1. They have lost muscle mass as they lost weight, instead of just fat. The average weight loss yields 50% fat and 50% muscle loss. The end result of people losing muscle mass is to reduce their body’s calorie-burning engine, which means, once they are off their weight loss program, they will have to eat less food than when they first started their program because their body is now burning less calories. This makes it harder to maintain the desired weight.
2. They have NOT learned how to make correct changes to their unhealthy food habits and therefore go back to eating foods that are NOT “weight friendly”.
3. They have NOT addressed the underlying functional health imbalances that will prevent them from maintaining their weight loss over time. It is often these imbalances that caused the problem in the first place
4. They have NOT pinpointed any food intolerances they may have, that can bring back the weight they lost in the form of water retention, or inflammation that can lead to further health problems.
5. They have NOT felt good during the weight loss phase having hunger, cravings, low energy, or mental fatigue which stops them from meeting their weight loss goals and therefore being disappointed and discouraged with trying to lose weight.
This medically supervised program starts by taking a 294-questionnaire assessment. This will provide a wellness Index to the patient and a more detailed status of 15 functional health conditions that may be affecting your metabolism and ability to maintain a healthy vibrant weight.
Thereafter, a ketogenic and elimination diet is started where the body is bio-chemically set to use excess fat for fuel while protecting muscle mass. To ensure people feel great while on their diet, a nutritional tasty protein “shot” is consumed between meals. This is a food-based program that is easy to follow and sustainable.
By addressing functional imbalances such as nutritional deficiencies and chronic conditions, the root causes are addressed, and long-term weight loss is achieved.
In this manner, people feel great with NO hunger or cravings while having great energy and a positive mental state so as to stay on the program until weight loss goals are met. Patients often lose up to 7Ibs in 7 days of eating whole foods when they first start, and thereafter typically lose between 1-2Ibs a week of fat losing a significant amount of inches.
Most important, people learn correct food habits to support weight loss over time and healthy blood sugar. In a medically supervised study over ten weeks, the average patient outcomes for the key health markers listed below were:
27.3 Lbs. Lost
18.6 Inches lost (7 body measurements)
30 Points Blood Pressure Reduction
20.4% Cholesterol Reduction
40% Triglycerides Reduction
41 Points Fasting Blood Sugar Reduction
