Description

With Lishanna Emmert, DAOM and Certified Nutrition Consulant Madia Jamgochian

This class offers a presentation on Dr. Emmert's functional weight loss program. Come learn how this process utilizes a comprehensive blood panel to create a personalized meal plan for participants. There are no supplements, drugs, or exercise prescriptions, and patients typically lose half a pound to a pound a day eating three balanced meals.

With this process, patients have reported increased energy, less joint pain, better hormone function, and improved blood values for heart health and sugar handling. Lishanna offers ten follow-up visits to support patients on the journey to their ideal self.

The program Dr. Emmert offers has shown, through independent studies, that 65% of participants maintain their goal weight after one year. The personalized meal plan is based on individual tastes, and is appropriate for vegetarians and carnivores, as well as persons with food sensitivities or allergies. Attendants will have an opportunity to ask questions and explore if this approach is a good fit for them.

Class will end with a food demo led by Nutrition Consultant Madia Jamgochian.
