Weight loss. Obesity. Overweight. Flabby. All are terms we don't care to think about nor have associated with us. Yet obesity is an epeidemic in this country and it's spiraling out of control. Nearly 2/3 of Americans are considered obese! In the next 10 years the number is expected to go to over 90%!
It's true. Eating habits have turned towards unhealthy choices and more of it. Serving sizes have doubled in the past 20 years so now we have people (and children!) eating more unhealthy foods than ever before.
There are many ways to combat this problem. We can retrain an individual or family to make better food choices and re-learn what is healthy for their family. This takes time and a willingness to change. Ultimately, most will have to go through this step as you cannot simply 'diet' forever and hope for a healthy change.
When a patient comes to me with questions on weight loss, I must take into consideration their lifestyle and what their health goals are. It's not just about the weight. At that point, I can make a custom recommendation based on their needs, goals, and dedication level.
A new system (to our office) that we have incorporated for rapid, safe weight loss is the Take Shape For Life system that utilizes Medi-fast foods. This system has been PROVEN to get a patient into a quicker metabolism and into fat burning mode SAFELY, QUICKLY, and effectively. In fact, I started the program 1.5 weeks ago to prove it's abilities to my patients. I am down a total of 10.5 lbs and feel great. A few of our patients in/around the Smithtown area have already started the program and are noticing positive results!
This system has a variety of foods that are used initially 5 times per day to speed up your metabolism. You supply the 6th meal of the day which is a 'lean and green' meal. This 5+1 system is proven and works amazingly. You can learn more about TSFL at our special website dedicated to the program. www.LoseWeightLI.TSFL.com
Take Shape For Life is not the only way to lose weight, however, it serves a perfect role for those who want to lose weight quicker and then initiate physical activity. A patient who is 100lbs overweight is too heavy to start many physical activities. With TSFL we can help this person lose weight quickly and THEN start them on a more intense physical workout series.
