Re-Vive Diet

The “Re-Vive Diet” is the most natural lifestyle dietary approach that anyone can do. This diet gives you easy transitional phases to follow based on your individual needs. The “Re-Vive Diet”, will guide you through making the changes necessary for successful weight-loss and maintenance. Everyone should be eating heathy, clean, and balanced 80-90% of the time which allows us to treat ourselves 10-20% of the time.   This diet is similar at first to a “Keto Diet,” but to be in ketosis it is all about glycemic index of a food and how it can spike your blood sugar, they can be very restrictive in either or the types of foods and number of calories allowed. The “Re-Vive Diet” is more about glycemic loading, that is how the food enters the blood stream. The higher the fiber, protein, or fat content is in a food helps to slows how fast sugars or carbs enter the blood stream. No one is really getting fat by eating carrot sticks or tomatoes, that is why this diet is about keeping insulin levels low and in the burn zone. The “Re-Vive Diet” puts the focus on healthy food choices with lean proteins, high fiber, and good fats. Fats are so important in this diet, that you are having at least a serving with all meals and snacks throughout the day. Healthy fats are flavor, fuel, and fullness. By remembering and incorporating these key ideas into your every day life, they will help teach your body to burn fat for fuel, maintain muscle mass, and increases your energy.

hCG Diet

Dr. A.T.W Simeons a British physician, devoted many years of his life to doing research in the area of obesity and weight loss. It was during these years he determined that the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin with a very low calorie diet, of 500 calories or less brought on successful weight loss without all the unpleasant symptoms so commonly associated with low calorie diets, such as hunger. In more recently years Dr. Sheri L. Emma explained after conducting numerous double blind studies that while the low calorie diet alone would indeed contribute to great weight loss, it was not so efficient in reducing fat, maintaining proper musculature, and increasing metabolic rate.


First and foremost HCG is a natural hormone produced by pregnant women to aid in the successful break down of body fat in order to aid in the nutritional support of the baby. In a world where we are more and more concerned about the safety of the products we put into our body, what could be better than a natural hormone safe for unborn babies!


The hormone works by reducing your appetite, maintaining normal energy levels, and easing the normal symptoms of eating a low calorie diet such as headaches, and mood swings. The hormone does this by allowing your body to more efficiently process the fat stores already in your body. Taken in proper dosages this hormone will make not only weight loss easy, but fat loss as well! AND…you’ll keep it off.


The most effective HCG protocols, are multi-phase protocols, starting with an optional cleanse, a mandatory loading phase one, phase 2 the longest phase and most important, phase 3 and 4 in which you taper off the hormone and re-acclimatize your body to a less restrictive higher calorie diet. Successful use of this particular protocol not only aids in weight loss and fat loss, but it also alters your metabolism in such a way as to maintain the weight loss long term.

Paleo-AIP-Lectin Free Diet-Resistant Starches

There are so many diet trends that promise easy and fast weight loss, but usually at a cost, both financial and physical.  But there are a few diet plans that really do help improve overall health and quality of life.  These directly address the foods that cause our bodies to react with allergies, food sensitivities, and autoimmune disorders.  


The AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet eliminates all forms of legumes, dairy, soy and grains and focuses primarily on meat, fish, nuts and vegetables. The autoimmune diet takes it a step further, however, and also eliminates several Paleo diet foods. On the AIP diet, for example, nuts, seeds, eggs and nightshade vegetables are prohibited.

Lectins are thought to play a role in immune function, cell growth, cell death, and body fat regulation.  Because lectins are not digesteed very well, our body can be triggered to produce antibodies to them. Almost everyone has antibodies to some dietary lectins in their body and every reaction can be different.  Some foods can become intolerable after some stressful event whether emotional, physical, or enviromental, it can impact the body and trigger immune response.   The presence of particular lectins can stimulate an immune system response.   While many types of lectins cause negative reactions in the body, there are also health promoting lectins that can decrease incidence of certain diseases.  The body also uses lectins to achieve many basic functions, including cell to cell adherence, inflammatory modulation and programmed cell death.  Symptoms of lectin sensitivity can include skin rashes, joint pain, and general inflammation. Other chronic disorders may be correlated with leaky gut — for example, researchers have even noted that children with autism have very high rates of leaky gut and similar inflammatory GI tract diseases like Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome, the gut lining seems to be more sensitive to food lectins. This might be due to the high turnover of cells and greater population of the immature variety. These immature cells have plenty of spots for lectins to attach which increases their chance of reaction.

Resistant starches are types of carb based foods that are not fully broken down and absorbed, but rather turned into short-chain fatty acids by intestinal bacteria in the lower gut.    Recent studies show that resistant starch can actually boost weight loss by regulating insulin, promoting gut health, and helping you feel fuller longer.  It is not always the amount of carbs you are eating but how they are cooked that can make a difference.

Intermittent Fasting

The term intermittent fasting has been become a big "fad", but this type of dietary lifestyle plan has been around for literally almost ever, up until the twentieth century when large grocery stores appeared, with improved packaging, and longer shelf life.  People went from eating 2-3 times a day to up to 5-6 times a day.  Also, depending on the types of foods eaten, can keep insulin levels spiking throughout the day and does not give enough time for your body to digest and utilize nutrients for energy and cellular repair. 


FASTING is by choice and in your control.  You decide when to start and break your fast.   Breakfast dose not have to be at 8 am, Lunch noon, and dinner by 6 pm.  There are many different fasting protocols like the 16/8, where you give yourself an eight hour block for eating such as 11 am-7 pm, and sixteen hours of fasting,  there's also 18/6, 20/4, 24 hours dinner to dinner, and then safely your could do three days, 14 days, 21 days, or even three months.  This type of fasting can be done once a month, a couple times a week, or once a year to maintain and or reboot your system.


Intermittent fasting has many different options and can easily fit to your health and lifestyle needs.  It can be added to any type of specialty diets like gluten free, paleo, autoimmune, and antifungal or exercise regimes.  Intermittent fasting is a great way to lose weight, boost your metabolism, improve cardiovascular health, and overall immune response.  

MIC Injections

MIC injections are potent fat blasting compound of vitamins that help to support the liver and release fat out of fat cells.  MIC injections may also have B vitamins, Carnitine, and other lipotropic support.  They are often given 1-2 x a week and can be used in conjuction with most dietary lifestyle plans.


Methionine (the M in MIC): It assists in the lipolysis, the break down of fat, as well as assisting with digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body since it can be converted into cytosine, a precurser to glutathione, which is so important in the detoxification of the liver.


Inotisol (the I in MIC): Part of B vitamin complex, helps to maintain proper eleectrical gradient and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane.  It also helps with lipolysis and establish healthy cell membranes, which facilitate nerve impulses.  It also helps with insulin control, hormone balance, restful night sleep, and mood.


Choline (the C in MIC): Choline is an emulsifier and assists in controlling weight, keeping cell membranes healthy, prevents gallstones, and maintains nervous system.  It is a precurser of betaine which helps kidneys to maintain water balance.

B 12 Injections

 B12 (methylated-cobalamin ) is an essential vitamin and helps with healthy nerve cells, DNA/RNA, red blood cell production, and iron function. It is found in fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk and milk products. Deficiency can cause anemia, fatigue, constipation, loss of appetite/weight, numbness and tingling in hands and feet, depression, dementia, poor memory, and oral sores.  It is also a key component in methylation which helps to remove toxins from our bodies.  B12 helps to boost energy and is often given once a week but can be added with other lipotropic vitamins for weight loss acceloration.
