Is this the best approach to weight loss if I have a medical condition?
We have the professional health care network to assist even if you have complex medical conditions including Diabetes, PCOS, Heart Disease, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Sleep Apnoea and many other chronic conditions.
Our Mission is to provide a weight loss program and meal plans that is tailored to medical, health and lifestyle needs. Our team will use the latest medical research and evidence accessible to build a weight loss plan.
Where required, we can facilitate your care for weight loss at Nutrition Melbourne with access not only to our specialist clinicians but our network of trusted doctors and other team members combining nutrition, exercise, psychology and medicine into an individualised programme that is tailored to you.
We provide the latest, evidence-based medical protocols in the area of weight management and its coexisting medical conditions to help you create a healthier, metabolically fitter and psychologically brighter you.
Is there weight loss medications prescribed in the program?
While weight loss medications in the classical sense have proven to be “good in theory” but “poor in the real world” there is situations where some medications and supplements can be strategically pulsed to amplify certain physiological states. This is an advanced strategy, and is not a consideration for those who have not otherwise optimised their nutrition, activity, sleep and environment. But when these things are in place, this is something that can be explored under the guidance of our specialist team.
Healthy food, when used in the right time and in the right sequences is very powerful. So strategy combinations of what, when and why with healthy food is where we start as this has the biggest return-on-effort.
My partner has joined the weight loss program, will I get the same plan?
During the initial consultation we will discuss your goals, evaluate your needs and present to you recommended evidenced based eating plan and weight loss solution that suits your medical conditions, past weight loss history and your current time and work commitments.
Each client is managed according to their individual needs, history and preferred treatment strategies. Where you have a partner who is already following a Nutrition Melbourne weight loss program, we will do our best to coordinate your approach, with divergences where necessary, in order to maximise the support and minimise the labour load whilst still meeting your individual physiological needs. This is an example of just one area where the skill and experience of our weight loss professionals at Nutrition Melbourne shine.
How long before I see results?
Results will vary from person to person but usually you’ll start to notice changes within 7 days when working to your meal plan and weight loss program. It is important to note that if you have a lot of weight to lose then we are definitely going to expect weight loss, but body transformation goes far beyond what we see on the scales. Therefore, we will often recommend getting a suitable body scan to assess fat mass, lean mass, bone mass, visceral fat etc to get a complete picture on your body transformation journey.
What if it doesn’t work for me?
We are here to support you every step of the way. All weight loss programs come with access to our specialists. So if you have any questions about your nutrition plan or other aspects of the program, want to discuss making changes to your meal plan etc you have access to us and we’ll evolve your plan as time progresses to manage how your body is responding, so that you still have a fulfilling life, good mental health and an overarching healthy lifestyle.
What if I have a lot of weight to lose, will it still work for me?
When you have a long road ahead and severe obesity and a lot of body fat to lose, the worst thing you can do is follow the exact same meal plans and eating habits for a long time. There are too many reasons to mention here as to why this doesn’t work.
What we will look at doing is implementing different phases and various approaches to provide very different signals to the body at strategic times throughout the process. Food is information to the body. Changing the “code” from food, in the right sequence, at the right times can have a profound positive return-on-effort.
My fitness level is very low, is this going to be a barrier to implementing the program?
While activity is very important for long-term healthspan, a low fitness level prior to the commencement of your program is certainly where most people start. You don’t need to be doing a full daily exercise program of fitness classes!
One of the worst things you can do early in the piece is get injured! This will set you back a long, long way especially if you are not metabolically healthy.
Therefore, in acknowledging the likelihood of a low fitness level and potential negative implications of going too hard, too early, we will very gradually ease in to things from an activity perspective starting at YOUR level currently and building from there.
As you lose weight and your strength and energy improves, then we can look at how to appropriately build up the activity components of the program on the path to your goal weight and personal fitness goals.
Will I rebound weight gain?
This is a great question and something everyone should be paying attention to. In reality, losing body fat is not the hard part (generally, as long as you have the right plan) of the weight loss journey… it’s keeping it off that is the challenge.
We spend a lot of time with specific protocols to manage the immunomodulatory, endocrine, physical and other metabolic counter-regulatory mechanisms that naturally occur following weight loss. This is something that is a vitally important part of our weight maintenance strategy…. and we’ll make it easy for you to implement by that stage in the journey so you can ensure sustainable weight management.
