When weight loss programs go wrong, it’s time to
call a doctor.

One of the biggest differences between NutriMost
and other weight loss programs is that NutriMost is supervised by a board
certified chiropractor. NutriMost requires practitioners to be board certified,
licensed, professionals. Not counselors. Not therapists. Not health coaches.
This is important, since weight loss and the wellness that can come from
chiropractic care go well together.
Medical supervision in a weight loss program is
extremely beneficial to patients because attaining and maintaining a healthy
weight for the long term involves changing the way a body works. A person who
has been educated and trained as a doctor understands the intricacies of the
human body and the transformative changes a person experiences during weight
loss. There are numerous examples of people who have tried diets or weight loss
programs and ended up having serious health issues. The results can be tragic.
In the late 70s, Robert Linn published a book
titled The Last Chance Diet. It was a bestseller that promoted a liquid
diet that was touted to be miraculous. Millions of people bought Linn's book
and tried his formula. The low calorie diet seemed to work wonders. But then
news of sudden deaths began to surface. Unfortunately, for some people, the Last
Chance Diet brought them to their last meals.
Dozens of other fad diets have come and gone.
Some have been absolutely crazy and some have been downright dangerous. Here
are a few examples.
The Twinkie Diet involved eating nothing but Twinkies. No need to worry about nutrients
that aren’t found in Twinkies. It’s hard to believe, but people actually tried
The Tapeworm Diet was based on getting tapeworms into the digestive tract where they
would go to work on behalf of the dieter. Unfortunately, some found out that an
untreated tapeworm infestation can be lethal.
The Baby Food Diet worked by substituting baby food for adult meals. Some people did lose
weight that way. However, they all eventually started eating like grownups
again. When they did, the pounds inevitably returned.
The Cotton Ball Diet involvedeating cotton balls before meals. The idea is that
they fill your stomach so you’re not hungry and don’t eat very much. In fact,
they may have caused some people to lose their appetites. The problem is that
cotton balls are not good for the digestive tract.
The Cigarette Diet was undoubtedly one of the most harmful diet fads of all time. In the
1920s, cigarette manufacturers actually promoted the weight-loss benefits of
smoking. Since smoking doesn’t involve taking calories in and since nicotine is
a stimulant, lighting up instead of eating actually could result in burning off
a few calories. However, we now know that it also leads to serious medical
conditions like heart disease and lung cancer.
When entering into a program, it is important to
understand doctor’s have been educated about how the body works and knows the
difference between a fad diet and a medically sound and effective weight loss
program. When it comes to matters of health, advice from family, friends, and other
non-professionals is usually worth what you pay for it.
Losing weight involves serious changes for the
body. For people who are investigating weight loss programs, one of the first
things to look into is whether or not the people running the program actually
know anything about how the body works. With NutriMost, that’s never an issue.
NutriMost is always supervised by a doctor.

Tracy Thomas and Dr. Jon Thomas
My interest in health started at an early age. My
life included BMX racing, professional snow skiing, water skiing, baseball,
weight lifting, and martial arts. While I was attending Life University in
Marietta, GA, I spent thousands of hours studying subjects such as
Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pathology, Embryology, Human Anatomy, Physiology,
X-ray, Diagnosis, Chiropractic Adjusting Techniques, Orthopedic Testing,
Physiotherapy, and Patient Care. I have also received advanced training in
Functional Neurology, 21st Century Intracellular Detoxification, Clinical Lab
Testing, Bio-nutrition, Nervous System Balancing, and Spinal Correction.
I’m a Board Certified Chiropractic Physician.
I’ve learned the practice of medicine from some of the top health experts in
the world. I specialize in Corrective Structural Care, Neck and Back Pain,
Extremity Function, Acute Pain Care, Sports Performance Enhancement, Sports
Injury, Anatomic Kinetics and Movement Patterns, Fat Loss, Hormonal and
Neurotransmitter Disruption Balancing.
I’ve had many patients who sincerely wanted to
lose weight and tried every program they could find. However, most never found
anything that worked until they found NutriMost. Many have experienced
incredible results with NutriMost. Losing twenty pounds, or more, in forty days
is not unusual at all. Losing weight doesn’t have to take forever, but it has
to be done properly. Otherwise, as so many fad dieters have discovered, the
weight is coming back.
I’m not just a practitioner. I’ve been on
NutriMost and I lost over 26 pounds in just over 40 days. My body fat level
dropped from 30% to just over 10%. I’ve seen similar results in my wife, my parents,
and her parents. Since bringing NutriMost to Jacksonville, I’ve been on a
mission to positively impact the health of everyone I meet. For a few examples,
check out the NutriMost Jacksonville testimonial page.
In this article, I have discussed the importance
of medical supervision for any weight loss program. Losing weight is a serious
transformation for anyone and it’s important to get proper medical advice when
you’re in the process of losing substantial amounts of weight. NutriMost
practitioners, like me, are board certified medical professionals.
