Have you felt frustrated with an inability to lose weight or discouraged by watching your weight yoyo? Thrive’s approach is designed to help you to lose weight and keep it off while working WITH your body, NOT against it. Many factors determine how the body regulates metabolism and appetite. The Thrive approach to weight loss will balance your hormones, reset your metabolism and control your appetite so you can maximize your efforts to achieve and maintain your ideal weight once and for all.

If you are looking for exceptional results, then you have found the program that combines safe, rapid weight loss with a foundation for permanent lifelong change.

THE PROGRAM

thrive plan whitePhase 1: Foundation phase
A seven day “clean up” to reduce inflammation and detoxify the body.

Phase 2: Loading phase
An intentional increase in caloric intake for two days to “reassure” the body food is in abundant supply and it is OK to burn fat as fuel.

Phase 3: Transformation Phase
You are actively losing weight. This stage can last four to six weeks. Foods are chosen not only to slightly reduce caloric intake, but most importantly, to stimulate the hormones that encourage the body to use fat as fuel and preserve muscle mass. Medicines can be incorporated to aid in appetite control. (This phase of the program can be modified if cellulite reduction is a goal.)

Phase 4: Resting Phase
Slightly increased caloric intake for a week allows the body to acclimate, and helps to minimize frustrating weight loss plateaus.

* Loading, Transformation and Resting Phases are repeated until desired weight is achieved

Phase 5: Integration Phase
• Golden rules to keep the weight off for life.
• Hormone and amino acid balancing.

In summary, we don’t just put people on a “diet”… we strive to compose a food plan with adequate protein, healthy fats, and minimal carbohydrates in order to reduce insulin, normalize cortisol, while enhancing glucagon and growth hormone. The result: effective weight loss while looking and feeling great!

Patient Testimonials

  • "I love going to Avante...they take pride in patient care and are always willing to accommodate... simply the best.."CSL
  • "I have been a patient at Avante for 5 yrs now, and I have only positive things to say about the quality of the care that I receive from the entire facility. From the smiles at the front desk to the efficient lab techs and all of the staff in between. My health has turned around thanks to the care from Kiki Green and Grant Gibbs. Competent, caring and constantly striving for the newest information available to share with me. They embody the best in what I want in Holistic and Modern Medical care - JH 
  • "I came to Avante about 8 months ago when I was looking for a doctor after moving to Alaska, my husband and I saw Dr. Jana.  We were pleased with the office and esp. the care we received from Dr. Jana. It feels good to leave a doctors office not loaded down with lists of new medicines but  positive thoughts of lifestyle changes that will produce better health. I started seeing Tina at the first of November and two days after the first acupuncture treatment I was in the least amount of pain in over 25 years.  Believe me I have tried many different medical treatments some with more success than others.  I am so encouraged to look forward to more mobility and greater health! I feel younger and more energetic. Thank you Avante.  I also love the patient portal and have found that the staff always responds to my online questions." - PM

  • "I have been a patient of Avante's for several years now, and I have only wonderful things to say about their business. The place is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very helpful and kind, and the providers, all 3 I have seen, currently Kikki Green and Grant Gibbs, have been intelligent, intuitive and efficient. They care about you and your health. The lab is clean and full service and the nutritional supplements are extensive and high quality. The use of the Patient Portal is outstanding!  Give yourself extra time is my only recommendation as they sometimes get backed up on scheduling." - JH
