Do you feel you gain weight easier than others and your weight is gradually creeping up despite your efforts with diet and exercise?
We have an interest in addressing the underlying causes of weight gain in both men and women. In addition to discussing lifestyle, nutrition and exercise we focus on finding other underlying issues contributing to weight gain.
We investigate to identify underlying issues which can contribute to weight gain such as thyroid or borderline thyroid issues, leptin resistance, hormone deficiency or imbalance, problems with glucose metabolism, gut micro biome imbalance and genetic issues.Correcting these issues can help you to lose weight and keep it off.
Our nutritionist can advise on individualized eating plans tailored to your lifestyle and/or any identified risk factors.
