Obesity continues to be a growing concern with statistics showing that greater than 1/3 of the North American population is obese. Unfortunately, that number is rising. Excessive weight creates health problems often leading to a reduced quality of life. Consider some of the obesity related diseases like heart disease, hypertension, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, arthritis, gallbladder disease, and mental health issues to name a few. These are conditions that in many instances can be prevented and in some cases treated by simply normalizing body weight. We know that normal weight is key if you truly desire good health.
What causes obesity?
It’s a disorder that reveals an abnormal function of some part of the body. Obesity can have roots in our metabolism, hormones, genetics or for some be tied to emotions. The first step is to medically rule out any disorder that causes you to have abnormal weight gain especially if it’s recent and not readily explainable by changes in diet or exercise. Ideally if your metabolism is functioning properly whether you overeat on occasion or perhaps not exercise for a period of time your weight should not change to any significant degree. I consider anything other than this a disorder that needs to be looked into, treated and corrected. When trying to understand obesity we also need to understand the types of fats that our bodies require and those which are in fact detrimental to our health. In the human body there are three kinds of fats.
- The first is structural. It falls the gaps between our organs, protects them and keeps our skin smooth and taut.
- The second fat serves as a normal reserve of fuel that our body can draw on at times of nutritional insufficiency.
- The third type of fat is entirely abnormal. This fat is often carried around the waist where it is locked away in fixed deposits not readily available to be used as fuel. Caloric restriction is not enough to adequately access and reduce this fat. Weight reduction programs need to address this type of unhealthy fat storage.
Over the years there have been many weight loss diets and programs that have come and gone. Some have helped people, some not. In treating obesity over the years I have found one program that consistently delivers significant and sustained weight loss even after the program ends. This program is medically monitored and involves targeting the unhealthy fat stores and resetting the part of the brain that controls appetite and how the body deals and distributes fat. This is achieved by combining a calorie-restricted diet with a daily injection of a very small amount of natural hormone that triggers the body to burn the unhealthy fat.
Weight Loss Results
The results are an average weight loss of one pound per day. It is safe, effective and has been around for over 40 years. I offer 23 and 40-day programs along with instructions and a plan to maintain the desired weight after the 23 or 40 day cycles are complete. This program can also be repeated as necessary. This program is unique and effective because it healthily reshapes the body, reduces the amount of dangerous and unhealthy fat stores, and resets the brain so that weight is not easily rebounded after the program stops. All of that contributes to a positive path forward to reducing your risk for serious disease in the future. That’s exciting.
Results of any weight loss program vary and are dependent on many individual factors.
