At Lifelong Metabolic Center, we understand how important it is to be counseled on nutrition. We will give you specific lists of foods for our early jump-start phases and slowly work other foods into the program and your life. Our lifelong plan consists of all food groups, but with guidance as to what “moderation” will look like for you. We believe that accountability, encouragement, and proper supplementation are the keys to making our program a success.
In our clinic, you will receive an initial consultation, ongoing accountability-daily in some phases, weekly or monthly in others, and either an in-office visit or FaceTime visit on days 21, 41, and 63 of each round of care.
The high level of accountability is both for you as the patient to encourage you along the way, but this also allows Dr. Borre to get to know your body and weight loss patterns. With the daily texting, plans can be adjusted quickly for greater success.
At Lifelong Metabolic Center, we ask for a personal health history, diet background, and for family history in our initial consultation. We use this information to make certain we have the right program for you. We reach out to your primary physician once you commit to the program to assure co-treatment whenever possible. It’s good to have a team of Drs. working with you!
Our program is a four- phase system. We first complete the initial consultation and then put the kit needed in your hands. You will receive an instruction manual, food journal, and the necessary supplements on the first day.
The first phase is simply a fat-loading day to prepare your body and get 24 hours of the great nutritional supplementation prior to starting the next phase.
Our second phase includes 40 days where you will have a specific plan of proteins, fruits, and vegetables from our approved foods list. They are all anti-inflammatory and low glycemic. This helps to keep your blood sugar and insulin steady, so you do not experience spikes and dips in energy levels. We want you to not only feel good once you are done with the plan, but we want you to feel amazing WHILE you are on the plan as well. During this phase, you will text Dr. Borre daily every morning as soon as you weigh. This allows for a daily counsel on your nutrition. Expected weight loss for this phase is around 20 lbs. for our typical female and a bit more for males. When you follow the advice and instruction exactly, you can get some amazing results! This is why regular communication is key in this phase.
Our third phase expands to 6 meals per day off of the approved foods list for 21 days. We want to encourage your body to tighten, tone, and firm during this portion, so you will be eating frequently for a natural metabolic burn. We purposely slow down the weight loss in this phase. You can expect to lose between 3-5 lbs. Texts go to Dr. Borre weekly on Mondays.
The final phase is phase four. This is where you follow your DNA report recommendations along with monthly coaching from Dr. Borre. The coaching includes a new food journal along with the preferred foods and those that should be eaten sparingly. The DNA report gives the right range for your exercise “score” or MET. It also includes a list of common exercises and what their MET values are. Dr. Borre will walk you through the process of designing a good food and exercise plan to fit the requirements of your report. As you can see, the nutritional counseling is very important and has a place in each and every phase of this program.
You can use the information given during the coaching sessions not only for success while on the program, but the tips, tricks, and hacks can be used for LIFE to help you keep the weight off.
During the Lifelong Metabolic Center program, we work on poor habit replacements, draft reminders of why you started the program and post around your environment, and take “before” (sometimes “in progress”) and “after” photos to help keep you motivated and moving forward.
We know that weight loss can be a very personal journey. We take the emotional side of this equation very seriously. We also put great stock in the science behind our program. We take the data collected during our coaching and use it to help best motivate you to success. Once Dr. Borre has had a chance to get to know your body and life patterns, then she can best apply this to making your LMC program the absolute best it can be!
Dr. Borre is a natural encourager and loves to educate her patients on nutrition, exercise, and general health based on your one-on-one interactions throughout this entire process.
