Weight Loss Q&A

What is supervised holistic weight loss?

Supervised holistic weight loss helps you burn fat and live a healthier lifestyle. Unlike fad diets, which only lead to temporary weight loss, it focuses on lifestyle changes that result in lasting progress.

Specifically, it teaches you about the relationship between your weight and lifestyle. It also addresses underlying medical conditions that affect your ability to lose weight.

What can I expect at a professional  weight loss consultation?

At The Family Wellness Center, a professional  weight loss consultation begins with a review of your medical history and a discussion of your goals. 

Your provider asks about your lifestyle, including your stress levels, the type of diet you eat, and if you take any medications or supplements. Answer these questions honestly. Your provider won’t judge you and your answers help determine the best treatment approach.

Next, your provider completes a thorough nutritional evaluation. This includes an in-depth computerized history and a Tanita body analyzer. These screenings help identify issues that might affect your weight, such as vitamin, parasitic, and hormone imbalances.

What does medically supervised weight loss involve?

The Family Wellness Center team tailors medically supervised weight loss to each person’s needs. They might suggest:

Nutritional guidance

Nutritional guidance educates you about foods and supplements that can support your weight loss journey. 

It teaches you how to replace unhealthy snacks and meals with more nutrient-dense options. A balanced diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins in the right ratios is typically the first step to success.

Whole body vibration

Whole body vibration (WBV) is a painless, outpatient procedure that detoxifies the body and burns calories quickly. During treatment, you stand  on a machine with a vibrating platform. 

The platform shakes (or vibrates) rapidly, causing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times a second. This results in improved bone strength, stronger muscles, whole body detoxification, and accelerated weight loss.

Self-mastery technology

Many people who struggle to lose weight have difficulty managing food cravings. When you eat junk food, your brain releases the feel-good chemical dopamine. This is a normal neurological reaction, but once you associate pleasure with specific foods, it's easier to be tempted by them.

Self-mastery technology uses flashing lights and soothing sounds to retrain your brain. It’s a safe and effective way to break bad habits, without hypnosis or subliminal messages. It also allows your brain and body to relax and lowers fat causing stress hormones.
