This question doesn’t have an easy answer! The best weight loss program for you is, ultimately, the one you can live with long term. No weight loss program will work if you have a hard time following it.
The most effective programs are comprehensive: they address nutrition, activity, and your behavior, and they follow medical guidelines. Ideally, you want a program that helps you lose weight and maintain your weight loss. GOM offers a comprehensive program that is delivered remotely and in real-time, and includes a team of experts to help you navigate the challenges that may arise in your weight loss journey..
Beyond that, it’s important to look for a weight loss program that provides tailored solutions based on your unique physiology, weight history, any medical conditions you have, and your lifestyle. You will also want to find a weight loss program that is safe and has scientific support showing their approach is effective.
In general, look for programs that allow you to eat a wide variety of foods, including fruit and vegetables; complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and beans; lean proteins; and healthy fats such as avocados, nuts, and oils like canola oil, and olive oil, and peanut oil. Depending on your needs, your health care provider may recommend different ratios of these foods.
Very low-calorie diets, such as those based on meal replacements shakes, should be done with a doctor’s approval and medical supervision.
One important aspect that’s often overlooked is that as you lose weight, your needs change. You’ll need to adjust your diet, activity, and other parts of your plan as you go to continue losing weight or to maintain weight loss. Many people get frustrated and blame themselves when they stop losing weight or regain, when the answer may simply be that they need to adjust their strategy.

We’ll consider your medical history, your lifestyle, and your dietary preferences. We’ll use digital monitoring and coaching sessions to track your progress.
