Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Brand NUE programs address “broken metabolisms”. Through our proprietary 3-Step Metabolic Reset ™ and customized programs, we correct hormonal imbalances and metabolic deficiencies. Our programs create environments where clients thrive and no longer consider “diet culture” a viable option.  Beyond this, we teach life skills, so that each client is set-up for success well into the future.

Initially it’s FREE! We offer a FREE consultation because we won’t know the cost of your program until you come in and meet with us. We need to know more information about you – what has/not worked, your specific needs, your body fat percentage, etc. Once we have these answers, we can set you up with a program that will help you achieve your goals in the desired timeframe. On average, we are much less expensive than traditional medical weight loss (prescriptions/surgeries/etc.). We accept FSA, HSA, Care Credit and offer payment plans.

All our supplements are all natural and based on science. We don’t use medications like Adipex or phentermine and we don’t use hormones like the HCG diet. Our goal is for you to be able to maintain the weight loss that you achieve with us. Research has shown that weight maintenance is difficult if you become reliant on something, like medications, to lose weight. We also use natural products so that they don’t interfere with any medications or medical conditions that you may have.

No. Our programs allow you to successfully complete the program from the comfort of your home. We are available to assist you anytime – to help and guide you through the program designed specifically for you. Once you are a client, we also offer virtual meetings.

No, you don’t need to exercise regularly to lose weight on our program. Exercise is not the most effective way to burn body fat.

Yes, absolutely! All our programs come with guides for dining out, specific menu recommendations at restaurants, responsible alcohol consumption parameters, etc. We have found that weight loss and long-term weight management is not possible if you feel deprived or not able to socialize.

Yes! Our programs come with hundreds of delicious (and easy!) recipes, dining out guides, interactive cooking videos, grocery lists and meal planning guides. Everything to ensure success is accounted for and is conveniently organized in our proprietary app.

Of course! We love customizing recipes and guides to meet all dietary preferences and needs.

No, age is not a factor. Our youngest clients are 18 years old; our eldest 93.

Absolutely not! Our programs do not include counting calories or calculating points.

Hi, it’s Dr. Matthew Nuesse founder of Brand NUE Weight Loss. For over 15 years I have been helping people naturally lose weight and transform their lives. During this time there have been a number of so called “miracle” drugs that have come to market. There has been Adipex/phentramine, Belviq and now Wegovy/Ozempic/Mounjaro, just to name a few. Each time they gain a ton of hype and then fizzle out when they turn out to not be the miracle cure for obesity that the marketing would have you believe. I have always resisted implementing these with our clients because one of our main tenants is to have our clients be able to lose body fat on a regular basis without becoming reliant on taking a substance for life.

Studies have shown that once people come off of these medications they almost always gain their weight back. The honest truth is that if I thought that implementing these drugs would be the right thing to do for my clients I could hire practitioners tomorrow to hand out these prescriptions. Our offices would certainly make more money and the drug companies would make more money (these drugs are not cheap!). I can’t, in good conscience, do this however.

These most recent drugs (Wegovy, Ozempic and Mounjaro) have me particularly concerned not only because of the slow (in my opinion) results (Studies show that people on Wegovy can lose 35 pound but this can take 68 weeks!) and the need to use them for life but also because of the reported side effects. Recently lawsuits have been filed against the makers of these drugs citing “stomach paralysis”. This is due to the fact that these drugs cause a slowdown in stomach emptying. In some cases this has reportedly led to the devastating condition gastroparesis which may cause a blockage.

The bottom line is that we are in the life transformation business. Our purpose is to help as many people as possible lead happy and healthy lives where they feel confident about themselves and aren’t at risk for preventable disease. We want to help people who are fed up with being overweight and sick of traditional “diets” and weight yo-yoing. The only way to do this, in my opinion, is to develop a comprehensive plan that the client fells completely comfortable with and can be adapted to be used for life. These drugs are simply incongruent with this goal. For more information about the science on these drugs please see the links below;
