One of the main things that brought me into Alternacare was an overall feeling of not being well. I tried to change my thyroid medications, I tried to loose weight and eat healthier but nothing helped me. I was very tired with no energy. I was not sleeping or eating much, yet I was still gaining weight and could not figure out why. I was so exhausted I could not do activities with my family.
After receiving treatment at Alternacare I dropped 4 sizes in clothing and lost 38 pounds! I have lots more energy, I’m sleeping better, I’m not as anxious and I’m feeling much better! Thanks Alternacare.

Drinking a low calorie warm soup broth, such as an organic vegetable soup, before a meal may help to reduce the amount of calories you eat during that meal. This works very well especially at dinner time. After a long day of work you may come home feeling stressed. Being stressed can cause an increase in the fat storing, hunger producing hormone cortisol. A warm cup of soup is calming to the stomach and body, which supports a reduction in cortisol. In addition, the soup is filling and your stomach sends messages to your brain telling it that it is getting full. In conclusion, a cup of warm vegetable, miso or chicken soup before dinner may be a great tip to help reduce overall mealtime calories and encourage healthy weight loss.
If it’s not in your home you probably won’t eat it so why not discard or at the least donate the food items that are bad for you. A quick weight loss patient said to me once, “I can’t throw that out, it’s food.” The definition of food is, “any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth.” The question I had for my patient was, “Is a Twinkie nutritious and can it maintain life and growth.” Of course not. Eating a diet high in junk food could contribute to developing diseases such as; diabetes, heart disease and cancer. If it doesn’t meet the definition of food and it can cause disease what is it? It’s poison. Now the body can tolerate a little bit of poison but when poison (junk food) becomes an all too familiar item in your pantry, it’s time to Purge Your Pantry!
So go into your pantry and just get rid of everything you know that is bad for you. If it’s not there you will be less likely to eat it. In addition, if you feel bad about throwing it out and you want to donate the food item, then bring it to my office. Not for us to eat silly. We have donated over 12,500 food items to the One Roof Food Bank of Newnan to help the less fortunate. So either get rid of it or donate it but please clean out your pantry. Sometimes you have to clean your grocery list up and clean your pantry out before you can clean your body out and lose weight.

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, blueberries were used by Native American Indians as part of their medicine. In addition, there are claims that blueberries can help your memory stay stronger longer. So getting old doesn’t have to be such a drag. They are also a good source of fiber, vitamin K and vitamin C. The AICR also reported that blueberries might reduce your risk of colorectal cancer, mouth cancer, stomach cancer and cancer of the esophagus. I personally recommend eating a minimum of 1 cup of seasonal berries each day for optimal health. They are great mixed with organic shredded coconut and plain Greek yogurt. Yum! If you can’t eat all your berries each day stop by the office and we have a supplement their that contain berries in it.
You’ve tried improving your eating, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Atkins, the Zone Diet, counting calories and every other diet under the sun. You’ve tried weight lifting, walking until your shoes have worn through but still, if you even look at a picture of cheesecake you’ll gain 5 pounds and the weight, despite everything you do, just won’t come off and stay off. This my friend I call SWS or Stubborn Weight Loss Syndrome.
SWS is extremely frustrating because it violates logical thinking. Here’s logical thinking, “If I reduce my calories I’ll loose weight.” Sounds logical, let’s see, if that’s always correct…..BLAAAAMMM. WRONG ANSWER!
See, all reducing your calories or exercising ever did was cause the glands in your body to make special hormones that cause your body to burn fat for energy. After all, that’s what you are after; to burn your fat for energy and as a result, lose weight. However, what if your glands are broken? Meaning, what if they can’t make the right amount of fat burning hormone any more. In this case it doesn’t matter how much you diet or exercise you can’t lose the weight. Why? Because your glands are broken. It’s the gland that makes the fat burning hormone. If it doesn’t work everything else you do will have only a minor result.
There are different ways to eat for different glandular problems that will help to support the healing of the gland and losing of unwanted fat. There is one particular way to eat, though that can be very effective for a large number of people. From my recent experience I’ve found there is one way to eat where the average person can lose between 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each and every week.
