Therapeutic Lifestyle Program
“Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.”
FLT is not just a weight loss program
Most programs are focused on weight while FLT is best used as a first line treament for common, chronic health problems (high cholesterol, insulin resistance, unhealthy body composition).
The FLT eating plan is different
Most programs are focused on lowfat diets while FLT emphasizes the importance of a low-glycemic eating plan that is consistent with current research.
FLT incorporates medical foods and nutritional supplements
The appropriate use of medical foods and supplements enhances program effectiveness and shortens the time it takes for you to achieve risk reduction goals.
FLT has been demonstrated to be effective in human clinical studies
Most programs lack clinical evidence of effectiveness.
A Matter of Fat
In order to measure your progress, you first need to know your current health status. A variety of health assessments may be performed, including a quick, non-invasive measurement of your body fat and lean muscle mass.
Excess body fat can greatly increase your health risks. But a higher ratio of muscle increases your metabolism and is associated with a lower incidence of illness. Improving your muscle-to-fat ratio is perhaps the most powerful tool in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality. And that’s what FirstLine Therapy is all about.
Illness is not a normal part of aging.
