Why can’t I lose weight?

There are a number of factors that influence your weight. If you’re having difficulty losing weight despite following a healthy diet and exercise plan, underlying issues may be working against you. Dr. Joyce evaluates your current health habits and goals to find any underlying causes negatively affecting your weight.

Underlying causes can include:

  • Slow metabolism due to age or genetics
  • Thyroid conditions
  • High levels of stress
  • Improper diet
  • Skipping meals
  • Lack of sleep

Dr. Joyce evaluates your daily exercise routine and diet and recommends the best course of treatment for successful weight loss.

What therapies are available for weight loss?

Dr. Joyce uses several weight loss therapies to facilitate long-term weight loss. He determines which therapy, or combination of therapies, is best for you based on your medical history and weight loss goals. The therapy options Dr. Joyce uses for weight loss include detoxification, Metagenics®, and treatment of metabolic disorders.

What is detoxification?

A detox diet is an effective way to speed up weight loss and remove harmful toxins from your body. During the detox process, you eliminate certain foods from your diet for several days. Gradually, you reintroduce these foods back into your regular diet to see how they affect your weight and overall health.

Through Dr. Joyce’s detox plan, you eliminate harmful toxins from the body to improve your health. Toxins found in some foods and in the environment can stay and build up in your lymphatic and digestive systems. These toxins trigger health problems, like frequent headaches and chronic fatigue. By eliminating certain foods from your diet, you cleanse these toxins from your system. Dr. Joyce helps you identify the foods that have a negative impact on your weight and overall health.

What is Metagenics®?
