To get started with Cornerstone Wellness, your physician will perform a simple, painless diagnostic test using a handheld device to determine your metabolic requirements and body composition.  Your test results, combined with your medical history, will be used to create a customized and flexible diet and exercise program tailored specifically to your goals and desires.  A Cornerstone Wellness Coach in your physician’s office will review the plan with you and meet with you regularly for support, feedback and behavioral education. Your coach will periodically re-test your body composition and metabolic rate to help you track your fat loss and adjust your plan as needed.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How much can I expect to lose?” style=”round” color=”turquoise” open=”true” custom_font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ custom_google_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C500%2C500italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:500%20bold%20regular%3A500%3Anormal” el_id=”1516738768079-38511c00-0817″ use_custom_heading=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1516738786831{margin-top: 20px !important;}”]With a properly managed diet and exercise program most people can expect to lose 1-2 lbs of fat or more per week.
