Woodstock GA - Weight LossWhen it comes to weight loss there is no such thing as a one size fits all approach.  Everyone’s body responds to exercise and calorie intake differently. This is because each person’s metabolism is different. You and a friend might eat the same diet, work out the same amount, live identical lifestyles and still achieve different weight-loss results. One may lose 10 pounds, while the other not only maintains their weight but even gains a pound. It may be your metabolism that’s keeping you from achieving your goal.

Resting metabolic rate, or RMR is dramatically different from one person to the next and can deeply affect how and why a person may gain or lose weight. RMR is the rate at which your body uses energy when you’re at rest. It measures energy use for basic bodily functions like circulation, breathing and digestion. Sixty-five to 75 percent of a person’s energy is expended at rest without taking into account the energy it takes to walk, talk, work or exercise.

At Innovative Health and Wellness in Woodstock offers Metabolic Testing that gives you the exact measurements you need to succeed. During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body consumed. This is how your metabolic rate is measured. Once completed, your metabolic rate will be used to calculate your Target Caloric Zones. These Zones provide powerful information to help you lose weight. Your Zones will show you how to eat the MAXIMUM amount of food and still lose weight. Your body will be healthy, happy, and satisfied.

With this information our team can then work with you to create a customized Medical Weight Loss Program that includes –

  • Successful weight loss under medical supervision, without hunger
  • Keeps the weight off without the need for constant dieting
  • Changes your lifestyle – feel great, have more energy, live better
  • Individualized nutrition and exercise programs
  • Take charge of your future and your health

    I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

    “Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

    “I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
