Holland Clinic's Fat-Burn Heart Rate Calculator
100% Medical Weight Control Program












We offer an office-based and internet-based medical weight control program designed and
implimented by our medical director, Mark Holland MD. Doctor Holland began practicing bariatric
medicine (medical weight control) in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1991. In the 19 years since then
he has helped over ten thousand patients manage their weight. We practice 'evidence-based'
weight control, meaning that we do not rely upon untested theory or opinion but upon critically
analyzed published scientific research.

Getting Started as a New Patient

Patients who are new to our practice are given an extended first visit with doctor Holland at which
time he takes a medical history, performs a brief physical examination, explains in detail his
dietary and excercise program and, when medically indicated, may prescribe an anorectic
(weight-loss) medication.

Followup visits are usually monthly.

Treatment duration varies widely among patients depending upon degree of over-weight and health.

Our diet and exercise plans are not radical and are predicated upon the notion that long-term
weight loss requires long-term lifestyle change which can only be achieved through sensible and
liveable eating and activity. We do not sell food to our patients but instead work with them to make
good choices in the real world of supermarkets and restaurants.

Appetite control medications may be prescribed when patients carry enough excess weight to
have or be at risk for weight related illness. Appetite medications do indeed help many patients
lose weight but they are not miracles and they are not for everyone. Only Dr. Holland can decide,
in consulatation with you, whether such medication might be indicated in your care.

We define succesful weight loss in terms of health and risk. Most people do not have to be
'model-thin' to be healthy or at least healthier. Generally weight loss of 10% starting weight or more
significantly reduces one's risks for diabetes and high blood pressure. Your personal idea of
successful weight loss may involve more dramatic goals and insofar as those goal are
commensurate with good health we will work with you to achieve them.

If you take a few moments to browse our site you will find more detailed information within. Wether
you choose to seek care with us or not, we are glad for your interest and wish you the very best
health and happiness.
