After helping several hundred members lose cumulatively thousands of pounds, doctors are relying more and more on LightenUp Lifestyle as their recommended weight loss program. Here are the three primary reasons why we are the doctor recommended weight loss program.
No Supplements or Meal Replacement Shakes Sold
At LightenUp, we believe a path to a healthier you is not about spending hours in the kitchen preparing a meal,
isolating yourself from family and friends or consuming expensive supplements or meal replacement shakes. We believe that a healthy diet is gained through smart food shopping and meal preparation. These meals can be enjoyed with your friends and family. LightenUp offers grocery store tours and cooking demos. Members learn to shop, prep and cook in a way that fits the lifestyle they want to live. This is one of the reasons we are a doctor recommended weight loss program.
Educating, not Dictating
Another reason we are a doctor recommended weight loss program is that we believe in this proverb, “Give a man [or woman] a fish and you feed him [or her] for a day. Teach a man [or woman] to fish and you feed him [or her] for a lifetime.” Learning a new lifestyle is not about giving you a meal plan and generic how-to-steps. Learning a new lifestyle is about developing a personalized framework that allows you to navigate through lifestyle change on your own terms and in your own way.
Promoting a Lifestyle vs. Weight Loss Target
You may have sat through a presentation that asks you how much weight you want to lose and in how long. Sometimes we do exactly what they tell us to do. Make progress. Possibly, reach our goal weight, then what? In a lifestyle improvement process, you learn about the lifestyle you need to live when you finally reach your goal weight. At LightenUp, we start teaching you how to live the lifestyle you want to weigh on day one. Read “Stop Thinking Weight Loss and Start Thinking Lifestyle Change” to gain a detailed understanding of the differences. Through LightenUp’s process, our members find the program much easier than any other weight loss program they have experienced.
