Dedicated to helping you regain and maintain your healthy habits, weight loss goals, and active lifestyle, Vero Orthopaedics offers a comprehensive weight management program using the ITG Diet® Plan. Unlike other weight loss programs, diets, nutrition plans, and exercise programs, the ITG Diet is a real food, real nutrition diet made to help you easily lose pounds and provide education on keeping them off. As a medical weight loss program, the ITG Diet is also designed to help you manage or eliminate certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure.
Whether you're looking to reduce joint and muscle aches and pains, lower your health risks before surgery, or shed those extra pounds that just won’t come off, our weight management experts have the specialized training and knowledge to help you lose weight and keep it off.
At Vero Orthopaedics, we are dedicated to preventative care. Our ITG Diet providers specialize in weight loss supplementation and counseling to work one-on-one with our patients to help them make life changes for satisfying and long-lasting results. From a decrease in blood sugar, weight, or blood pressure to maintaining a regular exercise regimen, we are committed to helping our patients accomplish their health goals and offer consultation at our offices in Vero Beach and Sebastian, Florida.
The ITG Diet Mission
The ITG Diet is committed to helping health-conscious people achieve their health and wellness goals with education, tools, and products for weight control and weight-related chronic diseases. We understand how difficult it is to lose the weight and to keep it off. Most of our dieters are individuals who want a proven and painless plan with guidance and access to the many tools our dieters enjoy. Whatever your situation, the ITG Diet is here to provide the level of support you desire!
With many weight loss programs, dieters are often losing more than pounds, they are often losing nutrition. Additionally, so many diet programs lead to yo-yo dieting and short-term weight loss that doesn't help anyone make the right food choices and lifestyle changes later.
ITG Diet Plan Overview
Our diet plan offering is a low-carb, low-calorie ketogenic plan. You will be eating approximately 40 – 60 grams of carbohydrates per day and consuming approximately 1,000 – 1,200 calories per day. Your body will actually go into mild ketosis, which simply means the body is in a fat-burning mode.
This evidence-based, easy-to-follow medical weight management program will help you lose weight and keep it off because you'll shed fat instead of muscle. You'll maintain your muscle mass, lose the fat, and you'll also learn how to make better eating choices rather than simply eliminating tempting foods from your diet.
You’ll have a trained professional coach throughout the program, and even after you have completed the plan, you'll be provided with the necessary training, materials, and education to maintain your healthy lifestyle.
The 3-Step Plan
The ITG Plan allows you to lose weight with minimal effort compared to most other diets that require purchasing various foods and ingredients and following complicated recipes. With the convenience of ITG proteins and many available recipes, you have the option of keeping it very simple or getting creative.
Step 1 – Weight Loss: You will start out using a protein supplement as the basis of three of your four meals each day. This provides you with the healthy protein necessary to protect and maintain your calorie-burning muscles while you burn stored fat. You will follow this until you have reached 100% of your weight loss goal.
Step 2 – Transition: Step two is the key to successfully stabilizing your weight loss. You will slowly reintroduce moderate amounts of fruits, fats, and carbohydrates to your diet each week for four transitional weeks. This allows your body to readjust to producing the insulin needed.
Step 3 – Success for Life: You will continue to eat the way you've been taught. By this time, you will have learned to choose healthy foods and eat a balanced diet to maintain your new, healthy weight.
