Nutritional Compliance, Metabolic Profiling and Patient Food Preferences
Patients, lean body mass, metabolism, activity and food preferences vary. Using our proprietary metabolic analyzer your assistant can create a sliding scale (carbohydrate, fat, & protein amounts) nutrition program that is individualized for each patient’s lean muscle mass, age, activity level, metabolism and food preferences, lifestyle factors and medical needs recommending widely available foods.
Whether patients purchase organic food at Whole Foods or shop at Wal-Mart, Costco or regular grocery stores we provide weekly goals, shopping lists, meal plans and nutritional information based on their preferences and lifestyle. We Get Specific We provide the specific name brands of foods to purchase because many foods vary in nutritional quality.
Our individualized approach results in increased compliance, happier patients and better outcomes. Physicians that have Lifestyle Counseling Programs set themselves apart from others in their community, increasing patient referrals and income through credible nutrition counseling.

HERE’S THE SECRETE TO OUR PROGRAM
Our software, training, support, and marketing have been refined and updated over the last 25 years based on actual experience counseling thousands of patients in our clinics and hospitals and training and supporting over 900 physician practices nationwide. We are nutritionists helping doctors successfully incorporate the most up-to-date nutrition counseling into their medical practices.
Through onsite and webinar training we can effectively teach and support your clinical assistant or “wellness coach” to perform metabolic assessments and review the nutrition recommendations with your patients.
Our patients are successful and motivated to adopt lifestyle changes because we provide
- healthy, widely available supermarket food
- detailed shopping lists
- food combinations, simple recipes
- weekly goals
- exact name brand foods
- realistic exercise programs
- specific eating out guidelines
- stress reduction
- focus on Blood Sugar Management Not Calorie Management
- long-term behavioral changes and so much more
It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for a wellness coach to make up a custom meal plan and perform the metabolic assessment
Our patients embrace our suggestions highlighting specific functional foods and food combinations to help regulate their blood sugars properly and prevent diseases, rather than counting calories fat or carb grams or food groups. Our lifestyle applications are realistic and motivating and our patients look forward to incorporating them into their lifestyles, unlike the traditional ways patients are instructed to eat. Your patients will thank you for giving them a nutrition program they enjoy and can live with.

Americas Problem – IF YOU ARE NEW TO WEIGHT LOSS OR NUTRITION COUNSELING – THIS IS A MUST READ
Most COMMERCIAL AND MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS FOCUS WITH MEDICATIONS, HORMONES, DIET SUPPLEMENTS, VITAMINS, PACKAGED FOODS, SHAKES. BARS ETC. The average cost to lose 20 pounds of weight in America – Costs $960-$1,600. And these programs ARE NOT PHYSICIAN SUPERVISED. (Source – Center for Science in the Public Interest [CSPI]). For example, the most popular packaged foods program in the US costs approximately $4,600 to lose 20 pounds of weight.
Eighty percent of your patients want to eat healthier, exercise more, lose weight & learn how to decrease their disease risks with food & lifestyle rather than just with medications. As a busy practitioner, you don’t have time to put together a personal nutrition and exercise program. So, you provide generic diet handouts for many of your patients. As a result, patient compliance is poor and you feel your patients are not receptive to making any diet or lifestyle changes. Quick fixes rarely work in the long term and patients are prone to relapses, additional weight gain and medical issues associated with yo-yo dieting or weight cycling. Our program can work with or without these other medications and products, it’s your choice!
Body mass index BMI is just an oversimplified height and weight relationship. Measuring lean muscle and percentage of body fat weight and a patient’s metabolic rate and activity level is a much better way to determine the correct amount of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat to manage their blood sugars, energy level, hunger, appetite, cravings, or fatigue throughout the day. Our program allows your assistant to quickly incorporate this individualized approach efficiently and correctly. Younger patients place importance on disease prevention and weight loss and older patients are interested in management of existing chronic diseases.
Because of the Obama Health Initiatives, the obesity crisis and since credible Lifestyle Nutrition Counseling programs are relatively rare in comparison to other types of “DIET PROGRAMS” in the US more physicians are incorporating nutrition counseling and credible weight loss into their practices. Eventually most doctors will be providing nutrition counseling to their practices. Once you do you will probably find it to be a clinically rewarding land lucrative experience.
Our Programs Are Less Expensive, More Profitable & Market Well
Anti-Aging and Lifestyle Counseling Programs based on patients eating real food are less expensive and more profitable for their owners. Typically 50%-70% of revenues collected for diet products, food, medications, hormones etc. are paid to supplement companies. Behavioral lifestyle programs market well, and gain the respect from community and peers, patients are less likely to revert back to their old habits once they discontinue to purchase diet supplements or medications and decreases the likelihood for relapse and weight gain or yo yo dieting or weight cycling . HOWEVER, MANY OF OUR DOCTORS COMBINE OUR LIFESTYLE NUTRITION PROGRAMS WITH OTHER WEIGHT LOSS MODALITIES SO PATIENTS CAN LEARN HOW TO EAT FOR DISEASE AND RELAPSE PREVENTION. Credible nutritional counseling builds loyal happy referring patients, is effective for generating word of mouth referrals and is a value added service that is personally and professionally and financially rewarding service for the doctors that implement them.
