Weight Loss

What is effective, long-lasting weight loss?

Effective, long-lasting weight loss starts with finding foods that are right for your body, giving your cells all of the nourishment they need to thrive, and engaging in an exercise regimen that works for you. At Alternative Wellness Clinic, the friendly team spends time with you to learn about your goals and challenges. Then they’ll design a weight-loss program that helps you get healthier as you shed pounds.

How do you help me find the right way to lose weight?

The care team evaluates your needs by talking to you about food, your lifestyle, and your budget. You may be asked to keep a food diary to see if any foods you normally eat trigger symptoms. They may also recommend an elimination diet that removes foods that tend to cause inflammation and weight gain.

Based on the evaluation, you’ll be told which whole foods and vegetables are best for your body and that you enjoy, too. They also advise avoiding foods that aren’t healthy, such as processed foods, sugar, and trans fats. You’re encouraged to eat as many fresh vegetables and low-glycemic fruits as you want, including:

  • Leafy greens (spinach, lettuce)
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Berries
  • Melons

They may also recommend low-glycemic starches such as sweet potatoes, as well as high-quality protein and healthy fats.

Do I need supplements when I’m losing weight?

In today’s busy world, it’s hard to keep up with your body’s nutritional needs. Food quality has declined over the last century, too, making it even more imperative to supplement your diet with high-quality vitamins and minerals.

The Alternative Wellness Clinic nutritional wellness team recommend Standard ProcessⓇ vitamins and minerals, which are made from whole foods grown in healthy, organic soils by independent American farmers. These supplements are only available through a health and wellness practitioner. 

Since the 1920s, Standard Process supplements have helped women, men, and children get the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong. You may also be prescribed a Standard Process kit that resolves health issues, including inflammation or high blood sugar.