The way this works is to target the organ/gland that most Americans theoretically have a problem with and that is the pancreas. Americans in general eat too many carbohydrates. Carbohydrates turn to sugar in the blood and cause the pancreas to make the hormone insulin. Insulin is the hormone that lowers blood sugar which is good. Nobody wants to have high blood sugar and slip into a comma. However, when insulin is overproduced for too long a period of time, like 20 years or 40 years worth of American eating, you get too much insulin in the blood. Problem? YES! Insulin is a fat storing hormone. In fact, insulin is one of the most powerful fat storing hormones you have. A system was developed by an MD/PhD Dr. Chanh and he found if a person ate a certain ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fat they can lose 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each and ever week. I’ve used this system now with close to 60 patients and if they have a history of eating carbs in excess this system can really help them. It’s pretty rewarding as a doc to see 3 to 7 pounds of body fat fall off a person who in the past, could never get the weight off their fram. Pretty rewarding indeed.
If you’d like more information on how to eat and how to do this program just respond to this post or shoot me an email.
About 25 years ago, the French Olympic coaches needed a way for their athletes to lose body fat fairly quickly and yet preserve muscle. They needed quick fat loss but they didn’t want their athletes to lose any muscle. They turned to MD, PhD, Tran Tien Chanh. In his research, Dr. Chanh found that hormones are much more powerful than calories when it comes to losing fat. Don’t believe him? Did you ever see a skinny person eat all kinds of junk food and not gain a pound? Man, I don’t like those people very much 🙂 In contrast, have you ever known someone that did everything right? They ate perfectly, exercised perfectly but losing weight was a total struggle and had problems keeping it off as well.
To continue, Dr. Chanh looked closely at the hormone system and he found one of the most powerful of these hormones was insulin because of its incredible power to cause the body to store fat. In addition, Dr. Chanh found that it was nearly impossible to burn fat in the presence of too much insulin. Insulin, could not only make you fat but stop you from losing fat altogether.
So the culprit was insulin. He continued his research and found if a person ate an exact ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats they would be able to loss 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each week. I’ve used Dr. Chanh’s ratios with about 40 patients so far and found it to be very effective. Our own Front Desk Receptionist Chuck Landrum, has lost 17 pounds in 3 weeks using Dr. Chanh’s ratios. INCREDIBLE!!
Now, this ratio of proteins to carbs to fats is very hard to do in real life. Meaning, it’s not very practical. Few of us have the time to prepare the foods exactly right. If we had live in chefs then maybe we could find the time to prepare the food with the correct ratio. So what Dr. Chanh did for the average, non-Olympic Athlete Movie Star type person like you and I, was to create prepackaged, tasty foods in this exact ratio. This made Dr. Chanh’s system completely workable and helped the average person drop between 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each week.
The way the system works is you would eat 3 prepackaged meals each day and 1 of your own meals. These meals travel very well. Your meals are not expensive at all. Really, all you are doing is replacing what you would normally spend on food and spending it on this correct ratio food. You simply stop by the office to pick up your food or we just ship the food to your house. This is NOT a Jenny Craig or a NutriSystem type of program. This system is specifically created to affect your hormones and causes the average person to lose between 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each week. Once your weight goal has been reached, you can now, step by step, go into a maintenance phase. In maintenance, it is all about food combinations, which we will get into later….and yes you can absolutely keep the weight off. There are a couple nutritional supplements that are recommended on this program as well, that are not at all costly.
We start you off with a 10 day starter pack of food. This starter pack is a sample of many of the different food choices so you can see what you like and what you don’t. We have email order forms to make reordering food very easy for you or you just come into the office and shop off the shelves.
This program is all about helping you to lose between 3 to 7 pounds of body fat each week while preserving your muscle. It’s about supporting the prevention of heart disease, diabetes, insulin resistance and high cholesterol and helps a person obtain that youthful and wonderful feeling that occurs when you hit your ideal weight.
Please let me know if you have more interest and I can send you links for pics of the foods, food menus, as well as, the costs for foods. We have a special right now where you can save $100.
You can also call the office and talk with Chuck Landrum and he explain more in detail how everything works, (770) 304-1500.
Most people are in love with this program. They are so pleased to finally get the weight off and gain control of their body fat once and for all.
