About the Keyto program
No, our program is for anyone who is motivated to lose weight, decrease their risk factors for chronic medical conditions or to improve or even reverse their type 2 diabetes.
No! You don’t need to take any supplements or special products as part of our program. Our goal is to get you to enjoy eating real, whole foods.
Definitely not! We will teach you what you need to know about the foods you should be eating, and how much of it to eat.
Absolutely not! Several scientific studies have shown that reduced or low calorie diets are not effective long term. People will often lose weight on them initially, as with most diets, but the body adapts by decreasing the number of calories it uses, and the end result is putting back not only the weight lost, but then some. This is how that vicious yo-yo cycle gets established.
Not at all! The idea is to eat as much as you want until you’re full at meal times, and eat only when you’re hungry. In fact, most patients that follow similar programs, especially if they have followed low calorie diets before, are often shocked at how full they feel by what they’re eating.
It is absolutely possible to follow our program on a limited budget. We’ll show you how.
Yes! This is where you will learn everything you need to know to be able to succeed at losing weight, and if applicable, reversing your diabetes.
Yes. Our physicians will evaluate your medical history to ensure that you will be able to follow our program safely. We will also evaluate your motivation for participating in our program. If you are not truly motivated, or are not prepared to change your habits, we suggest waiting until such a time when you will be able to succeed.
Absolutely! Our approach is based entirely on science. Many studies have proven the effectiveness and safety of our program. As a matter of fact, many people around the world follow this way of life with great results. We are happy to provide you with a list of relevant studies if you would like.
Quite simply, diets don’t work. There is no quick fix, and our program is designed to be a way of life. It is meant to fit with your busy schedule, whether it is eating out, travelling or just on the go.
Absolutely! It is very easy to eat at restaurants while on this program. We will teach you what you need to know to make the right choices when dining out.
The initial consultation is $175.00.* If you are a candidate for our program you can then enroll in the full six month program at a cost of $799.00 (plus tax) and the initial consultation fee of $175.00 is deducted. This fee includes all consultations, sessions and program material.
*All visits with a physician are covered by Medicare.
The beneficial effects of our program can start to be seen as early as the first week in the majority of patients. It is important to remember though that diabetes doesn’t develop overnight, so it takes time to reverse it.
That depends on your current weight. In general, most patients are able to reach a healthy weight and more importantly, are able to maintain it.
One of the fundamental aspects of our program is to teach patients how to change their way of eating so that it becomes a way of life. This is not a fad diet or a quick fix. To maintain your weight and to maintain the other health benefits, you will need to keep using what you will learn in the program.
You’re already on your way by looking into our program. We’ve been in your shoes, and we know the struggles all too well. We will help to guide you every step of the way through the process of safe weight loss, and better health.
Diabetes and medical conditions
I’m on medications for my diabetes and blood pressure. Will there be a doctor available to help manage any changes to my medication on your program?
Of course. Our program is run by a team of health professionals, including physicians. If any adjustments are necessary, one of our physicians will meet with you to ensure you are taking the right doses.
I’m diabetic and I take several medications as well as insulin. Is it really possible that I may not need all this in the future?
This is one of the goals of our program! Many patients who follow a program like this are successful in helping to treat their diabetes, and as a result, are able to reduce or stop taking most, if not all of their medications, including insulin.
There are several chronic medical conditions that can be improved by our program. PCOS, hypertension and metabolic syndrome are good examples.
