ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Complete Clinics is proud to announce that patients in the Chicagoland area will now have access to the GenetoSlim weight management program, a first-of-its-kind physician supervised weight loss program that designs customized program based on the patients genes.

"The GenetoSlim program provides patients with more confidence that the diet and the exercise routine they are following is the right one for them," says Dr. Scott Morris, MD, the Medical Director at Complete Clinics, "Too many folks try diets like Atkin's or lemonade diets and have no idea how it will work for their body.  We seek to understand the patient's body and create a program that makes sense for them and which will lead to sustainable results."  

By sending a simple cheek swab to their federally approved partner lab, the medical experts at Complete Clinics can determine whether an individual will get the optimal results from a low carb diet or a low fat diet or something in the middle. Further, they can determine what types of exercises will have the best impact on weight loss.  Simply put, they are taking all the guess work out of losing weight.  

In a study conducted at Stanford University, participants that followed a genome-appropriate diet were able to lose more than twice the weight than if they followed a generic diet.

Terri McCreedy, a Professor at North Park University and Certified Nurse Practitioner with Complete Clinics states, "I am very excited to offer the advanced technology of GenetoSlim to our patients as this will further individualize our approach to successful long-term weight loss."

"If you want to lose weight and you're going to try to diet, wouldn't you want to know that you're following the optimal plan for your body?" says Mary Nowak, a wellness consultant at Complete Clinics.

The program officially launched last week on December 7th, 2010.  For more information visit the Company's website or call (877) 547-6567.
