Weight Management

Weight Management

If you are struggling with maintaining a healthy weight, you may need a more comprehensive assessment of your lifestyle habits, hormone levels, nutritional intake as well as movement.  Addressing these obstacles will help you reach a healthier weight.  Normally patients who are interested in weight management are assessed for the following:

  • nutritional intake (in the form of diet diary)
  • current exercise/movement program
  • thyroid, estrogen, cortisol hormones
  • glucose and insulin markers
  • food sensitivities, dysbiosis
  • adequate sleep

Approach to weight management with patients involves:

  • commitment to movement
  • commitment to eating real and nutrient dense foods and proper portion sizes
  • addressing hormonal imbalances
  • addressing nutritional factors
  • addressing sleep issues
  • setting realistic expectations
  • monitoring progress and providing guidance through the process
