Weight Loss

 

 

The Shake It Practitioner Weight Management Program (Shake It) is an easy to follow scientifically advanced, weight loss program that has been proven to be safe and combined with the qualified support and advice from Naturopath Cherie Caut, it is one of the most effective weight loss programs available in Adelaide. 

 

+ THE SCIENCE OF EFFECTIVE WEIGHT LOSS

Understanding the science behind weight loss and how to switch on fat metabolism is an important factor to success. The program offers two healthy eating plans to choose from (Ketogenic or Low Fat), and incorporates evidence-based exercise recommendations along with behavioural change strategies to help support lasting weight loss.

+ FAT LOSS AND MUSCLE MASS

Patients who have participated in this program have safetly lost fat mass, reduced weight, and improved their energy levels while preserving their muscle mass. After 12 weeks on the Shake It program patients have lost as much as 17.4kgs; almost 1.5kg per week. Most calorie-restricted diets may result in an excessive loss of muscle mass. The loss of muscle reduces your metabolic rate (ability to burn calories) and increases your likelihood of putting the fat back on (yo-yo dieting).

+ HEALTH ASSESSMENT AND GOALS

Our Naturopath will complete an individual health assessment that will help to determine your current health status in regards to how your weight may be impacting on your overall health, help you to set goals, and monitor your progress during your weight loss program.

+ STAYING FOCUSSED

Our Naturopath will help you stay focussed on your goal and journey. Dietary compliance is the biggest determinant of weight loss success. The program has plenty of supportive tools to help you succeed such as a food diary, recipe book, shopping lists, meal planner, tips to stay on track and tips for eating out.

+ ADDRESSING HORMONES, GUT MICROBIOME AND WEIGHT

Additionally, understanding the implications that elevated stress hormones, blood sugar imbalances and thyroid hypofunction can have upon weight loss is important to individual success. A healthy gut microbiome positively influences blood glucose balance, hunger signals, calorie intake, and energy (fat) storage. Addressing these factors can often be the missing link for many who are working hard on their diet and exercise but cannot seem to shift the weight.
