Medical Weight Loss Program
One of the most common issues amongst all humans is the struggle to maintain an ideal weight and body image. In fact, recent studies have discovered that 60% of American’s are overweight and 1/3 are obese. This has led to an epidemic of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, fatigue and sleep apnea all of which are potentially reversible. Our current healthcare system has not only not been able to make an improvement in these areas of health, but now our children are the first generation to be believed to not live as long as we will due to poor diet, lack of exercise and high levels of stress. There are certain things which must be done to help reverse this including accountability to make changes in lifestyle and provide support as well as education to learn how to eat, control stress and exercise the most effectively.

Our diet high is high in processed food which means high sugar, trans fats and lacking in essential nutrients for our body to efficiently function. Many people are increasing intolerant of certain foods especially wheat / gluten, dairy and corn and the advent of GMO products has only made this issue worse. Eating a diet rich in the rainbow of fruits and vegetables with meat being considered less prominent as a condiment is important with elimination of products containing wheat and gluten.
