Weight Loss Q & A

Knecht Chiropractic Clinic

What causes weight gain?

Eating a diet filled with too much sugar and saturated fats increases the risk of gaining weight. This type of diet, which typically includes a lot of processed foods, results in high amounts of insulin that remain in the body instead of being used for energy. These higher amounts of insulin production can lead to very low blood sugar levels, which can cause cravings for foods with sugar. Giving into these cravings on a regular basis then leads to weight gain. Dr. Knecht offers a program that helps curb these cravings.

Why is it hard to lose weight?

Some patients have trouble losing weight when they don’t fully understand what causes weight gain. They might not eat the right types of foods, or they might include too many foods that lead to weight gain. Following an unhealthy diet filled with saturated fats and sugar can make it difficult to break the cycle of weight gain, even with exercise. Dr. Knecht makes sure that patients understand why they’re gaining weight and how to stop it.

What weight loss services does Dr. Knecht offer?

Dr. Knecht helps patients achieve weight loss with the Ideal Protein program. This program, which is medically designed, offers a high protein diet for effective weight loss. The Ideal Protein program also teaches patients how to eat healthy food, so they can keep excess weight off after losing it.

How does Ideal Protein work?

Ideal Protein trains the body to live off of its own fat stores. Instead of using carbs for energy, the body uses fat reserves for energy. Patients who take the Ideal Protein program under Dr. Knecht’s guidance learn to limit foods with carbs, which causes the body to use up fat for energy instead of sugar from carbs. Ideal Protein includes foods that are high in protein. These foods are high-quality ones, which improves their absorption rate. Eating these high-protein foods ensures that the body burns fat while leaving muscle mass intact.

What can patients expect from Ideal Protein?

Dr. Knecht helps patients learn to eat healthy foods and avoid certain types of foods that are high in sugar and saturated fat. They also receive one-on-one coaching, which provides them with additional education on nutrition and weight loss.
