TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY™

Why A WHOLE FOOD, PLANT-BASED PROGRAM?

A lifestyle that emphasizes fresh, nutrient-rich whole food is effective at promoting health and stimulating weight loss.  Behavior change doesn’t happen overnight – it takes commitment and support from experts to develop a healthy relationship with food.  When you’ve been flooded with dieting messages for years, it takes time to rid your mind of this 'dieting' mentality and make positive progress to get you on track to feeling healthier and performing your best. A whole-food, plant based (WFPB) lifestyle has been show to improve and even reverse many chronic illnesses. We're here to help. 

I’ve tried so many diets. Will this work for me?

TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY™ is NOT a diet. Not only do diets not work – you’re either “on” them or “off” them, right? – they’re the root of many of your problems. Over 90 percent of diets fail, and often you leave frustrated & blame yourself - not the diet. The truth is, it’s the process of dieting that is the problem, increasing your risk of gaining even more weight than you lost. Combining medical science with the art of food and plant-based cooking can bring different and sustainable results.  

Do I have to become a vegetarian?

No. 

 

We like to best describe it as a lifestyle where we help to incorporate the majority of nutrition from unrefined plant foods. If when participating in our program, we help you shift from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to whole food, plant-based eating even by 30%, 40% or 50%, you'll see tremendous benefits from this big change.  It doesn't mean you never eat meat or dairy, but the more you plants you incorporate, the overall healthier you'll be. 

Will I lose weight?

While many of our people come to us looking to lose weight, this is not the only focus or goal of our program. If you are only focused on losing weight, you’ll undermine the TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY™ process. We will certainly talk about your desire to change your weight, but we will not be using only weight as the sole and only indicator of success or progress. Our focus on nutrition and harmonizing it with sleep, exercise, and stress management all play an active part. 


Some people lose weight during this process, and for others it takes more time - naturally we're all different. If you have been eating for emotional reasons or not paying attention to your innate signals, or if you’ve gone through a lifestyle change that caused unnatural weight gain, it’s likely that you’re not at your natural healthy weight right now. As you go through the process, and heal your body from the 'diet mentality' your weight will likely normalize. While we would love to provide an absolute, we simply can’t guarantee results because weight loss is such a complex process. We can assure you that we will do everything we can to help you get the tools you need to make it happen. 

Can I keep my primary care DOCTOR?

Yes. We can function as your nutritional consultant alongside your primary doctor or specialists.

How long will this process take?

It depends. TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY™ is the opposite of dieting.  While dieting is easy at the beginning and gets harder (or impossible) as time goes on, TAKE OFF WEIGHT NATURALLY™ is much tougher up front. It seems simple (eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full) but it’s more complicated. You have to undo all of the diet mentality and food rules in your head, and create new habits to replace the old ones. It takes time and intention. While it can be challenging at first, once cooking and eating normally becomes actually normal, you’ll reach a place of caring for yourself NATURALLY – for life.
