OWN Your Weight Loss

Advanced Bone & Joint

Some individuals will reach a point in their life when they decide “enough is enough.” Many events may lead a person to this decision. When being overweight and unhealthy holds you back from playing with your children, taking a walk with your spouse, shopping with your daughter, or playing golf with a friend, maybe it is time to make a change.

What is a Nutritionist?

A nutritionist works one-on-one with patients who may be trying to lose weight and eat healthy, wholesome foods.  A dietitian is like a nutritionist, but a nutritionist has extensive knowledge about how nutritional deficiencies can impact your health.  A dietitian focuses solely on modifying what you eat, while the nutritionist can incorporate a more holistic or whole-body approach to your health.  By working with a nutritionist, you will gain a better understanding about food and why it may be difficult for some people to make healthy choices. 

Delia, our Ideal Protein weight loss coach will work with you individually to evaluate your current nutritional status, eating habits, and food choices.  What you eat does reflect how you feel, and the wrong foods can make you feel sick.  Likewise, eating the right foods can prevent and sometimes reverse disease.  

What is Ideal Protein?

The Ideal Protein Method promotes fat loss while supporting muscle mass. It is a medically developed protocol for sensible weight loss with one-on-one personal support from a professional nutritionist. Learn more about the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method here.

Studies prove that maintaining a healthy weight contributes to individuals’ overall joint health. Your Advanced Bone & Joint physician may advise you to consider this program before having surgery.
