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.
