FREE Low Carb San Diego Seminar

It’s that time of year again!  Time to reset, plan and consider the new year ahead.  This is the time for us to get back to the basics and refresh the fundamentals of what a healthy lifestyle is all about.  That starts with our daily habits, eating being foremost.  Several clients and friends on our email list and in social media have established a good routine.  Now it is time to invite others to join us in our success.  We’ve been asked to do a repeat version of what we did last year and we have a new and improved version of the low carb seminar classes we did last year at Foothills Christian Church in El Cajon.  This year, they will be at the Grove Church in Mission Valley, San Diego starting:

Tuesday, January 15th at 6:30 pm, with monthly follow up meetings.

Dr, Brian Lenzkes and Jeff Kotterman (me) are really excited about this year’s seminar.  We learned a lot from the first one and now we have the chance to have it in an incredible venue.  The Grove Church SD is a growing congregation centrally located with a sanctuary that can hold 500 people.  Last year, at Foothills, we had close to 200 people at our sessions.  This year we have a chance to include all who came last year and many more.  This will give a chance for Grove members to hear a compatible scientific basis for a low carb, healthy living that is faith-friendly.

So it’s your job to spread the word!  Share this event with friends, family, coworkers and anyone you hope would make healthy choices in 2019.  I know you know people that could use a fun crash course in “Keto 101.”  We need to spread the word now, so people can put this on their calendar.  Don’t miss the chance to save someone from a catastrophic health event in 2019.  This is your chance to help.

Put TriSystem Under the Tree!

It’s that time of year!   Who couldn’t use some gifted sessions to get them started the right way for the new year?  we have discounted Gift Certificates and TriSystem EDGE just in time for Christmas!  Email: Jeff@trisystem.com  Text/phone 619-757-7388 Check out the video:

Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing!

Some people believe they should stay completely away from wheat, gluten and all starches. There a those who stay in ketosis using alternatives to bread, pastries and sweets. They successfully stay low carb with artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohol and modern food products that mimic a high carb diet. This is an interesting method in that in the absence of calorie concern, portion control could get out of control. You could still be in ketosis while consuming way more calories than you need. Consuming Stevia, erythritol, Sucralose and other sweeteners multiple times a day, everyday may cause other imbalances in digestion, hormones and thus, your health.  This could be why you have plateaued!

Tina Kotterman reminds me that treats are just that, treats.  Treats, by definition are not supposed to be eaten everyday.  They are supposed to be things that enhance an event or celebration, not a commonplace food that you expect everyday.  If you develop that mindset, you’ll be able to manage healthy eating better both physiologically and psychologically.  So how is your mindset?

Do you depend on “keto safe” foods that you can eat large quantities of?  or can you eat 1 -2 small slices of a low carb pizza (like the recipe in my newsletter below) and receive the benefit of a small portion of legumes in your diet.  The American habit of eating a whole pizza or even a half of one is in part, one of the reasons we’ve gotten to this modern health dilemma.  There may be valid health conditions that warrant a no bean diet but,  just because it’s not “Paleo” is not a reason to banish all legumes from your diet for ever.  They actually have nutrients in them.

NEWS FLASH: It’s a Family Affair!

Twenty one years ago, Tina and I started TriSystem here in San Diego.  Through raising our children and supporting family living with us, we have kept TriSystem going through it all.  Together, Tina and I along with Kathy and the rest of our TriSystem team, have grown and adapted our nutrition, exercise and supplementation programs to continue to be the most contemporary, research based and effective of anywhere else.  No one does what we do, the way we do it.

For a time, Tina limited her clients to just a few with special needs and in-home training requirements.  Over the last two decades together, we have been in the center and in homes doing everything from shopping with clients to building home gyms and, of course, training at the center.  With the recent new changes in nutrition planning and training, you will see more of our whole family participating at the TriSystem Center.  Noah, Kaetlyn, Tina and I are working together to bring a collaborative service that is more effective and customized than ever before. 

*Tina is now adding additional training session availability to her schedule.  If you’d like to train with Tina please respond in the form below and specifically request her.  Her sessions are filling up quickly.

  • We are now medically supervised by our medical director, Dr. Brian Lenzkes, one of the most recognized physicians in San Diego available for consultation
  • We have new nutrition planning that includes the full spectrum of eating styles from vegan to ketogenic, we have the expertise to develop the individual menus that fit you best.
  • We have new exercise programs that are really effective for those with joint issues or conditions that prohibit traditional exercise.  We are now working with Dr. Ben Bocchicchio to provide his innovative S.Ma.R.T. training.
  • We have also included the Intermittent fasting protocol and research from Dr. Jason Fung.
  • We now have a doctor of Physical Therapy,  Dr. Marc Robinson available for consultations.

Take some time to get a free assessment and see if you can be a part of all the new things going on at the TriSystem Center.
