ApoE Gene diet: lose weight and reduce high cholesterol

Apolipoprotein E, or ApoE, is a gene that determines how your body metabolizes cholesterol and other foods.
The ApoE gene puts you at risk for Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, Alzheimer’s, Strokes, Diabetes, Obesity, and more. 

With thorough testing, every patient’s ApoE genetic profile tells our staff the best way to approach your weight loss goals. This plan is customized to suit your genetic blueprint.

The ApoE Gene Diet is not a diet in the classic use of the word. Instead, the ApoE Gene Diet is an individualized nutritional plan based on your gene type. Because each ApoE genotype processes foods differently, there is a unique optimal balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in the ideal diet for each person’s journey to weight loss.  

In addition, the ApoE Gene Diet incorporates the whole person (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) in creating a gene-supportive environment that promotes a healthy life free of chronic illness. 

The optimal plan for your ApoE Gene Diet provides guidance for:

  • Fat content with the correct types of fats
  • Carbohydrate content with the suitable kinds of carbohydrates
  • Protein content with the best types of proteins
  • Caloric content for your needs
  • Amount and variety of exercise appropriate for you
  • Balance of stress and relaxation in your life
  • Your mental and emotional environment
  • Type of vibes and or energy you mesh with (the spiritual component)

Do you have a history of high cholesterol and weight gain? Then, get tested for the ApoE gene and start seeing results!

Intermittent Fasting Program

Humans are programmed through evolutionary history to be hunters and gathers that can go long periods without eating. Intermittent fasting burns through the calories from when you last ate and then begins to burn your fat stores.

Farming and electricity facilitate eating calories at all hours of the day. The extra calories and a more sedentary lifestyle increase the risk of being overweight, having type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and many other illnesses.

With Intermittent Fasting, you stop eating earlier in the day and prolong eating in the morning, so you are without food for between 16 to 18 hours.

To give you an idea of how Intermittent fasting works the first week, you might have your last meal before 7pm. Then, when you wake up, you can have non-caloric beverages until 11am, when you have your first meal. You will eat sensibly with some protein to end the fasting window, and you can choose whether it is a breakfast or lunch-type meal.

Serenity will guide you on the foods and recipes that suit you during your eating window. You must stop all food intake at the defined hour. We adjust the diet to your schedule.

Medically supervised Keto Diet program

The Keto Diet is a high-fat, low-carb weight loss program. Roughly speaking, when you go Keto, about 60% of your calories come from fat, 30% from protein, and 10% or less from carbs.

However, the toggle of calories from fat is variable. Your goals determine the ratio, so these percentages are entirely related to the total calorie intake you need for that purpose and optimal weight loss.

Serenity tailors the Keto Diet to improve body composition and health for long-term results – not just weight loss.

The ratio approach is used most effectively for a medically supervised Keto Diet.
Modified versions of the Keto Diet can be higher protein and carbs, easier to do, and more nutrient dense.

Keeping macronutrients at a range (both in composition and amount) where insulin and blood glucose are well-managed will signal your body to utilize more fat and make ketones in the pursuit of weight loss.

Here’s how that works:

  • Reducing carb intake reduces blood sugar levels.
  • Less blood sugar means your pancreas releases less insulin.
  • Low insulin in circulation introduces the release of more free fatty acids into circulation, which increases beta-oxidation and thus increases ketone production.

Simply put, a Ketogenic Diet allows your body to increase its reliance on fat (and the ketones produced from fat) for energy and to reduce its dependence on glucose. 

This is similar to the functioning of fasting – which is why the 

Keto Diet is sometimes called a “fasting-mimicking diet” to achieve weight loss.

A Keto Diet focused on nutrient density is similar to the Paleo Diet without healthy carbohydrates. You can consume fats, nuts, meat, leafy greens, small portions of berries, and dairy if tolerated while avoiding high-carb foods like grains and rice.  

In addition, low-carb diets trigger unique hormonal changes that significantly limit overeating for most people. 

Plus, ketones themselves have some unique therapeutic benefits.

The most important is insulin. 

Insulin is a signaling hormone responsible for several functions in the human body – among them, the retention by tissues of stored energy (fats and carbohydrates, predominantly) and indicating the need for energy storage.

Keto, because of the composition of the calories, keeps a fairly heavy boot on circulating insulin levels. 

Then there are the hunger hormones. 

A Keto Diet lowers ghrelin and neuropeptide Y—both appetite stimulators. So less hunger means less overeating and more possibility of enjoying weight loss.  


Semaglutide is a medication originally developed to improve and control blood sugar in adults suffering from type 2 diabetes commonly seen under the brand name Ozempic. The FDA recently approved the medication to be used for a mixture of other health related purposes, most commonly for weight loss and weight management.

As we mentioned above, the brand name for Semaglutide is Ozempic. We offer medially supervised Semaglutide treatment in the generic form which is part of a group of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists that helps to balance and control hormones such as insulin, helping to regulate your blood sugar. Semaglutide increases glucose-dependent insulin secretion while decreasing inappropriate glucagon secretion and gastric emptying. Because of blood sugar control, several factors help contribute to weight loss, one being appetite control. Because of the change in your appetite, you begin eating less which helps with weight loss, additionally, paired with the blood sugar regulation comes the reduction in cravings. Additionally, Semaglutide helps you feel more sustained for a longer period of time after meals, reducing snacking and overall caloric intake.

HCG injections for weight loss

In this quick weight loss program, people commonly experience a half-pound up to a pound of weight loss per day. This includes follow-ups with our advanced practice nurse practitioner or nurse for medical monitoring, medication, and dietary counseling.

hCG allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories per day and intake 500-800 calories while not experiencing extreme hunger, loss of energy, or a need for exercise.

Essentially your body will eat its own fat, keeping you from experiencing hunger. It targets the fat on the waist, hips, and thighs. Learn more about the hCG injections here.
