WEight Management

 

Perhaps you feel stuck from trying to diet on and off and maybe you’ve even added some additional weight from trying to lose weight.  Losing weight is hard and often frustrating—indeed, researchers have shown that at least 95% fail—and this frustration intensifies if your doctor has told you to lose weight for medical reasons.


All this begs the question: Why do so many fail? Mostly because they don't know how to properly fuel their own bodies.   One of the biggest and most common problems is that dieters restrict calories too steeply. When underfed, the body responds by breaking down muscle tissue and hoarding fat. This may seem counterintuitive, but it's your body's way to survive famine. Please watch our video for a visual representation of how this works.

Using sophisticated medical technology, our nutritionist can see what's happening in your body and can tailor a plan for your body's needs. To help you reach metabolic fitness we use two non-invasive assessment tests: 1) Metabolic Testing lets you know the right amount of calories to eat without losing muscle mass and lowering your metabolic rate (the rate at which you burn calories), and 2) Body Composition Analysis shows how much of your body is muscle vs. fat and will show exactly how much fat you have lost at each appointment. 


After the initial assessment, our nutritionist will monitor and track these numbers closely and develop a customized plan tailored to your particular body, enabling you to lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way. These are expensive and highly sophisticated machines that, when used together, enable our nutritionist to help you more powerfully than others. Because we can see what is happening in your body (and each body is very different!), we know how to help you reach your optimal health.


Please give us a call, we are happy to chat with you about this in greater detail or to set up an appointment. For a more detailed discussion, please see our blog post on weight management.
