We are a first for Australia.
We’re different from the alternatives because our experienced and qualified Doctors take the guesswork out of your weight loss. At your appointment, our Doctors will work out how many calories you need to eat to lose weight or reach your health goals. Our chefs will then calorie and portion control the Doc’s range of menus (which can be viewed online) based on the calorie intake the Doctor has prescribed.
That’s why we need to book you in to see our Doctors at either:
The Carina Medical & Specialist Centre, 396 Stanley Rd, Carina QLD 4152
Our Doctors will also arrange for biometric measurements and other necessary tests to ensure that you reach your goals sooner.#
Your meal plan includes 5 Days of breakfast, lunch and dinner of fresh, wholesome and nutrient packed, healthy meals delivered straight to you each week on Tuesday or Wednesdays depending on your location.* On the other two days of the week, you get to practice what you have been seeing, eating and living on the previous 5 days. This ensures that your changes are sustainable. Learning these techniques will set you up for success in the future to help ensure you maintain the weight loss. We have found that encouraging the changing of behaviours in this way and getting you to do it on your own for at least 2 days a week has significantly contributed to the success of our patients losing the fat and keeping it off in the long term.
Please note that as our chefs aim to provide you with variety, your calories per day may slightly vary given the nature of the ingredients. However, we aim to ensure that over the 5 Days you receive your approximate calorie intake as recommended by your Doctor.
To help us track and manage your progress in the healthiest way possible our doctors recommend you check in with them every fortnight at our headquarters for the duration of your program to ensure that you reach your weight-loss or health goals. It’s also a great way for you to keep a record of your results and track your achievements!
You can choose to enjoy these meals for as long as many weeks as you need depending on your weight and lifestyle goals. There is no minimum term.
In terms of cost, each meal is $10 and you can choose to collect it from any one of our local pick up destinations or have it delivered to you. For deliveries within Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast delivery will occur on Tuesdays. Ipswich and Toowoomba orders are delivered on Wednesdays.*
