Your health is the most important thing you have. Without it, you may be limited from both quality and quantity of life. You may not be able to enjoy the things that you love or be with the people you love. Health can be taken for granted, until suddenly, it seems irretrievable. Once you are diagnosed with a chronic disease, you become dependent on the health care system, which is known, unfortunately, for preventable errors and gaps in care.

This program is designed by people familiar with the health care system. While it is very necessary and accomplishes many things, prevention of chronic disease and preservation of health is not one of them. The healthcare system in America focuses on the 5% of the population that utilizes 95% of healthcare resources. It does not offer much for preventing disease, promulgating wellness, or remitting disease once it occurs. For this, you were on your own, until now.
In a typical doctor's office, there are many chronic conditions that are caused or worsened by excess weight. Many people with excess weight have negative experiences in the healthcare system, called "weight bias." Most healthcare providers are not trained in treating the condition of excess weight. If they address it at all, it is likely they will deliver a message akin to "Eat less, exercise more," or "Calories in, calories out." All the while, some people may have undiagnosed medical conditions or may be taking medications that caused weight gain.
Is bariatric surgery the answer? It might be part of the answer, but there is certainly much more out there than the cold, hard steel of the surgeon's knife. Has that become the "go-to" treatment of the healthcare system for obesity and Type 2 Diabetes since it is a billable procedure? Is there another option? Would you like the option to try? If so, keep reading.
Meal replacement shakes, puddings, soups and bars provide structured nutrition with predictable results. During the weight loss phase, these provide all the essential macronutrients, micronutrients, electrolytes, and vitamins while you are in a calorie deficit. They help preserve lean body mass and increase the ratio of fat loss to total body weight lost. After a weight loss, replacing one meal a day is a core part of weight regain prevention in today's obesogenic environment while fighting metabolic adaptation to weight loss. In today's obesogenic environment, it can be very challenging to have 3 meals a day ready to go.
