Our Program and Approach

Losing weight on your own can be difficult and frustrating. At Advanced Gastroenterology & Hepatology of greater Washington, we understand that; and our team is here to help every step of the way. We strive to provide personalized guidance and support to our patients throughout their weight loss journeys. Through education, lifestyle counseling and modification, the use of IV vitamins, minerals, and amino acid therapy, weight loss aids, nutritional guidance, and weight loss support; we empower our patients to succeed. We know that losing weight can require making difficult lifestyle adjustments and changes. Many of our patients come to AGH having tried many different programs without seeing real and long-term results. We’ve made it our mission to be different. This isn’t another diet – WE HATE DIETS. Diets are unrealistic, boring, and never last. Learning to live healthier isn’t about counting calories, using points, or following crazy rules. This program is designed to change the way you look and feel about food. Our goal is to jumpstart your healthy lifestyle and give you everything you need to create a positive relationship with food.

At AGH, we believe your weight loss is as individual and unique as you are, and that’s why we use the latest breakthrough technology combined with medicine to assist you in your journey to a healthier you.

Initial Consultation

You will meet with Dr. Farboud and his team to help us better understand your health history, current medical conditions, and review any prescription medications you may be taking. This allows us to understand your past challenges, obstacles, as well as your current motivation; and help us to outline a plan to help you reach your goals.

At this visit, we perform your first FIT3D scan…. The New Standard for Monitoring PROGRESS.

FIT3D Analysis

We get to know every inch of you… literally.

After your initial evaluation, each monthly session begins with a FIT3D Scan. Session by session, month by month, you will begin to see the changes in your body and your overall health as you get closer to reaching your goals.

We don’t just concentrate on pounds lost; we concentrate on all the changes happening within your body. By concentrating on wellness metrics like body shape, body composition (Measurements, Waist Circumference, Waist to Hip Ratio, Trunk to Leg Volume Ratio, Body Fat Percent, Weight, Fat Mass, Lean Mass, and Basal Metabolic Rate), as well as fitness level (Balance and Posture), we can better understand your individual needs, better track your progress, and more easily assist in helping you achieve your health and weight goals.


Accountability and engagement along with revisiting your goals on a consistent basis will help you to stay motivated. At AGH, we understand that every patient has different needs and we make every effort to accommodate your scheduling requirements and limitations. Our patients look forward to either their bi-monthly or monthly visits with our staff. We review your progress, explore the relationship between food and mood, and discuss strategies to help overcome emotional eating, boredom eating and any other obstacles that present a challenge. We then plan for the upcoming weeks and changes.

Nutritional Guidance and Support

At AGH, we offer a personalized and common sense approach to weight loss and nutrition. We want all of our patients to have a healthy relationship with food and in turn, have better overall health. We believe that nutritional education is the cornerstone to any successful sustainable weight loss. Our goal is to help you achieve a healthy diet utilizing portion control and meal planning techniques, healthy food choices, and simple preparation methods. This will not only help you achieve your weight loss goals, but will help you to develop the skills required to create healthy habits and maintain your healthy new weight once achieved; as well as create a healthy new lifestyle.

How It Works

Our goal is to jumpstart you to a healthy new lifestyle and give you everything you need to create a positive relationship with food. The Program is designed in 16 week sessions where patients learn so much more than just new eating habits and how to exercise appropriately. During those 16 weeks you will participate and engage in one on one sessions with your coach, and develop a better understanding of nutrition and mindful, healthy eating. The program includes meal plans and recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus grocery lists for all of your meals. You will receive monthly FIT3D Scans, IV vitamins, minerals and amino acid therapy, and weekly vitamin injections. You will develop the skills and confidence you need to finally build a healthier relationship with food. Although we may recommend some dietary products, we do not sell or offer any meal replacement products, as we want your weight loss journey to be sustainable in your everyday life. Get ready to feel energized, focused and excited! Stop making excuses, and start feeling confident in your own skin. Take back your health, and start creating a healthy lifestyle that leaves you feeling satisfied, not deprived.
