Have You Tried Just About Every Weight Loss Program?
We meet so many clients that have tried just about every weight loss program. Losing weight is not a "one size fits all" process. At Gateway Natural Medicine & Diagnostic Center we realize that every patient is different, and we work hard to make sure you achieve the results you’re looking for. We work one-on-one with you to modify the program to best suit you and your body's needs.
Numbers Beyond the Weight Scale
It’s important though to understand how much of a problem we are having with weight in the US. According to the National Weight Control Registry there are about 108 Million people on diets in the United States, and these dieters make about 4-5 attempts each year. There are about 220,000 people with morbid obesity, and the cost for bariatric surgery can range from $11,500 to $26,000. Another study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine estimates by 2030 about 42% of US adults could be obese adding $550 billion to heath care costs.
Obesity also brings increased risk for other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer or even stroke. There’s no better time than right now to make changes to your current lifestyle. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but the changes that will impact you will also make a huge difference for your family.
The Reason For Our Success
The reason we have so much success with weight loss at Gateway Natural Medicine & Diagnostic Center is because we know that everyone’s reason for weight gain can be completely different. Weight gain for some patients results from stress or poor lifestyle choices, and for others it can be more complicated. It’s not uncommon for us to find that some people are pre-diabetic and need assistance with handling blood sugars. Others may struggle with weight loss because of infections or conditions like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
At Gateway Natural Medicine & Diagnostic Center, we follow the Activate Metabolics Program for fat loss. Additionally, as part of this program we utilize Genetic Testing to determine the right plan for you. A well-known clinical study was performed by one of America’s top universities, Stanford University, to determine if DNA testing was effective to assist in helping people to lose weight. When compared to other well-established and effective weight loss programs, those people that were on a meal plan that was specific to their genetic profile lost 2.5 times more weight than those that were not on an individualized plan. The science clearly speaks for itself. This is the reason why we utilize genetic testing to identify the best plan for you. This allows us to put the control back in your hands! For the rest of your life, you will know how to eat and to be as healthy as possible. The test is completely painless, non-invasive, and an imperative part of your focused lifestyle change.
