THE PROGRAM

What is SOTA WeightLoss® All About?

SOTA Weightloss® is multifaceted in the relationship between obesity, addiction, obesity reversal, nutrition, diet, weight loss, weight management, and the mental emotional aspects of client care considerations.

SOTA WeightLoss® is a fat loss dietary protocol. To use the term “weight loss” can be a bit of a misnomer. SOTA’s dietary protocol purpose and objective is to release the fat-mass in the belly. This stubborn weight-gain is called Visceral fat, it is deposited deep in the belly, in and around the vital internal organs, it is this type of fat that accumulates to protrude the belly.

Visceral fat is a seriously dangerous fat that is the primary risk factor for overweight-related health conditions such as; Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, fatty liver disease, hormone imbalance, various forms of cancer.

The SOTA dietary protocol is designed to keep the blood sugar balanced with the appetite under control, and with you feeling satisfied and satiated. We do not want clients hungry on their program, hunger while dieting is counterproductive for successful results.

 

  1. SOTA’s dietary protocol is designed to keep the blood sugar balanced, the appetite under control, with you feeling satisfied and satiated. We do not want clients hungry on their program. Hunger while dieting is counterproductive for successful results.
  2. SOTA WeightLoss® is NOT low calorie. Your calorie count is very generous per a diet.
  3. SOTA Weightloss® does not sell anything — no pills, no shots, no herbals, nor supplements. SOTA only charges for nutritionist coaching and support.
  4. SOTA dietary protocol reduces those carbs/sugars in a client’s current eating style that is the cause for stubborn fat-weight gain and resulting health concerns.
  5. SOTA WeightLoss® is not keto. “Keto” is a term used by many people, and there are many different definitions of keto. True keto is high fat, high protein, and is not an advised dietary protocol for healthy weight loss.

Is the SOTA Weightloss® diet restrictive?


To effectively lose visceral fat, the junk food and drink that created the condition will need to be substituted. The SOTA dietary protocol enables the client who follows their SOTA eating protocol precisely to have minimal to NO hunger, and to feel satisfied and satiated, while enjoying great energy.

Visceral fat is a condition born and bred of the wrong food and drink per an individual’s particular metabolic dietary tolerances. SOTA nutritionists make this process of dietary substitution very easy, replacing old weight gain eating habits with healthier more satiating choices.

SOTA WeightLoss® is a faster weekly fat loss approach to slimming down. Your nutritionist will be able to estimate your weekly numbers based upon your age, gender, medications, and habits.

SOTA WeightLoss® Offers
2 Dietary Alternatives
 


1. SOTA Snack Product Dietary Protocol:

This includes three to four daily snack products provided by SOTA at no extra cost. These snacks are designed for ease and convenience to establish balanced blood sugar levels while controlling appetite throughout the day.

Moderate protein-rich snacks also reduce the incidence of cheating which is inherent in a regular food diet. With this protocol, clients learn food prep for one meal a day — a healthy SOTA-approved dinner.

As clients progress with their slimming down, they will gradually transition into regular food meals.

 

2. SOTA Regular Food Dietary Protocol:

A regular or whole food SOTA dietary plan is designed for frequent healthy meals/snacks during the day to keep the blood sugar balanced and the appetite under control. Food prep and at home cooking is important.

 

SOTA Weekly/Monthly Maintenance Accountability

After achieving ideal/healthy weight by releasing the belly fat, clients will become eligible for SOTA Weekly/Monthly Maintenance Accountability at no extra charge, from their state of ideal/healthy weight. Maintenance helps to ensure clients learn to cultivate the habits and behaviors necessary for weight loss for life mastery.

These are some of the most commonly reported difficulties and dislikes our clients have experienced in previous diet programs:

  • Hunger, feeling starved during the diet process
  • Counting calories
  • Reaching a weight loss stall or plateau and getting stuck
  • The experience of low energy & weakness
  • Lack of discipline, guidance, motivation, laziness, cheating
  • Too slow of a weekly weight loss experience; boring
  • Lost some weight but gained it all back again
  • Lost all my weight, was starved afterward, and gained it all back
  • Having to meal prep and cook when they don’t have the time or energy, busy lifestyle
  • Business traveling prevented my successful weight loss

SOTA WeightLoss® has remedies and solutions for all the difficulties and dislikes clients have experienced with failed diets in their past.

