We recommend

Frequent Follow Up Helps Weight Loss
The United States Preventative Task Force and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommend frequent follow up visits in the increments of once, twice or 4 times a month to help support and assist in weight loss and weight management.
Avoiding Artificial Sweeteners and Sweet Drinks
Although artificial sweeteners do not provide any caloric benefit, it is believed that consumption of such products (except stevia, xylitol, and alcohol sugars) will lead to elevated insulin levels and decreased blood sugar which then will lead to the craving of carbohydrate rich foods. This will cause weight loss to stop and possibly cause the accumulation of fat.
Finding An Exercise You Enjoy
Not everyone finds running, biking or going to the gym enjoyable. It is very important to find the type of exercise or activity that will make you excited to do it. You will not only have more fun doing the activity but you will also be more likely to continue to perform that activity more frequently, which helps your weight loss and vitality.
Getting In Depth Metabolic Testing
There is something that online programs and traditional weight loss programs can't do, and that is receive and interpret your metabolic testing. Seth Merritt is one of only a small handful of board prepared weight management specialists, and he will assist you in finding things that help explain weight gain and the struggle behind your weight loss success.
