Cornerstone Wellness Fat Loss Program:

      When you team up with your doctor,

      Everything Changes for Better…..

  • Support and guidance from your physician
  • Maximizes fat loss and preserve muscle
  • Reduces hunger and cravings while maintaining energy levels
  • Proven, safe and sensible lifestyle approach for long-term results

             How does it work?

           Cornerstone Wellness is a medically        supervised weight management program available only through physicians.  The program offers a safe and sensible approach to help you gradually lose excess body fat while preserving muscle (lean body mass).  You’ll follow a moderately-reduced calorie plan with healthy, wholesome everyday foods from your grocery store, coupled with delicious, high-protein meal replacement shakes provided by your physician.  The program also includes clinically proven nutraceutical supplements specifically formulated to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce hunger cravings and stimulate fat loss.
To get started with Cornerstone Wellness, your physician will perform a simple, painless diagnostic test using a handheld device to determine your metabolic requirements and body composition.  Your test results, combined with your medical history, will be used to create a customized and flexible diet and exercise program tailored specifically to your goals and desires.  A Cornerstone Wellness Coach in your physician’s office will review the plan with you and meet with you regularly for support, feedback and behavioral education. Your coach will periodically re-test your body composition and metabolic rate to help you track your fat loss and adjust your plan as needed.

How much can I expect to lose?

With a properly managed diet and exercise program most people can expect to lose 1-2 lbs of fat or more per week. Although it is difficult to predict how much weight you will lose, the goal of Cornerstone Wellness Program is to maximize fat loss and preserve lean body mass.  We work closely with you to make sure the weight you are losing is, in fact, fat and that you are maintaining optimal health and energy levels throughout the program.

Will I be hungry?

The Cornerstone Wellness high-protein meal replacement formula and nutritional supplements are designed to specifically help decrease hunger cravings while maximizing fat loss.  Combined with a balanced meal plan, most people find the program satisfying and easy to follow.

What makes this program different than all the others?

It’s safe, easy and scientifically sound.  The Cornerstone Wellness Program is designed and managed by physicians so you can be confident that you’re doing what’s best for your health and well-being.  The program uses state-of-the-art, proven technology to track and monitor your progress and give you useful and motivational feedback.  

Measurement, prescription and feedback through advanced technology...

Accurate data is essential to the practice of medicine and this data is gleaned from a marriage of history, examination and the use of technological tools such as laboratory, imaging and electrodiagnostic (EKG, EEG, EMG) testing. It is a well-known fact that patients underestimate their caloric intake by 40% and overestimate their caloric expenditure by 40% making patients weight loss history all but useless. In addition, body weight and BMI are a primitive and inaccurate measurement of the risk factor of concern ie excess adiposity. It is clear therefore, that to accurately diagnose and treat this disease, physicians must be able to accurately measure and follow body fat, lean body mass, BMR, calories in and calories out. It is to these ends that Cornerstone Wellness developed the most accurate, convenient and user-friendly tools to diagnose and treat this deadly disease.
No other wellness/weight loss company has more advanced cutting edge technology than Cornerstone Wellness. From the most accurate and only Internet driven body composition device to the only FDA cleared calorie tracker to a totally interactive meal-planning program, calorie mapping and resistance exercise library…Cornerstone Wellness has it all. All these tools allow physicians to follow patients’ progress more closely, with far more accountability from patients (to their physicians and themselves) as well as reducing the drudgery and boredom of the weight loss process.

  • Quick, easy and accurate measurement of body composition (body fat and lean body mass) with results instantly uploaded to Web-base record for physician and patient review.

Web Tools:


The Cornerstone Wellness Website provides a powerful and effective suite of tools for managing your managing your patients' weight loss efforts.

  • Tracks and reports macronutrient consumption with alerts according to customized goals set by BMR testing and diet selection (e.g. Zone, Protein Power, Atkins, Mediteranean, Cornerstone Wellnes, etc.)
  • Helps patients monitor the change in their body composition (fat and lean body mass) over time as a result of their diet and exercise.
  • A huge library of resistance movements, to aid in maintenance of muscle. Patient simply clicks on particular muscle group of a muscular "avatar" and a list of exercises with step-by-step photos and instructions pop-up
  • Also includes sporting and ADL activities that determine calories burned per unit time
  • A calorie mapping tool where patient enters zip code and finds starting point on street map or satellite map, clicks out a path to walk, run or bike, enters time elapsed and based on their personal factors it determines calories burned
  • Extensive personal journal function to help with goal setting and attainment
  • Patients are given username/password to access their data from home
  • Physician login provides access to administrative reporting as well as patient records

Body composition Analysis:

The Cornerstone Wellness program utilizes a handheld body composition analyzer (BC IV) to assess patient body composition and estimate BMR. The BC IV is a Class II FDA-cleared bioelectrical impedance medical device that has a documented accuracy of+0.5% on average when compared against whole body dual x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Algorithims for men, women and children have been developed and validated by the USC Department of Biokinesiology.
To take a measurement, patients simply grip the BC IV for 6 seconds and results are instantly uploaded, via the internet, to theCornerstone Wellness Website for review by patients and physicians. The test results, coupled with patient goals, are used to create customized meal plans. Periodic re-tests can be performed and uploaded to track patient improvement and make dietary modifications as needed.
