What is FirstLine Therapy?

FirstLine Therapy is a comprehensive lifestyle change program that targets the underlying cause of your chronic conditions by developing a customized food plan for you. By the end of the 12-week program, you will feel better about your health, weight, and self-image!

Your FirstLine Diet Plan

Don’t be fooled; weight loss isn’t just about losing fat. While some healthcare practitioners believe that achieving a certain body mass index (BMI) is the key to weight loss, we know that it’s more important to look at the proportion of fat and fat-free mass in your body, known as body composition. We want to facilitate fat loss, but also increase your muscle mass.

To begin your FirstLine Therapy treatment, you’ll meet with expert Dr. Cabrera to create a unique, customized program based on your health and any medical conditions you may have. This will include a personalized diet plan, filled with low-glycemic-index foods that won’t quickly raise your blood sugar.

This means that you’ll be frequently eating foods like:

  • Lettuce
  • Almonds
  • Brown rice
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Wild salmon

Delicious! Low-glycemic diets are effective at treating obesity, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes, and by stabilizing your blood sugar, you will maintain your energy levels and not feel as hungry. Besides specific food recommendations, you may also be given personally-customized medical food and dietary supplements to address your specific nutritional needs.

What Else Should I Expect from FirstLine Therapy?

Besides creating a healthy diet, Dr. Cabrera will also ensure that you engage in regular physical activity and undergo biweekly visits with a lifestyle counselor for lifestyle and behavior coaching. This lifestyle counselor will also run a series of tests to analyze your:

  • Lean body mass
  • Fat mass
  • Muscle mass
  • Water weight

With these tests, you’ll be able to see how your FirstLine Therapy diet is changing your body composition, and ensure that you’re losing the weight you want!
