You are specifically urged and advised to seek the advice of a physician or medical professional before beginning any weight loss effort or regimen. OnPoint also specifically urges You to get regular medical checkups. Weight loss can create physical changes that should be medically monitored. Medical monitoring is especially important for anyone with a medical condition. OnPoint’s program is healthful, but it is not intended to treat any illness or disease or be a substitute for medical advice or treatment.

OnPoint’s Health Notice
If You are being treated for an illness, taking prescription medication, or following a therapeutic diet to treat a disease, it is critically important that You immediately share your OnPoint nutrition plan with your medical provider. Any modifications made to the plan by your medical provider should be followed. The OnPoint program supports a safe rate of weight loss, but if You are losing weight at a greater rate than designed, You must review the plan’s guidelines and adapt them, if necessary, to avoid rapid weight loss.

You are responsible and assume liability for managing your body’s physical and emotional needs and alerting both your healthcare provider and OnPoint if concerns arise.
