The Key to Healthy Weight: Understanding your Metabolism

Are you tired of trying different diets and not getting sustainable results? What works for one person does not work for someone else. That is because we have different metabolisms.

Instead of focusing on calories, different diets, or exercise routines, it is more important to know what your metabolism is doing. Based on that, you can pick the foods that work best for you.

During this 4 week journey led by Dr. Chiti Parikh, all participants will wear a continuous glucose monitor to gain better insight into their metabolism. Each week will have specific instructions on using that information while optimizing your diet, sleep, exercise, and stress management routine.

This session is a good fit for anyone looking to optimize their weight or address prediabetes or early diabetes.

Pre-requisites: We accept most insurances for these sessions. You will be responsible if you have a copay, coinsurance, deductible, etc.

The sensors will cost around $75 for 2 sensors with insurance and $140 without insurance. You will also need a smartphone to use the app associated with this event, Veri, which is $39 a month. A certain level of comfort with technology is needed to navigate the information and use the sensors.
