In our program we go much deeper into treating weight loss issues than your average weight loss program. We don’t just monitor weight reduction. At the core of our program, we are retraining your body to process sugars and carbohydrates properly and more efficiently.

We restrict carbohydrates in order to give your pancreas a break from constantly releasing insulin. Over the course of your weight loss journey this will improve your insulin resistance, which is a major contributor to converting sugars and carbohydrates into body fat. We also limit the amount of fat you are taking in, because if are consuming too much fat, your body will not utilize your own fat stores as energy.

Our program is not a high protein diet like most other carb restricted programs. We analyze your body composition, and determine the precise amount of protein consumption for optimal muscle mass maintenance.

The StrongLife Weight Loss Program is safe for all participants, except for individuals who have kidney or liver dysfunction. You must see our doctor before committing to our program. Anyone with Type I Diabetes must also see our doctor prior to committing to our program.

Yes, women lose on average 2-5 pounds of body fat per week, and men lose on average 3-5 pounds. It is necessary for the dietary protocol to be followed precisely in order to achieve these results. If our protocol is being followed and weight loss is not occurring, it could potentially be due to:

  1. Intentional or Unintentional deviations from the diet (cheats)
  2. Muscle Gain vs. Body Fat Mass Loss
  3. Menstrual cycle
  4. Lack or enough movement or resistance training
  5. Lack of enough quality sleep
  6. Increase stress

These potential causes would be addressed at your weekly weigh-in.

Although our diet is considered a medium to low calorie diet, our dieter’s bodies are actually registering “more calories” than they likely were prior to going into ketosis. Why is that? They are burning their own fat stores for energy. When we shift energy systems, specific enzymes need to be made in order to utilize the ketone bodies produced from burning their own body fat.

This process takes typically about 2 weeks, and after 3 weeks the enzymatic processes are getting completely set in place so that they are able to use 100% of those ketone bodies as fuel. During this critical period when your blood sugar begins to drop, your muscles will begin to go through the process of gluconeogenesis (a process that makes glucose to put back into your blood stream).

If you increase your energy demands by exercising to vigorously during this time, this ramps up gluconeogenesis and risks tapping into your muscle mass for fuel. WE WANT TO AVOID THAT AT ALL COSTS!

This is not a typical “calories in, calories out,” balanced diet. This is all about hormones and metabolism. After the 3rd week, dieters are able to resume physical activity and exercise.

We consider our program a medium to low calorie diet. Typically when individuals see “low calorie” their mind then automatically thinks one of two extremes; high-protein, or low-protein. Our program is neither, we ensure adequate protein consumption (safeguarding the kidneys) calculated from each participant’s body composition analysis, and monitor their protein need throughout the program.
