Low-Calorie Diet Programs
Low-calorie diets (LCD), and very low-calorie diets (VLCD) are effective weight loss programs for people wishing to lose large amounts of weight safely and quickly. With careful medical monitoring, patients can lose pounds per week on low-calorie diets.
WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM INCLUDE?
Low-calorie diets include full or partial meal replacement with medical weight loss formulas such as Metagenics. These products use precise portion control, stimuli narrowing and high protein, low carbohydrate formula to help you lose fat while conserving muscle mass and avoiding cravings and hunger.
Glycemic Control Program
Commonly referred to as “low-carb” diets, Glycemic Control relies on a concept called the “glycemic load,” or GL, which ranks carbohydrates by how dense they are in sugars relative to fiber. The lowest end of the index takes longer to digest. Slow digestion wards off hunger pains and helps to stabilize insulin levels. Foods high on the glycemic load include bread, white potatoes, and pasta, while low-glycemic foods include leafy vegetables, some whole grains, some fruit, lentils, and soybeans.
Diet & Nutrition
Many of our programs involve reducing and monitoring your caloric intake. However, when we’re talking about “diet”, we’re not just talking about a short term (and frustrating!) plan to eat less. By examining the nutritional density and value of foods, you’ll learn not “how to diet” but how to make better choices, allowing your diet to work for you, not leave you starving and feeling deprived. Our nutritional experts will devise the best, most effective nutrition and fitness plan that incorporates your health concerns, your goals and your lifestyle, making it as simple as possible to integrate the dietary changes into your day.
Lifestyle Coaching & Motivation
We understand that weight loss is so much more than just a physical problem, with issues like discipline, motivation, and even forgiveness playing roles in successful weight management. Dr. Rubbani offers personal counseling in the fields of behavioral weight loss, exercise, relaxation techniques, stress management and lifestyle strategies to provide the wisdom, expertise, and support for you to discover, design, and live your best life.
Dr. Rubbani will work with you to clarify your challenges, leverage your gifts, and make powerful choices, focusing squarely on your success and happiness.
These are an important part of achieving your best health, as most people consume sub-optimal levels of vitamins by diet alone. Vitamins are a crucial factor in looking your best, feeling energetic, and decreasing risk factors for many common diseases. After a thorough evaluation, consultation, and diagnostic tests, we can recommend the right supplements for you.
We believe that it is prudent for all adults to take vitamin, mineral, and other nutritional supplements. We prescribe pharmacy-grade supplements or nutraceuticals, that is uniquely matched to each patient’s needs. After careful evaluation of diagnostic test results for vitamin, mineral and fatty acid imbalances, health condition, aging bio-marker profile, dietary habits, metabolic and energy needs, free radical load, preexisting health conditions, and risk factors, we help our patients commit to a lifetime plan that includes nutritional supplements.
Antioxidants and Omega-3 Supplements
Our bodies produce toxins, called free radicals, as part of the natural aging process. However, excessive weight loss or gain, minimal exercise, tobacco usage, processed foods, mental stress, and environmental pollutants also cause our bodies to produce free radicals. Higher levels of free radicals can cause an elevated incidence of cancer, stroke, heart attack, and a shorter life span. Antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids are the second line of defense against the additive effects of life in the fast lane. These supplements, like the vitamins we prescribe or recommend, are manufactured in a compounding pharmacy to provide the highest quality formulations.
