Our natural weight loss clinic utilizes a mild ketogenic diet to help you lose weight and teaches you proper food portion sizes, so you're eating for ongoing health. We utilize the Transformations Weight Loss Program to put your metabolism in mild ketosis so that weight loss occurs with ease.
Our Fort Collins medical weight loss program is doctor-supervised and includes physical assessment and laboratory testing. This helps us determine the root cause of your weight gain, gain an understanding of your metabolism, and uncover any conditions that might prevent you from participating in our natural weight loss clinic. This is important, because many people try to lose weight by changing their diet, but a large part of weight loss success has more to do with metabolism than calorie counting!
Each person metabolizes fat a little differently when on a ketogenic diet, so you need a weight management program individually designed with your body in mind.
This program is NOT the latest gimmick, dangerous drug or injection. Instead, we’re using the Transformations Weight Loss Program because it has an incredible safety and efficacy record as close to 1,000,000 patients have used this program successfully since it was developed 15 years ago.
Typically, I’m very skeptical of weight loss pills, diets and the like because they aren’t what you’d call sustainable, meaning people rarely keep the weight off after losing it.
This program will support you to lose weight and you won’t have to buy special foods, bars, shakes or pills. You’ll eat real whole foods that you purchase yourself, at any grocery store. Ideally, you'll feel more energetic and not suffer the ups and downs of blood sugar fluctuations when you're eating a ketogenic diet. This is how we're supposed to feel, when we're bio-chemically set to burn belly fat and not muscle mass.
When the body burns fat, instead of simple carbs (supplied by the standard American diet of excess simple carbohydrates!) you can start to lose stored energy, or body fat. Fat is nature's fuel for us; when we burn fat primarily, instead of carbs our blood sugar stays stable for hours and this leads to decreased cravings.
Each person's rate of weight loss is different while taking part in our natural weight loss clinic; however we've had a lot of success with our patients meeting their weight loss goals over the years.
Most importantly, you’ll learn correct food habits so as to not only maintain your weight loss over time, but to also be in control of your blood sugar to prevent diet-related health complications. The program is very structured and simple to follow which means you will not have to keep calling with questions.
Weekly appointments are part of the program. These are typically 15-minute sessions where you have a chance to check in with our doctors, and we'll monitor your body composition each week to track your success. We measure overall weight - which includes fat, muscle and water mass so we can ensure you're on the right path. We do this because we want to track not just 'weight' but body composition - how much muscle, fat and water make up your overall composition. It's important to make sure you're losing fat, and not muscle or water mass.
At our natural weight loss clinic, we’ll also be able to pinpoint the main systems of your body that may be holding your health back, and show you how to eat everything to keep your weight off for lifetime success.
This is done using the WICO® Test at no extra cost (a $150 value). It will evaluate 15 functional health conditions based on your symptoms. Once you complete the online questionnaire, you will come to our office to have a complimentary consultation with me to determine if there are other health issues affecting your ability to lose weight and feel energetic.
This is critical, as maintaining a healthy body composition is perhaps one of the most important steps you can take to be preventative and wellness oriented with your health.
The cost is a function of how much weight you want to lose; however it is very affordable as people save between 30-50% of what they typically spend on food. This could mean just the food savings alone could cover the cost of the program.
To get started, call our natural weight loss clinic let us know you want to see us for the TRANSFORMATIONS program. We’ll email you the paperwork and code to take the self-administered WICO Test, get your first visit scheduled, and begin the program.
We'll review your health at our comprehensive new patient visit and typically we get a set of lab work to make sure nothing else is going on with you systemically that would prevent you from having success on the program.
Once at the office we will do a body comp test, weigh and measure you and provide instructions on how the program works. You will leave with the kit and start immediately with foods already in your kitchen. If you are ready to lose belly fat, look younger, learn how to NEVER become a diabetic, and feel better than you have in years, call the office ASAP!
