Healthy Weight Package: Losing Weight Naturally
Weight loss or weight gain is about so much more than just the amount of calories a person consumes. There are many factors at play that most people are not aware of. The thing that breaks my heart is when people put themselves down or get depressed over their weight changes. Negative body image issues can be crippling and painful to a person’s peace of mind. It is not just about will power and discipline — sometimes even calorie restrictions can make you gain weight! This is due to poor food quality, cutting out food groups, or eating processed foods made in a lab.
There are specific types of fats, proteins and carbohydrates that need to be eaten to support your health and weight goals. There are new diets showing up on the market everyday that try to sell you on the benefits of cutting out fats, carbohydrates or protein. The body needs all these food groups to survive and thrive. Deprivation will cause your body to rebel against you, and make you gain back your original weight plus some if you deprive it of what it needs in the long run. The key here is being able to take high quality and the right types of food to combine them in a way that’s right for your individualized needs. With the right professional guidance, losing weight naturally is easier than you think.
The Healthy Weight Package includes:
- A look at your digestive system, blood sugar and hormonal imbalances
- A brief look at any other body systems that may be hindering your weight loss goals

- Recipes and/or a food plan to help you achieve optimal nutrient balance, reduce the need to overeat, reduce or eliminate food cravings and reach your weight goals

Surprising Reasons For Your Weight Gain and Loss
Other not so well known causes of weight gain include blood sugar imbalances, adrenal and thyroid imbalances brought on by chronic stress, digestive disorders (that cause poor nutrient absorption and can be a factor in food cravings), and food sensitivities. Amino acid (the essential building blocks of protein), essential fatty acid (Omega 3 and 6), and vitamin and mineral deficiencies also affect weight. Hormone imbalances due to aging, chemicals and toxins also need to be looked at. And, these are just a few of the reasons you may be losing your battle with weight!
Together we will sit down and look at all the contributing factors and put together an effective, sustainable, and individualized plan just for you. No fad diets or strict calorie counting, but something you can use for life. I can help you achieve safe, permanent weight loss, or help you discover why you may be suddenly losing weight that you do not want to lose.
In addition, we look at how thought patterns and emotions affect your eating habits. Are you using food to stuff down feelings of loneliness, anxiety or stress? Is it easier for you to focus and obsess over calorie counting than deal with a traumatic life change like a divorce or losing a job? Are you using calorie counting and food obsession to avoid dealing with your life? Are you trying to conform to what you have been told you should look like by others?
We can explore this together. Remember, I have been there and I am looking out for your best interests. Enjoy a complementary 30 minute consultation today at 604-831-6506.
