How WE work

The Lifelong Journey to a Healthier You

Our Wellness Program

Good health is your most valuable asset. Nutrition and activity are important factors, however, they are not the only indicators. To properly assess your health and create a sustainable lifestyle program that works for you, we will need to understand what has contributed to your current weight and health status.

Our goal is to help you identify, reach and maintain your best weight. This means a sustainable weight you can achieve while living a life you honestly enjoy. We guide our patients through a comprehensive assessment to develop a customized strategy for living a happier and healthier life. There are four key areas we review to get a thorough understanding of your medical history:

Medical

Chronic conditions such as sleep apnea, diabetes and high blood pressure

Biological

Hormonal and physiological changes that occur as we age

EMOTIONAL

Eating as a coping mechanism in response to life stressors or boredom

PSYCHOLOGICAL

Cognitive distortions that can lead to all-or-nothing mentality, binge eating, and/or restrictive eating, etc.

Give Us Commitment, Find Freedom

We require a minimum commitment of 6 months in our program. Our programs are founded on balance as we want you to enjoy life. Struggling with weight is not a character flaw or a matter of ‘move more, eat less’; it is a complex chronic condition that requires you to understand your mind and body. Having achieved a measure of that, together we will build a balanced program that works for you.

No one wants to give up chocolate cake forever. With our program, you will learn to enjoy those goodies in moderation. We help you find activities that you actually enjoy. You don’t like running? That’s okay – you don’t have to run!

Lose Your Weight, Not Your Mind

People are inundated with an abundance of weight loss programs and fad diets that promise you immediate weight-loss. The problem we see with these programs is often they do not address the behaviours and lifestyle choices that led to weight gain in the first place. You may lose weight with extreme diet and exercise, but often within a year or two, you gain the weight back (and then some). This roller coaster of weight gain and loss is primarily because the program isn’t sustainable with your unique lifestyle.

As one of the first Certified Bariatric Educators in Alberta, Dr. Dan has helped a number of individuals through their journey to achieve their Best Weight. Dan and his team takes an individualized, one-on-one approach that is medically supervised and helps you achieve sustainable weight-loss and a healthier life.

Little Changes Create Big Results

While excess body fat may impair your health, losing as little as 5% of your body weight can have significant health benefits, including reducing your risk of heart disease, diabetes, joint pain, and increasing your mood and sex drive.

The weight that each of us carries on our bodies is influenced by a myriad of factors including daily habits, genetics, upbringing, our food environment and our activity level.

We’ll work together to identify your unhealthy habits and transition to a healthier mindset.
