is FLT Different?
are three key reasons that make FirstLine
Therapy® (FLT) different than conventional lifestyle programs:
FLT is about more than just weight loss.
- FLT can help you lose unhealthy fat
while retaining healthy, lean muscle.
- FLT integrates body composition
testing (fat & lean tissue ratios) because being thin doesn't
necessarily mean you're healthy.
- An imbalance in body composition
(gaining too much fat or losing too much muscle) can lead to serious
health problems such as high blood pressure, altered cholesterol
- Loss of muscle results in loss of
ability to burn calories, which makes it much more difficult to
maintain weight loss over time.
- FLT focuses on lifestyle factors
that are the underlying cause of many health problems.
The FLT eating plan is different.
- Most diets focus on NOT eating -
not eating fat, not eating carbs, or just plain not eating much of
anything. With most diets, success is based primarily on will power.
- The FLT eating plan emphasizes the
need to eat, and to eat frequently.
- The focus is on eating THE RIGHT
KIND OF FOODS - the right kind of fat, the right kind of
carbohydrates, and the right kind of protein - all
in the right portion size.
- FLT incorporates a low-glycemic-index
eating plan based on the latest scientific research that will help you
maintain stable blood sugar and energy levels.
- According to recent studies, low-glycemic
diets are more effective than low-fat diets in treating obesity,
insulin resistance, high cholesterol, heart disease, and type 2
- People report less hunger and more
energy, making it much easier to stick with the program.
incorporates medical foods and dietary supplements.
- Using appropriate medical foods and
dietary supplements as part of this program can
improve the effectiveness of the program for you and
help you achieve your health goals.
foods are designed to address the unique nutritional needs of
patients with specific health concerns.
- Dietary supplements provide
targeted nutritional support for specific functions, such
as healthy blood
cholesterol or blood sugar levels,
and mobility, or healthy
|FLT has been
demonstrated to be effective in controlled clinical
trials, while most other diets have not.
