An introduction from Toronto based, Naturopathic Doctor Natasha Turner to The Hormone Diet Approach to Ketosis and Fat Loss…
According to the latest research, about 96 percent of people tend to gain weight back—plus more— with the typical approach of cutting calories/exercising more. Clearly, this does not work and only leads to future weight gain, to say nothing of metabolic damage as thyroid hormones drop and precious metabolically active muscle is lost.
I have learned that the same weight loss tricks that worked at 30 years old, don’t always offer the same results now. So, just recently, I made it my mission to find a fat loss solution – that sticks! I still hold true to the principles of hormonal balance outlined in The Hormone Diet, but I have evolved the plan to specifically target the science of fat loss.
We truly specialize in finding the cause for your weight loss woes. I am a perfect example of this. After years of wondering why I was unable to lose my added pounds all the while working out and following my own dieting techniques I finally uncovered the true reason. Read about my journey here.
My new approach with my patients is based on a philosophy that is simple: when you exercise less, I want to help you to eat less; and when you exercise more, I will guide you on the best food options—when you should eat more. Your dietary habits, how much you move, and how much you exercise are inseparable. I want you to start living each day by asking yourself this question: How much am I going to move today? Your answer to this question will determine your diet habits for the day – including what you eat when you eat it and how much. You should let go of the mentality of adopting an “eat less, move more” approach as it sets us up for failure. The answer is simple – yet so commonly overlooked – when you move more, you should eat more. When you move less – you should eat less. The days you are sitting at your desk or not exercising, are the days we need to take in less so that our body uses the reserves stored in our body as fuel instead.
How can we eat less?
In addition, the key to sticking with this new lifestyle is monitoring your energy, hunger, and cravings so we can adapt your plan to suit your results and how you feel.
Our crucial focus is also on optimizing metabolism via supporting:

To learn more about the importance of protein, muscle and strength as well as why we approach fat loss like we do at Clear Medicine, read the Men’s Health 2015 article which is at the bottom of this page. This is a fantastic summary and I share it with all of my patients to educate them on avoiding weight loss versus fat loss and keeping strong, no matter how old they are. What we do here is very special! This proves it.

We offer the only structured weight loss program that specializes in solving weight loss resistance.
