THE CHIROTHIN WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

What is ChiroThin and how does it work?

ChiroThin™ is a natural dietary supplement. Its formula, developed by ChiroNutraceutical, contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, and blood sugar stabilization, as well as increase metabolism and detoxification. When ChiroThin is combined with healthy and specific amounts of anti-inflammatory foods with a low glycemic index, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, ChiroThin allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and use it as energy when an individual consumes fewer calories than he or she burns in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specially designed the ChiroThin formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins, and cell salts for further added benefits. Additionally, the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program includes dietary and behavioral modification guidance, as well as a strategy to help maintain a long-term weight loss.

ChiroThin™ Safety Guidelines

  • The ChiroThin™ Program is doctor supervised. Each participant has a follow-up visit with the supervising doctor on a weekly basis. During these doctor-patient encounters, patients will answer questions regarding their overall health, their adherence to the diet, and any struggles or challenges they may be experiencing. Participants are then weighed, receive an 8-point body measurement, and their blood pressure is taken. Doctors use this data to calculate each patient’s BMI. Based on all of this information, participants are then given detailed information and instruction as it pertains to what they need to do for the upcoming week.

  • All patients are prescreened for complicating factors, poor prognostic indicators, and contraindication. If the screening reveals a complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a doctor will discuss the concern with the potential participant.

  • Depending on the severity of the projected clinical implications of the complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a person may be prohibited from undergoing the program.

  • If a potential participant’s past medical history contains any contraindications, the participant is prohibited from undergoing the program.

  • The ChiroThin™ Program is based on a low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory (LGAI) diet.

  • The ChiroThin Program includes the consumption of complex carbohydrates and is not a “protein-only” program. Complex carbohydrates prevent excessive ketosis, hyperuricemia, diuresis, electrolyte loss, refeeding edema, and they may improve muscular endurance.

  • While undergoing the six-week program, the participant consumes between twenty-four and thirty ounces of nutrient-dense, low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods per day.

  • The nutritional support formula is specifically developed to aid in fatty acid metabolism, suppressing hunger and cravings, stabilizing blood sugar, and in the mild detoxification of the body.

  • The program is six weeks in duration and falls well within the accepted standards for very low-calorie diets (VLCDs), as established by scientific data. These parameters include: doctor supervision, time on VLCD, dietary modifications, behavioral modifications, nutritional supplementation, and, when indicated, exercise.

  • The program provides a “re-feeding” component during which participants transition back to a “normal” diet composed of LGAI foods.

  • Participants are provided with guidelines, strategies, and tools to help them increase their chances of long-term weight loss success. These tools are based on each patient’s BMR, activity level, appropriate exercise, and continued healthy nutritional consumption.

ChiroThin Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is ChiroThin and how does it work?

The ChiroThin nutritional support formula, by ChiroNutraceutical, is a natural dietary supplement that has been purposefully designed to go hand-in-hand with the doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program. It contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, blood sugar stabilization, increase in metabolism and detoxification. When combined with a healthy and specific amounts and blends of low glycemic index, anti-inflammatory foods, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, ChiroThin allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and uses it as energy when an individual consumes less calories than they burn in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specifically designed the ChiroThin formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins and cell salts for additional added benefit.

 

Where is ChiroThin manufactured and what are the quality control guidelines?

In order to maintain the highest ingredient and manufacturing standards, all of ChiroNutraceutical’s products use only 100% United States derived and combined ingredients. Our manufacturing facility, which is located in the western United States, is FDA certified. This means that with ChiroNutraceutical, routine inspections by the FDA ensure compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) for your safety. Unlike many companies, ChiroNutraceutical holds its own individual FDA Establishment Number.

 

What sets ChiroNutraceutical's product apart from the rest?

Unlike lower grade products, you will not find this product being sold online or by other companies. We have worked with our formulation team to create only top-shelf nutritional dietary supplements. We do not import any ingredients from overseas. Like our other nutirional products, the ChiroThin nutritional support formula is proprietary and uses nothing but high grade ingredients. Our unique formula has many advantages like added natural appetite suppressants, energy supplements, detoxification, lean muscle protection, and more. This proprietary formulation was designed to optimize the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program to the fullest. Patients frequently report to us that they feel much better and have less hunger issues while taking the ChiroThin formula than when they had tried other weight loss programs. That being said, our ChiroThin nutritional support formula has the highest quality and desired effects.

