Avoiding Weight Gain After a Very-Low Calorie Diet
Posted by The ChiroThin Team on Thursday, July 23, 2015  -Re-posted (with additions) by Dr. Sarah Corcoran, July 27, 2015

If you just successfully completed the ChiroThin Weight-Loss program, congratulations! You have accomplished your goals and now it’s time to face the next one: keeping the weight off by creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It’s very important that you remain open to adopting new dietary habits and to refrain from your old ones. ChiroThin will help you through this process by providing you with a maintenance program, and guiding you throughout your health journey. Although your diet will not be as strict as in the active ChiroThin phase, it will still be more limited than how you were eating before you started our program. Here are a couple of tips to help you continue seeing success even after you’ve completed the active phase.

The first step is to consult with your doctor and create a maintenance plan. The ChiroThin program includes counseling and diet advice once you have completed the restricted diet plan. Our ChiroThin approved doctors really care about your progress and want you to succeed in all of your weight loss goals.  According to the American Society for Clinical Nutrition, you must undergo behavioral changes before you go back on a regular diet. “Very-low-calorie diets (VLCDS) cause rapid weight loss. However, weight regain is rapid upon discontinuing the VLCD unless lifestyle is altered. The addition of behavioral modification (BMOD) program improves the long-term outcome.” In other words, you will have to be willing to make some long-term changes to see long-term results, and that’s why our doctors are here to assist during the process!
Even if you’re completely satisfied with the results and are no longer interested in losing more weight, respecting the after phase of the program is equally as important as or even more so than the active phase. It’s imperative to be as disciplined with this more lenient diet as it’s very easy to gain back the weight. You will be given a very specific diet plan that will be adapted to your needs and you must remember that skipping meals is not an option. Also consult with your doctor about becoming more active. While you were in the ChiroThin, you had to limit your physical activity but now that you’re coming off of it, exercising is important.

It may seem redundant to change your lifestyle after you completely changed yourself, but isn’t that the end goal? You proved you have the willpower to drastically change your life, so now it’s time to take those skills you adapted and put them to a lifestyle that will only benefit you. The American Society for Clinical Nutrition mentions some of the differences you will have to make in order to successfully keep your weight-off, “The major components of a BMOD program to alter lifestyle are education about nutrition and eating habits with alteration of amount and patterns of eating, institution of an aerobic activity program designed to increase energy expenditure, training in self-awareness and assertiveness, and training in coping techniques for long-term alteration of lifestyle.” Making educated, and health conscious decisions that will only promote your success, not deteriorate it.

Completing the ChiroThin provides you with a sense of accomplishment and huge reward when you see the changes you’ve made. Make sure you don’t see all of your hard work go to waste! Consult your Chirothin approved doctor who will provide you with the plan that is right for you.

The headline below struck me and intreged me to read on….At Wicked Good Chiropractic I am alsways leading our team to do just that…Customer Service is supposed to be first. When I worked at Starbucks I did get a lot of training on what they called “3rd place”. That is what I want for our office. 3rd Place is: You have 3 places you feel comfortable: 1. your home, 2. your work & 3. (put place here); of course with Starbucks it was your coffee shop…but here we hope you chose Wicked Good Chiropractic.

This is an interesting read by Joshua Rosethal from Integrative Nutrition.

PS~We (Rebecca & Dr. Sarah) will be enrolling after our Re-certification with Metagenics as Lifestyle Educators….

Why is it that you get treated so much better at Starbucks than at the doctor’s office?

You walk up to the counter, the barista politely offers you dozens of options, and answers all of your questions.

Doctors, on the other hand, rush because the healthcare system forces them to see so many patients each day. They barely look up from their clipboards, ask a few routine questions, and then send you on your way.

That’s pretty crazy! Have you ever experienced that for yourself?

That’s why I knew I had to send you this blog post about how Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches are leading the revolution in the healthcare system. And not a minute too soon, because the existing system is unspeakably bad. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

A few years ago, almost nobody in the general population knew what a Health Coach was. Now, step-by-step, there is growing awareness about the incredible need for Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches

I’m committed to doing everything I can to ensure that as a school, we continue to lead this revolution. We’re constantly innovating our curriculum to provide the best possible education with superior teachers. Our educational partnerships provide ongoing enrichment opportunities for our graduates.

In addition to all that, there are national health coaching certification standards that are moving through various levels of government. I’m deeply involved in accelerating this process and ensuring that our graduates stay at the forefront of this emerging profession

The epidemic of chronic disease is very serious, but it’s important to stay positive. You can play an important role by spreading the word about Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches and how we are making the world a healthier, happier place.

The main thing to see is that we are at the forefront of a huge wave that’s coming to replace the existing medical monopoly. Together we are strong!

To your future,

Joshua Rosenthal
Founder, Director and Primary Teacher

Welcome to the Wicked Good Wellness Blog. Information and education is so important in health. At Wicked Good we try to continue to help educate our clients with the latest and greatest of research on health and healthy habits.


Here is a link to a research article that proves that Chiropractic care is more effective than Medical care. After following subjects with 3 different type of therapies 94% had less pain and less debilitation after just 2X per week for 4 weeks of chiropractic manipulation therapy.


In Response to the FDA Crackdown on HCG Companies

BEWARE of Buying Products From The Internet!!!!

New Update on the FDA (12/15/2011):

The FDA and FTC have indicated the kinds of language that can trigger these concerns and potential enforcement actions within the letters they sent to the 7 companies manufacturing and distributing OTC (over-the counter) and online.  Some of the keywords are “Permanent Weight Loss,” and “Lose 30 Pounds In 26 Days,” –  In essence, referencing specific amounts of weight loss in a specific amount of time.

You will notice that these keywords have been removed from these advertisements and we’ll continue to avoid them into the future.  You’ll notice our new tagline is “6 Weeks To A New You.” Begin using this new tag line in all print ads and external marketing.

Our Company did NOT get a letter, although they have updated all marketing “wording” associated with the product.

Good Morning ChiroHCG Doc’s,

By now many of you have probably heard rumors or read articles stating that Homeopathic HCG has been pulled off the market by the FDA.  This is not accurate!

On Tuesday (12/6/2011), 7 large on-line sellers of HCG received notification that they are to stop selling their HCG products.  From what we can discern, it appears that the issue is marketing related due to some of the statements the on-line retailers are making and the fact that there is no physician involved in the recommendation, administration and/or supervision of the individual while recommending a VLCD.

Neither our manufacturer nor ChiroNutraceutical have received the above mentioned letter.  Because of this, we are still able to manufacture and ship our formula.

If you are still concerned, please know that we have had the formulation for a hormone-free version of our product for nearly 9 months.  This formulation does not use any form of HCG in the manufacturing process and the finished product does not contain HCG.  I have instructed our manufacturer to begin production of this formula and it should be “bottle ready” in 2-4 weeks, should you wish to begin using this formula in your office.

So you are aware, it has been 1 year to the day since the FDA made their last comments regarding homeopathic HCG.  As I said last year, the FDA has always frowned upon anything that causes people to get healthier that Big Pharma cannot profit from.

Please know that we are staying on top of this matter and will do everything in our power to keep helping people live healthier and happier lives.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dr. Jason Strotheide
