Your BioSignature & Weight Loss
The Synergy approach to weight loss is based on the work of Charles Poloquin, a world class Canadian strength coach who has worked with elite athletes for over 30 years (including Olympic gold medalist sprinter Donovan Bailey). Poloquin developed the BioSignature Method after witnessing certain trends in his clients, where they stored fat on their bodies and how that affected their ability to lose weight. Further scientific evidence shows that where we store fat reflects our hormonal profile. And this profile (your BioSignature) actually offers a blueprint for faster and easier fat loss.
The BioSignature Method goes far beyond a typical body fat testing and allows our trainers to develop a customized, highly specific, personal plan for each of our clients that involves a combination of diet, exercise, targeted supplementation, and lifestyle modifications. Ultimately this means less work for faster and more effective weight loss results.

“BioSignature offers a rapid assessment tool of one’s hormonal health to individualize and monitor the patient’s protocols to achieve optimal metabolic health. It combines the best of Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western medical systems has to offer to the patient.”

Benefits of a Paleolithic Diet
The other part of the Synergy approach involves a diet guided by the principles of a high protein, healthy carbohydrate nutritional philosophy known as Paleolithic (or Paleo, Caveman, Stone Age or Hunter-Gatherer diet). We have found this to be even more effective than regimes such as the Zone diet in facilitating easy and effective weight loss. The basic rules of a Paleo Diet involve eating a natural diet rich in animal fat and protein and low in carbohydrates. In other words, lots of meat and vegetables with little to no processed foods. Many nutritionists and scientists believe a Paleolithic diet and lifestyle might be an effective weapon against the adverse effects of modern indulgence, reducing risk of heart disease, cancer, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions.
