Losing weight is undoubtedly one of the most challenging goals many people face today, not to mention the most frustrating! There are so many fad diets and diet programs out there that it is extremely confusing to know which one is the “best” or will make you lose the most weight. Compounding that is the fact that what works for one person doesn’t always work for someone else.
The weight loss program at Real Health & Fitness is a simple, easy to follow, realistic 12-week program that was designed by medical professionals and nutrition experts, using scientific-based evidence for turning your body into a fat-burning machine. It has helped numerous people just like you lose the excess bodyfat and feel great, not to mention slow down the aging process by avoiding foods known to cause disease or harm to the body.
What makes this program different?
First and foremost, you will be eating REAL food, not “phood” (artifical food) or pre-packaged ready made foods unless they are fresh and do not contain harmful additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients.
Second, each week of the 12-week program you will LEARN a new topic about how the body functions in relation to the foods you eat. Think of it as an educational program not only for your weight loss goal, but for your health as well. Once you understand WHY you should avoid certain foods and the detrimental effects they can have on your body, it becomes a lot easier to steer clear of them. On the flip side, when you can confidently make the right choices to fuel your body it will empower you and help you continue your healthy lifestyle, not just until you lose the weight.
Third, the program is tailor made for you. Food sensitivities, health issues, hormonal imbalances and exercise options are taken into account when designing the specific food program and caloric intake you require to reach your weight loss goals.
Last, you will learn about how to change your emotional relationship to food and how to use food as fuel and not as a substitute for comfort, love or any other emotion. This is done by re-directing your focus and energy away from food and towards other means, using behavioral change strategies.
No more crash dieting, yo-yo dieting, severely restricting calories to the point of starvation, injections, or avoiding carbs (your body NEEDS carbs……just not the nutritionally void ones like white bread or white pasta)! You’ll get additional benefits as well: lower cholesterol, clearer skin, better bowel movements and improved cardiovascular function, to name a few. And you’ll do all this without feeling hungry all the time. You will not have to exercise to the point of exhaustion; moderate levels of activity will be recommended to you based on your fitness level and weight loss goals.
The program includes a 90-minute initial consultation including a comprehensive analysis to determine the amount of food you will be eating each day, based on your ideal weight, your current level of bodyfat and the amount of calories your body actually burns at rest. You will receive a binder with the specific details you need to get started.
11-weekly follow-up visits are included, (2 in-office plus 9 phone consultations) at 20 minutes each, where your eating habits, mindset and progress can be properly monitored throughout the program. You will continue to learn how to reach and maintain your goal.
Weight loss is typically 1-2 lbs./week for women and 2-4 lbs./week for men. This level of weight loss is the ONLY way to guarantee permanent, healthy weight loss
