Weight Loss through Lifestyle Management

At Prairie Health and Wellness, we don’t believe in diets. People are being bombarded with quick fixes, pills, “fat burners”, calorie counters, “weird tricks”, avoiding that one food (I’m looking at you, bananas!)…  and the list goes on and on.

Results from previous NEWU Program participants:
13.3% decrease in fat mass
13.7% decrease in fasting insulin
20% decrease in CRP (inflammatory marker)
13.8% decrease triglycerides

… and that’s just in the first 12 weeks!

 

We believe…

  • in nourishing our bodies
  • in learning more about the food that we put into our mouths
  • that true change and transformation comes from the inside
  • that there are no quick fixes or shortcuts
  • there is a way of eating that the entire family can follow
  • this way of eating can be sustained for a lifetime
  • most diseases that Americans struggle with are directly related to what we eat 

 

Lifestyle Changes for Weight Loss

The low fat, low cholesterol lifestyle has, since 1973, sent our nation on a path of obesity, hypertension, and heart disease. In this pursuit of low fat food we’ve massively increased our intake of sugar. It’s in almost everything and it’s poisoning us. 

Now is the time to start changing the way you think about food. We want to help you simplify the choices that you make. Understand that the type of calories you put in your body are more important than the number of calories.

 

Monitoring

We know that the scale doesn’t tell the whole truth. Some people get frustrated when they work hard, but don’t see changes on the bathroom scale. We’ll be analyzing body mass with a full body DEXA Scan, and measuring end points with comprehensive lab tests.
