Transformations Weight Loss Program
Over 2/3 of US adults are overweight or obese and almost 1/3 of children are overweight. We are now raising the first generation of children who will have shorter life-spans than their parents. Yet, so many people have difficulty losing weight on their own.
At Desert Wellness Center, we can help you achieve your weight loss goals with our Transformations Weight Loss Program. Because our program is designed to ensure that you eat adequate high quality protein, muscle mass is protected so that as you lose weight you are actually losing fat and not muscle. Additionally, the protein helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and consequently, patients don’t experience the hunger, carb cravings and mood changes that occur with many other weight loss programs.
Our caring physicians take the time to sit down and help you create a meal plan that works for you, so that you leave the office with the tools needed to know what you should be eating. The nutritional plan during the weight loss phase then becomes the foundation for a whole-foods well-balanced diet that will keep the weight off for life. Try the time-tested and proven all-natural weight loss program that actually works!
What will I be eating while I am on the program?
You are taught that you must eat 3 meals per day and each meal must contain protein and carbohydrates. Many people mistakenly believe that by eating less they will automatically lose weight. However, by reducing your food intake too drastically, you actually slow down your metabolism, making it more difficult to lose weight. You will be given a 3-page list of foods from which to choose what you want to eat. Our doctors can help you adapt previous recipes to now work for you in achieving your weight loss goals!
Are there any supplements that I will be taking?
Between meals you will be drinking 4 tasty nutritional packets (available in a variety of delicious flavors) to help you keep steady blood sugar levels and minimize hunger and carb cravings without using artificial or dangerous appetite suppressants. Additionally, the nutritional packets contain necessary vitamins and minerals to help support fat metabolism as well as detoxification because as we break down fat cells we also release toxins that were previously stored there. Consequently most patients feel better upon beginning the Transformations program because not only are they losing weight, but they are also ridding their bodies of toxic chemicals.
Is there a maintenance program associated with Transformations?
When you reach your goal weight, you will begin the maintenance program in which you will add foods back into your diet in a way that will test for food sensitivities. Many people who lose weight end up gaining it back because they continue to consume foods that they are sensitive to. Consequently, people who have food sensitivities feel much better than they have in a long time while on the program because they are eating a hypoallergenic diet and notice how much worse they feel when they try to eat the way that they ate before beginning the program. The maintenance program also addresses lifestyle issues, which may also create a propensity for weight grain. By following the maintenance program, you will be given all the tools you need to keep the weight off for life!
What are other long-term benefits to losing weight?
Being overweight can lead to fatigue, poor self-image, hormonal imbalances, and sleep disturbances and has been associated with increased risk of developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and high cholesterol to name a few.
Is this program safe for diabetics?
Transformations is an excellent program for anyone with diabetes! It can greatly help to normalize blood sugar levels and reduce the need for medications. Please let the doctor know if you have diabetes and she will tailor the program to meet your individual needs.
Is this a meal replacement program?
No. In order to achieve successful weight loss that will be maintained for life, patients must learn how to eat realistically in a way that they can develop good dietary habits that will continue after they finish the program.
I only need to lose a few pounds. Is there a program for me?
Yes, the 4 Week Transformation Detox and Weight loss program is designed for people who only need to lose less than 10 pounds, which involves an overall cleanse as well as a set menu and nutritional supplements for 4 weeks.
