There are almost as many reasons that weight loss programs and diets fail as there are that medical weight loss practices fail. Though they aren’t the same, a lot can be learned from the similarities between them.
As far as the individual is concerned, weight loss programs or diets will fail for a variety of reasons. The least among them is that the program fails to inspire the individual with confidence, which is almost a sure fire way to guarantee a failure. Still, processes that inspire confidence can fail for other reasons.
Generally, these have to do with the fact that all individuals are different and thus have different needs. Genetics, food allergies, metabolism and many other factors can and will affect the progress and success of a weight loss initiative. Weight loss programs are, to make a sloppy comparison, like shoes; that is to say, one size does not fit all.
The same thing could be said about medical practices and organizations that aim to provide weight loss programs for their clients. Without taking into account the varied needs of the individual patients, the practice itself is nearly doomed to fail. In addition, there are several other roadblocks in the way of success without even considering this greater fact.
For one thing, achieving efficient processes is a difficult goal to attain, and nearly impossible without the right human resources, the right counsel, and the right testing and equipment. Without these, a weight loss practice is not set up for success.
The issue is that these are expensive and can be very difficult to scale. The answer then, for many weight loss practices, is to hire a qualified medical business consultant. There are enough reasons out there to fill up volumes in defense of this strategy, but here are some of the best.
On top of the fact that working with a medical business consultant can help you identify the specific needs of your practice, you’ll gain better access to specialized consulting services that would be nearly impossible to get from an in-house team. At the very least, it would be far less economically feasible if it were possible at all.
Even if the argument can be made that outsourcing does not necessarily put you in front of better consulting services, it can hardly be denied that it will put you in front of a more diverse team, and as the old saying goes, “two heads are better than one.” The difference is that when you hire a medical business consultant with a specialized team of experts, you get a lot more than two heads, and all of them are specialized in uncovering the unique problems faced by your clinic (and your clinic’s patients) as well as how to address them.
Partnering with a medical business consultant will also put you in front of a suite of specialized equipment and testing services that your clinic might not otherwise be able to offer, at least on a cost-effective basis, but more on that in a moment.
For example, when you partner with us here at Healthy Habits Weight Loss Business Builders, you’ll have access not only to our team of expert nutritionists and medical consultants, but also to specialized products, equipment and testing services.
Among those that we offer are our Lipo Laser Machines, our Genetic testing services that assist our specialists in devising personalized weight loss and management solutions, and our specialty products which support those plans.
As previously mentioned, it’s often cost-prohibitive for clinics to provide only some of the services and consulting mentioned above, even when it becomes a matter of necessity. The thing is, it often is a matter of necessity, but the only way to offer a full suite of services, consulting and equipment is to outsource.
Naturally, the solution to that issue is to work with a medical business consultant like Healthy Habits Weight Loss Business Builders. It’s one of the best ways to cost engineer the services offered by a clinic without compromising on the quality of those services. In reality, it often improves them.
For one thing, you won’t need to hire any additional staff members, consultants, nutritionists, doctors, technicians or additional administrative staff when you work with a consulting company. You’ll only have to hire those you need and you can lean on the experience of your consulting partner.
Not only do you save money up front by working with a consultant, but you’ll save money down the line as well. Human resource expenses only start with the hire but they don’t end there. You need to pay to manage the very human resources you hire, and that creates a complex chain of expenses in its own right.
Now, of course, if you outsource, that won’t ever be something that you need to deal with.
Finally, and most importantly, working with a medical business consultant promotes efficient practices. Sometimes efficiency means saving money, but it can also mean providing better results for your clients, more consistent and dependable results for your clients, or just doing so more effectively.
Efficiency has a ripple effect on all areas of your business, enabling you to serve more customers, serve them better, and grow into new areas, should you so choose.
Our mission is, broadly, to maximize our client’s profitability all while at the same time improving their clients’ experiences. We test in protocol and processes and train our clients to offer better services to their customers, so that their weight loss programs will succeed.
