On your patient journey, there are three game changers that make the most difference in weight loss and regaining energy.
We patch holes
This means that if the lab markers indicate you are low in iron, we make sure you are getting enough iron, B12 or whatever deficiency we find. We do this with food and sometimes with nutritional supplements. Iron and B vitamins are needed to make thyroid hormones that, in turn, will make sure you have a healthy metabolism. They are also necessary for digestion and accessing nutrients from the food you eat. If you are iron deficient, you can’t transport oxygen. Try holding your breath. That is what your cells are doing when you don’t have enough iron.
We clean up the “yuck”
That means we remove anything that is bogging you down, making you sick or inflamed. This would include bacteria, viruses, food sensitivities, toxins and food that would rather destroy you than nourish you.
Eating one serving of protein and two servings of vegetables every three to four hours in a 12 hour or less time frame. This signature method ensures you are:
- Getting enough protein for cellular and muscle strength and recovery.
- You are consuming plenty of energy boosting vegetables full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and protective phytonutrients, you are eating in a way that doesn’t spike your insulin (your fat storing hormone)
- You are comfortably using intermittent fasting as a tool for cellular clean up and digestion.
- Healthy carbs, fats and fruit are included so you don’t feel deprived and you are never hungry. This method ensures you will never need to diet again.
This is the most empowering part because we make a plan that doesn’t just include the “what” to do but also the “how”.
