Tampa Weight Loss Clinic

At Hermann Wellness, we believe good nutrition is key to achieving many health goals, including weight loss, relief from allergy symptoms and removing food sensitivities. Dr. Anne Hermann is a board certified internal medicine physician who is also board certified as a physician nutrition specialist. Dr. Hermann has been helping patients lose weight in Tampa and St. Petersburg for over 10 years. At our practice, we tailor a plan that is fit for you by offering you a choice from one of our four primary diet plans. Because we are a medical office, we can prescribe an appetite suppressant or vitamin therapy as well.
*Individual results may vary


1. Meal Planning

Meal planning is a good option for people who like to cook and prepare their own meals without the use of meal replacement products.


2. Optifast Full Meal Replacement

Optifast is the only medical meal replacement approved for people to live off for three months or more.

3. Optifast with One Meal per Day

Some of our patients choose to do Optifast and eat one meal per day.


4. Anti-Inflammatory or Detox Diet

The Detox Diet is Dr. Hermann’s preferred diet for people who suspect that some of the foods that they eat are making them feel ill.

Which Diet Is Best for Me?

Hermann Wellness will help you determine the diet that is best for your nutritional needs, lifestyle and weight loss goals. One of the most important aspects of selecting a diet is choosing one to which you can commit. For example, if you really like to cook, Optifast probably isn’t your best option. Alternatively, if you want to take all of the guesswork out of meal planning and calorie counting, Optifast is probably right for you. *Individual results may vary

Our team uses their special nutrition skills to plan diets that are tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Before prescribing a diet, we will perform a comprehensive medical exam to ensure that your hormones, thyroid levels, adrenal function and overall health are not affecting your ability to lose weight. We will also measure your BMI and body fat percentage.

If our team does find a hormone or nutritional imbalance, we will address that in conjunction with diet and meal planning. We can also prescribe an appetite suppressant or fat burner shots if needed, but these are optional. Note that half of our patients do not use medication or shots.


HCG Diet

Some of our patients have heard about the HCG Diet and are curious about how it works. We would be happy to provide more information about the diet; please contact us for details.
