About Us

Why is the Sustain weight loss system better than other plans?

This system exceeds other plans in three essential ways:

  • Through protein supplementation, we preserve muscle mass which makes weight loss more efficient (i.e. consistent weight loss each week--no plateaus!)
  • Our one-on-one “virtual” meetings with dieters holding them accountable to adhere to the program.
  • Our emphasis on re-education on how and what to eat so that a healthy weight can be maintained.

What is the physiological basis of the diet?

The Science That You Really DO Need To Know
We believe in order to combat the obesity epidemic we must face the fact that our diets are too high in fats, but more importantly, too high in both simple and complex carbohydrates. Overconsumption of carbohydrates results in overproduction of insulin by our pancreas. Insulin not only helps to control our blood sugars but also tells our body to store fat. When we become obese often we have elevated insulin levels all of the time, even when fasting. This leads to insulin resistance in all of the cells of the body except the fat cells. The fat cells stay “open for business." The fat cells are then storing the fat we eat as fat but ALSO stores the carbohydrates (whether it’s sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, bread, or pasta, etc.) as FAT in the fat cells.

How does the diet work?

The Really Good News
By decreasing the amount of carbohydrates coming in from the diet as well as the fat, we force your body to consume STORED FAT as your PRIMARY ENERGY SOURCE. This optional way for our bodies to function is called ketosis. Ketosis occurs when we are using fat (instead of sugars) as our primary energy source. Since we are also cutting the fat way down, your body must turn to stored fat as its energy—finally burning through all the fat we have been storing for years. Ketosis also acts as a natural appetite suppressant.
