The second Chicagoland Medi-Weightloss Clinics will open in Naperville on Monday, Aug. 22, at 1879 Bay Scott Circle, Naperville.
The public is invited to an open house from 4 - 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25. Tours of the spa-like facility will take place, and free body composition assessments are offered. Refreshments and delicious hors d’oeuvres will be served throughout the event.
At 5 p.m. and again at 6:30 p.m., Bill Pienias, managing partner of both the Hinsdale and Naperville clinics, will give a short presentation titled, “Living a Happy, Healthy Life.”
Medi-Weightloss Clinics is a three-phase physician-supervised program for weight loss. It is not a liquid diet, and no food is provided. Patients eat real food purchased in the grocery store.
Phase One is acute weight loss which begins with a 90-minute complete medical examination with a physician, including blood panel and EKG, along with the details of an individualized diet based on goals, current condition, and medical history. Throughout this phase, the patient makes weekly visits. Phase Two is short-term maintenance that begins as a patient approaches goal weight. Phase Three is wellness with monthly consultations and continued analysis of the metabolism.
The program was designed by experts in medicine and public health, nutrition, fitness, motivation, and education.
“Some people come in discouraged and defeated having tried so many unsuccessful diets,” Pienias said. “It is extremely rewarding to see them reclaim pride and confidence during their weight loss journey.”
No wonder Pienias enjoys the patients’ success; the former football coach is all about motivation. His career veered into the financial industry, and he quickly rose to the CEO level. In all endeavors, Pienias’ strong personal mission was - and remains - to make a difference in people’s lives.
“Our program gives the advice, direction and accountability one needs to reach goal weight and transition to a healthier lifestyle,” Pienias said. “Our patients lose up to 5-10 pounds the first week and up to 20 pounds the first month.”
Again, the public is invited to attend the free presentation at either time or just drop in to enjoy the ambiance of the open house and sample some of the mouth-watering morsels from their patients' favorite recipes.
