The only way we would consider offering this program to patients is if we understood the diet completely. Of course this meant trying it. Dr. Bogash was chosen as the guinea pig…here is his experience.
“If I was going to ask patients to go through this program, I needed to be able to follow it myself. I wanted to know how well this would work for someone who was already leading a healthy lifestyle. I wasn’t unhappy with my weight, but could stand to take off a few percent of body fat. If I could do this because I wanted to, I fully expect my patients to be able to do this because they HAVE to. It’s funny how much people focus on the calorie restriction, when, in reality, this is really not a big deal. The meals were actually quite filling. The harder part was the social aspect of the diet–not going to Coffee Rush for an iced soy mocha after a busy day, not going out to dinner with friends…But it’s only for a short period and the payoff is well worth it. Overall, I lost 12 lbs in 12 days, with a few pounds of weight regain after I stopped. Overall took about 1 1/2 inches off my waistline. This is an ideal program for anyone concerned about injection of or oral intake of hormones into their bodies, but still wants the benefit of a low calorie diet. But do NOT consider this diet unless you are willing to make some sacrifices.”
As a result of this experience, we have chosen to offer three separate packages.
All programs include the 2-hour FLT crash course (https://www.lifecarechiropractic.com/class_firstline_therapy.shtml). This is a requirement. You need to know what changes to make so that, as you transition out of the diet, you make the best choices
All programs include body composition testing using our BIA device.
Short program for 2 wks
Wanting to lose 10-15 lbs. Before and after BIA $150
Medium program for 4 wks
Wanting to lose 20-25 lbs. 3 BIAs. $200

In most cases, Health Savings Accounts will cover the costs of the program, although coverage varies.
Please note: If you are not local, you can still participate in our program, with the exception of the body composition testing. Email or call the office for details!
