SLIM TLC is a comprehensive lifestyle and weight management program provided through TLC Family Health. It has two meanings, the most important of which is becoming SLIM through Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes. SLIM also stands for the optional use of a Short-term, Low-dose, Intermittent, Mid-day appetite suppressant – for those who desire and qualify. We also provide you with the education, professional guidance, support, and accountability most people need to achieve long-term health and weight loss success. Here is our formula:
The SLIM TLC program is based on the latest, scientifically-proven principles of nutrition, fitness, and long-term weight loss, and includes:
Individualized guidance, provided through an initial (40-minute) one-on-one visit, followed by once-monthly 20-minute visits (extra visits: $50/20 minutes)
Twice-monthly 45-minute group visits for learning, support and troubleshooting
Initial labs (lipid panel, comprehensive metabolic panel, complete blood count, thyroid stimulating hormone, hemoglobin A1c), then follow-up labs every three months (lipid panel, comprehensive metabolic panel, and hemoglobin A1c)
An optional appetite suppressant (phentermine), prescribed the SLIM TLC way. Prescriptions are only provided during one-on one visits and if it is deemed safe, if at least one group visit has been attended within the previous month, and if continued efforts are being made at learning SLIM TLC principles and making lifestyle changes (tracked by special goal-setting and record-keeping tools).
Lifetime subscription to SLIM TLC Online, which includes our Program Materials, “TLC University,” Troubleshooting Guide, and KidTLC.
Tools for simple, effective goal-setting, habit modification, and breaking addictions.
Optional visits with our Integrative Nutrition Health Coach ($60/50 minutes)
There are no special foods or supplements to buy – participants eat real food, following our nutrition guidelines (The 4:1 Rule and Nutrition Star), incorporated into their normal lives (a crucial key to long-term success).
The cost of the optional phentermine prescription should be quite low since it is generic, and you receive only ten 37.5 mg tablets/month (which are broken in half).
Gold and Platinum members of TLC Family Health receive 50% off program costs; Silver members receive 25% off (if interested, simply send us a message through the Patient Portal)
Simply select your desired option below. Next, download the SLIM TLC Initial Patient Packet. This contains a brief questionnaire, a Food and Exercise Log (which, in order to make the most out of our first visit, must be kept for at least three days prior to your initial visit), and a simple contract (you only need to sign this if you desire the optional phentermine prescription). Then, book a 40-minute appointment with Dr. Cluff for your initial SLIM TLC visit (at which you will receive the SLIM TLC Program Materials). See you thin!
