Weight Loss Program

The Lefebre and Burke Weight Loss and Laser Centre has assisted in the care of over 35,000 bariatric patients.

Our Motivation Program is the reason our patients are so successful losing weight and keeping it off. It consists of weekly handout materials, weight management books and CD’s and a computer program called the “Mental Weight” (MW) personality assessment which allows us to identify your challenges and customize a program that is just right for you. We will assesses your habits, motivation, self- image, stress and emotional control and help identify your psychological blocks that are, or could be causing your overweight problems.

Regardless of whether you are 10, 50, or 150 pounds overweight, we at the Lefebre and Burke Weight Loss and Laser Centre recognize that your overweight condition represents one of the most, if not THE MOST difficult challenge in your life. However with our help, we will make a good team and you will succeed!!

Our individualized nutrition plan options include: standard as well as protein supplemented diets-these special medical diets originated from the work done by Dr. George Blackburn from Harvard Medical School in Boston and result in safe, faster weight loss.
