Weight and Obesity—Where’s It All Going?
With two-thirds of Americans either overweight or obese, weight has become a national crisis of epidemic proportions. And it’s not only about the way we look and feel, it’s the serious health risks we take every day hauling around extra weight that stresses our heart, arteries, liver, pancreas and joints. Even some cancers can be linked to excess weight and obesity.
Toll On Self-Esteem—It’s Not Just Fat
While it’s true that how we feel about ourselves on the inside reflects how we present ourselves to the world, there’s a little more to it than just that. One study published in the International Journal of Obesity demonstrated the strong association between excess weight and low self-esteem beginning as early as age five.. And consider this, weight stigma and discrimination has risen 66% in the past 10 years, becoming a socially acceptable form of bias affecting every area of our lives including the workplace. How we feel on the inside often reflects how we perceive ourselves on the outside. Simply put, when we look better, we feel better.
Sustainable Weight Loss—Weight Loss Plan For Life
Maintaining weight loss over a long period only works if the underlying behavior patterns that drive eating and exercise are addressed at the onset. No matter how much weight we lose, if we don’t make both the external and internal changes necessary to sustain healthy life choices, we’re going to repeat the same struggle again and again. We believe, with the right tools, weight can be controlled for a lifetime. With sustained weight loss you’ll find yourself sleeping better, enjoying sex more, and experiencing new energy you thought you’d never have again. Many of the medical conditions associated with weight gain will also begin to disappear. You’ll not only look better, you’ll feel better too.
Through patented fat burners designed to help convert fat to energy, you’ll experience a boost in metabolism without an increase in appetite.
When combined with regular exercise and a healthy eating plan, thermogenic compounds work to accelerate weight loss for many individuals.
Getting the proper nutrients to fuel the body efficiently is critical for weight loss and weight management. Eating the right foods to keep you full and satisfied throughout the day without intense blood sugar spikes and crashes is key. Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and proteins, along with healthy carbohydrates and fats help stabilize glucose for consistent energy. Frequent small meals, eaten 5-6 times daily are recommended for many weight loss plans.
High quality nutritional supplements help optimize weight loss, increase metabolic function, boost energy and aid the fat-burning process.
Weight Loss Management Help
Weight management is a critical part of maintaining health and wellness no matter what age and stage you are in life. The majority of adults try five or more diet or weight loss plans before finally giving up. There are a number of reasons individuals struggle to lose and maintain weight throughout their lifetime however. These include hormonal issues, medications, difficulty with movement and exercise, and eating disorders. Some individuals may suffer with food allergies or a condition known as, insulin resistance. Many more simply lack the time and energy necessary to eat properly and exercise.
It’s important to get the kind of support needed to address each individual obstacle to weight loss. A good weight loss and management program consists of multiple approaches.
Your individual weight loss plan may include some or all of the following:
Appetite Suppressant—To help maintain the control you need to choose healthy portion sizes, to rev up metabolism and to send the body signals you are full and satisfied.
Lipotropics/Vitamins – Amino acids help burn fat while vitamins are necessary to boost energy during weight loss and maintenance periods. These include a number of supplements such as:
B12 Injectable (Cyanocobalamin or Methylcobalamin form)
Methionine, Inositol and Choline (MIC) injectable
MIC Combo, which may include the following:
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin or Methylcobalamin)
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)–Hormones used to promote fat loss are administered through Rapid Dissolve Sublingual Tablets (RDT) or lyophillzed (freeze-dried) powder for injection.
Cellulite Gels and Creams – These include specialty formulas to help tighten skin and aid in exfoliation.
Sleep Aids –Sleep plays an important role in weight management. A special blend of magnesium, theanine and melatonin helps to support natural restful sleep.
Sermorelin –This peptide analogue of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) works to stimulate the pituitary gland to release hormones, which increase energy levels and help the body burn fat. This is available as a dissolvable lozenge, or lyophilized injectable
Hormone Support—Bioidentical hormones that mimic the body’s natural production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are created through specialty compounding pharmacies. Many natural botanicals and extracts can support healthy endocrine function as well. Treatment for hormonal imbalances may also include a therapy regimen with Sermorelin,which helps increase lean body mass, improves energy, increases strength and endurance and aids in fat reduction.
Thyroid and Adrenal Support—Many individuals underestimate the important role thyroid and adrenal hormones play in weight control. A sluggish thyroid or fatigued adrenal glands impact energy levels and weight. Treatment may include one or more of the following medications or supplements:
T3 or T3/T4 (slow release) plain
T3 slow release
As we gain weight, skin stretches to accommodate extra fat stored in the abdomen, arms, and legs. When we lose the weight excess skin can sag. We offer many natural dermatological solutions to help enhance skin’s elasticity, moisture and firmness.
Simple Weight Loss Strategies
Get your sleep—Studies demonstrate that obesity and lack of sleep are directly associated. Eight to eight and a half hours of sleep per night is optimal. Anything less interferes with normal neuroendocrine function that controls hunger and appetite.
Stay within your budget—Know how many calories you need to lose weight. Aim for an eating plan that allows at least 1400 calories per day. Adjust your calorie intake as needed to maintain slow, steady weight loss.
Move more—Just 15 minutes per day of moderate exercise reduces your risk for heart attack, stroke, and death in general. According to at least one medical study published in the American Journal of Medicine, individuals who engage in at least some type of exercise daily, even if it’s just gardening, live an average of three years longer than their sedentary counterparts.
