We know that overly restrictive meal plans and diets don’t work. In fact, many of our patients come to us and realize that they have nutritional deficiencies due to the failed ways and methods they have tried losing weight.
We base our nutritional program on your own chemistry. This is the way your body metabolizes nutrients. The majority of our patients have metabolic issues and abnormalities that we can clearly diagnose, based upon our comprehensive lab analysis.
In weekly private nutritional counseling sessions, we will guide you on what to eat to reverse these metabolic abnormalities; the goal is to have your metabolism functioning optimally again so you can lose weight and most importantly, keep it off.
Weight problems can take a toll on those affected. It is through education and self-discovery that changes are made, and our approach helps you do this by releasing positivity and growth. Our experience shows that three components make up the most effective formula for healing your body and lifestyle: knowledge, skills and support. Private counseling sessions with our experienced dietitians and medical staff will help you recognize and unlearn destructive habits and self-defeating behaviors. Practical, healthy behaviors will become second nature to you. As part of our program, we are also here to help you boost your vitality through proper exercise and self-care. We work with you to create a comprehensive lifestyle program of healthy self-care that works within the details and intricacies of your life. There are no blanket recommendations to just exercise more, eat less and simply manage your stress.
Our total approach to weight loss ensures that we provide you real help and real care, not empty promises. Our medical staff will carefully evaluate your current health status, and monitor conditions sensitive to the effects of diet and exercise. We take special care of those patients who suffer from diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, and hormonal imbalance. Our approach is built around your specific needs and conditions, and is not based on theoretical averages of other people’s experiences. You will be cared for by a medical staff who are qualified to address your needs. This is incorporated into a program that helps you achieve the healthy body and the healthy life you’ve always dreamed of.