 

What is the difference between ChiroThin and Prescription HCG?

Prescription HCG is usually pure pharmaceutical grade HCG with no supporting elements to help it perform. Prescription HCG can be very effective but must be obtained and monitored only by a licensed medical physician. This makes it very expensive as well as being against the law to possess it without a prescription. Pure HCG is usually administered by injection only.ChiroNutraceutical’s ChiroThin nutritional support formula is a blend of very specific ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, and cell salts and is designed to help your body function better. When used for improved health or as part of the doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program, along with dietary and behavioral changes, it is safe, effective and affordable.

 

Is ChiroThin safe for men?  

ChiroThin’s proprietary formula is safe for men. In fact, men often experience faster results and more significant results.

 

Will my metabolism slow down if I am on a very low calorie diet?

It is true that when dramatically cutting back on calories, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This is what is referred to as “starvation mode”. “Starvation Mode” occurs because the body attempts to store the most calorie dense material, which happens to be fat (9cal/gm). When very specific dietary/behavioral changes are used in conjunction with the ChiroThin nutritional support formula, the body will more easily perform the process of fatty acid transportation and metabolism. This will aid your body in mobilizing and utilizing fat to give you the calories that are needed. The ChiroThin nutritional support formula, when combined with doctor supervision and a specific blend of low glycemic index/anti-inflammatory foods, will help to keep the body from going into starvation mode by allowing fat to be more easily burned to make up the caloric deficit.

 

Wouldn't I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet? 

While a person will lose weight while on a VLCD without the additional nutritional support provided by the ChiroThin formula, the body will rapidly go into “starvation mode”. Starvation mode is a protective function of the human body. When an individual consumes fewer calories than they consume over a prolonged period of time, the human body will actually slow down the metabolism, start burning muscle for energy, and attempt to store any fat that is consumed. This is extremely unhealthy and will only cause a massive rebound weight gain when the VLCD is discontinued. Additionally, an individual should never attempt a VLCD without physician supervision. By using the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program as directed, in combination with a specific blend and portion of low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods, the body will be more effective at fatty acid transportation and fatty acid metabolism.

 

Will I get hungry?

While it is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days, this sensation will usually stop after 4-6 days. By the end of the first week you will find your servings to be satisfying. This is because ChiroThin’s proprietary formula is specifically blended with additional ingredients to aid in blood sugar stabilization as well as natural hunger and craving suppressors. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body is being given the substances it needs to more easily access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking 80-120 ounces of water per day will additionally act as an extra hunger suppressant and help keep your energy level high. As a “rule of thumb” the average person on ChiroThin has plenty of energy and feels good while on the program.

 

Will ChiroThin interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera injections?

The ingredients and dosages contained within the ChiroThin nutritional support formula have not been shown to interact with any medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera. Even though there are currently no clinically proven side effects to ChiroThin, as with any diet, we do recommend consulting with your doctor to make sure the doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program is appropriate for you.

 

Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking ChiroThin?  

There are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, ChiroThin will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant. It is best to avoid starting the ChiroThin program if you are within 5-6 days of your menstrual cycle. Wait until after your menstrual cycle is complete to start ChiroThin. Once on ChiroThin and you have a menstrual cycle, you can maintain the diet and continue taking the nutritional support formula. If you are currently taking fertility medications, we advise against starting ChiroThin program.

 

What about pregnancy and taking ChiroThin?

If you are pregnant do not take ChiroThin. If you become pregnant during the ChiroThin program, immediately stop taking ChiroThin and consult your physician.

 

How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?

While weight loss will vary by person, most people, who adhere to the Doctor Supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program, have lost between 20-35 pounds on the 42-day program. Everyone is different. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have, how much weight needs to be lost, and your adherence to the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program.

 

Does the weight loss slow down after the first two weeks?

Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a gradual slowing of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.

 

Is it ok to skip a meal or protein at one of my meals?

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never skip any of your meals. It’s important to eat all of your allotted food. It is especially important that you consume the full portions of protein. Additionally, do not move portions of food from one meal to the next.

 

Can I exercise daily?

While on the ChiroThin program we only recommend light exercise if you desire. 20 minutes of low intensity walking is acceptable. When exercising, the body burns calories. Because the body is not able to metabolize fat as fast as it is burned with exercise, you have a significantly greater chance for injury due to rapid onset fatigue. We simply ask that you give us 42 days with minimal exercise. Once you are done with the 42 days, we strongly encourage exercising.
