Weight Loss Clinic Overview
Here is an overview of our Kansas City weight loss counseling & nutrition program.
Have You Tried Every Weight Loss Program in KC?
We meet so many clients who have tried just about every weight loss program. If you stop and think about it … is losing weight a one size fits all thing? At Curis Functional Health in Lee’s Summit, we realize that every patient is different, and we have created a unique program that breaks the cycle and gets the results you are looking for.
Numbers Beyond the Weight Scale
It’s important though to understand how much of a problem we are having with weight in the US. According to the National Weight Control Registry, there are about 108 Million people on diets in the United States, and these dieters make about 4-5 attempts each year. There are about 220,000 people with morbid obesity.
Obesity also brings an increased risk for other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, depression, or anxiety. There’s no better time than right now to make changes to your current lifestyle. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but the changes that will impact you will also make a huge difference for your family.
The Reason For Our Local Success
The reason we have so much success with weight loss at Curis in Lee’s Summit, MO, is that we know that everyone’s reason for weight gain can be completely different. Weight gain for some patients results from stress or poor lifestyle choices, and for others, it can be more complicated. It’s not uncommon for us to find that some people are pre-diabetic and need assistance with handling blood sugars. Others may struggle with weight loss because of infections or conditions like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Still, others may have found comfort in food, engaged in emotional or stress eating, or have never learned to care about themselves.
Our team of health professionals (weight loss director and psychologists) work together to first find the cause of your weight gain. We use a variety of diagnostics to uncover as much information as we can. Then we will review that information with you and make a customized plan that makes sense for you.
What you won’t find in our program are “meal replacements,” medications that only work while you are taking them and produce side effects, shakes, or supplements you have to be taking forever. This program teaches you what foods to eat for your genetics. It teaches you how to overcome your habits, how to have a better relationship with food and your body so you can live a healthy lifestyle.
The best way to learn more about what we do is to come into the office and meet with our team. We will spend the time necessary to create a plan that will work for you.
