Weight Loss Management

At NMR the clinical management of a person’s weight revolves around the non-disputable principles of fundamental healthy macro-nutrition, dietary glycemic control and metabolic repair. Our passion is creating a healthier, stronger person from the inside and our concern is that many fall prey to weight loss gimmicks and games that purport weight loss without one’s health and body balance in mind.

Our weight loss approach can be clinically driven by one of our doctors and/or accomplished with weekly meetings of education and support on nutrition and therapeutic lifestyle changes that are critical to a healthier and fit individual.

During the course of a detox or cleansing program the body may not always feel its best, particularly through the first few days. Being monitored by a healthcare provider who specializes in nutrition is essential to help you through any obstacles you encounter and to ensure your detox process is healthy and safe.

Suffering from headaches or fatigue during the detox may simply be caused from the lack of caffeine that you normally get from your coffee, but other more serious issues may be happening to your body during a detox or cleanse that can also make you feel weak, fatigued or dizzy.  Your detox may not provide the minimum calories or protein your body needs.  This is not advisable.  Consuming only a ‘juice cleanse’ can make your insulin levels spike and then crash. The lack of calories and/or protein can force your body to burn muscle mass for energy, which can give you that weak, fatigued feeling that’s not from a lack of coffee!

Exercise is important during any detoxification program, but it should not be overly strenuous during this time. Ultimately, exercise will also help ensure a healthy body composition, the relationship between your lean muscle tissue and your body fat.  Maintaining and/or building muscle mass will help increase your metabolism to burn calories faster. By adding muscle building exercise, the scale may not be ‘moving down’ but you will be ‘slimming down’!  That’s because you are building muscles which weigh more than the fat you are burning while exercising, making you leaner.  Here is where the dividends to a consistent resistance exercise program pay off big.

Stress can also be toxic to your body.  Your body produces stress hormones to protect itself.  Your body needs that stress hormone (cortisol/adrenaline) when you’re being chased by an attack dog, but if you are always under stress and your body is continually releasing large amounts of these stress hormones, your liver needs to work overtime for them to be detoxified.  Learning stress reduction techniques such as deep breathing or yoga exercise can be very helpful.

The detox or cleanse is just the beginning part of the NMR weight management program which will guide you through the steps to help clean out and eliminate foods that are toxic or “addictions” to your body.  Break your habit of eating foods that are not helping with your weight loss and start learning how to replenish your body with quality low fat proteins, healthy carbohydrates and fats, as well as supplements when needed.
