Medical Weight Loss in Colorado Springs: HCG, Doctor-directed personal training, diet plan, cleanses and more
Thrive Health Systems believe that weight loss is best accomplished when overseen by a weight loss doctor in Colorado Springs, who can control the process form start to completion. Weight loss can be caused by so many things that are medically related, not just diet and exercise related. Weight gain can be caused by food allergies, hormone imbalances, depression and other mental health disorders, stress, and various diseases. Until you get the underlying cause identified by a physician, you may never obtain the results you aim for.
In fact, many of the diet programs in Colorado Springs and nationwide use products that contain substances that are harmful for the weight loss participant, from a health perspective.
At Thrive Health Systems, we perform a thorough physical exam prior to diving into weight management. A properly functioning body properly burns fat. We recently found that one of our patients had a food allergy to wheat, and by going on a gluten-free diet and following an allergenic elimination diet, he has lost 35 lbs in four weeks. He lost 35 lbs in 4 weeks without increasing his exercise routine.
However, the truth is, his story is not your story. At Thrive Health Systems, we individualize your care plan, based on your unique health status. Your solution may include HCG weight loss treatment by one of our medical practitioners, blood tests, allergy tests, hormone tests, an exercise regime overseen onsite by our personal trainer, a diet plan, a cleanse, and more. Of course, it is likely not all of these and it may be just one of these things.
One thing to also consider is that health comes first at Thrive. A healthy person is an active person, at their ideal body weight. Just because you are skinny, that doesn't mean you are healthy. We think "health first."
An example of this that we don't speak in terms of weight loss, we speak in terms of health and body composition. For instance, most men would rather be 225 and shredded with muscle, than 195 and skinny. The problem with most of us is not that we are overweight, but that we are over-fat. This is why we measure body composition, rather than just using scales.
Colorado Springs weight loss is a phone call away. Come in for a free consultation with one of our weight loss doctors in Colorado Springs, and get started on a healthier you.
Colorado springs personal training: "How my dad lost 250 lbs and healed himself from Type 2 Diabetes"
Hi, my name is Ethan Boynton and I'm a Colorado Springs personal trainer, and I'd like to tell you an outrageous story that fuels my passion for personal training.
I hear a lot of people talking these days about how much of a waste of time it is to train and stay in shape. I hear it’s “too late” and, “what’s the point”, from one to many people, and it worries me. What I tell people in response to that is, “If my Dad can do it, then you officially have NO excuses.”
When I was 15 years old my Dad was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, and it wasn’t a surprise, the man was 5’10” and 450 lbs. You had to be at the dinner table early on thanksgiving when he was around.
His response to finding out he had Type 2 Diabetes was about the same as my Grandmothers: “I don’t feel any different, so why change anything?”
What my Dad failed to realize was that when my Grandmother lost her foot, one of her eyes, and went bald - all in five years - it wasn't part of the “growing old process.”
My Grandmother learned to eat right the last 3 years of her life because someone else was feeding her.
At the time, my Grandfather had recently died also. One day I went to my Mom and told her, “I just lost my Pa, and now I’m going to lose my Dad too.” And she, being the wonderful woman she is, immediately told my Father about this. I thank God to this day she did. It freaked him out and made him realize just how serious this his condition was, and it also made him realize how much of an impact his disregard for his own health impacted others around him.
So he finally came to me and asked me to help him, and that’s when the magic happened. I put him on the proper diet and exercise program, he did what I told him, and he lost more than I weigh. He now weighs 200lbs, meaning he lost 250lbs, and believe it or not, his diabetes went away!
He is off his medications! He is going to the doctors less! He can now tie his own shoes! All this because he stopped making excuses. He showed me that people chose how they live. For him, he got well because he stopped using excuses: genetics, how he was raised, eating healthy is too hard, I can’t afford to be in shape, I was fat when I was a kid, I’m content right now, or, my husband/wife loves me the way I am.
When it comes down to it, it all has to do with how important your health is to you and just how high, or low, of a quality of life you want.
My challenge to you is instead of looking at your health at the present, look at your health in the future. Think about what you would look like or how you might feel if you continue like you are right now.
If you don’t know the answer to this, then I can offer you an assessment that will give you an idea on your health. It's called a Wellness Score. It costs $99 and we will spend 30 minutes together going over your goals, hopes and dreams and how I can help you get there. Once we perform the score, go over your goals, we will workout together for a one hour. It's a great value.
To change your life, call us at 719.475.8676 to schedule your Wellness Score and first training session.
