Fat Burning or Fat Restoring

How to Keep Track of Clients

Today’s question is how to tell if a patient is burning or storing fat?

One way is to get a body composition analysis that will tell you right then and there if they are burning fat or not.

Another option may be for the patient to take their measurements with measuring tape on different parts of their body, like around their arms, neck, thighs, hips, and waist.

You want to keep track of the body composition of your patients because when people lose body fat they can end up replacing it with lean muscle which a scale alone won’t be able to track that sort of progress.

It’s important to know where your patients are in their weight loss journey so you can help them keep up with the program.

By keeping all of this in mind we can help people lose weight with ChiroThin and track their progress so we can get them to a healthy weight.

How Do You Guarantee Results For Your Clients In Your Practice?

How we get Results

You may be wondering how I guarantee that our patients lose weight.

I’m able to guarantee that they lose at least 20 pounds in six weeks, provided they don’t cheat and stay in communication with me if there are any problems.

The clients put down a lot of money, so I want to make sure they know that we are dedicated and willing to stick with them until their goal is met.

If the patient is unable to lose weight within this timeframe, we keep working with them until they do.

By sticking with our patients we are able to ensure that more of them reach their weight loss goals.

Entrepreneur Vs Clinic Owner

ChiroThin, Who is it For?

A lot of people have asked, “What kind of practice is ChiroThin for?

Do you have to be very entrepreneurial to implement this program in your practice?”

The answer is no.

Chiropractors of all kinds exist, whether they just do chiropractic adjustments as their main and only service, or they provide extra services on top of that.

Like other programs designed to help chiropractors help patients lose weight ChiroThin can be all about helping your community be healthier!

This means that you and all of your patients can lose weight together with ChiroThin making everyone healthier.

This Machine Has Done More For Patients And Practice More Than Ever

The Machine Works With You

Aloha! Today I’m going to share with you the one thing I have in this office that has helped me get a lot of chiropractic patients on board with our weight loss program.

That is some technology called a body comp analysis.

What Is A Body Comp Analysis?

These body comp analysis machines can go anywhere from under $100 to $3,000, and the one I’m using is just under $700.

I’m going to show it to you today; this is a body composition analysis that I’ve been having and using successfully now for the last six years.

You stand on this scale for a few seconds, and it read things.

There are four translucent electrodes on there.

Then it goes to the computer here.

And there’s the other thing you need — a simple laptop.

The report goes in here automatically. It gives all the data from what is found on the scale.

Then when I print it, I print it to a simple printer like this and get a nice, amazing report.

This report tells me a lot.

It tells me what their BMI is.

It tells me what their body fat percentage is.

It tells me how hydrated are they are. Are they drinking enough water?

It also tells us how much visceral fat they have.

That’s added inflammatory fat — the fat behind the fat/

This is the fat that wraps around their organs and things like that.

Stuff that just causes type two diabetes, heart disease, cancers, and more.

But most importantly, it tells us what is their true metabolic age versus their chronological age.

Let’s just say I could have a 34-year-old person in here and they have the metabolism so old who’s 90.

So instead of distancing themselves from a disease process, they’re rapidly accelerating towards one.

Instead of having a fat-burning metabolism, they have a fat-storing one.

You can use all kinds of examples like that, but it gets people present to just how bad of a situation they have and they need to take action now.

Best Data = Best Results

We have the best results, and it’s because we have the best data.

Tracking Results

Every two weeks, we run a body comp analysis report.

If I want to track them daily, I could see how they’re doing day to day and also graph it.

We have an exclusive ChiroThin tracker for ChiroThin users only that allows us to see progress through graphing.

For example, we can see across six days how a patient has changed.

One individual has lost over 38 pounds in 13 days all because they’re doing the ChiroThin system.

That is incredible.

Our ChiroThin tracker shows that he already beat one of his objectives, and that was to lose 30 pounds in just six weeks.

He beat that in 13 DAYS!

Showing Results

Yes, this patient has a lot of weight to lose.

But at the same time, we’re showing him progress — he may have a lot to go, but he’s lost a lot, too.

