Here’s some info on our weight loss clinic.
Weight loss doesn’t happen just by running on the treadmill, nor is it simply cutting calories.
So, how to lose weight in a healthy way – and keep it off?
That involves doing the proper type of exercise for your body and eating the right foods for your body.
And on top of that, it’s often necessary to correct hormonal imbalances that contributed to your weight gain. And also, to improve the health of your digestive system.

I really like to treat weight loss, and the reason why is it is approached incorrectly in the general population.
It’s definitely not as easy as calories in/calories out, and exercise. A lot of people are struggling with weight loss resistance.
People are trying to lose weight while doing everything right. They eat healthy, exercise, but they gain weight, and end up getting blamed for it which is really unfortunate.
Hormones are definitely a big part of weight loss in women. If we don’t balance the hormones, there is no way you’ll be able to lose weight.
The way we approach it is we do pretty extensive hormonal testing, as well as basic health testing. We’ll run a 2-hour insulin-glucose challenge test, a basic panel of health such as a complete blood count as well as a digestive and liver panel.
We’ll go into hormones as well, and once we do that testing, I find we can gather information as to why that person has been unable to lose weight.

In terms of weight loss, there can be many causes for the inability to lose weight.
Doing an investigation in terms of underlying factors where you are diligent, you are compliant, you are doing what it takes and nothing is happening; these are definitely instances where you want to investigate further.
On the other hand, it’s being held accountable, having a support system, figuring out what works for you and what doesn’t work for you, and going from there; it’s going to be individualized.
Lastly, there’s also the idea of what you’re taking in, in terms of fuel and what you’re putting out in terms of energy; and this is just a balancing act.
