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.
Phase 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!
