Diet4Shape Fat Loss Program aims to help people achieve success with our Long Term Weight Management Plan.
Diet4Shape fat loss program is successful because we aim to help people throughout all the stages of the weight loss process.
We recognize that the process of weight loss is complex and lengthy. It is not limited to just losing a few kilos.
It starts with Intention, followed by Engagement. The 3 to 6 weeks of being on HCG is only the active phase of engagement and is by no means the end of the weight loss program. Many people go through several courses of HCG to achieve the desired weight.
This stage is followed by another very important phase: the Transition Stage when we go from a very low calorie diet to eating “normally”. We call it the Stabilization Stage or short term maintenance.
This stage is at least as important as the low caloric intake stage.
Following weight loss, the body is very vulnerable, because all those fat cells that we emptied are now “crying “to be filled again. Therefore being prepared for this stage is crucial. That is why we schedule follow up visits with specific agendas in order to ensure the success of the program.
During this stage we give people precise dietary guidelines and continue to monitor their progress.
We also address their co-morbidities and look into the causes of initial weight gain.
The goal is long term maintenance, of course.
Studies have shown that we need to maintain the weight loss for at least 2 years to maximize the chances for long term success. After studying extensively and comparing the results of several clinical studies of weight loss maintenance we have devised strategies that seem to make a real and positive difference in outcome.
A key to success in the 2 years following the weight loss is Early Intervention!
Even 1-2 kilos weight gain is significant and needs addressing promptly.
