What is the Set Point Principle of weight loss treatment?
Most of us are born with an optimum Set Point, which naturally maintains our genetic ideal weight. This is easily brought out of balance through inadequate and crash dieting and if the human body does not receive the correct type, composition and amount of nutrients each day.
The Set Point and dietary success are intrinsically linked.
Hence, the Set Point must be reset to its original setting, through a carefully customised and monitored approach, which is what the Set Point Diet seeks to achieve.
How does Claudia Louch weight management work?
It was discovered in the fifties that our hormones are very much part of the weight-gain and weight-loss process. A key hormone called leptin signals the brain to control energy intake, and therefore appetite. Controlling the production of leptin is the key to weight loss success.
Claudia Louch weight management works on the principle of leptin resistance; hence each patient undergoes not only rigorous health checks prior starting his or her diet. A crucial factor is the measurement of each patient’s leptin levels, which is performed by an independent laboratory blood test, and forms the very basis for each diet plan. Each patient receives his or her customised diet plan, depending on the health history, check-up outcome, life style and dietary requirements.
Treatment of allergies and gastrointestinal diseases
Claudia also treats a range of allergic and gastrointestinal diseases, for which she had undertaken postgraduate research at Imperial College London.
Steps to natural weight loss through the Set Point Diet
Each patient receives his or her customised diet plan, depending on their health history, check-up outcome, life style and dietary requirements.
A comprehensive blood analysis, including a leptin test, is mandatory. Further tests will depend on your case history evaluation during the consultation. The blood tests, together with the consultation, form the basis for the customisation of a patient’s diet. Once all the data is collated and your suitability and health status has been fully assessed, Claudia will customise a personal diet plan for you.
How much weight will I lose?
The average weight loss for female patients is 3kg (6.6 Pounds) within 2 weeks. The rate of weight-loss may vary and depends also on patient’s adherence and commitment to the diet. Men usually lose slightly more and may achieve a weight loss up to 5kg (11 Pounds) in 2 weeks.
Tell me more about the Claudia Louch Set Point Diet
The diet does not restrict any food groups, unless requested specifically by you, as it is designed to improve long-term health. The Set Point Diet is not a fad diet; it is based on sound scientific principles, providing the human body with all the nutrients it requires on a daily basis.
Upon successful completion of the diet program, patients will receive a maintenance diet for life.
