EGC Client Mayo Clinic Diet Featured on “Good Day New York”

One of the most frequent New Year’s resolutions is the goal to lose weight. Many people may begin a diet or exercise plan, but few maintain the regimen.

Dr. Acosta, medical advisor and obesity expert from Mayo Clinic, explained how the Mayo Clinic Diet stands out and above to hosts Bianca Peters and Rosanna Scotto. Based on scientifically proven evidence, this program adapts to choices made by individual members while also providing lifestyle changes to benefit their overall health via the “Lose It” phase, followed by the “Maintain It” phase. The dual goal of the Mayo Clinic Diet is to help members lose weight—and keep it off.

A related trend on the rise is the growing number of people who are opting to take weight-loss medications, such as Ozempic®. Dr Acosta stated that the Mayo Clinic Diet does indeed utilize these types of supplements but cautioned:

“There’s a lot of noise out there. There’s a lot of things that are controversial that we don’t know, so we wanted to create some reliable resources for patients…”

The “reliable resources” referred to by Dr. Acosta make up the new Mayo Clinic Diet Rx Companion Program, which advises members on the positive and negative components of weight-loss medications, along with specific tools to help avoid or minimize potential side effects.
