About Our Weight Loss Treatments
Unfortunately, we are bombarded with information and misinformation from the time we wake up to the moment we fall asleep. What is a healthy diet? What is the best way to lose weight? Should I follow the low-carb, low-fat Subway Diet? Or the Atkins Diet? The list goes on and on.
Most people agree that being overweight or obese will lead to countless medical problems. Although there are many obese people with medical problems, most doctors do not receive adequate nutritional education. “Eat less, Exercise More” is the common answer to our weight loss questions.
The goal of this program, however, is not just to help you lose weight. Anybody can lose weight with exercise and low calorie diets. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge, the nutritional and behavioral guidance, and the specific tools you need to take control of your own health and ultimately reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Part of our program uses technologies to determine several factors. First, we can establish what type of diet is best suited for an individual to maintain proper weight. Second, adjustments can be made to an individual’s diet to help reduce damage caused by inflammatory factors associated with fats and/or carbohydrates. We are able to see tendencies toward cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and strokes long before they happen.
Healthy Futures’ nutritionists will tailor a nutrition plan in accordance with your health considerations as well as any culinary restrictions due to allergies, lifestyle, and/or religious considerations.
Dexascan and Body Composition Analysis
This is the gold standard for determining bone density and body fat to muscle ratio. Dexascan is used in diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis (loss of calcium in the bone), which makes the bones brittle. The body composition component is used to establish a baseline and follow changes in muscle to fat ratio with nutritional and exercise therapies.
In a consultation with Healthy Futures’ medical staff and only after your health and physical capabilities have been determined, a Healthy Futures exercise consultant will recommend an exercise regimen that is within your ability but will set you on a path towards greater health and well-being.
