Are you sick of diets or nutritional programs that simply don’t work? We have a solution for you. It’s called FirstLine, and it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before because it is customized to your needs, guiding you along the path to better health and happiness. At Huntington Lifestyle Partners in Pasadena, California, we’re excited about this program and want to share the philosophy of why it works.
The Truth Behind Nutritional Marketing Campaigns
Remember the “proper nutritional portioning” campaign? This was launched in the 1990s and was a 5-a-Day marketing campaign to teach people about proper nutritional portioning. The program taught that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day were recommended. But was it successful?
After 10 years of this campaign, the percentage of people eating 5-a-Day went from 11% to 11%. You read this right. There was no change.
However, what was interesting was that the understanding of the concept went from 8% to 33%. What does this mean? It clearly demonstrates that information alone is not enough to teach people how to eat and live well.
What Makes the FirstLine Therapy Program Different?
The FirstLine Therapy program is a physician-supervised, individualized operating system to guide people along the path to better health using proven habit-formation psychology. It lasts 12 weeks, which is the average amount of time required to form a new habit. Best of all, it is fully customized to the client’s lifestyle. We understand not everyone has a gym membership or a treadmill, and not everyone likes to cook. That’s why our team will work with every single patient to find a solution that works for them.
How Does This Therapy Program Work?
Quite simply, it creates personalized wellness and healthy lifestyle programs that are tailored to fit your needs. There is no one program that everyone is forced to adhere to. We customize it to meet your needs.
The key is not a diet, or “points,” or specialized equipment that you have to purchase. It is based upon developing good habits so a healthy lifestyle becomes a part of who you are instead of what you do. This program is not only helpful for those who want to have a healthier lifestyle, but it’s also a good choice for those who have to deal with chronic illnesses on a daily basis. These illnesses include:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
What Is Treatment Like?
First, you’ll find that no two treatment processes are alike. That’s because we’re always looking at what goals each individual person has. That’s the only way we can truly customize what will work for you.
Second, you should know that these programs typically have a 12-week plan. The programs include suggestions about:
- Behavioral modifications
- Making better choices
- Physical activity
- Nutritional guidance
You’re not left to go it alone. We have a specialized practitioner who will work with you on your journey to wellness. Because no one takes the journey alone, it’s vital that you have regular visits to our Pasadena office. This is when our practitioner will work with you one-on-one to ensure that your program is working for you.
What Do I Need to Be Successful in the Program?
We only ask that you approach the program with a realistic goal. It’s important to speak with us upfront about your expectations for the program. As always, what you get out of a program is equal to the amount of effort you put into it. Our most successful clients are those who have diligently worked on the program with consistent commitment.
How Do I Determine if This Is for Me?
We’re happy to help you answer that question. We encourage you to meet with our practitioner for a consultation. Firstline program is geared toward managing overall health and helping you avoid the effects of serious, chronic illnesses.
Will I Lose Weight With This Program?
If you follow firstline recommended guidelines and carefully remain dedicated to our treatment plan, then you may lose weight. However, we want to indicate that you may not see dramatic or significant weight loss. The program is about helping you establish healthier habits that will follow you throughout your life and provide significant health benefits.
First line therapy diet programs are customized to meet your unique needs and concerns. These programs are intended to assist with promoting overall health and wellness and managing the effects of chronic illness. This program may help you lose weight, but it may not be the best support for significant or dramatic weight loss.
What Are Other Advantages to This Therapy?
The first and most obvious advantage is that it is a 12-week structured program that helps you develop healthy habits, not by putting you on a “diet” or on a program that won’t work for you, but by helping you reach your individual plans and goals through establishing healthy routines. It also offers ongoing clinical support.
This is an evidence-based system, providing behavior modification. This is a lifetime approach to healthy living, not a “quick fix” solution that is much more likely to result in backsliding and unsuccessful attempts. We also provide the tools and educational materials you need along with the chance for ongoing learning opportunities, like webinars.