The progress keeps getting better and better.

The patient has access to this, because when they open up their app, PROGRESS is the first thing they see.

We could just tell people how they’re doing in real time, every single day.

Working With The App

I always tell my patients — “Remember, you’re never alone.

We see and respond to every time you report in the tracker, which is daily, because we don’t want you to feel alone.

We want you to know that you are rocking out.

If you’re having some problems, well, this gives us an opportunity to go back to you to ask if you need assistance or if there’s any way we can help.”

That way, they get a first-class concierge service, and they pay you a nice suit for that.

What I Learned When I First Added Weight Loss

Here are some of the things I’ve learned when I first added weight loss to my practice over six years ago.
 
Hopefully, they’ll help you as you incorporate weight loss into your practice, too.
 
First, it’s going to take a little time to grasp the concept and understand your procedures.
 
Be patient.
 
You’re adding something entirely new for your office that you’ve never done before — but you’re not alone!
 
It’s not uncommon to have a team member be your assistant with your weight loss programs.
 
They can manage your patient flow, and help keep things moving smoothly in your office while they’re there. They can interact with the patients, and all you have to do is supervise them.
 
As you incorporate weight loss into your practice, give yourself time to learn and be okay with making mistakes. It’s really okay.
 
It’s a lot to take on, and you may have some bumps in the road.
 
There are plenty of resources for weight loss that can help guide your practice through this transition from just a chiropractic office to an integrated medical wellness center. Check out our page to see more!

How to Market Weight Loss to Your Patients

How do you market weight loss to your existing patient base?
 
There are two simple ways you can do this.
 
First, send an email to both your active and inactive patients letting them know about your awesome new weight loss program.
 
Second, you can put up a sign with the name of your weight loss program at the front desk. This way, when patients come in for another appointment they’ll see it and might be interested in trying it out to help them lose those last few pounds that are so difficult to get rid of.
 
You could even have a trifold stating, “It’s Weight Loss Season!” or “Don’t you want to lose a few pounds for Lent” and then list the benefits of your weight loss program.
 
Those are some of the easiest ways you could start creating a buzz in your office with your active or non-active non-active patients about the new and exciting weight loss program in your practice.

What Made Me Decide To Go ALL IN On Weight Loss

A great question I’ve recently heard is, “How do you know if someone is a proper fit for your weight loss program?”

First, find anyone that’s overweight. Anyone that’s overweight by 10 or 20 pounds or more is definitely a good fit.

You’re looking for anyone that is dealing with a lot of systemic things — like maybe type two diabetes, high blood pressure, or digestive distress. They’re not sleeping well at night. Their skin looks horrible. They look older than they actually are.

Don’t forget to do this with your active patient, and ask them if they know anyone else that is looking to lose weight in a doctor-supervised and healthy manner.

Those are some of the best ways to find out who’s qualified in your clinic.

People the are most qualified in your clinic are the ones that really want to get healthy. They’re following your chiropractic treatment programs. They’re very receptive to doing something different, and they’re willing to do what it takes to make a difference in their health, even if they know they’re going to miss out on certain foods that they’re going to want to have over the next 6-8 weeks.

Those are the perfect people that you want to target– your qualified candidates to start your ChiroThin weight loss program.

Biggest Mistakes Doctors Make When Adding Weight Loss

The most popular question that others ask me is, “What is the most common mistake that doctors make when adding weight loss to their practice?”
 
They dive in and jump right in without a lot of thought, planning, or consideration.
 
First, you want to find out who in your patient base is a candidate for weight loss.
 
Who has been dealing with digestive problems?
 
Maybe they’re diabetic, or have high blood pressure due to them being overweight. Maybe they’re coming to see you because they have low back pain; they have too much in front of them instead of behind them.
 
Many doctors make these mistakes.
 
They just go out there and immediately run ads, instead of looking at their patient base and warm audience.
 
Look at your warm market and start with one or two patients to get the program started. That way, it’s a learning experience, and you don’t feel so overwhelmed.
