Weight Loss & Weight Management

Sustainable weight loss requires the right diet & exercise for your chemistry to restore metabolic imbalances & reduce inflammation in the body.

You’ve likely been taught for years that there’s a clear formula for weight loss: eat less calories than you burn and the pounds will come off. But we now know this formula is an oversimplification of a complex process, driven by many metabolic factors. An increase in body weight—or difficulty losing weight—is a clear sign that something bigger is out of balance.

Like many chronic health problems, obesity is multifactorial. Addressing it with mainstream medicine’s approach—take a pill, eat less, move more, etc.—does patients a significant disservice. The ‘calories in vs. calories out’ approach benefits some people, but is most effective when accompanied by:

  • Gut health optimization

  • Inflammation reversal

  • Nutritional status improvement

  • Hormone balancing

  • Toxicity reduction

If you’ve been consistent with diet and exercise, but still aren’t seeing the results you want, it’s time for the functional medicine method to lose weight…and keep it off.

The Functional Medicine Solution to Lose Weight

Weight loss provides significant health benefits, in addition to looking and feeling better. A healthy body weight reduces your risk for nearly every disease, and increases quality of life & longevity. Done in a healthy and sustainable way with the support of a functional doctor, there is no drawback to working toward a healthy weight.

A functional medicine approach to weight loss focuses on metabolic, hormonal, environmental, and other factors that might be keeping you from losing weight. We’ll guide you every step of the way to first build a healthy foundation, and then help you troubleshoot plateaus and remove barriers that have prevented you from losing weight in the past.

Weight Gain Driven by Insulin Resistance

Today, about a quarter of adults over 20 years old are insulin resistant, which increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, and every other chronic metabolic health problem.

Why is insulin relevant for weight loss? Insulin acts as a fat storage hormone when elevated. Its primary function is to help cells use glucose (sugar) in the diet for fuel.
In response to eating, the pancreas releases insulin which allows cells to remove sugars from the blood, and blood sugar levels stay within a normal range.

Insulin resistance prompts the pancreas to produce more and more insulin as cells have become “resistant” to its message. In response to elevated insulin levels, the body opts to store more fat. 

If your weight has climbed steadily over the years, your doctor may recommend testing fasting insulin levels, blood sugar, and/or hbA1c.
