2. The eating plan is different.
• Most diets focus on NOT eating fat, not eating carbs, or just plain not eating much of anything! With most diets, success is based primarily on will power.
• The FirstLine Therapy® program eating plan teaches patients they need to eat and to eat frequently.  But the focus is on eating the right kind of foods: the right kind of fat and right kind of carbohydrates.  The program is designed to maintain stable blood sugar and energy levels.  Patients report less hunger, more energy, and higher compliance with the eating plan than with commonly recommended low fat diets.
• The FirstLine Therapy® program uses a low-glycemic diet that is consistent with current research.   Research has shown that low-glycemic diets are more effective than low fat diets in treating obesity, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, heart disease and type 2  diabetes.

3. The FirstLine Therapy® program incorporates medical foods and nutraceuticals.
• Medical foods are designed to address the unique nutritional needs of patients with specific health problems.
• Appropriate use of nutritional formulas can help improve patient compliance, enhance program effectiveness, and shorten the time it takes to achieve healthy goals.
