Metabolic Weight Loss 

There are many reasons why people have difficulty, or simply can’t, lose weight. What if you’ve been doing all the right things and you STILL can’t shed the excess pounds?  This weight-loss program using a low-calorie ketogenic diet is our most popular, most sought after, and in my opinion the most EFFECTIVE weight-loss program we offer.  This program is my go-to for those patients who have tried various diets without success because this diet succeeds where all others have failed.

Now What? Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a name for a cluster of biochemical and physiological abnormalities associated with the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.  These include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, hypoglycemia, Elevated A1C, High triglycerides, low vitamin D, and increased BMI.  The two most important components are central obesity (weight around your mid-section) and pre-diabetes (high blood sugar).

Our Approach to Weight Loss and Metabolic Syndrome

Our approach is different than other weight-loss programs in the marketplace because we take into consideration 4 very important factors that research and studies have identified that slow metabolism and cause people to gain & store fat:  (1) Poor Digestion and Absorption of nutrients from foods, (2) Low Vitamin D levels, (3) Stress on the Adrenal system (actual metabolism issues), and (4) Increased Belly Fat (the most frustrating).  Did you know that belly fat is metabolically active contributing to hormone imbalance and receptor site resistance which PREVENT weight loss… This is why your previous attempts to lose weight have failed.

Our Program Addresses Any Digestive Issues…even hidden ones

Not all metabolic patients, but most, have one or more digestive symptoms including constipation, diarrhea, gas, acid reflux or heartburn, bloating, indigestion, and other digestive problems. The condition is seldom detected by medical professionals and symptoms are usually misdiagnosed as stomach problems, ulcers, acid reflux celiac disease, or irritable bowel syndrome. However, the underlying issue appears to be a mal-absorption problem caused by sensitivity to certain foods.  This program and supplement regimen addresses all of these issues and improves digestion and absorption of nutrients essential to healing the gut, achieving fat loss, and maintaining a healthy weight.

Our Program Also Focuses on Your Metabolism and Nutrient Levels

As nutrients become less and less available, the body begins to conserve energy and store body fat.   This is why exercise and dieting become less effective over time when these issues are not addressed.  We address these issues by testing Vitamin D levels and supplementing appropriately so that you are properly nourished.


Our Program Has the Answer to Breaking Down that Stored Body Fat

Central body fat is metabolically active, meaning your body will store hormones there which then influence your hormone and metabolic function in a negative way.  So, in order to improve metabolic function, you must burn stored central body fat…but since that fat “reacts” to diet and exercise by causing you to store more body fat, it becomes a vicious cycle.  Our Program puts an end to this vicious cycle

To break this cycle, our program utilizes a sublingual fat mobilizer that helps speed up fat catabolism. With the correct diet, this fat mobilizer helps burn stored central body fat from the hips, waist, and thighs to be used for fuel.  When you burn fat for fuel, your body produces ketones which give you energy and suppresses your appetite.

This process is also thought to re-set the hypothalamus, thus re-setting your metabolism, so there is no need to take it long-term. Once you reach your goal weight, its use is discontinued, because once the central body fat is gone, it no longer has any negative influence on your metabolism and no more yo-yoing of your weight.

All aspects of our weight loss program in Fort Myers are geared toward promoting only fat loss, maintaining muscle mass, and improving nutrition.  During the maintenance phase (days 31-60), Dr. Hoch teaches you how to maintain your weight loss and how to adopt lifestyle and dietary changes so that you can maintain your weight loss, healthy habits, and good nutrition for your lifetime.

The premise of the Metabolic Weight Loss Program is three-fold:

  • A person can consume a nominal amount of calories while using the supplements and fat mobilizer, lose weight and not be hungry.
  • The protocol tends to rid the body of “abnormal” fat rather than sub-cutaneous or organ-cushioning fat
  • Patients will typically keep the weight off for an extended period of time rather than immediately re-gaining it as with other diets.
