Performance Health and Wellness — Irvine Weight Loss Programs
Performance Health and Wellness has developed a series of Weight Loss Programs to help patients lose weight naturally while learning how to keep the weight off for long-term success!
Our approach to weight loss is to gain an in-depth understanding of why you are struggling with weight loss and to uncover which natural remedies will best correct the underlying cause of your weight issues, including low thyroid function, hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, stress and emotional eating.
Our comprehensive weight loss programs take into account your current health, family history, current and historical eating habits, and lifestyle factors to devise an individualized treatment program based on the information collected. Since no two people are exactly alike, your program is individualized to meet your needs.
Weight Loss Programs Designed Specifically for You!
Weight gain and weight loss are dependent on many factors, and calorie intake is not always the answer. At Performance Health and Wellness, our strategy for weight loss is to uncover the underlying cause of your weight gain, why it is difficult for you to lose weight and teach you how to keep it off permanently!
Our comprehensive weight loss program starts with an in-depth look at your body composition. We then base your program on your lean body mass, subcutaneous fat, and visceral fat content, as well as inflammation level, activity level, and overall goals. With this information, an individualized macronutrient prescription is developed. This allows us to be very specific on how much protein, carbohydrates, and fat you should be eaten to reach your goals. Our approach is to gain an in-depth understanding of why you are struggling with weight loss to uncover which natural remedies will correct the underlying cause of your weight issues. This may include thyroid function, hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, stress and the cause for emotional eating.
Our programs are very unique — during your consultation, we will discuss the food you enjoy and how they can be incorporated into your plan. Don’t like vegetables? We work with you to uncover ways to continue eating the foods that satisfy your appetite while promoting weight loss at the same time. We emphasize the nutritional counseling component of your program to teach you what foods will work nest for your body. You will eat whole, natural foods — no prepackaged meals!
Aside from weight loss, your overall health improves as your body transforms in many ways such as:
- Beautiful, Glowing Skin
- Healthier Hair and Nails
- More Energy, Better Mood & Uplifted Spirit
- Improved Quality of Sleep
- Improved Digestion
- Decrease in Visceral (Dangerous) Fat
Eliminating Dangerous, Visceral Fat
Visceral fat — also known as “dangerous” fat — does more to our bodies than cause our clothes to feel snug. Visceral fat is stored around your organs and contributes to health concerns such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, sleep disorders, and even sexual dysfunction. Because visceral fat is stored deep below the subcutaneous fat (the fat directly under the skin), even people who appear to be thin may have visceral fat lurking around their vital organs.
Visceral fat is stored due to eating too many calories, an imbalance in sex hormones and/or growth hormones, overproduction of cortisol, and excess consumption of dietary fructose (sugar).
Our programs utilize individualized eating programs that will benefit the condition you currently struggle with. These include:
- Anti-inflammatory diet for arthritis
- Anti-Candida diet for yeast overgrowth
- Low-estrogenic diet for estrogen-dominant conditions
- Low-carb, low-fat, high-protein, and high-fiber diet modifications
Exercise and Lifestyle Coaching
An integral component of your body transformation includes being active! Exercise is an essential part of any weight loss program and is encouraged when following this plan. We will calculate your basal metabolic rate to determine the amount of exercise you will require. Modifications may be recommended based on your current activity level.
