Virtual or Online Consults 

Weight optimization can be a challenging endeavor for those who have tried several popular diets. Some may have achieved their goals in changing their diet, others may have found certain programs to be too boxed in and go back to old ways.

This is a typical pattern often seen when someone “goes on a diet.” This statement implies that these changes are temporary, have a beginning and an end and the program is simply to be endured until the desired goal is achieved.

Not exactly optimization.

Food and nutrition should be an enjoyable  part of your life and have a lasting impact on your health, and longevity. Examining preferred foods and eating patterns can offer some insight into the types of foods one likes so that we can work together to improve the quality and nutritional value of the foods consumed as well as introducing new foods and healthy ways of preparing them. We can learn how to make better choices and allow for some of our favorites. 

If you are confused about which nutritional choices work best for you, we can offer some guidance based on your current health issues, history and goals.

Why do obesity statistics continue to increase?

Some ideas: We eat fewer whole foods and more processed foods, more inflammatory foods, and we’re taking in more environmental toxins. Many of us work sedentary jobs and don’t get enough exercise. We’re not eating enough foods rich in probiotics and prebiotics that support gut health.

At the same time, these are simple answers to a complicated problem. Like many diseases, obesity is multifactorial. We look at the whole person to determine the underlying reasons you might be overweight. Even if it “runs in your family,” genetics are far from the whole story when it comes to obesity.

Instead, examples to look at are toxins, metabolic, hormonal, environmental, pathogens and co-infections, gastrointestinal issues, mineral/vitamin ratios and deficiencies, mold mycotoxins, and other factors that might be keeping one from losing weight. While that sounds complex, the underlying approach for weight loss is really simple: Take out the bad and add in the good.

The Solution

Research shows: Weight loss provides significant health and economic benefits. You look better, feel more confident, reduce your risk for nearly every disease including type 2 diabetes, and increase longevity. As long as you do it intelligently and healthily, there is no downside to becoming your ideal weight.

Every client is different. We take the time to really get to know the client, understand why obesity became a problem, and create a customized protocol based on  budget, preferences, and particular needs. That takes time and effort, but this comprehensive approach not only helps you reach your goal weight but maintain it and great health for your life time.