Excited SOTA WeightLoss® clients most often feel great during their course of care, especially after their first week.

Two major considerations why clients can feel much better after their first week is they are no longer poisoning themselves with too much of the wrong foods and drinks per their particular metabolism. Plus their blood sugar has been SOTA-regulated for one full week.

As clients drop fat weight, they will need to keep in contact with their doctor to reduce medication dosages. Clients starting SOTA with concerning health conditions will want their doctor to work closely with their SOTA WeightLoss® nutritionist.

Exercise is important, we encourage a minimum of 30 minutes brisk walk every day, 7 days per week.

All clients are advised to consult with their doctor to assure they are healthy enough for exercise.

Many new clients are not fit enough for exercise, with feet, knee, hip, back, obesity, and heart issues. Nutritionists will encourage a safe attempt to do more movement and activity everyday per client tolerance and their doctor’s advice.

After 6-8 weeks and 20-25+ fat pounds down, clients who have been lifestyle sedentary, will begin to feel better physically, able and willing to do much more.

SOTA says:
“It is always best to babystep your way into exercise to let your body dictate when it is ready for additional efforts.”

Very important: After an initial 20-25 lbs down, call your doctor’s office to discuss with the nurse or doctor, at what weight loss intervals you should be decreasing your medication dosages.

The average SOTA client presents for care with 80 lbs visceral fat for men, and 60 lbs visceral fat for women. Their doctor has diagnosed 3-6 overweight/obesity related health conditions for which they are taking 3-6 medications. Thankfully, as this toxic fat mass is released, medication dosages will need to be reduced. If high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes is the result of visceral fat accumulation, your family doctor will be very happy to see these conditions reversed. You want your doctor to be your partner in your health recovery with SOTA WeightLoss®.

Exercise

 

A 30 minute brisk walk daily is advised for our SOTA clients. With excess weight comes foot, ankle, calf, knee, hip and back problems that can prevent exercise, so we simply encourage our challenged clients to become a little more active every day as best they can. Exercise should be FUN, and as our clients let go of their extra weight, they often find their joint and muscle conditions improve, overall energy level skyrockets and they become naturally more active. More fit clients may engage in cardio exercise, incorporating strength resistance exercises as they become more fit, active, and energetic.

* Before any exercise program first consult with your medical physician.

New and improved habits, attitudes and behaviors can replace old habits, when you make that decision to change your mind. SOTA was designed for your success with safe, fast and efficient fat-weight loss. Safe, fast and exciting weight loss is rewarding, encouraging, uplifting and empowering as you then reflect upon a younger and more energetic new you.

Deep Seated belly fat to signal Alzheimer’s disease risk 15 years before symptoms show up, study finds

Published November 21, 2023

Visceral fat is linked to brain changes that indicate early signs of dementia: ‘Beyond body mass index’


Even if you can’t see it, fat buried deep within the belly can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. That’s according to research released by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) on Monday.

Visceral fat, which is deposited deep in and around the vital internal organs in the belly, has been linked to brain changes that could point to future dementia in people as young as 50, up to 15 years before symptoms appear, as noted in a press release from RSNA.

The findings, published in the journal Aging and Disease, will be presented at the RSNA’s annual meeting next week.

Researchers analyzed the brain MRIs and PET scans of 54 “cognitively healthy” participants between the ages of 40 and 60, focusing on any inflammation and “plaques and tangles” that are typically seen in Alzheimer’s patients.

Before this research, no prior study has linked a specific type of fat to the actual Alzheimer’s disease protein in cognitively normal people


Men were more likely to show this correlation than women. Deep-seated “inflammation producing” visceral fat is linked to increased amyloid plaques, an abnormal protein that causes Alzheimer’s, and increased brain atrophy on PET and MRI brain scans, Raji noted.

