Nutritional Therapy Program

64.5% of all Americans are either overweight or obese. Even without charts and statistics, all you have to do is look around to see that we are an overweight nation. Our medical weight loss and nutrition therapy program can help you.

The Standard American Diet (SAD)

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is a significant contributor to our obesity issues. Over the past 30 years the amount of processed foods and foods with added sugars has skyrocketed! This combined with a sedentary lifestyle has stacked the deck against most of us when it comes to trying to lose weight. Being overweight or obese comes with an array of health issues; high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes to mention a few. Add to that the emotional stress of being overweight and you have depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue. Along with the physical and medical symptoms that obesity causes, are the medications prescribed to address the problems. These medications can then cause other problems and now we are in a never-ending circle of dysfunction with our body and mind. We never get to root of the problem….our diet.
