A comprehensive lab (blood) work-up is first analyzed to reveal any physiologic barriers to natural weight loss. The labs help identify if the weight gain is in part a result of an imbalance of hormones such as thyroid, insulin, testosterone, growth hormone, and/or cortisol. Metablolic testing through indirect calorimetry is assessed to determine how many calories you actually need to sustain bodily activities. This result is compared with your total caloric intake from your diet diary and your energy expenditure from your exercise. Weight gain and weight loss is ultimately an imbalance of caloric intake and caloric expenditure. To help you get control, one or two medications can be prescribed to suppress appetite and increase metabolism. The plan includes a weekly B-12 shot, a weekly weigh-in, medication, EKG, diet diary, metabolic testing, and accountability. Accountability is strongly encouraged. The client is expected to put forth effort to change their lifestyle that will promote health through better eating and exercise. The client should NOT expect to lose weight by simply taking a pill and/or eating a pre-packaged meal plan. The core of the program is to correct the physiologic deficiencies through medications, nutriceuticals, and correct lifestyle flaws through better eating habits, and exercise.
