What type of Diet is Used for Weight Loss?

Calorie restriction is an important part of a weight loss diet. With a plan from Dr. Brinley, a low calorie, very low calorie, or reduced-calorie diet will be used.

What is a Low-calorie Diet (LCD)?

The foundation of weight loss is diet. With a low-calorie diet (LCD) or very low-calorie diet (VLCD), it’s possible to lose 2 to 7 pounds per week.

A low-calorie diet will include full or partial meal replacement, making it easier to lose fat while conserving muscle tissue. Meal replacement options provide necessary nutrients for your body throughout the weight loss process.

What is Metabolic Testing?

A very important part of weight loss is your metabolism. Metabolic testing will provide a measure for the number of calories you burn when resting, which is known as your metabolic rate or RMR. In addition, it will provide your VO2 Max, which is the maximum ability of your body to consume oxygen during exercise.

This information allows Dr. Brinley to better customize  the right weight loss plan for your specific body and its’ abilities.

Why are Food Allergy Tests important to Weight Loss?

Food allergy tests are important to weight loss because you may be sensitive to specific foods and not even know it. Not all food allergies come with severe symptoms. It’s common for a person to struggle to lose weight due to a food allergy they are not aware of.

By eliminating the foods you’re allergic to, it’s much easier to lose weight. While you may not think you have food allergies, most people have some type of allergy to some type of food and they don’t even know it. This is known as delayed food allergies, which don’t show symptoms in the same way as immediate food allergies.

Often, delayed food allergies are referred to as food sensitivities or intolerances. You can still consume the foods you’re allergic to without a trip to the emergency room, but your body won’t function at the highest level when foods you’re allergic to remain a part of your diet.

Why is Hormone Testing important for Weight Loss?

As a key player in regulating blood sugar, insulin, metabolism, and weight, hormones are strongly connected to your weight. Hormone testing offers a look at what type of hormones your body is producing, which is a major key to successful weight loss.

Hormone triggers change as we get older and unexplained weight gain may be a symptom of a hormone imbalance. In addition, a hormone imbalance could explain why you’ve struggled to lose weight.

With hormone testing, you will know if there’s an imbalance. Some of the most common hormone imbalances causing weight gain or making it harder to lose weight include:

  • Estrogen and Progesterone imbalance
  • Low testosterone
  • High or low cortisol
  • Vitamin D3 deficiency
  • High TSH
  • High insulin
  • High HbA1c

With proper testing, Dr. Brinley will be able to better customize the right weight loss plan for your specific needs.
