Have you ever gone on a diet, lost weight, only to gain it back, and then some?
At some point, did you just throw your hands up in despair and say “what’s the use?”
Do you want to know
- the real reason why dieting doesn’t work?
- why you gain more weight with each diet you go on?
- and then eventually enter the ranks of the diabetics?
Here’s why …
When you diet, you lose muscle mass as you lose weight instead of losing just fat. This reduces your body’s “calorie-burning engine.”
When you go on a diet, lose the weight you want, then go off the diet … if you haven’t learned how to make the correct changes to your unhealthy food habits and if you go back to eating the foods that caused you to gain weight in the first place, you will gain the weight back.
In other words, if you didn’t learn healthy eating habits to help you maintain the weight loss, you’ll gain it back.
If you’re eating foods that are not blood-sugar friendly, i.e. foods that raise your blood sugar, like candy, cookies, pastries, energy bars, sodas, fruit juices and even too much fruit, you’re setting yourself up to not only become a diabetic, but also to gain weight.
When you go on a diet to lose weight and your focus is solely on the weight loss, you miss the reason for the inability to maintain your weight loss. There may be underlying functional health imbalances that prevent you from maintaining a healthy weight and healthy blood sugar over time.
The adverse effects of hidden food sensitivities that may have been diminished or eliminated when you avoided the guilty foods while on your diet come back with a vengeance when you go back to eating them, which in turn brings the weight back.
And if the diet program you’re on allows you to be hungry, have food cravings, low energy or brain fog the likelihood that you will stick with it is greatly decreased.
Does this mean that you should give up, forget about losing weight and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and just learn to live with it? Wait for the diagnosis and the drugs?
There is a way to achieve and maintain healthy weight loss and prevent the onset of diabetes and other chronic diseases.
The first step is a health assessment to get a baseline measure of your state of health. You need to find out if you have any functional health conditions that may be preventing you from losing the weight and keeping it off.
Following a ketogenic elimination diet, with the essential supportive nutrients, will allow you to biochemically set your body to use excess fat for fuel while protecting muscle mass, i.e. preventing you from losing muscle mass as you lose weight, and reducing elevated blood sugar, as well as eliminating hunger, maintaining blood sugar, having high energy and a clear mind.
Most important is to be eating “the right” whole foods your prepare from scratch … no packaged foods, no gimmicks, just real food and specific nutrients designed to support your body in healthy weight loss and healthy blood sugar levels.
Losing weight is not just about weight loss. It’s about improving your health and in the process allowing your body to achieve a normal weight.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), one out of three Americans are either Type II diabetic or pre-diabetic, and by 2030 one third of Americans will become Type II diabetic.
If you take anyone under the age of 30 out of the equation, these stats become even more alarming as 50% or more adult Americans will most likely have one of these conditions.
The good news is that pre-diabetes is reversible, proven by a government conducted double-blind study.
Unfortunately, our standard of care is waiting for people to become diabetic, at which point medication is offered that for most people will NOT stop the progression or complications of diabetes.
You Can Prevent Diabetes Naturally
- Learn how to never become a diabetic (that is lifestyle induced).
- If a diabetic, learn how to stop the progression and complications of diabetes and wean off any medication.
- Learn how to have correct food habits to maintain weight loss over time.
- Correct anyone of 15 health conditions that could stop you from succeeding with weight loss over time.
- Pinpoint nutritional deficiencies that can be corrected before they become chronic and diseased
- Pinpoint food allergies and sensitivities that can bring back lost weight in the form of water retention or create other health problems.
- Pinpoint chronic conditions that will take more than lifestyle changes to correct.
- Feel better than you normally feel with energy and mental alertness while having no hunger or cravings.
- Eat normal whole foods without the need for meal replacements shakes, bars and count systems and learn how to be in control of your blood sugar.
- Spend 30-50% less on your food costs as your body is bio-chemically set to use excess belly fat for fuel, without you feeling any hunger or feeling deprived.

Did you know the reason why people…
- do not succeed with weight loss or

Functional lab testing is expensive and time consuming. We have the ability to analyze your functional health condition by having you complete an online symptoms questionnaire. By answering about 290 questions, you will not only be able to see which of 15 functional health conditions are imbalanced, but you will also be given your WICO® Wellness Score.
This score like FICO® for credit, will establish your wellness index and is a function of how many of the 15 functional health conditions being analyzed are severe, moderate and mild. We recently were certified to offer this unique assessment and would like to offer it to you at NO COST! This is a $75 saving as a thank you for your trust in our clinic. We will also provide you with a free consultation ($100 savings) on your WICO® Graph Output for a total savings of $175!

The Digestion Sessions
Did you know that sixty-percent of the Unites States population alone is dealing with at least one symptom of digestive dysfunction?
You name it — gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal pain, candida, constipation, diarrhea — the statistics say that YOU are more than likely experiencing one or more of them, right now at this very moment.
Living with digestive problems has become the new normal. Typically, they begin as minor complaints — a little indigestion here and there, the occasional tummy ache or bout of heartburn.
Sooner or later, what was once a minor annoyance becomes something that can literally take over your life. This usually happens for two reasons — embarrassment and ignorance.
Let me explain.
Let’s be honest, no one goes out of their way to talk about their digestive problems. What happens on the other side of the bathroom door has become the most taboo of topics, a private matter requiring the utmost discretion.
Unfortunately, there is no “bathroom therapist” office to sit in safety and speak freely about your bowel issues. Instead, you keep it to yourself and hope it will all go away with time.
And that’s when you find yourself in the doctor’s office, finally revealing every detail of what you’ve been going through for months, maybe years.
At some point during this cathartic act of courage you realize that you’ve used up all 12 minutes of your allotted appointment time and suddenly find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for a drug that comes with two pages of side effects.
No exam. No testing. No investigation whatsoever into what may be causing your symptoms.
Just ignorance in the form of a pill.
THAT is the very question hundreds of millions of people worldwide are asking about their digestive problems.
Today, I’ve come with the answer.
The truth is that “modern day” medicine has fallen as much as 17 years behind the latest research. In other words, almost two decades will pass before your doctor recommends what actually works.
Chances are, your doc is unaware of the growing number of research studies demonstrating these alarming findings:
- The toxicity of persistent constipation may cause common, everyday symptoms like fatigue, attention deficit, and brain fog.
- Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are almost always rooted in digestive dysfunction.
- The inflammation from gut dysfunction can spread throughout the body, causing inflammation in the brain, joints, and other important organs.
By the way, inflammation in the gut may also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat. Not good.
Most doctors are either unaware of this information or don’t care to know. Meanwhile, people like you are paying the price in unnecessary suffering and medical bills.
This has to stop. Now.
And that’s why our friend Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness — a real life health crusader — put together a FREE online event called The Digestion Sessions, featuring 25 on-camera expert interviews and gut-healing cooking classes on all things digestion — so you can get the answers you’ve been looking for. Without the 17-year wait.
