Losing weight is an incredibly difficult, and frustrating, battle. You spend countless time, energy, and money on the latest diets and products, only to be left with the same amount of weight, if not more, once it’s all said and done. And every year, you promise to try harder, do more, and dig deeper, only to falter in your efforts.
Dr. Tim Martin understands the exasperation that comes with weight loss, which is why he offers a medically supervised program that delivers long-lasting results to his clients in Abilene, Texas. There are no gimmicks or promises of instant weight loss. Instead, he guides you through a ketogenic nutritional program, Ideal Protein®, that helps you shed the pounds and sets you up for healthier living long into the future.
If you’d like to nail that New Year’s resolution this year, once and for all, explore how we can get you there through our medically supervised weight loss program.
What you’re up against
One of the worst things to happen to the health of our society was the advent of processed foods, which have turned the recommended food pyramid on its head. As we turn to more and more junk food that relies on carbs and fats to fill you up, we’re not only gaining weight as a nation, we’re losing critical vitamins and nutrients.
A walk down any convenience store aisle reveals row after row of processed foods that contain little nutritional value. Instead, the ingredients go straight to your bloodstream as glucose or into your tissue as fat.
Given this, it should come as no surprise that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 2 out of 3 Americans are considered to be overweight, with one-third tipping the scales into obesity.
As a general practitioner, Dr. Martin approaches weight loss from an evidence-based and health background, which means he helps you lose weight in a manner that helps change your body’s composition for long-term results and great health.
To accomplish this, he turns to the Ideal Protein program, a four-phase ketogenic weight and lifestyle management protocol that’s designed for safe and effective weight loss.
This approach to weight loss works with your body to get you to your goals and delivers what your body needs to function properly.
Your body relies on three sources of energy — carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Your body turns to carbohydrates first for its energy, leaving your protein and fat reserves second and third in line. Through our diet, we limit the amount of carbs you eat, bumping fat up the line. This means that when your body needs energy, instead of burning off carbs, it looks to protein and your fat stores for the energy it needs.
Rest assured, this isn’t one of those high-fat, low-carb diets. Instead, Ideal Protein encourages you to eat lean proteins that encourage metabolism, weight loss, and overall good health. The diet doesn’t leave you hungry or without the tools you need for healthy function. Rather, it adds them.
Dr. Martin and his team of weight loss specialists are with you every step of the way and monitor your progress as you go. Enough can’t be said about this critical oversight as you set up, and then meet, your goals along the way. This type of accountability and monitoring will keep you on track, allowing you to finally fulfill that New Year’s resolution.
