The first temperature drop of the year is usually when people start to think about their health and fitness again. There’s nothing like pulling out last year’s jeans or leggings and trying to wiggle into them for the first time in months that reminds us to hit the gym. This year, lose a few extra pounds with the help of Corridor-based Equilibrium Weight Loss and Longevity. This program comes highly recommended, as it recently won the 2017 Addison Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards for Favorite Weight Loss Program/ Clinic! We sat down with Jon Green, general manager at Equilibrium to talk about the clinic and what makes it unique.
“We are honored to have been selected by your readers as the 2017 Readers’ Choice Award Winner in the weight loss category,” said Green. “While we frequently receive many generously kind and warming social reviews from our patients, we are always welcome to any positive accolade like this one from the readers of Addison Magazine.”
Equilibrium offers several safe and effective weight loss programs. Specialists will conduct an assessment of each client to determine his or her goals, health concerns, and goal weight loss number and time frame. This program is tailored to meet your needs and lifestyle, making it easier to stick with. They will provide the tools necessary to be successful, teach you ways to look and feel better, and conduct tests that provide data about your body’s functioning.
“Equilibrium is unique because we offer numerous medical and non-medical protocols and solutions for our patients to achieve a healthy bodyweight,” explained Green. “Over the years, and having treated tens of thousands of patients across our four locations, we have learned that every patient has different lifestyles and bodyweight goals. Having the numerous different protocols to offer our patients challenges the clinic staff to best interpret patients’ needs and match a program to them. Often, a patient may use several different protocols on their weight loss journey with Equilibrium.”
The medical providers at Equilibrium have expertise in many different pharmaceuticals, which are levers in losing body fat quickly, according to Green. The pharmaceuticals are then paired with a diet plan. During this process, the health coaches will motivate and assist patients in their weight loss journey.
“Another unique aspect to Equilibrium is the fact that we do not offer meal replacements, nor do we sell food,” said Green. “We instruct and encourage our patients to eat non-processed, whole foods. While the patient may initially be focused on macro-nutrients, like carbs, fat and proteins, as the patient achieves his or her goal weight, we transition the dialogue and focus on a micro-nutrient rich diet, with vitamins, minerals and trace elements. This prepares our patients to leave our care after having completed a successful program.”
The services offered at Equilibrium can be broken down into four parts: medical weight loss, lab testing, hormone therapy and nutritional programs. The medical weight loss options include Belviq®, Contrave® and vitamin B12 injections. The lab testing options include adrenal and cortisol stress test to see if stress could be a reason you aren’t losing weight; genetic testing to see which program will work best for you, and a micronutrient assessment to see if you are getting the right nutrients. The hormone therapy options include the hCG medical weight loss diet, a medically supervised diet program, hormone replacement therapy and human growth hormone peptides.
The nutritional programs include the hc3 ™Low Carb Lifestyle Program, which covers the basics on what to eat, how to exercise and nutritional supplementation – something that we all could use a refresher on every now and then. It’s based on the science of nutritional ketosis, which forces your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates. In turn, this will help make you less hungry and will sculpt your body and protect against muscle loss. Another nutritional program is called the detoxification diet, which works to detox your body from environmental toxins that can cause weight gain. The 10-day program will work to reboot your metabolism. The last program is called emotional eating, which works to address why you eat emotionally and helps you stop.
In the future, they will also offer a fasting-mimicking diet program with proven science around its longevity enhancing attributes.
“In a small gesture to acknowledge our gratitude to your readers, we want to offer during the month of October, a one-week trial of hCG, our most popular medical fat loss protocol for $129,” said Green. “Just mention Addison Magazine when you call 877-319-0777 for an appointment.”
