Why You Can't Lose Weight: The Truth (whether you like it or not!)

Losing weight is not as easy as you think.  It’s more involved than spending time in the gym and eating salads.   It is a complex system of chemical reactions, enzymes, and hormones, all complicated by our lifestyle. I am here to get you through it! 

There are no quick fixes, magic bullets, or crash diets that will correct years of an unhealthy lifestyle.  It's just not about losing a few pounds and then going back to the status quo; it's about changing your life for the better.  To properly make lasting changes, it will take time, dedication, effort, sacrifice and money.  Your path to health begins by identifying negative behaviors and habits, how you got into this situation, and how you are going to get yourself out.  I am here to coach and guide you through every step, transforming your mind and body!

How much money did you spend on cigarettes, fatty meals, trips to the bar, etc.?  I'm sure you don't want to think about it.  Just as getting unhealthy is not cheap, weight loss is not cheap; it will cost money to fix.  You are investing in you, your health and your family!  What is more important than that?

When working with me, please do not use the excuse that “I work too much or do not have time”.  Yes, everyone, including me, is expendable.  With that being said, you have the time, you just need to prioritize!  Getting well is number one!  You can’t be there for your family if you’re six feet under!

Please follow my recommendations.  I KNOW when you are not telling me the truth.  I may not want to embarrass you, but I know.  I have the best and latest scientific information, both conventional and alternative at my disposal. I didn’t make it up, so please come to your initial consultation with and open mind and be ready to make some changes!

Patients also tell me that their body is different, not so.  Your body is not different than the rest of humanity.  We have the same metabolic processes; we all have screwed them up differently.  It is my job to figure out the how's, the why's and the best method to correct it.

Weight reduction must be planned and calculated.  Changing your workout or diet against advice will cost you time, effort, and my help.

Another excuse:  My medication keeps me fat.  Well then maybe this medication is more detrimental than helpful.  Have you looked into alternatives for your condition?  With the help of your prescribing doctor, I will discuss alternatives to alleviate your health condition.

When it comes to weight loss, I am very passionate and will not have my patients fail.  This is a serious health epidemic that is being swept under the rug.  Most Americans are overweight and over one-third of children are overweight.   I want to help you! 

Bottom line-you must love yourself enough to seek me out.  I won’t give up and I expect the same from you.

To schedule a consultation, please call the office.  If you would like to speak with me directly prior to us meeting, just ask for me.

Yours in health,

Dr. Scott Schreiber
