Physician Supervised Weight Loss

Weight-LossIt is common for people to regularly go on diets, hoping to lose 5 – 10 pounds. And sometimes were are successful. Sometimes we are not. And almost always the weight comes back.

That’s because in order to lose weight permanently, one must make lifestyle changes that eliminate the triggers that keep weight coming back. That is where a physician supervised program can help.

Our program goes beyond quick fixes and drugs and looks at where the majority of the extra weight is coming from. Our job is to determine where the visceral fat build up is occurring in the body, and make recommendations that will keep the weight off for good. That is the only way to keep the weight off for good, is by making proper lifestyle changes that reduce visceral fat buildup.

 

 
 

The Secret To Permanent Weight Loss

First of all, we must determine what is causing the extra weight. This can include:

  • Hormonal Issues
  • Adrenal Issues
  • Thyroid Issues
  • Neurotransmitter Issues

Next we must determine the best way to address the cause of your weight gain. By coming up with a customized plan that works with your mind and body, we can develop a program that will take off the weight and keep it off for good. This can include:

  1. Systemic imbalances
  2. Raw materials (pure water, natural food, vitamins and supplements)
  3. Exercise
  4. Emotions
  5. Restoration
 
 

Systematic Imbalances

When all the major systems are in balance, we not only feel good, but our adrenal glands are able to protect us, our hormones relay their messages smoothly, our digestive system can adequately nourish us, and we can efficiently get rid of or “detoxify” the things we don’t need. All of our systems depend on one another and if one is out of balance, the others can suffer, making weight loss a miserable uphill battle.

Discovering a systemic imbalance in the body may be the missing piece to your weight loss puzzle. Whether it’s hormonal imbalance, adrenal dysfunction, neurotransmitter, digestive, inflammatory, or detoxification system imbalance, correcting it is key to natural and lasting weight loss.

Raw Materials

A big myth is that losing weight comes down to counting calories and will power. But the reality is, if you eat 1,200 calories of junk versus 1,200 calories of balanced nutrition, your body will react differently — no matter how much you exercise. Making the right food choices part of your daily routine is going to make a huge difference to your wellness and your waistline. You can still enjoy the sugary snacks and salty delights, it’s all about portion control.

Exercise

Just as supplying your body with the right raw materials helps weight loss efforts and benefits overall health and longevity, so does exercise – but there’s no need to knock yourself dead to get results. Here’s an easy way to make exercise work: do something you love to do! By analyzing your daily routines and activities, we can help determine an easy exercise plan that can help maintain your weight.

Emotional Factors

We often subconsciously equate food with love or other emotions. We often find that many weight loss issues stem back to childhood relationships with food and the family members that served it. These emotions can change the neurochemistry of the brain if unhealthy connections between food and love are reinforced over the years. By addressing this, we can help make new connections that encourage healthier eating. 

Restoration

Restoration refers to keeping the mind and body as healthy as it can be so it can effectively burn fat and calories properly. We all lead stressful, busy lives, and this can trigger weight gain. Getting proper sleep allows to heal from the stress of the day. That’s because your adrenal glands are influenced by how well you sleep. In additions, setting goals and rewards for weight loss make the journey much easier, especially when the weight starts coming off. We have many ways to help restore the mind and body so that it can operate as efficiently as possible.

 

It’s Time For A Weight Loss Plan That Really Works

Permanent Weight loss is all about making the right choices and changes in your life that allow the body to operate efficiently. A physician supervised program that uses no drugs gives you the best chance at keeping the weight off for good.