We do this through a combination of hard work, customer service, and above all else, expertise. When it comes to experience and expertise, we have a team of seasoned experts with a litany of credentials to testify not only to their education but also to their success.
Our President, Dr. Lundahl, has 30 years of experience in the weight loss industry, and 10 years of training experience. During that time, he has helped to propel over 350 clinics across the country to success. He and his team of medical consultants and nutritional counselors combine the experience, expertise and creativity necessary to drive your weight loss clinic to success, and here’s how they do it.
What Healthy Habits Weight Loss Business Builders Provides
Now that you have some insight into the general reasons that you should work with a medical business consultant, here are some of the services, equipment and products that we offer our customers to help their businesses grow and improve their customer experience.
Not many other specialists in the healthcare industry provide for genetic testing services, but the truth is that genetic composition affects every area of life, and of course this includes any weight loss initiatives.
Genetic testing is not just the future of weight loss services, it is the future of preventive health in general. Among other things, your body’s individual genetic makeup impacts how you digest, process, and generally respond to nutrients, including carbohydrates and fats. Genetics impact your response to fitness activities and exercise, as well as aging, predisposition to disease and almost anything else that can be addressed by or included under a lifestyle analysis.
Therefore, understanding genetic composition is the first step to an individualized weight loss plan. Our process is simple, straightforward, thorough, and most importantly, secure. We test individuals for over 300 unique genetic markers. These are then analyzed before our consultants can make recommendations for nutrition, dieting, fitness programs, sleep schedules and much more.
We have always prided ourselves on the thoroughness of our processes, and on our responsiveness to changing conditions.
As a result, we offer a unique mix of services that work together to accomplish results for your patients, and thus for your practice. Currently, no other providers provide genetic testing that is aligned with food allergy considerations, which are then used to produce the personalized meal plans we create for your patients.
Food allergy testing is critical to understanding an individual’s unique nutritional and dietary needs, and it can impact not only metabolism and weight loss, but also how the body responds to a meal plan.
Contact us to learn more about our forthcoming food allergy testing and how it will be paired with our genetic testing to deliver truly revolutionary, cutting-edge meal plan development.
As we have mentioned at several points throughout this article, a one size fits all approach to weight loss is a sure fire way to fail, at least a majority of the time. No two individuals are alike, they have different genetics and allergies, and thus their meal plans should not be the same.
Our nutritionists and doctors take great pains to customize meal plans to your individual customers’ needs, in order to ensure the success of their endeavors.
Just like meal plans should vary according to the individual needs of a patient, so should fitness plans. Two people will respond in differing ways to the same exact fitness regimen, and so this is another aspect of weight management that should be custom tailored to the individual.
Our genetic testing is just the first step our specialists take in crafting fitness routines to your individual patients. Just how and when to pair these with specialized meal plans and lifestyle recommendations is a small snapshot of the greater puzzle that we put together for your patients to help guarantee success – for them and for you.
Let’s say you have special questions on behalf of your clients, or you’d like to learn more about our processes or our recommendations. Well, in that case, you can tap into the talent of our team of nutritionists that are at your service when you subscribe to our services.
The cost of our services is nothing next to what hiring a nutritionist would cost, and our team of specialists is steeped in years of experience and erudition. Just give us a call to learn more about our credentials.
A carefully crafted regimen, composed of specialized meal plans and fitness routines, taking into account genetic markers and predispositions, is only a portion of the picture. Sometimes these diets and routines must be (or should be) supplemented with specialty products to help them be as effective as possible.
That’s why we offer products like our Carb Buster and Ultra Slim 30 to support the diet plans we craft for your customers. We also provide Lipo Laser Machines that can be used as a non-invasive method to reduce fat on targeted areas of your customers’ bodies – and we’ll beat any competitor when it comes to price!
Best of all, our memberships are designed to help you get the most you can possibly get from our consulting services. We offer a number of unique packages that come with carefully selected features to help you get the most from your investment.
