15 Pounds and 6 ½ Inches

That’s how much a patient of mine lost on her first five weeks of her Transformations 360® Program.  She’s looking great … glowing, and feeling fantastic with so much more energy.

Since she started T-360®, her co-workers have been so impressed with how great she was looking, they started a “Greatest Loser” program where she works.

She’s in the number 1 spot so far.

Before starting the Transformations 360® Program, she was frustrated because she had been struggling trying to lose weight for YEARS.

She lost nearly seven pounds her first week, then between one and three pounds each week since. This is the average weight loss on this program.

Her weight loss goal when she started was 30 pounds. She is so excited about how she is feeling and how well she is doing, she’s now upgraded her goal to 45 pounds.

So, what is the Transformations 360® Program?

Transformations 360® is about empowering your life for wellness.

The first step is establishing your Wellness Index. You fill out an assessment questionnaire and are evaluated for 15 conditions based upon your symptoms. This gives you a baseline of your un-healthy markers.

Next, you follow a ketogenic, elimination diet … eating real whole foods. This provides you with enhanced energy and an improved mental state.

The eating plan is designed to help you lose abdominal fat, maintain muscle mass and reduce elevated blood sugar. You will take a nutrient dense protein drink which provides the nutrients you need to maintain healthy body functions, lose weight healthfully and eliminates hunger cravings so you feel good while on the program.

Re-evaluation of your Wellness Index helps to pinpoint food allergies and sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies and chronic conditions. It identifies the root cause of your symptoms so you can correct un-healthy markers. Chronic conditions need the attention of a health care practitioner … who can help you improve your health and reverse conditions like pre-diabetes.

What makes this program more effective than other weight loss programs?

On the Transformations 360® Program you …

  • maintain your muscle mass while you lose fat so you retain your body’s calorie-burning engine.
  • learn healthy eating habits that not only help you lose the weight, but also to keep it off.
  • address functional health imbalances so you’re able to lose weight, maintain your weight loss and healthy blood sugar levels.
  • pinpoint food intolerances, address them, and keep the weight off.
  • feel good during weight loss, without hunger, cravings, low energy or mental fatigue, which makes it easy to stick with the program.

Say No to the Yo-Yo … Weight Loss for Life

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?

Absolutely not!

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.

Say NO to the Yo-Yo and YES to Weight Loss for Life.

Time To Cleanse And Purify

Do you know that … if your body is toxic, it will be difficult to lose weight because your body stores toxins in your body fat to protect your vital organs. Once you detoxify, you can release the weight because you do not need the fat to protect you.

Iodine And Your Weight

Achieving a healthy weight is not always easy. If it were, 70% of the population would not be overweight.

For many, trying to lose weight, striving to achieve a healthy weight has been a struggle for a long time. Many people go on diet after diet, program after program and still hold onto the extra pounds. Some just give up after trying so many different things when nothing has worked. Others choose drastic measures like gastric bypass surgery or the Lap Band.

The key to weight loss is not losing weight. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you need to be healthy before you can lose weight and maintain the new weight.

If your body is toxic, it will hold onto fat to prevent the toxins in your system from harming your organs.

If you have a low functioning thyroid gland, your metabolism will be slow and it will be hard to lose weight. Even if you take supplements to support your thyroid gland, or you’re on thyroid medication, your thyroid could still not be functioning optimally if you are deficient in iodine.

Iodine is an important nutrient that we don’t often hear too much about. After the recent Japanese nuclear accident, we heard a lot about taking potassium iodide to protect yourself from radioactive iodine damage to your thyroid gland. But the truth of the matter is that if your body has optimal amounts of iodine in your tissues, you don’t have to worry about radioactive iodine or other toxic halides, like chlorine, bromine or fluoride, poisoning you.

But how many people have adequate levels of iodine in their bodies? According to Dr. David Brownstein, 96% of Americans are deficient in iodine. An iodine deficiency not only affects your thyroid gland and your weight, but it affects every organ and cell in your body.

If you’ve been struggling with your weight, with other health issues, or just not feeling as well as you would like to, you might be deficient in iodine.
