NWI Business Ins and Outs: A Better Weigh, Eyecare Express, Steel City Bakery, Verizon open | Business

Many people aren’t happy with their weight but struggle to slim down.

A Better Weigh, Inc. hopes to get people back on track to their ideal weights in Schererville, promising “faster, safer, and lasting results” and the opportunity to “lose weight in a more effective way.”

The weight-loss firm opened at 146 West Lincoln Highway in Lincoln Ridge Plaza on U.S. 30 in Schererville.

Nurse Chanay Walton started the business back in 2009 after giving birth and finding it difficult to get back to her former shape despite a strict regiment of diet and exercise.

She drew from her medical experience, lost 42 pounds in six weeks and developed the idea of starting a business of her own to help others to lose weight in a more effective way.

“At A Better Weigh, we see the person, not just a number on the scale. Our compassionate team of physicians and nurses treats every patient with the dignity and respect they deserve. If you’ve struggled with weight loss in the past, your metabolism may be to blame,” the business said on its website. “Metabolism regulates your ability to shed stubborn pounds and can sabotage your efforts when it feels starved or overworked. Many of our patients have endured the monumental challenges of traditional weight loss and turned to A Better Weigh in search of a more practical solution. We help you to find success through our use of FDA-approved medications and lipotropic formulas, which allow the body to switch over from storage to fat burning mode.”

A Better Weigh also has locations in Beverly, Tinley Park and Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood.

“We are always thrilled to celebrate patient achievements as you reach your most meaningful milestones, whether that be slipping into an old pair of jeans from high school or flaunting a set of stunning before and after photos. If you’re considering medical weight loss, but are unsure if it’s the right choice for you, we welcome you to speak with our team,” the business said on its website. “Our mission is to equip you with the guidance and information you need to achieve your greatest quality of life.”

It offers a number of programs, including appetite suppressants, mineral supplements, vitamin B12 injections, consultation, fat burners,  amino acids, lipotropic injections, and fat burners.

The business is open from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
