A Look into Transformations 360 at Living Well

Living Well Dallas has now paired with the Diabetes Prevention Institute launching the Transformations 360 Program to our clients.  TRANSFORMATIONS360 logo

The Transformations 360 Program begins with completing a 296 wellness evaluation questionnaire based on an individual’s 15 key health markers, creating your WICO score. WICO™ Score was developed to aid in the identification of your wellness index and provide prevention and wellness methods for the assistance of reversing pre-diabetes & weight management, getting patients off lifestyle induced medications and more.

You then go onto a dietary program that bio-chemically sets your body to use your excess abdominal fat for fuel. You will typically feel better than normal, while on the program, with heightened energy and mental state, while having NO hunger or cravings.  After completing the 5 week program or within 5 pounds of your goal, you will retake the questionnaire, recalculating your WICO score.  This will allow healthcare professionals to pinpoint root causes to your symptoms while determining what chronic conditions need more than just lifestyle adjustments.


How Transformations360 Works:

Three meals are taken every day where whole foods (no process, packaged, frozen or canned foods) are eaten with a protein and good carbohydrate at each meal. The food list includes all proteins including eggs, cheese and tofu, and vegetables except for starchy ones like corn and potato. A choice of lower glycemic fruits can be consumed for dessert.

In between meals, a beverage drink is consumed to replace any cravings and ensure balanced blood sugar, while providing the body with all the key nutrients (amino acids, minerals and vitamins), that are needed in a very bio-available manner. This is not a meal replacement or a shake, but just 2-3 ounces of water, mixed with 10 grams of a protein powder that is delicious that comes in different flavors.  Both dairy and non dairy options are available.   This is consumed twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon.

Why we like Transformations360: 

This program allows you to correct unhealthy wellness markers by making simple lifestyle changes.  The program uses REAL FOOD and not shakes or meal replacement bars.  At Living Well we believe Food is Medicine and learning how to eat well will in turn allow you to LIVE WELL. Transformations360 allows you to take control of your health, see results and move forward maintaining a healthier stance on life.

The Great MCT Oil Hype


By Betty Murray

Many times, people avoid eating any kind of fat because they have fallen prey to the belief that all fat is bad fat. In reality, there are some types of fat are good for your brain, and may even help with weight loss. Do you know what kinds of fats to look for?

Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are one type of saturated fat that is good for you. In comparison to the long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) or long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) found in vegetable or seed oils, the body can easily break down and process MCTs, improving energy and increasing fat burn.

This is because MCTs are much smaller and therefore easily digested. The liver immediately burns them up as energy, whereas LCTs are much larger and more difficult for the body to breakdown. Instead, the body will store LCTs as fat.

Where to find MCT oils

One of the richest sources of MCT oils is organic coconut oil, which is 75 percent MCT oil. Coconut oil is a saturated fat, but it is good for you. That’s because the saturated fat in coconut oil is naturally occurring, compared to the man-made process that artificially creates vegetable and seed oil by adding hydrogen while heating the oil — a process that has no health benefits whatsoever.

Coconut oil has been used by centuries by people living in tropical regions, such as the South Pacific Islands, and though it is a saturated fat, studies have shown that heart disease is virtually non-existent in these parts of the world. Because the saturated fat in coconut oil is natural.

Benefits of coconut oil

There are health numerous benefits of coconut oil, including:

  • Reduced risk of heart disease.
  • Improved thyroid function.
  • Increased metabolism.
  • Promoting weight loss and health body composition.
  • Boosting immune system health and response.
  • Anti-aging, regenerative effects on the skin.
  • Improved cognitive function and memory.

Vegetable oils are almost always genetically modified and produce toxic chemicals when used for cooking. Coconut oil is the only oil that can withstand heat when cooking and provides health benefits no other oil can.

By avoiding fats altogether, you are missing out on the health benefits of good-for-you fats, such as coconut oil. Look for organic coconut oil found at Whole Foods, Sprouts and in the organic section of most grocery stores.
