Metagenics for Weight Loss
Your thoughts on Metagenics for weight loss?
A: Yeah, no. Definitely no. My philosophy on weight loss is very much about balance, nutrition, vegetables and protein, and foods that are as nourishing as possible.
Health shakes are not healthy. Things like Juice Plus, Herbalife, and Isagenix are highly toxic, highly processed, and full of genetically modified rubbish chemicals. It’s literally made in a lab and full of chemicals, definitely not in your best interest!
In our clinic, we absolutely will use certain herbal medicines and nutritional supplementation that are practitioner only and that are going to definitely impact fertility in a profound and positive way. However, we don’t recommend any of these types of health shakes because they’re not going to be healthy. I mean do you really think that you’re going to get all the goodness of vegetables and fruit from a capsule?
See through the clever marketing because I had a patient this week email to say “Oh, my gosh! I’m going to stop doing my lemon drink and do this Isagenix drink instead. What do you think?” I was like, “You’ve got to be joking, right? Are you hearing all the things that I’m telling you guys.” Don’t do it.
While vegetable juices and smoothies can have a place, alone they cannot form the basis of a balanced diet, because you’re not getting the nourishment, the nutrition that you need for optimizing egg and sperm quality and of course, for the development of a healthy baby. Food beats everything else, every single time. Do that. Do real food.
Our food philosophy is an eclectic mix of paleo meats, raw meats, body ecology, with a good dose of Weston A. Price and Nourishing Traditions, fresh and packed full of flavour. We tend towards gluten-free, with a little dash of sheep’s or goats’ dairy allowed. We prefer stevia, maple syrup, and coconut sugar over conventionally refined sugar and our main meals are based on vegetables and protein.
Fertility food education is about empowering people to create the best of health as well as optimum fertility, and truly healthy babies through whole food nutrition.
