Phase 2: Behaviour
After teaching you the essentials of nutrition we begin to work with you on the behaviours that not only have caused your weight gain, but those that have thwarted your past efforts to lose weight or maintain your previous weight loss. We all know that we eat not just when we're hungry and this phase is designed specifically to deal with those times. After reviewing your blood work drawn during phase one and ensuring there are no medical contributors to your weight you will begin working one on one with our physicians where you will review food logs, and more importantly any challenges you might be facing in making lifestyle changes, that will help shape your strategy going forward. Strategies that are not just focused on food, but rather on how to deal with life’s many hiccups that have a direct or indirect impact on your weight.
In addition to working with our specially trained physicians, you will also have a 45 minute class with our clinical psychologist that focuses on the "9 Major Road Blocks of Losing Weight". Using the latest evidence based principles of psychology we will help you learn defensive strategies for those thoughts that have sabotaged what started off as the best of intentions. This is where you will learn to take control.
