Why Fall is a Great Time to Join the Aspen Clinic

The leaves are changing, the temperatures are a bit less hot, and football is on the TV- it’s fall! Not only is fall one of the best times of the year, it is also the best time to join the Aspen Clinic of Louisiana! Here are a few reasons why we think you should sign up to start your weight loss journey and embrace healthy habits this fall. 

Spend Some Time Outside

There is nothing quite like the crisp air of the fall season. There couldn’t be a more comfortable time to get outside and start exercising! Take a stroll in one of Louisiana’s beautiful parks, or do a little work out in your backyard! Take advantage of the beautiful weather with the help of the Aspen Clinic’s guidance this fall! 

Post-Summer Restart

It is only human to over-indulge on ice cream and cheeseburgers during the summer. Let us help you get back on track, or even start your weight loss journey and work off the last of the summer indulgences! 

Develop Healthy Habits Before the Holidays

It is so hard to stay on track with your weight loss journey when the holidays roll around. If you join the Aspen Clinic before they arrive, you’ll be able to set yourself up with a sturdy foundation of healthy habits! The Aspen Clinic program is based on lifestyle changes, not temporary dieting. Get some tips on how to maintain those changes before temptation strikes!

The Aspen Clinic vs Noom

Schedule Appointment 

Wondering if the Aspen Clinic’s weight loss program is what will work for you, or if Noom will be more efficient? The Aspen Clinic is here to inform you on how Noom works, and how you can work Noom and The Aspen Clinic program together to change your life completely. 

What is Noom?

Noom is a fitness and weight-loss program. Noom claims to be “the last weightloss program you will ever need.” The Noom app focuses on making changes surrounding dieting. As we have mentioned in a previous post, dieting is never the way to approach weight loss, so it is best to steer clear of that practice and focus on our program at the Aspen Clinic if you are looking for longevity and a true lifestyle change.

The Aspen Clinic program is based on lifestyle changes, not temporary dieting. In summary, our program is designed to increase your metabolism and help you develop a new set of eating and activity habits. We will individualize your program according to your daily caloric needs to ensure that you are losing fat and avoiding the loss of lean muscle mass. We also provide in-person support, something an app like Noom cannot provide.

Cheers to 30 Years!

The Aspen Clinic is celebrating our 30th anniversary and we couldn’t be more excited!

As you probably know, we have 9 locations across Louisiana from Slidell to Lafayette.  It isn’t often that all 9 of our locations (managers and staff) get the opportunity to get together, but once a year we make it happen.

Every January all 9 clinics meet in Baton Rouge for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon to discuss goals, the previous year, the upcoming year, and most importantly, spend some time together.  Our annual meeting ALWAYS starts with a prayer led by our owner Steve Dupuis.  The prayer was followed by a brief story about how Mr. Steve started the Aspen Clinic and how he has gotten to where he is today.

Since we don’t see each other very often, each office takes a moment to stand up and introduce themselves.  It’s always fun to be able to put faces to the names we hear every day over the phone.  Next up, Mr. Steve and his daughter Barbie, the Vice President of Aspen Clinic, give out awards to the employees and clinics who stood out for the year.

Here are the winners:

Part-time Employee of the year: Ashleigh from Harvey

Full-time Employee of the year: Cassidy from Hammond

Salesperson of the year: Brenda from Slidell

Phone Professional of the year: Julianna from Metairie

Manager of the year: Stacy from Lafayette and Aspen Clinic’s 1st employee from 1988!

Top Sales Clinic: Baton Rouge

2017 Clinic of the Year: Baton Rouge

Since we are celebrating our BIG 30th anniversary, we surprised Mr. Steve with a video of each staff member saying thank you for all that he and his family have done for us and shared some of our favorite memories of Aspen Clinic through the years.  The fun continued with a Family-Feud style game where the employees were tested on their knowledge of our supplements, products, program, and medications.  The game got pretty competitive but Shelly’s team took the prize!

We finished up on a more serious note discussing goals and strategies for the upcoming year.  We were introduced to a few new products that you will soon see in our offices.  We are so excited to share all of this new  information with all of you!  To see more photos from our meeting visit our Facebook page.

