With so many rules about what to eat and when to work out, losing weight can seem like an overwhelming task, but if you have the right support, you will start to see results. At Nebraska Weight Management Institute, the licensed health care professionals take the guesswork out of weight management. Using safe, effective, and scientifically proven weight loss programs, the team at Nebraska Weight Management Institute in Lincoln and Omaha, NE, helps patients not only lose weight but also keep it off over the course of their lifetimes.

Nebraska Weight Management Institute offers different treatment plans based on different needs. The health care professionals will customize your weight loss plan according to your medical history and your weight loss goals. As a medical weight loss center, the treatment focus is always on the whole person, not just on a specific diet. With more than 20 years of experience, the health care team at Nebraska Weight Management Institute includes a director of wellness and a director of dietetics. 

One program that leads to long-term weight management at Nebraska Weight Management Institute is a nonsurgical approach called OPTIFAST®. The average weight loss among patients in the OPTIFAST program is 50 pounds. But weight loss isn’t the only benefit; many patients also experience a decrease in blood pressure and cholesterol. Plus, two years after completing the program, 40% of patients keep off more than half of the weight they lost.

In addition to weight loss programs, Nebraska Weight Management Institute offers metabolic rate testing and consultations with a registered dietitian. Whether you are looking for weight loss tips or a customized diet plan, the professionals at the Nebraska Weight Management Institute will provide you with the guidance and support to reach your long-term weight management goals.

For more information about the medically supervised weight loss programs available at Nebraska Weight Management Institute, visit the website or call the Lincoln clinic at (402) 483-4770 or the Omaha clinic at (402) 399-9386.
