"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, 'til it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."
- Harriet Beecher Stowe
Stubborn Weight Gain? Hard to Maintain Weight Goals? Yo Yo Diets? Weight Related Diseases?
You may be blessed with great genes. You may eat properly and exercise regularly. But for many people, losing weight and keeping it off is impossible to accomplish on their own! There are many reasons why people gain weight and most of the time it isn't just because they eat too much or don't exercise enough. That is why the Atlanta Medical Institute has several weight loss programs designed to help you meet your goals for losing weight, maintaining your weight, and reducing complications of weight related diseases. We use the best FDA approved Weight Loss Medication, Nutraceuticals, Supplements, Meal Plans, Lifestyle and Nutritional Counseling, Detoxification, and Stress Reduction to get results. We are a team of specially trained Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Weight Management Consultants who specialize in weight loss and the many chronic diseases or conditions that can complicate losing and maintaining your weight.
At AMI, we use cutting edge technology and the latest weight loss techniques on the market today. Let's face it, weight loss isn't a one-size-fits-all process. That's why all of our programs are physician supervised and custom tailored to every individual. The Atlanta Medical Institute team feels that being overweight or obese is a true medical condition - similar to having high blood pressure or asthma and should be given the attention it deserves in a specialty clinic like ours. At AMI, we listen. We understand what you are going through and have the tools that make a difference. See how AMI can help.
There are several important steps you take as a patient at Atlanta Medical institute. Based upon lab tests, physical exams, questionnaires, and your specific goals, our physicians will prescribe the exact program your body needs. Some of the programs we provide are:
- Weight Loss Injections
- Hormone Replacement
- Medically Supervised Appetite Suppressants
- Metabolic Calorie Count
- Body Fat Analysis
- Nutraceuticals (Natural)
- Behavior Coaching
As men and women age, their hormone production declines. This decline creates hormonal imbalances resulting in negative side effects, which can contribute to weight gain.
AT AMI, we us both HRT and BHRT to address the unique needs of individuals. Both HRT and BHRT are proven safe and effective and can be very important to the process of losing weight and can assist you in slowing, stopping and even reversing many of the negative effects of weight gain. BHRT is a natural hormonal therapy that uses plant-derived hormones identical in chemical and molecular structure to ones produced by the human body.
Both HRT and BHRT should always be administered by a physician who is skilled in hormone replacement therapy. Contact us today to see how you can experience our safe and effective treatments from our medical staff.
Every day, our bodies are bombarded with hundreds of stressors. When we are healthy, our bodies can fight them off; but over time what do you think happens to our bodies' ability to fight off stress? Do you think that stress can have a direct impact on weight gain, aging, and personal health? The answer is "YES"!
It is commonly accepted that stress, either realized or often consciously unrealized, can suppress the immune system and potentially manifest itself into serious illness over time. Weight gain, aging, and other signs are our bodies' way of communicating with us. The subconscious mind thinks, our emotions react and our bodies listen. After decades of research, we believe that certain types of stress can be linked to most human illnesses, so identifying the stress give us a road-map to alert you as to what could likely be happening inside your body.
Like many medical professionals, we believe that proper identification and elimination of stress can have a major positive effect on the human body, and allow our natural healing and detoxifying organs to do their job at maximum efficiency. Until now, there has never been a technology that could effectively measure and reduce stress in the human body on a quantum bio-electrical level. Using bio-electronic technology, our trained professionals can guide you through the first steps toward addressing high risk issues before illness begins.
Fitness and Nutrition Counseling
We're all different and from a nutritional standpoint, this difference is called biochemical individuality. This implies that no single exercise and diet plan is right for everyone. For example, one person may do well with a more traditional higher carbohydrate diet, another may thrive on Zone type meals which are heavier in protein and fat, and a third will feel energized and clear headed following a raw foods diet. So at AMI, our goal isn't to impose a belief system or have you follow a particular diet or exercise plan; rather, our goal is to teach you the basics of a healthy nutrition and exercise program so that your understanding helps you make the right choices each day. To help determine what type of foods and exercises may work best for you, AMI use highly trained specialists in the science of exercise and nutrition. Our professionals help identify which foods and food combinations are right for your unique metabolism, and which exercise programs will accomplish the results you are looking for. By tending to your specific metabolic needs while applying the basic principles of good nutrition and exercise, you will maintain proper weight, feel energized, and improve your overall health and quality of life!
At AMI, our professional health coaches are trained in program development, education, motivation, and guidance to meet your needs as an individual.
The goal of our programs is to offer a simple yet effective proactive plan that anyone can implement with ease and minimal time commitments. We focus on the most important 20% that yield the maximum 80% results.

Our programs support the client's current medical protocol and results can be measured and tracked by our clients and their doctor.
