Nutrition

Nutrition

Lipolysis [li-pol-uh-sis] is the process of breaking down fat.

Allocation [al-uh-kay-shun], or to allocate, is to apportion for a specific purpose; in this case, to provide energy.

Our nutritional program is based on the body’s natural ability to burn or store energy. The term “energy allocation” refers to this process. If one understands how the body utilizes energy, one can access fat stores as an energy source. This is not an easy process. Changing the way our society approaches eating is at the core of this program. The old “3 square meals a day” is out. We encourage our clients to eat 6 times a day. Two other significantly important variables are the types of food to eat and the portion size of those meals.

The preliminary results of this program suggest that a compliance of 80-90% will significantly reduce body fat and promote weight loss…and, by the way, there is a difference between weight loss and fat loss.

One of our clients who started the program in the morbidly obese category maintained a compliance rate of 80% or higher for the first month. The results: 18 pound weight loss and more than 2% loss of body fat.

The biggest obstacle to people’s success in weight loss and fat burning appears to be a lack of knowledge or misinformation. Most people are still overly focused on fat content and reach for pre-packaged carbohydrates that are low in fat. This is a sure way to store fat and continue to gain weight.

Our nutritional program provides a high level of structure and support around changing your eating habits. You will receive a pocket sized handbook emphasizing the 7 simple rules of the L.E.A.N. Program. Within this handbook are a month’s supply of daily records to keep track of what you eat, a shopping list, and detailed explanations as to why you are eating this new way. Monitoring forms are provided for you and your doctor to keep track of BMI, weight, % body fat, and other laboratory parameters…if needed.

If you have tried and failed other nutritional programs, don’t give up. We are here to help.

Activity

Activity

It is difficult, if not impossible, to compensate with exercise if nutrition is poor. Establishing healthy eating habits, then incorporating more activity will give you the results you want. Energy demands are largely dependent on whether the body is at rest or non-rest. Maintaining a baseline activity level is very important in increasing metabolic rates.

Exercise is a useful tool in burning calories, but it is actually simpler than that...just Move. The fact that many of us lead sedentary life styles and continue to eat the way we used to is a sure way to fail. If the pelvis is resting, your capacity to burn calories is reduced e.g. sitting down. Regular exercise at least 5 times per week focused on a combination of cardiovascular training (walking, jogging, running, swimming, basketball, soccer, etc.) will maximize results. Resistance training (weights, bands, pushups, pull-ups, etc.) is especially important as we age. Developing muscle increases the energy demands of the body, making it easier to burn fat.

If one wants to accelerate the process, interval training, maximizes the energy burning potential of the body. We can guide you to a manageable, appropriate level of exercise to meet your needs.

Behavior

Behavior

Human behavior is complex; eating is one of those complicated behaviors. It needs to be simplified, so it can be understood and then modified. There are several reasons people don’t lose weight.

  • Lack of understanding. (most common)
  • Lack of will power.
  • Other psychological factors (e.g. denial)

Changing habituated behavior is not easy. You must change your behavior in order to achieve a different outcome. We have been conditioned our entire lives to eat and eat well. The problem is "well" changes over time. Given that food is an immediate reward (or reinforcer), changing the way we eat takes much effort. Even more concerning is the way certain foods affect our brains creating an almost "addictive" quality to food e.g. sugars, caffeine.

Many people lack the self-esteem and/or self-discipline to be successful...this is where the L.E.A.N. Program can help. Breaking the cycle of carbohydrate craving and understanding the issues of denial and resistance, we will counsel you to stick with it. Many people use food as a self-destructive tool to further impact the way they feel about themselves. STOP!

You, too, deserve to be healthy, fit, and vibrant. Quit hurting yourself; don't wait until it is too late. You will not be hungry. You will lose weight. You will burn fat. Give us a try.
