WEIGHT LOSS

Dr. Bruce knows losing weight isn’t easy. If this is one of your objectives, your program will begin with a conversation with a compassionate, non-judgmental expert who will perform a medical evaluation, review your history, and establish your health and wellness goals. From there, you and Dr. Bruce will create a personalized weight loss program, including diet/nutrition, intermittent fasting and exercise. Dr. Bruce will provide you with the support and tools to guide you along your weight loss journey. Your plan may include lab tests, referrals to nutritionists or personal trainers, prescription medication, and GxSciences’ Diet & Wellness Nutrigenomics Panel (coming soon). This panel tests for potential genetic variations contributing to metabolic syndrome and obesity such as the MTRR A66G gene, and the C677T MTHFR gene for which if one is homozygous deficient causes lifelong fatigue, depression, anxiety, and obesity. The good news is that there are nutritional supplements and medications for these genetic variants that can greatly reduce your weight, and give you back the energy you have been lacking for years.

Our office is equipped with a state of the art body composition analyzer, the InBody 570 to monitor your progress. This device goes beyond traditional body composition analysis by accurately measuring fat, muscle, and total body water. Total body water data can be divided into intracellular water and extracellular water, values important for understanding a person’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness and fitness contexts. The test only takes 45 seconds, but packs an incredible amount of objective data to provide instant feedback and personalized recommendations. We realize that sustained weight loss is mainly about changing habits and identifying long-term solutions, but sometimes there are some genetic contributors which can be treated with supplements and prescriptions. Our goal is to help you lose weight, empower you and put you on the path towards a positive healthy lifestyle.