Visceral fat may also lead to “inflammation” in the brain, one of the main mechanisms that contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, according to the researchers.

“We found the visceral fat-Alzheimer biomarker connection in people at midlife — 40s and 50s — on average 15 years before the earliest symptoms of Alzheimer’s typically appear,” Raji said.

Inflammation (inflammatory proteins) not only leads to heart disease, but there is increasing evidence that this inflammation also leads to neurodegenerative disease and poor brain cell function, and can accelerate Alzheimer’s, Siegel added. “This study reinforces that association.”

The researchers found that those with more visceral fat also had higher levels of amyloid in the precuneus cortex, which is the region of the brain that usually shows the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease. They also had greater inflammation in the brain.

Visceral Fat-metabolically (Active Fat)

Published October 29, 2023

Visceral fat is deep-seated belly fat stored inside the abdominal cavity, located in and around the important internal organs such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidney, and intestines.

Visceral fat is referred to as an alien organ of ‘active fat’ because research has shown that this type of deep-stored abdominal fat plays a serious and potentially dangerous role in affecting the health of our body, brain, hormone function, and much more.

Visceral fat is a metabolically active organ because over time it develops a nerve and blood supply, secreting toxic inflammatory chemicals and hormones into the body brain complex. Visceral fat is the primary causative factor in all serious obesity related health conditions, of which there are many! Storing high amounts of visceral fat in the belly is associated with increased risks of a number of health problems including Type 2 Diabetes, heart attack, heart disease, stroke, fatty liver, fatty heart, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, precursor Alzheimer’s disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, to name a few.

What types of fat do we store?

It is important to define the difference between visceral fat and subcutaneous body fat. Subcutaneous body fat is the fat that we store just under our skin. The fat we may be able to feel on our arms and legs is subcutaneous (under the skin) fat. A bulging belly can be the result of both types of fat. The fat we can feel just under the skin is subcutaneous fat, but the fat that protrudes from the belly is the toxic fat deposited deep inside our abdomen where our internal organs reside. This intra-abdominal fat is called visceral fat, abdominal fat, or belly fat.

Visceral fat and insulin resistance

Carrying a large amount of visceral fat in the belly is known to be associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Researchers have found that visceral fat secretes a protein called (RBP4) which has been shown to increase the body cells’ resistance to insulin. Amazingly, visceral fat stored in the abdomen becomes a “toxic alien organ,” a metabolically active organ, and it plays a negative active role in how our body & mind function. Visceral fat secretes chemicals and hormones that are toxic to the body. Visceral fat makes proteins called cytokines which trigger inflammation, a risk factor for heart disease, Alzheimers, and many other serious health conditions.

How can I tell if I have too much visceral fat?

The most certain way to tell if you are storing excess visceral fat is to undergo an MRI scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan). Research has shown that the protruding size of a belly is a relatively reliable indicator of the health risks linked to toxic visceral fat deposited in and around vital internal organs.

Why does the body store fat around the abdominal internal organs?

Scientists are looking for answers as to why visceral fat is stored by the body. To date, it is known that stress, a high-carb diet, alcohol, and a lack of exercise have a significant effect on where fat is stored in our body. Researchers have found that the stress hormone, cortisol, in conjunction with a bad diet and infrequent exercise significantly increases the storage of visceral fat and its resultant negative health complications.

How can I prevent fat from being stored around my internal organs?

Harvard University states that diet and exercise are most effective at reducing visceral fat accumulation in the belly. The following recommendations have been recognized as helping reduce unhealthy levels of visceral fat.

  • Regular exercise
  • Eat a healthy, lower carb/sugar diet
  • Ensure you regularly get a good night’s sleep
  • Reduce your levels of stress
  • Limit/eliminate alcohol intake
  • Quit smoking

It should come as no surprise that these are the same lifestyle recommendations for reducing the risk and reversing the damaging effects of Type 2 Diabetes.

Should I consider liposuction?

Liposuction only removes subcutaneous (under the skin) fat, and therefore would not be undertaken as a procedure for reducing abdominal fat, fat deposited deep in the belly, and visceral fat cannot be lipo sucked.
