Nutrition Programs & Weight Loss
 

“Men and Women Are Discovering An Amazing Breakthrough In Safely Losing Weight, Without Starving Yourself, Fad Diets, Medications, Liposuction, Or Gastric Bypass!” If you are sick and tired of trying to lose weight and dealing with constant food cravings and always reaching for sweets, then it’s time to throw aside those fad diets and begin to get serious about losing weight once and for all!

This approach is one of the safest and most effective methods for treating weight issues and food cravings (including the pesky cravings for sugar, sweets and high fat foods). It’s called the Ultimate Fat-Loss Program and what it does is very safely cause your body to burn fat and helps to overcome your cravings for food and even sugary sweets! 

  • It is all-natural. This means that you don’t have to worry about any potentially dangerous side-effects. Herbal stimulants and medications may give temporary weight loss, but let's face it - they can have some unwanted side-effects.
  • You get the benefit of very effective weight loss advice without needing to go to your doctor or the pharmacy for prescriptions for medications. If you have ever considered trying any of those things and you were worried about the potential side-effects, then you have every right to be worried. This fat-burning process is safe, effective and you'll see it working very quickly. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Of course for the best results, you must be committed to losing your weight and be willing to follow the super-easy instructions.
  • You won’t receive unnecessary treatments. Of course everybody has a different rate of recovery, so there is no way of knowing exactly how long it will take to reach your goal weight. Most people see results after just one week, some people need more time (and some people need lab testing to determine the underlying issues in their weight problem) – it all depends on various factors such as the severity of your weight issue and also how long you’ve had your weight problem. Other factors are your commitment to losing weight, and you must be willing to get to the underlying issues causing your weight problem. (Some of these causative factors are unbalanced thyroid hormones, unbalanced female hormones, autoimmune conditions, various food allergies, unbalanced neurotransmitters, blood sugar imbalances - related to the hormone insulin, cortisol hormone imbalances, oxygen deliverability issues, gastrointestinal problems, and the list goes on.) Can you tell we really work to get to the underlying issues? It's what we do and it's what makes this program so different from anything you have tried in the past!

 

The biggest factor that makes this program so different is that there is a big focus on the hormonal causes of your weight problem.

We work very hard to balance your hormones so that you can burn fat, lose weight, increase energy and as a result have an enhanced self-esteem.

Our goal with my patients is to get them to lose the weight as quickly as possible and then support them to stay healthy and vibrant. Long-term success is our goal. (Of course, losing weight too quickly is not good either, so we take your past medical history into account and craft a health-building program with realistic goals & expectations. Again, this is NOT a fad diet or starvation diet).

Number One: We do everything in our power to help you. We provide one-on-one health coaching. During this coaching, we teach you about what to do and what not to do.

Number Two: The second aspect of our super-successful weight loss program is what we call "Fat-Burning Metabolics". What that means is that we take everything into account that may be causing your weight loss problem - in fact, we leave no stone unturned in that endeavor. We work very closely with you to balance your hormones, including your thyroid hormones. (Note: you may have been told your thyroid is "normal", but that very well may not be the case and may be the reason why you still have trouble losing weight.) In addition, we look at fat-burning hormones and fat-storing hormones. When your body produces more fat-storing hormones than fat-burning hormones, this results in your body holding on to fat and being resistant to various weight loss attempts.

Number Three: The third aspect is known as "Functional Endocrinology", and what it is the delicate relationship among your endocrine/hormonal glands. 

Let's briefly discuss each organ/gland individually, but keep in mind they have a role with each other. 

Thyroid: Thyroid hormone controls your metabolic rate; it runs how fast or how slow your body works. If thyroid function is too slow, your body will run too slow - leading to difficult weight loss and low energy. (Sound familiar?) Other symptoms include depression, insomnia, constipation, dry skin, low sex drive, etc. All are symptoms of a low-functioning thyroid gland.

And the thyroid connects functionally to the other organs/glands. Let's explore those connections right now.

Liver: The thyroid hormone converts to active thyroid hormone in the liver. The liver also detoxifies the body of many toxins, and many women with weight issues have trouble detoxifying. With that in mind, sometimes the liver needs to be addressed in order for weight loss to occur.

Gonads: In the female, these are the ovaries. The ovaries produce estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is a fat-STORING hormone, so if you have too much estrogen, then losing weight will be difficult, no matter how much you exercise and diet. And progesterone is a relaxing hormone, so if progesterone is low, you may be tense and more prone to stress-related snacking. Can you now see how the ovaries can play a big role in your weight loss?

Gonads: In the male, these are the testes. The testes produce testosterone. And testosterone NEEDS to be in balance with all the other hormones. Balance is the key to health and well-being, and the key to experiencing healthy weight loss.

Pancreas: This is the gland largely responsible for blood sugar balance. What I find is that many people with weight issues have concurrent blood sugar imbalance. If blood sugar is too high, it converts to fat. And, blood sugar issues cause problems with too much insulin, which is a fat-STORING hormone. If insulin is high, you'll never lose weight.

Pituitary: This is a gland, located in the brain, which has an effect not only on the thyroid, but on the female hormone system as well. Bottom line is, these glands work hand-in-hand with each other, and all the glands must be supported nutritionally. 

Hypothalamus: Think of the hypothalamus as our "weight loss set point". When the hypothalamus is working properly, our weight is "set" at the proper weight, but when that gland's function goes out of whack, the set-point gets set too high, and we stay at a higher weight. With proper nutritional supplements and diet, the hypothalamus can be re-set to a more healthy weight. I bet you can't wait!

Adrenals: The adrenal glands play a huge role in your weight. The adrenals are the stress glands, and when do you tend to crave food the most? When you're feeling stressed, and so healthy adrenals are essential when trying to lose weight. The adrenals also play a big role in sleep patterns, and energy levels.

Can you now see that other weight loss programs have not worked for you because they did not address these endocrine connections? Can you now see what sets my program apart from all the others and how I can make the bold claims that I do.

Why Haven't I Heard Of This Cutting-Edge Approach To Burning Fat And Losing Weight?

One of the biggest reasons you may not have heard about this weight loss approach is that very few doctors are able to provide this level of treatment and coaching. And, very few doctors are trained in the functional approach to weight loss. In fact, there are only a few hundred doctors throughout the United States that use this type of weight loss coaching in the care of their patients. And as far as I'm aware, I am the only doctor here in Stark County that blends the knowledge of many disciplines into such a highly effective fat loss program. Because this program is "multi-disciplinary"...it is highly effective and works long-term for many people. (Of course, long-term success is dependent on many factors; it my job to coach you along the way...it is your job to follow through on the advice).
