Dr. Sasson Moulavi, Chief Medical Director of Smart for Life™ and a Board Certified Bariatric physician, “We medically supervise patients throughout the weight loss process and work closely with their primary care physician. We also address issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes, usually decreasing, and in some cases eliminating, their need for prescription medications as they lose weight.”

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers specialize in medically supervised weight loss and have locations throughout the United States and Canada with centers in cities as Beverly Hills, CA, Boca Raton, FL, Rochester, MI, and Boston, MA. The Smart for Life™ Weight Management program helps clients make positive changes in their lives by helping them reach and maintain their weight loss goals.
