Lifestyle Nutritional Counseling

FT Logo 4C PC

FirstLine Therapy (FLT) is a specialized therapeutic lifestyle change program unlike any other in that the FLT system targets the underlying causes of chronic illnesses by incorporating a sensible eating plan, exercise, nutritional supplementation, and stress management. In fact, the following key characteristics are unique to the FLT Program:

FLT is not just a weight loss program

·         Most programs are focused on weight while FLT is best used as the first line treatment for common, chronic health problems (e.g., 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 reduction goals.

FLT has been demonstrated to be effective in human clinical studies

·         Most programs lack clinical evidence of effectiveness
