We recommend controlled calorie, adequate protein, limited carbohydrate, and limited fat eating plans that are individualized for each person based on their preferences, health, and metabolism. We avoid overly restrictive diets or designate forbidden foods as these plans are more difficult to follow for the rest of your life, may cause too much hunger, may disrupt your metabolism or cause loss of muscle.
Our goal is to find a lifelong nutrition plan for you that not only meets the needs of your body but also fits into your life so that you can sustain this way of eating for the rest of your life. We want to help people break the habit of yo-yo dieting, lose the excess weight, and manage that weight forever. We try to start with something that you can be consistent with and build upon that success. Drastic diets that may cause rapid weight loss are more difficult to sustain especially when life events and stressors get us off track and we relapse back to old eating habits and regain. If you find yourself always back at the starting line, was that “rapid” weight loss plan all that rapid? We have nothing against rapid weight loss, but we genuinely believe that consistency is the key to keeping the weight off long term.
We can accommodate most persons with special dietary needs and preferences. There are no “forbidden” foods but there will likely be foods that you will need to limit in amount or frequency to achieve weight management goals. You can choose to incorporate some meal replacement products into your meal plans or may choose to eat only whole foods. The choice is yours.
