Our Theory of Weight Gain
At The Bluecoat Group, we believe weight gain is caused by hormonally mediated factors. It’s not as simple as “eat less, move more.” In other words, overweight is not a character failing!
Processed foods are known to be the major cause of hormonal changes that lead to fat storage.
OK, I believe you…now give me a pill for it. Or an injection.
Nah. You have to change the hormonal system. This means eating a satisfying, nutritious diet – not “going on a diet.” It’s a challenge – but we can help you. Call today, and start to lose a dress size – or two.
What do we ask of you?
Research findings pretty much agree that it takes three months to change bad habits for good ones.
In the first month of our journey, we focus on uncovering your nutritional priority and breaking down the barriers that have kept you from success.
In month 2, we move on to your secondary concerns, and add physical activity. This is important for toning your emerging slimmer, body. You will want to exchange your large size clothes for transitional clothes (from our clothes exchange), and consult one of our personal stylists to enhance the changes you’re making.
In month 3, we go into depth on behavioral modification, to make all these healthy changes permanent and self-sustaining.