Congratulations, Mr. Steve on a successful 30 years!

We can’t wait to make 2018 the best year yet!

Aspen Employees: Fitbooker Besties!

You have a 95% higher chance of a achieving a goal with a partner

 

One of the best tips we ALWAYS give to our patients is to find a partner, whether it’s your spouse, co-worker, friend, or family member, losing weight is easier as a team.  Keeping each other accountable with workouts, meal planning, and food journaling is the number one way to stay on track.  One of favorite tools is a 12-week food journal called Fitbook.

 

Two of our employees from the Metairie office started using the Fitbook at the beginning of the year and have now completed 3 books!  Nikki, the manager, and Veronica, a nutritional counselor, were recently featured on the Fitbook’s blog discussing their experience using the book, why using it together made them more successful, and all of their favorite things about Fitbook.

Aspen Employees Continuing Education

Last week the employees of Aspen Clinic were surprised with a visit from Mr. Randy, the mastermind behind each of our supplements. Mr. Randy has been formulating our supplements since 2011. We were incredibly lucky to meet him and get the opportunity to incorporate his expertise into our program.  His clients consist of professional athletes and sports teams, including some of the world’s top PGA golfers, cancer patients, people diagnosed with “irreversible diseases”, and many others taking an all-natural, holistic approach to their health.  These are just a few of the reasons we were so excited to get the opportunity to work alongside Mr. Randy to offer the most natural products to our patients.

Since working with Mr. Randy to re-formulate all of our supplements we have seen unbelievable results not only in our patients’ weight loss, but also overall health. Our patients have experienced changes in digestive health, mental health, discontinuation of prescription medications, and even some reversal of disease.

At the Aspen Clinic we are always continuing our education, whether it’s trying new products or researching the latest trends in weight loss, we do our best to stay up-to-date and informed. However, nothing compares to getting the chance to see our products working first-hand. When Mr. Randy went to each Aspen location he did a blood analysis on every employee and was able to give us feedback on deficiencies, problems with digestion, and make supplement recommendations based off of these results. It was eye opening for the employees who got to participate for the first time. Many employees discovered B-Vitamin and Iron deficiencies, while others learned the importance of taking digestive enzymes.  The employees who had met Mr. Randy in the past were able to see the effects of implementing his recommendations into their daily regimen.

Abby, from the Metairie location, was able to see the benefits of our Total Digestive Enzymes within just 30 minutes of taking 2 capsules.  Before taking enzymes, her red blood cells were clumped together and unable to flow freely due to the high amounts of undigested protein in her blood. The enzymes immediately went into effect and we were able to see a visible change when he took her blood the second time (post enzymes).

The first photo shows Abby’s blood as Rouleaux blood.  Rouleaux blood is a roll of red blood cells (RBC’s) resembling a pile of coins, which can be caused by protein indigestion and physical/mental stress.  Rouleaux causes poor circulation of blood and therefore decreases the amount of oxygen and nutrients available for the body to use.  This condition produces symptoms of fatigue, weakness, poor digestion, and possible edema.  The second photo is approximately 30 minutes post taking our Total Digestive Enzymes and shows her RBC’s already separating and no longer stacked together.  The digestive enzyme protease, used to digest protein, is quickly hard at work removing undigested proteins from her blood.  The small white dots in the middle of her RBC’s indicate an Iron deficiency.  Abby was recommended to take 2 Total Digestive Enzymes with each meal and add 2 capsules of Aspen Iron to her daily routine.

We recently did a blog post on the difference between natural and synthetic supplements (Natural vs. Synthetic Supplements & Why It Matters), and we all preach to our patients that taking synthetic vitamins can be detrimental to their health. While all of our employees are educated on the importance of taking all-natural, whole food based supplements, being able to see them working in their own bodies made the staff even more eager to teach our patients about the benefits our supplements provide.

Our staff is dying to tell you what they learned about our products, so make sure you ask which supplements will be best for you at your next Doctor’s visit!
