Fast Track Program

The Fast Track program offered at The Miriam Hospital’s Center for Weight and Wellness is designed for individuals who want to jump-start their weight loss. Seeing quick results – dropping 10 pounds or more in 30 days – gives you the motivation to continue your weight loss journey.

The program, which uses modified fasting (meal replacement supplements and one daily meal of solid food) lays the foundation for patients to see results quickly, while preparing them for a structured transition to an all-food eating plan.

After completing Fast Track, participants transition to either our LEAN program or Your Choice, Your Weigh. Both programs provide additional resources that address the importance of adopting proper eating habits and achieving a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle. Each program also offers a variety of dietary options based on your particular needs.
