Factors Keeping You From

Losing Weight!

  • Unknown Hormonal Imbalances

    Unknown hormonal imbalances can be a major contributing factor in the inability to lose weight, especially in middle age and older females. It is estimated that up to 50 percent of Americans suffer from some form of sub-clinical hormonal imbalance, but most have no idea!

  • Environmental Stressors

    Environmental stressors from synthetic substances such as alcohol, cigarettes, household cleaners, medications, and food preservatives block weight loss at the cellular level and can even increase your cravings for bad foods!

  • Emotional and Psychological Reasons

    Emotional and psychological needs play a small or potentially large role in the way everyone eats. For some the emotional attachment to food is much stronger and fulfills a sense of certainty and comfort. Some even blame themselves for not having more willpower but for the majority of us this association is controlled mainly by the food we eat!

The holistic approach of the Body Balance Weight Loss program is why it truly works!

How many times have you seen that headline? Well, here at Body Balance we're not about catchy headlines, our constant focus is on results. In the end the results from past participants of the weight loss program are all that is needed to show that we have something really special here. You can view our fantastic weight loss results and see for yourself but first let me tell you why this program really works and how it is different than anything else out there!

We built this program by studying the common and not so common causes of weight gain and difficulty with weight loss and maintaining weight loss. We found too many programs place all their focus on restricting calories, reducing one major food group or relying on some new drug or state of the art supplement. Furthermore, most programs require too much concentration from the participant early on and have little to no personalization. This is a big program because not everyone loses weight the same way! Eating less and exercising more does not work for everyone!

We sat down and poured over the new and old research regarding weight loss and determined the key factors involved in gaining or losing weight and maintaining results. From this we designed a weight loss program that addresses each of these key factors which allows us to personalize the program to meet participants individual weight loss needs! We found that the top 7 reasons why Americans gain weight or have difficulty losing weight and maintaining weight loss were both simple and complex. Here are the top 7 reasons why people struggle with weight loss and maintaining results:

  • Unknown hormonal imbalance
  • Environmental stressors
  • Emotional and psychological needs
  • Not exercising right or not exercising at all
  • Unable to regulate appetite and cravings
  • Worrying too much about decreasing fat and restricting calories
  • Not in the right place mentally

Most weight loss programs attempt to address two, maybe three of these problems but really only fully address one. At Body Balance Weight Loss we are confident, and our results show, that we have built a program that addresses all of these factors!

What Makes Our Weight Loss Program Successful?

Personalization and addressing the 7 reasons why Americans gain weight and struggle with weight loss is what makes our program unique, this page will explain the various parts of the program that make it so successful. In order to address the 7 main reasons for weight issues we had to create a program with multiple parts which, progressed in a logical order that was both simple and customizable to the participant. In doing so we came up with 5 areas of focus which encompass virtually all key factors of successful weight loss:

  • Metabolism
  • Appetite
  • Mentality
  • Hormones
  • Fitness

We determined that if someone could make a lasting change in only these 5 key areas that they could easily lose weight and maintain the weight loss. Furthermore, placing emphasis on the most troubling areas per individual enabled us to personalize the program and increase effectiveness. Our priority throughout the program is to maintain a customized or personalized element which is why I always tell the participants that they are making the decisions regarding the direction of the program. This is very important because when participants are forced to comply with the same plan and not given any say, follow-through drops very quickly. In order to treat those 5 key areas the program itself consists of 5 "key choices."

  1. Whole Body Expert Analysis
  2. Total Detox Purification
  3. Coaching, Education, and Motivation
  4. Appetite and Metabolism Modification
  5. Exercise Smarter, Not Harder

Through these 5 "key choices" weight loss is achieved, and you decide how much emphasis is placed in each to maximize your results! It does not get any more personalized than that!

Chiropractic Western Springs IL Apple For Weight Loss


COLLEEN M. – Dr. Michelle Boyd’s mom

Colleen was the pioneer patient for the Ideal Protein Program at Back in Balance. Colleen is Dr. Michelle’s mom and had a very motivating reason to begin doing the program. Colleen was diagnosed with type two diabetes five years ago and was devastated by the prognosis of this disease. As many of you know, diabetes is a degenerative disease that can lead to many serious health issues as time goes on which can be life-threatening. Colleen very much wanted to take charge of her health and knew weight-loss and a change in diet was the only way she could make that change. The Ideal Protein program with it structured and easy to follow protocol, seemed like a great start.

4 1/2 months later, Colleen has met her goal! She has lost 35 pounds, her BMI is 23.8, in the healthy range, which is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height. The most exciting part of her success story is that her hemoglobin A1c is now 5.4%, which means that she no longer has diabetes! The level of hemoglobin A1c in the blood is measured as a means of determining the average blood sugar concentrations for the preceding two to three months, and is the gold standard of determining the diagnosis of diabetes and its progression. We are so proud of Colleen and her success and paving the way for a phenomenal nutrition and weight loss program for Back in Balance!

Thank you Colleen!

Dr. Michelle McPolin Boyd - Program Director
I am the owner and a Chiropractic Physician/Acupuncturist at Back in Balance for the past 20 years. We have been utilizing this protocol to help patients lose weight and get healthy for the past 4 years.

The Body Balance program’s unique low carb, low fat, high protein ketogenic diet is the MOST effective diet I have ever done. The science behind the protocol is amazing because, it truly resets your metabolism and insulin response to sugar/carbs by burning your fat for fuel. You lose fat/weight and maintain your lean muscle. I was finally able to do the protocol after I had my 4th baby. I lost 8lbs, and went from 25% body fat to 20%! But more than anything, I felt amazing, I had more energy, was sleeping better, felt calmer and happier. Where ever you are in your state of health, Body Balance can help you get your health back!
