Food & Science

for Your Natural Well-Being

Lose Fat? No Problem: Eat More!      

Losing extra body fat is very important for managing your health and well-being. We have created seven different protocols, with more in progress, for helping our clients lose excess fat.

All of our therapeutic protocols are based on scientific evidence, nutritional biochemistry, clinical experience, and epidemiologic studies.

Before establishing the right personalized diet for you, the first step is to map your anatomical body mass and delineate your physiological profile and nutritional needs through anthropometric measurements using skinfold, densometric and echo-adipo-ultrasound scans.

Indeed, through ultrasound technology, we measure and track fat and muscle thickness to more accurately monitor the effects of diet and exercise, capturing scans of localized anatomical sites to produce cross –sectional images.

After analyzing the data as a whole, we create an individualized diet program that fits with your needs.

As we introduced in “Obesity puts your life in danger,” a criteria of our protocols is to keep your body's insulin level fairly constant, without daily peaks.

The anabolic activity, as an effect of insulin, is responsible for increasing the deposit of fat in your adipose tissue.

Keeping your glucose level at 5mM throughout the day will help you have plenty of energy available for your daily needs without feeling hunger.  

By the way, hunger -- a complex behavioural state that elicits intense food-seeking and consumption – is a result of imbalanced nutrient intake. In other words, it's an alarm from the hypothalamus, part of your brain, that your diet is not correct.

Correspondingly, the feeling of satiety, due to mechanisms involving the ventromedial nuclei and lateral hypothalamus, is important feedback in my protocols.

Another ingredient of our protocols is that the balanced intake of nutrients must be closely correlated with your energy needs.

That is, your body has everything it needs so it doesn’t create any resistance to burning fat.  

A few words about fasting: the main problem with total fasting, as far as protein nutrition as concerned, is catabolism (breakdown) of the lean body mass.

Total fasting can provoke cardiac arrhythmias, destruction of heart muscle fibers, and hepatic and renal damage.

Below you can see the results of our latest session in weight management and weight loss of 55 women ages 28 to 67 (shown in adherence to the privacy policy):

The data show that the obesity grade II° has been drastically reduced in one year of treatment. The normal weight obtained was maintained for the duration of subsequent monitoring (data not shown).

Along with gradual reduction of excess body fat, we have an increase of muscle tissue, as well as a gain in intracellular liquid. Raising your hydration status is a very important factor in fighting oxidation and the aging process. Note that the density of bone tissue, measured by densometric techniques, was unchanged throughout the treatment period. In accordance with the physiological data in literature, these results show that energy needs increase as the fat-to-muscle ratio is reduced. Indeed, gaining muscle while reducing fat means having more metabolically-active tissue.

In this case your body requires more “fuel” and, ironically, you need to eat more to lose more fat.
