How Many Different Times Have You Tried To Lose Weight?

Many of our clients have tried other programs in the past and have struggled. Often people realize that having to buy pre-packaged meals, protein shakes or processed foods is not going to work long term...not to mention expensive. 


Losing weight on your own is very hard.


There’s hurdles and challenges that happen on a very regular basis and for those who haven’t experienced them before, it is a major struggle. 


Often people tell us that they just don’t like who they are and they want to feel better. Their confidence might be decreasing, they might be embarrassed to spend time with friends or being out in public. Their health is decreasing and they’re concerned about what will happen to them if this major problem doesn’t get fixed.


At Twin Cities Weight Loss we realize that every client is different, and we work hard to make sure you achieve the results you’re looking for. Each program is individualized. We work one-on-one with you to reach your weight loss goals.

The Reason For Our Success

Genetic Testing / DNA Testing

One of the best ways to keep weight off is to take away the guess work. We do this by incorporating genetic testing as part of our program. This is a huge benefit to our clients and one of the reasons for their amazing success and transformations. 


The genetic testing looks at two primary pieces of information. First, what ratio of protein, fat and carbohydrates does your body best respond to.  Should you be a higher fat, higher protein, or higher carb diet? And second, what types of exercise does your body best respond to. Maybe you respond best to high intensity with low duration...or maybe you respond better to low intensity with a higher duration.  Now realize that exercise isn't necessary to lose weight, but is very beneficial for long term health.


A well known study was performed by Stanford University that determined that programs which followed a meal plan based upon a clients' genetics would lead them to lose up to 2.5 times more weight!


This ultimately takes away the guessing game of weight loss and is more specific to you!


Expert guidance

It can be super frustrating when the person who is supposed to be helping you lose weight is actually there to try to sell you more product. This is the case with many of the local weight loss programs. Their primary focus is to sell you more and more product. This will often show up in the form of having a lower introductory cost to start the program, but don't let that fool you.  Month after month they will want you to buy their product over and over again.


How is this supposed to work when you stop their program? Do you have to keep buying their product to stay at your goal weight? 


On top of that, they may be very in-experienced with weight loss or have minimal education and tools to use to help you with your weight loss goals.


At Twin Cities Weight Loss, you will work directly with Dr. Erik Carlson (D.C.).  He has helped hundreds of people lose thousands of pounds. There are no product that you have to purchase during this program. Dr. Carlson helps you with learning about how your body best responds and works with you to figure out what will work for you long term. Why is this important?


The whole purpose of this is so once you're done with your program, you will have all the tools you will need to keep the weight off for the rest of your life!
