Macronutrients for a Healthy Diet

Posted on

Dr. Kathy Maupin and Brett Newcomb continue their discussion on how Biobalance Health is using the latest medical research to customize effective weight-loss counseling for their patients.

This week, Brett Newcomb and I are continuing a discussion about the diet programs available at BioBalance Health. We attended a medical convention in Florida recently and had an opportunity to listen to Dr. Steven Masley talk about diets and genetic testing. Today, we are continuing that conversation and will focus on some specific recommendations regarding strategies to lose weight and stay healthy whether or not you are a candidate for Hormone Replacement.

These recommendations include undergoing testosterone pellet replacement, maintaining a healthy individual diet, exercising 3-5 times a week, and taking supplements and medically-proven weight loss drugs that are specific to your individual needs.

BioBalance Health has developed a dynamic new weight loss program as an ancillary to our hormone replacement services. We contend that you can live longer, healthier, and happier lives through replacing your hormones (if you are a candidate for that procedure) and maintaining a healthy diet for your genetic structure. There is now adequate and affordable testing to determine the kinds of foods that are genetically optimal for you. Choosing the right diet, when combined with a reasonable exercise program, can position you for the most effective approach to avoiding illness and to living healthy.

Sometimes, the focus is on the content of what you eat, and sometimes it is on the preparation. For instance, we recommend that you eat a lot of dark green leafy vegetables, but that you do not boil or leach all the nutrients out of them by overcooking them. It is healthy to learn to appreciate or habituate eating cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, etc. If you just can’t stomach those, you can still get the nutrients you need by taking an affordable supplement called DIM. If you are interested in learning about this and the other approaches that we recommend in the podcast, you can call BioBalance Health and make an appointment for weight-loss counseling.

We can also test your genetics for the ideal diet for your body’s metabolism, as well as the inborn pitfalls that you should avoid. For example, did you know being hungry all the time is genetic? With these tools and the use of weight-loss drugs, we can design a specific plan tailored to your genetics and your optimal health.
In our podcast, we also discuss other diet ingredients such as what sweeteners are the safest and the best snacks to sustain blood sugar—such as unsalted nuts. We talk about eating berries of all types and ways to prepare them. We talk about different ways to prepare foods to make them healthier for you, and specific types of food to avoid such as fried foods, gravies, and processed cheeses.

You can go to Jenny Craig and struggle to lose weight for months—at more than $450 per month—and gain it back when you stop eating their food; or you can change your habits and use medications to help lose weight  for a lifetime. The choice is yours.
