“Enliven your spirit”®
If you’re like me and have spent thousands of dollars on “diets” that gave you a meal plan and sent you on your way then you may be very skeptical about paying for another so-called weight loss program. I don’t blame you. The pattern is usually that you start off really well, full of hope, meal plan in hand and ready to tackle the supermarket vegetable aisle while speeding past the baked goods. I know I’ve been there many times.
However ask yourself the following questions: did any of your previous programs include a personalized fitness assessment and twice weekly visits with a personal trainer, a 60 minute intake with an obesity medicine specialist (who also is a post-op bariatric patient and board certified addiction psychiatrist), a 60 minute intake with a PhD level registered dietitian, meal replacements for the duration of the program, and access to a gym?
If the answer is no then we welcome you enroll in the Enliven Your Spirit® Program!
Who can benefit from the Enliven Your Spirit Program?:
The Enliven Your Spirit Program is a 4 week program and is a mini-version of our full 16 week program. It is great for those who would like to try our program out, pre- or post-bariatric patients or for those who just need a boost in their wellness efforts.
What’s included during the 4 weeks?
Even though The Enliven Your Spirit Program is 4 weeks you will still receive an excellent, comprehensive program tailored to your fitness and nutritional needs. The program includes the following:
- a 60 minute intake with an obesity medicine specialist
- 60 minute intake with our registered dietitian
- Exclusive and comprehensive online weight management university program with HD video, MP3 audio files, excellent nutrition/exercise lectures, 100s of pages of downloadable content

- Weekly weigh-ins and full body composition analysis on intake and at the end of the program

What happens after the 4 weeks?:
Whatever your goals are we’re here to help you meet them. If you’d like to continue in your wellness program then you can transition to the Weight No More® Program. If you’d like to continue with certain services such as additional visits with our registered dietitian, personal trainer, obesity medicine specialist, etc. you can do that too. We can tailor a program that meets your needs.
Are weight loss medications included in this program?
As for all of our programs each client receives a comprehensive intake evaluation by Dr. Scurry. If it’s determined after this assessment which includes a medical, psychiatric, and laboratory testing that weight loss medications are clinically indicated and appropriate then these may be prescribed during the Enliven Your Spirit Program.
Do you use B12 or HCG injections during the Enliven Your Spirit Program?
Dr. Scurry is a member of the Obesity Medicine Association and The Obesity Society supports their position that HCG is an ineffective treatment for obesity. To read the position statement by the Obesity Medicine Association click here and to read the position statement from the Obesity Society please click here. B12 supplementation either orally or by injection is appropriate for those with a low or low normal B12 level. If it’s clinically indicated to recommend B12 injections then we can suggest that your primary care provide those to you.
How does the Enliven Your Spirit Program compare to other weight loss programs?
First and foremost, our personalized programs focus on fat loss, pinpointing your nutritional needs, optimizing your sleep, and decreasing your stress. Keep in mind that it’s adipose tissue, especially around the belly, that leads to chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Numerous studies have shown that a decrease of 5-10% of weight (read fat loss) can improve one’s health dramatically. You will feel more energetic, more relaxed and sleep better with our programs.
What is the cost of the program?
The cost of the program is $699.99. We also accept flexible spending accounts, major credit cards, and provide you with a superbill for reimbursement from your insurance company.
