Functional Weight Loss
In June of 2018, Dr. Emmert completed her training with the medical team at Metabolic Balance, and launched her functional weight loss program. She herself lost 31 pounds six months ago, and has led 26 patients through the program since. Each participant has had great success getting and keeping weight off.
This program entails the following- after a patient receives a blood draw, Dr. Emmert evaluates the extensive panel, and creates a personalized meal plan. This plan is designed to improve heart health markers, reduce insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, increase metabolic function, balance hormones, and shed unwanted pounds- for good.
The meal plan is based on a wide variety of foods that are best for each individual. There is no "blood type" or pattern to follow- each plan is truly tailored to a patient's medical and nutritional needs. There are nuts, meats, grains, dairy items, fruits and veggies to choose from. The meal options are simple, easy to make, and inexpensive. A participant in Metabolic Balance has a complete list of what to buy when shopping, and how to put the foods together, when home.
There are no supplements, no hypnosis, no pre-packaged meals, no caloric restriction, no exercise requirements. Participants eat three delicious, satisfying meals a day, and typically lose between 12 and 30 pounds in thirty days.
An independent study at a University in Germany found that after one year, over 62.5% of Metabolic Balance participants were still at their goal weight. Source: http://www.hri.de/index.php?menuid=1&reporeid=58
The Metabolic Balance Program with Dr. Emmert includes the lab work, personalized meal creation, and ten coaching sessions with acupuncture, for just $1800. If a patient lives out of the Santa Cruz area, the cost is $1500 as acupuncture will not be included. Dr. Emmert is happy to coach participants through the program via phone or computer, in the event that they live elsewhere.
If you are ready to drop the weight, please give us a call. Dr. Emmert is happy to do a complimentary 15-minute phone consult to explore if this program is a good fit for you!
I've had wonderful results, while on the Metabolic Balance Program. My food list is easy to use. I've become more creative in preparing my meals. Following the plan, the pounds seem to magically come off, but I realize that the program is simply using my body's own ability to burn fat. I've been on other weight loss programs, but none that have provided the results that I've experienced thus far. It is not easy- there are rules to follow, but it does work! Not only have I lost weight, but I am also a lot healthier. Thank you Lishanna for getting me on the right track! I'm feeling so much better than prior to starting this program.
