5 Weight Loss Strategies That Will Help You Lose Weight

Over the years I have tried many different approaches to losing weight and keeping it off. Weight loss resistance is a real issue for a lot of my clients and followers, so today I’m sharing the top 5 weight loss strategies that have helped me and many of my Resetters lose weight for good.


Weight loss strategy #1:

Fasting, and optimize your fasting window. Fasting is hopefully something you’ve integrated in into your lifestyle. But there are many different types of fasting and finding the right one for your body requires a bit of experimentation. There are a couple ways to troubleshoot fasting if you’re not seeing results. One thing you may want to try is increasing your fasting window. For example, the 3:3:1 fast requires 3 days of 17 hour fasting, 3 days of 24 hour fasting, and 1 day of 36 hour fasting that extends into the following week.

Weight loss strategy #2:

Give these two types of fasts a try. There are 2 types of 17 hour fast variations I have tried; the carnivore and vegan diet. I recommend trying both and experimenting with which one works best for you. As I talked about in my last post, the ratios of good to bad bacteria in your gut microbiome will also help determine which is better for you. These ratios can be identified by the Gut Zoomer test. More about this below.

Weight loss strategy #3:

Do a 90 day cellular detox. Sometimes you may be doing all the right things but your body is simply blocked by an accumulation of environmental and chemical toxins….think mercury, lead, synthetic chemicals in fragrances, pollution, pesticides in food, etc. Toxins get stored deep in fat, to keep them away from vital organs. Often, a deep detox is necessary to pull out and release these toxins before you’ll see weight loss results. If you think this might be you, join the Toxin Reset.

Weight loss strategy #4:

Don’t guess, test. This strategy involves getting your gut bacteria ratios into balance. If you haven’t read my last email about microbiome balance, you can do so here. There are two important ratios you should keep balanced in our gut microbiome. First, the Firmicutes / Bacteroidetes ratio (F/B) and second, the Prevotella / Bacteroidetes ratio (P/B). When the ratios are high, you will struggle to lose weight. The best approach to know exactly what your ratios are. This can be done via stool sample with a Gut Zoomer test.

Weight loss strategy #5:

Stop stressing! Stress affects our body in many ways, including our ability to lose weight. Stress slows our metabolism and encourages the body to store fat. So if you’ve done everything to lose weight and it’s not coming off, take a deep breath and give yourself a break. Be kind to your body and be playful when it comes to dropping that weight.

Dear Family Life Wellness Community,

It’s with incredible sadness that I bring you the news that as of Friday September 16, 2022 our clinic will officially close. As you can imagine, this decision was not an easy one to make. There has been a tremendous amount of soul searching and thoughtful processing that has gone into this moment. Taking in the considerations of everyone has been a top priority for me as I have navigated this tough decision.

Here’s the first thing I want you to know-you are loved. For the past twenty-six years so many of you have brought your families to our clinic weekly for health, inspiration and community. Please know that I have taken that responsibility as an incredible honor. My team and I have been so blessed to watch your kids grow up, celebrate your wins with you, and cry with you as you’ve moved through turbulent times in your lives. One of the hardest parts of this moment is that we won’t be connected with you in that same way. Know that although our clinic will not operate as it has for the past two decades, our hearts are still connected to you and your families.

As new career opportunities have emerged for me, I want you to know that my passion for chiropractic has never died. I feel so strongly that every human on this planet needs chiropractic care. I personally continue to get weekly adjustments, and hope that you will do the same. To make this transition as smooth as possible we have a list of amazing chiropractors that I have personally reached out to and will welcome you with loving arms. I can tell you with certainty you will get amazing care at any of these clinics. Please lean into them. As far as the biohacking center goes, for now that part of our clinic will be closed as well. New solutions for our space are being explored, but until we have something concrete there will be no biohacking . Lastly, I want to give my deepest gratitude to Dana. She has been the heart of our community for the past decade. I could not have run this practice without her. Yet, I am so excited for her as she has an incredible career opportunity that has presented itself.  As my heart is heavy in making this decision, what fills me with joy is the beautiful life she will be stepping into. A life she greatly deserves.

My practice has never been just a business. It’s been a family. Thank you for entrusting us with your health. It truly will go down as the greatest honor of my life. As far as what’s next, of course there needs to be a celebration. One in which we can gather one last time as a community. Please stay tuned to the exact date of that celebration.

From Dana, myself, and Dr. Tri please know that we believe in you. We know what a miraculous body you are living in and that extraordinary health is a choice you get to step into everyday. We will always be in your front row cheering you on.
With gratitude, love , and a huge hug,
Dr. Mindy
