What is a Therapeutic Diet?

Therapeutic Diet (TLC) Plan
Learn to love and believe in yourself

People struggling with weight loss have sabotaging thoughts, which make it nearly impossible to successfully lose weight. Behind all habitual behaviors are established thoughts and belief systems, which in the case of the overweight and obese, are often incorrect and maladaptive. A therapeutic diet counters these false beliefs by using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. A therepeutic diet, therefore, is one that is designed to change behaviors by restructuring thoughts and eliminating faulty belief systems.

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life!

In the Nu-Living Weight Loss Program, we will teach you to address sabotaging thoughts with helpful responses. The Nu-Living program is a physician-designed and assisted, comprehensive medical weight loss program for overweight and obese patients who are seriously ready and willing to embrace a therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) ending their weight control problems forever. The program recognizes the unique requirements of each weight control patient and it provides customized treatment plans and individualized, one-on-one care. Nu-Living Weight Loss will teach you how to...

  • Believe in yourself!
  • Diet successfully
  • Redefine the meaning of FULL
  • Start over THIS MOMENT after a minor setback
  • Say to yourself "Oh, well!" when accepting your restrictions
  • Resist unplanned eating
  • Keep yourself motivated to lose weight
  • Avoid cheating
  • Resist tempting food
  • Soothe your emotions from hunger, cravings, and stress WITHOUT food
  • Motivate yourself to exercise

...all by changing your thinking.

Responding To Your Thoughts That Interfere With Weight Loss

Sabatoging Thought Helpful Response
"I want to be able to eat spontaneously sometimes" "Then I have to accept the fact that I won't be able to keep off whatever weight I lose. The price of becoming and staying thinner is to follow whatever therapeutic diet I establish for myself."
"How could I have eaten that? I'm never going to succeed at dieting. I should just give up now." "I'm not going to let this minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake does not ruin my therapeutic diet, but falling back into old patterns WILL. I'm recommitting to my diet right here, right now."
"I don't want to accept the restrictions. There must be an easier way." "Non-acceptance is going to lead to struggle, and I'll probably give up and regain any weight I lose. I have to accept the fact that there is no easier way. Say "oh, well", which means, "I don't like this, but I can't change it, so I'll accept it and move on"
"Eating is my only comfort." "I certainly could comfort myself in other ways. Now, I have to decide: I can eat when I'm upset and gain weight OR I can learn to tolerate negative emotions (or soothe myself by doing something else) and get - and stay - thinner."
