Weight Loss Webinar-A Functional Medicine Roadmap

Weight Loss Webinar-A Functional Medicine Roadmap

Nearly 75% of adults aged 20 years and older are overweight or obese while 88% of Americans are metabolically unhealthy. Knowing this, it’s probably no surprise the top 3 goals people set for themselves each year include exercise more, eat healthier, and lose weight. We know that losing excess weight can reduce your risk for heart disease, diabetes, reduce pain, improve mood, mobility, sex drive, and overall energy! Yet, the unfortunate truth is that 80% of people that try losing weight with a strict diet will regain some, or all, of the weight they lost within one year.

Why aren’t weight loss efforts more successful?

There are a few main reasons that people report struggling to achieve their goals:

  1. Loss of motivation or “willpower”
  2. Being too busy
  3. Lack of social support
  4. Poor resilience in the face of setbacks
  5. Change of goals/priorities


I would also argue that a significant reason for unfulfilled weight loss goals is a lack of understanding how the human body functions, and all the silent factors working against us. When it comes to weight loss, calories in vs. calories out is an outdated approach. Motivation and willpower are simply not enough. Motivation may be important to get you started, but it takes much more than that to see our goals come to fruition. To be successful long-term, we must learn what’s interfering with our success, and here are some key culprits:

  • Inflammation
  • Hormone imbalances (e.g. high insulin)
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • “Obesogens” – chemicals that tell your body to store fat
  • Gut microbiome imbalances
  • Eating at the wrong times


The good news: there’s a roadmap you can follow that gets to the root causes of weight gain and improves your chances of losing weight that STAYS off! This roadmap is Functional Medicine which is a system of medicine that understands how our environment, genetics, beliefs, and lifestyle choices work together to either create health or disease. I used the principles of Functional Medicine to create a comprehensive, self-paced webinar that teaches you how to lose excess weight and create optimal health for good!

By the end of the webinar, you will understand:

  • The top 4 root causes of weight gain
  • 5 effective dietary strategies for weight loss
  • Additional root causes of weight gain and strategies for loss
  • How to track important body measurements
  • How to create SMART goals for long-term success


Along with the webinar, you will also receive a 7-day sample meal plan to help you put all my recommendations together in a practical, delicious way. So don’t wait!
