Most of us are consuming too many processed foods, refined sugars, and starches such as grains, sweets, snack foods, etc . In order to regulate blood sugar, our pancreas secretes insulin to metabolize sugar (glucose). We don’t realize when carbohydrates are eaten, they are broken down into glucose, and whatever is not metabolized for energy is converted and stored as fat. When too many carbohydrates are consumed, the pancreas has to work too hard, resulting in insulin resistance. This leads to a drop in blood sugar which causes cravings for sugar and carbohydrates, beginning a vicious cycle of overeating, fat storage, and weight gain.
The Healthy Weigh Now’s easy 3 Level Weight Loss Plan stops the cycle, promotes weight loss by using the fat your body has stored, and burns that fat for energy. Weekly meetings with our trained coaches guide you on the journey to a healthy weight. After weight loss, we are committed to providing you knowledge and guidance to maintain your weight loss for a life time. Our program is medically supervised by board certified cardiologists who work closely with clients that have medical conditions. Whether you have 10 pounds or over 100 pounds to lose, THE HEALTHY WEIGH NOW is your key to success.
Top 5 Questions From Our Clients:
1. Why do I need to attend the introductory seminar?
We feel it is imperative that our clients understand the science behind our gluten-free, low carbohydrate weight loss program, including why we gain weight, why we have difficulty losing weight and maintaining weight loss. One of our supervising, Board Certified Cardiologists will present this information in an informal, open forum. Our coaching staff is on hand to describe a typical day on our plan, and to offer advice from personal
and professional experience. Clients have the opportunity to sample some of our favorite meal replacement supplements and snacks, with ample time for questions. An informed client is a successful client!
2. How is this diet different from others on the market?
“Diets” don’t work. Clients have to be ready for a lifestyle change. If you follow our gluten-free, low-carb, low calorie plan, you will lose weight, but if you go back to your old habits once you reach your goal, you will gain back the weight. We offer one-on-one, weekly, face-to-face coaching with our trained staff, which is medically supervised. We offer a 3-level weight loss plan with a lifetime of coaching for a one-time fee. Once you are a client, you are always a client, from weight loss to transition and into a low-carb maintenance lifestyle.
3. What does “medically supervised” mean?
Our Medical Director is a Board-Certified Cardiologist, who is available to our staff for questions or consultation if medical needs arise. He personally calls clients’ physicians to discuss our program and ensure clients are approved to participate. We currently have two nurses on staff who work closely with the physicians and other coaches, as well.
4. What happens during the coaching visits?
The weekly coaching visits are a time of education, accountability, planning and progress review. You will receive a body composition analysis (weight, BMI, body fat %, lean body mass, hydration), and body measurements (chest, arm, waist, hips, thigh), as well as encouragement, tips for success,
and strategies for improvement (if needed).
5. Who are the coaches?
With a passion for health and wellness, we come from various backgrounds and educational experiences and draw on each other’s strengths: nursing, cardiology, sociology, addictions behavior, fitness, wellness, nutrition and an understanding of the issues surrounding obesity. Plus, many of our coaches have a personal history of obesity and weight loss.
