Losing weight can be one of the largest challenges with some of the most rewarding results. Truly, there is no easy cure and beware of those who say there is. Permanent weight loss takes personal devotion and lifestyle change. However, Dr. Barreda can greatly assist you in your endeavor. Using a multidirectional approach, she looks at your nutritional deficiencies, the weaknesses in your current diet plan, and the things that often make you fail in your weight loss attempts. She doesn’t use quick-fix or fad diets that promise short term loss with often damaging health consequences. Dr. Barreda recommends healthy and nutritional eating plans that you can incorporate into your current lifestyle. She work to promote weight loss through diet changes, nutritional supplementation, exercise, and use supplementation to support your organs responsible for metabolism and weight loss.
Food allergies and sensitivities are often a vital component in weight gain and thus hinder weight loss. A simple blood test can be performed to identify the exact foods that are defeating your weight loss goals. Identifying and eliminating these offending foods often produce phenomenal results.
Dr Barreda makes your diet and exercise efforts more productive, while not forgetting about the mental and emotional aspects of food and dieting. We often sabotage our weight loss efforts whether knowingly or not. Eating due to stress, unconscious eating, overeating, not being happy with ourselves regardless of actual weight; these thought patterns cannot be ignored. People often lose weight only to regain it all back. Sometimes our physical bodies are no longer fat, but in our minds we still are or we simply fall back into old destructive patterns. Using Hypnosis, Mind/Body Techniques, Counseling, and Positive Affirmations these destructive thought patterns can be changed.
Dr Barreda works to give you control over your eating habits, help you to recognize your thought patterns, and give you back control over your health and your weight.
