Weight Loss and Nutrition Q & A

When do I need help with weight loss?

If you’re struggling to stay in a healthy weight range or maintain a body mass index (BMI) of less than 25, you might need some help with weight loss. It’s important to know, however, that weight loss isn’t just about being overweight or having a high BMI.

Weight is a major factor in many chronic conditions, like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. By managing your weight, you can reduce your risk for these conditions. In some cases, you can even treat your condition without medication or reverse your condition.  

What is the best method of weight loss?

The SYNC team believes that the best method of weight loss is a highly individualized program that addresses the root cause of weight gain. The team takes many aspects of your health and wellness into account as they design a weight loss program that can give you sustained results. 

Some of the pathways to weight loss commonly include:

Nutritional counseling

Nutritional counseling emphasizes a balanced diet, portion control, and reducing processed and high-calorie foods.

Professional-grade supplements

Professional-grade supplements and herbs can improve weight loss while enhancing other aspects of wellness, like your energy level. Green tea extract, chromium, and garcinia cambogia are examples of helpful herbs and supplements.

Physical activity

As integrative medicine practitioners, the SYNC team often recommends engaging in regular physical activity, particularly aerobic exercise and strength training, to speed up weight loss and enhance bodywide health.

Hormone optimization

Hormone optimization uses supplements, medication, diet, lifestyle, and other means of hormone balancing to help your body function better, improve your metabolism, and stimulate faster weight loss. 


Detoxification techniques like fasting, lymphatic drainage, and infrared sauna therapy can remove impurities and toxins while reducing inflammation and supporting weight loss efforts. 

In most cases, weight loss includes multiple pathways so you can achieve optimal results and maintain your lesser weight. 

How will my weight loss plan work?

SYNC uses comprehensive metabolic markers to uncover underlying problems that led to weight gain. The team then designs a highly personalized weight loss program, with input from you to make sure the plan suits your life and goals.
