WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE WEIGHT LOSS?

Health is not defined by a number on a scale, however, many of our patients are seeking weight loss as a way to achieve optimal health. The truth is, sustainable weight loss is an outcome of robust metabolic health and not simply about reaching your goal weight. With you in mind, we can create a weight loss program that honors your unique bio-individuality, and improves your appearance AND your overall health. This is not a one-size-fits-all protocol. Our programs are results-oriented, science-based, and put an emphasis on long-term sustainability.

WHAT IS METABOLIC REPAIR?

Metabolic repair is needed when the physiological processes in your body that drive metabolism have been disrupted or damaged. By nature, the human body is designed to effectively burn calories, including fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. These processes do adapt over time, and your metabolism changes as a result. Metabolic repair aims to retrain your body to optimize metabolism,  taking into account lifestyle factors, hormone balance, thyroid function, inflammation, toxic burden, gut health, and blood sugar regulation. This is a key part of any effective weight loss program, and of maintaining long-term optimal health.

HOW MUCH DOES WEIGHT LOSS AND METABOLIC REPAIR COST?

Any effort to improve health require an investment of time, energy and money. Our recommendation is that you schedule a phone consultation as a first step. During this time, we can review the program goals, costs, and answer any questions you may have. In addition to traditional forms of payment such as cash or credit, we also have financing options through CareCredit® and Alphaeon®.

IS THE METABOLIC REPAIR WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM RIGHT FOR ME?

If you have tried everything to lose weight, have struggled with yo-yo dieting, have reached a plateau, or are simply at the point where you feel like giving up, this program is for you! Metabolic Repair for Sustainable Weight Loss is a culmination of Dr. Katherine’s experience in determining and treating the barriers to metabolic health and weight loss. Comprehensive diagnostic testing is done to pinpoint the reasons behind your frustration, then a program is carefully designed specifically for you. What’s included:

  • Lab testing to identify hormone or thyroid imbalance, inflammation, insulin resistance, and nutritional deficiencies
  • Body composition analysis with the InBody (fat vs. muscle, basal metabolic rate, etc)
  • Prescription medications as needed, including peptides, hormones, or thyroid support
  • Detox plan if needed
  • Personalized supplement regimen
  • Nutritional analysis and nutrition coaching
  • Lifestyle and health coaching

WHY WON'T JUST A MEAL PLAN HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS AND METABOLIC REPAIR?

Weight loss requires a negative energy (calorie) balance, however, cutting calories alone fails to treat the root causes. Any diet that cuts calories will likely produce temporary weight loss, but fails to address the metabolic dysfunction, as well as lifestyle and environmental factors that contribute to this disease state. Our program focuses on personalized approaches, but delivers results by fixing root issues related to hunger, satiety, metabolic dysfunction and hormonal imbalances that prevent permanent weight loss.
