What is Science Based Weight Loss?
The Science Based Weight Loss program benefits from our 27 years of functional medicine and clinical nutrition practice, with thousands of patients. We combine this “real world” experience with the most current peer reviewed scientific research on the subjects of human metabolism, hormonal physiology, and nutrition. The result is the most sophisticated and effective weight loss protocols available today.
What is the main goal of Science Based Weight Loss?

There are numerous methods that can be used to as part of a Science Based Weight loss protocol to lower insulin levels and achieve lasting weight loss. Some of the most effective strategies are: Low carbohydrate diets, ketogenic diets, intermittent fasting, time restricted eating, alternate day fasting, extended fasting, broth fasting, fat fasting, and water fasting. These strategies can be mixed and matched, or applied in stages, in order to achieve the best possible weight loss outcomes.
Does Science Based Weight Loss need to be customized to fit each persons needs?
Yes, every Science Based Weight Loss protocol should be tailored to meet the unique needs of each person. There are of course many commonalities inherent to metabolism and nutrition that apply to all human beings, but genetic individuality must always be taken into consideration when designing weight loss protocol.
Are other factors involved in customizing a Science Based Weight Loss protocol?
Yes, in addition to the genetic individuality mentioned previously, factors including; age, weight, overall health status, and medications, must be considered. Additionally, lifestyle factors such as: family and job responsibilities, stress, sleep, and exercise all play a role in customizing a Science Based Weight Loss protocol.
