How does Begin with Wellness Weight Loss diet work?
The \nutritional support formula, by ChiroNutraceutical, is a natural dietary supplement that has been purposefully designed to go hand-in-hand with the doctor supervised Begin with Wellness Weight Loss Program. It contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, blood sugar stabilization, increase in metabolism and detoxification. When combined with a healthy and specific amounts and blends of low glycemic index, anti-inflammatory foods, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, The metabolic drops allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and uses it as energy when an individual consumes less calories than they burn in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specifically designed the metabolic drop formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins and cell salts for additional added benefit.
What sets this product apart from the rest?
Unlike lower grade products, you will not find this product being sold online or by other companies. We have worked with our formulation team to create only top-shelf nutritional dietary supplements. We do not import any ingredients from overseas. Like our other nutirional products, the Metabolic drops nutritional support formula is proprietary and uses nothing but high grade ingredients. Our unique formula has many advantages like added natural appetite suppressants, energy supplements, detoxification, lean muscle protection, and more. This proprietary formulation was designed to optimize the Begin with Wellness Weight Loss Program to the fullest. Patients frequently report to us that they feel much better and have less hunger issues while taking the ChiroThin formula than when they had tried other weight loss programs. That being said, our metabolic nutritional support formula has the highest quality and desired effects.
Will I get hungry?
While it is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days, this sensation will usually stop after 4-6 days. By the end of the first week you will find your servings to be satisfying. This is because the metabolic drop's proprietary formula is specifically blended with additional ingredients to aid in blood sugar stabilization as well as natural hunger and craving suppressors. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body is being given the substances it needs to more easily access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking 80-120 ounces of water per day will additionally act as an extra hunger suppressant and help keep your energy level high. As a “rule of thumb” the average person on the Begin with Wellness Weight Loss Program has plenty of energy and feels good while on the program.
Will my metabolism slow down on a low calorie diet?
It is true that when dramatically cutting back on calories, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This is what is referred to as “starvation mode”. “Starvation Mode” occurs because the body attempts to store the most calorie dense material, which happens to be fat (9cal/gm).
Won't I lose the same amount of weight on a low calorie diet?
While a person will lose weight while on a VLCD without the additional nutritional support provided by the Begin with Wellness formula, the body will rapidly go into “starvation mode”. Starvation mode is a protective function of the human body. When an individual consumes fewer calories than they consume over a prolonged period of time, the human body will actually slow down the metabolism, start burning muscle for energy, and attempt to store any fat that is consumed.
Will the Begin with Wellness metabolism drops interact with my medications?
The ingredients and dosages contained within the BWW nutritional support formula have not been shown to interact with any medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera.
How much weight will I lose on this program?
While weight loss will vary by person, most people, who adhere to the Doctor Supervised Begin with Wellness Weight Loss Program, have lost between 20-35 pounds on the 42-day program. Everyone is different. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have, how much weight needs to be lost, and your adherence to the Begin with Wellness Weight Loss Program.
Does the weight loss slow down after the first two weeks?
Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a gradual slowing of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.
Can I skip a meal or a protien at one of my meals?
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never skip any of your meals. It’s important to eat all of your allotted food. It is especially important that you consume the full portions of protein. Additionally, do not move portions of food from one meal to the next.
Can I exercise daily?
While on the Begin with Wellness Weight Loss program we only recommend light exercise if you desire. 20 minutes of low intensity walking is acceptable. When exercising, the body burns calories. Because the body is not able to metabolize fat as fast as it is burned with exercise, you have a significantly greater chance for injury due to rapid onset fatigue. We simply ask that you give us 42 days with minimal exercise. Once you are done with the 42 days, we strongly encourage exercising.
