Weight Loss for Diabetics and Those With Insulin Resistance
Weight loss is one of the most important goals for the more than 80 million Americans with Diabetes. Diabetes has spread across the entire nation like a wildfire and has been equally as devastating. Did you know that 33% of the population that does not yet have diabetes, actually has insulin resistance and what is commonly called “pre-diabetes”? The statistics are sobering – and what is more, diet and exercise are generally NOT enough to reverse the trend.
To help with preventing the devastating effects of diabetes, Dr. Hoffman will help you lose weight. More importantly, Dr. Hoffman will help you keep the weight off, and improve your overall health as well. Most of the patients that go through Dr. Hoffman’s weight loss programs don’t just want to get their weight down, and in fact have tried that for many years. What motivates most patients is the deep desire to change their lives permanently, and make a change that is lasting. The types of changes that Dr. Hoffman will encourage and help you to make will include specific suggestions that are designed for who you are as an individual. The very basic approaches for improving your health and helping you lose weight will include the following:
- Medical Nutrition – Specific to your unique needs as an individual. NO PACKAGED FOODS will ever be recommended- unlike many weight loss programs
- Dietary Counseling
- Natural Blood Sugar Stabilization
- Behavior Modifications
- Emotionally Driven Food habits
- Medications When Needed
All of the time you spend in the office will be spent directly with the Doctor – not staff members, technicians or nurses. This allows you to establish a relationship of trust with your doctor and ensures that the health care you receive is focused, thorough and as supportive as possible. Dr. Hoffman encourages you to improve your health in as many ways as possible while you lose weight!
