Absolutely! Our meal plans are designed to keep blood sugar stable, making it easier for your body to burn fat faster, and have more consistent energy throughout your day. We have had patients take their Hemoglobin A1c from 8.8 fasting glucose 188, down to 5.7 fasting glucose 77, within 3 months.

How healthy is your weight loss program?

Doing so helps the body process (i.e. water balancing, transporting nutrients), and prevents one from becoming easily fatigued by producing stamina and energy.

What is “body composition” vs. the traditional BMI?
Body composition measures lean body mass (Muscle, fluid, tissue and bones), healthy fat, and excess body fat to a hundredth of a pound. When you have this data you're able to take the “guessing” out of meal planning. Using your data we then calculate how many grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fats your body needs to not only fuel but burn excess body fat. BMI (Body mass index) unfortunately cannot accurately give you this data. Person X has a height of 5’8” and weighs 165 lbs. this patient has a BMI of 26, which is overweight on the BMI scale. Requested weight loss of 10 lbs. same patient does a body composition test measuring his percentage fat at 10.27% (16.8 lbs of fat).
What makes your weight loss more successful than other competitors?
Accountability! Education! Commitment! Don’t waste time and money unless you are fully committed to doing what it will take to be the next success story.
Do I have to exercise?
Yes, exercise, whether it is anaerobic or aerobic, is always recommended for a healthy lifestyle. Your coach can go in better detail of a workout routine that could work best for you.
