We provide Turn-Key Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Counseling Programs® for doctors’ practices focusing on lifestyle, metabolism, and healthy supermarket food for weight loss, medical or nutrition goals, based on individual food preferences. Since 1989 we work with over 900 physicians, specialists, chiropractors, naturopaths, alternative health providers and corporations that are interested in introducing a credible nutrition program to their practice, fine-tuning or elevating their existing nutrition program. We train and support doctors to be clinically and economically successful by providing credible nutrition counseling to their patients and communities.
Using our patented, research validated, professional Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Analyzer; your assistant can teach your patients how to incorporate whole, healthy, readily available, supermarket foods with long term behavior modification for most disease, pre-disease and wellness protocols.
The difference between our program and most nutrition counseling programs is our disease specific meal planning software is specific for the body composition, metabolism, activity level, lifestyle and food preferences of the patient.
Nutritional compliance is significantly improved and patients prefer not to have to purchase diet products, supplements, bars etc. Many healthcare practices perform body composition and metabolic testing, but very few doctors, chiropractors dietitians, nutritionists, naturopaths correlate disease specific meal plans with local supermarket foods based on patients food preferences in less than 3 min.
The Lifestyle Nutritional Metabolic Counseling Program is less expensive to patients and more profitable to their owners.
Our goal is to advance your practice nutritionally, assist you in becoming a more effective health care provider, increasing practice revenues and generating significant new patient referrals while creating loyal, happy, healthy patients and setting you apart from other doctors in your community.
The Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Analyzer and meal plan software will allow your assistant to quickly create a sliding scale (carbohydrate, fat, & protein) nutrition program that is individualized for each patient’s lean muscle mass, age, activity level, metabolism and food preferences, lifestyle factors and medical needs recommending widely available foods. We provide both CONVENTIONAL and INTEGRATIVE meal plans for more than 30 disease specific clinical meal plans.
Whether patients purchase organic food at Whole Foods or shop at Wal-Mart, Costco or regular grocery stores we provide weekly goals, shopping lists, meal plans and nutritional information based on their preferences and lifestyle. We Get Specific We provide the specific name brands of foods to purchase because many foods vary in nutritional quality.
Our individualized approach results in increased compliance, happier patients and better outcomes.
“Generic Diet Sheets do not work, they are too general and patient compliance is low.”
As a busy Holistic Chiropractor practicing for many years. I do not have the time to make up a nutrition program and most programs are not flexible to accommodate my clinical philosophy and patient demographic.Now with the Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Analyzer and meal planning software I generate an additional $250 K annually with minimal involvement from me. My patients like knowing which specific foods to eat and patient compliance is improved because they are not hungry with cravings anymore. Most Chiropractors in my are selling supplements so I get a significant amount if referrals into the practice from patients who have tried all the diet products, hormones and supplements.
As an Endocrinologist I am happy to finally provide my patients with a nutrition program that focuses on normal healthy food, personalized exercises while incorporating long – term lifestyle changes that are much more individualized than a booklet or diet sheet handout for my patients.Before my patients were not receptive and did not comply to my diet handouts and suggestions. Now my medical assistant provides our patients with specific food recommendations rather than just teaching the traditional carb gram counting or food group counting. Our patients like we can include specific Southern or ethnic foods in their meal plan. Now surprisingly, my patients are more receptive to changing their eating habits with the Lifestyle Metabolic approach to nutrition counseling.
It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for a wellness coach to make up a custom meal plan and perform the metabolic assessment.
I have been a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) for over 35 years. The owner of a Weight Loss & Detox Center in Denver and in 2010, Christopher Fuzy came to my office and trained me on his Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Counseling Program. We have used his program with a variety of clients for weight loss, weight gain, cancer, menopause, chronic fatigue, diabetes, cardiac, IBS, GI problems, sports nutrition, detoxification, vegan, ketogenic, holistic nutrition and many more.[show_more more=”Read More” less=”show less”]I am very happy using his metabolic analyzer, software, his training and support for the past 8 years. I looked at dozens of nutrition counseling programs at nutritional medical conventions and in scientific journals. Then I decided to implement the Lifestyle Nutrition Program in my clinic because it focuses lifestyle changes with normal healthy food and BEHAVIOR, NOT DIETING. Most other programs focus with dieting, diet products, meds, hormones, meal replacements, supplements etc.
Now I receive more referrals for the Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Counseling Program than my traditional Naturopathic counseling patients, people want to learn about eating real food, not just supplements.[/show_more]
The average cost for 20 pounds of weight loss in America is between $960-$1,600. Most programs are not physician supervised. and focus with diet products, medications, hormones, bars, or shakes according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
Packaged food programs cost patients approximately $4,600 to lose 20 pounds of weight loss. Typically, 50%-70% of revenues collected for diet products, food, medications, hormones etc. are paid for supplements.
Lifestyle Nutrition Counseling Programs generate between $295 and $3,800 for 12 week Executive Wellness Programs without selling products or additional services. Depending on a practices marketing, training and support needs, our Turnkey Nutrition Programs cost between $200 and $600 monthly. Typically, one patient per month can cover all costs of the program. A typical start up practice can anticipate a ROI of 2,000% and mid-size practices can experience ROI’s of 3000 – 6000% including new patient referrals.
More importantly, Anti-Aging and Lifestyle Counseling Programs based on patients incorporating real food are less expensive and more profitable for their owners. Behavioral lifestyle programs market well, and gain the respect from community and peers. Patients are less likely to revert back (relapse) to their old habits once they discontinue to purchase diet supplements or medications. HOWEVER, MANY OF OUR DOCTORS COMBINE OUR LIFESTYLE NUTRITION PROGRAMS WITH OTHER WEIGHT LOSS MODALITIES.
