Finally, A Weight Loss Program That Works
When it comes to healing injuries or alleviating chronic conditions, managing your weight is often the simplest – and least invasive – solution. We understand, however, that losing weight can be a struggle, especially for patients who have tried the old maxim of eating less and exercising more only to see little or no results.
Positive Image Weight Management
The Albano Clinic partners with Positive Image Weight Management, a medically-developed weight loss protocol that has been evolving for over 20 years. Positive Image is a physician-supervised weight loss program that emphasizes optimizing your body and living a healthier lifestyle. Under the guidance of your personal weight loss coach, this program balances protein levels while minimizing fat and carbohydrates.
If followed precisely, Dr. Albano, our weight loss physician, and his team have found this scientifically-valid program extremely effective, as your body has no choice but to burn fat as fuel. Women lose an average of 2.5 lbs. per week and men lose an average of 3.5 lbs. per week.

Having all the pressure of all those pounds off of my knees and off of my back, it’s wonderful. It was such an easy program for me to stick to and the weight seemingly just fell off.~Tierney Silver Thorne
Personal Coaching Makes All The Difference
If you have always struggled to stick to a diet or tend to gain back all the weight you lost – and then some – then it’s time to get some support. Weight loss coaches keep you accountable and help you build habits that support long-term success.
Our weight loss coaches can help you achieve your goals and maintain your results – for good.
Positive Image Weight Management is a physician-supervised weight loss program with a medically-designed protocol containing two key components: weight loss and lifestyle education to help you maintain results.
According to weight loss doctor and co-founder of Ideal Protein Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, “The cause of many weight issues in modern society is insulin dysfunction.” This dysfunction is a direct result of a diet high in saturated fats and sugars – a diet very much in line with the typical American diet.
To put it simply, an overproduction of insulin may lead to constant sugar cravings and weight gain.
Digging a little deeper, while one of insulin’s primary functions is to regulate blood sugar levels, it also is the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat into fat cells. It then “locks” the fat into the fat cell, preventing fat from being burned off for energy.
Once your body depletes all of your usable protein and carbohydrates for energy – and with your fat locked away – your blood sugar drops, creating a sugar craving. The vicious cycle begins again, and your excess insulin works to store more fat.
The Ideal Protein weight loss program works by stopping this harmful cycle in its tracks.
