ASK THE DOCTORS LipoMelt Lipomelt is a safe, pain free alternative to liposuction. The LipoMelt treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring. Clients will see a reduction of inches after their very first session; best results are achieved with multiple sessions over a few weeks time. How does LipoMelt work? You lay down and two distinct frequencies of unique light emitted from LED’s cause the fat to emulcify (melt) in the cell membranes, temporarily altering the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the melted fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. What happens to the fat? After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enter the blood stream via the Lymphatic system. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be quickly eliminated by the body. What areas of the body can be treated? The LipoMelt treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms...even the neck.. Does LipoMelt help with cellulite and loose skin? Clients undergoing LipoMelt have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture. Do I have to follow a diet? No diet changes are required, but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake even just a little and increase your water consumption to 6- 8 glasses a day. Meanwhile, reducing alcohol consumption will reduce calories and help the liver. One Less Bite! The key to weightloss is making a change in your diet that is maintainable. A nutritionalist once told me if you eat 2,000 calories of food a day and burn off 2,000 calories of food a day, at the end of the month, or at the end of the year you won’t gain or lose any weight, but if you add the extra calories of one bowl of soup per week to that balance ... at the end of one year you will gain 5 lbs! Soooooo if you only remove the calories of one bowl of soup per week to your intake you lose 5 lbs in a year.... Moral of that story is make small changes that are maintainable! Like not eating another bite once you are full, you can eat the rest later as a snack, (eating often, small portions is better for our metabloism) I love my burgers and still eat them but usually take almost half of it home. (Who needs a 8 or 10 oz. burger, we used to think a quarter pounder was a big burger and that is only 4 ounces!!! and YES ... on a bun... it’s not a burger if it’s not on a bun!) Oh... I also still eat fries... it’s true! but only eat a hand full, I usually ask for half as much as they normally send out and don’t end up eating all of those either! (and no, I won’t take them home... I don’t enjoy cold or reheated mushy fries) Do I have to exercise? Each of your sessions includes 20 minutes on our “shaker” machine to stimulate circulation and help remove the fat that has been released. The best part of this system is seeing results! Fitting int a smaller size motivates you to have one less bite, or walk more, improving results!

Are they doomed to obesity and ill health? Dear Reader: We wish we could reassure you and say it'll all be OK, but studies have long been clear on the matter. What your kids eat now will shape their health for years and maybe decades to come. Poor eating habits have caused a spike in childhood obesity in the last few decades. Today, more than 17 percent of kids ages 2 to 17 qualify as obese. That's double what it was 20 years ago. Being overweight has put young people at increased risk of all kinds of health problems and led to a sharp increase in the diagnosis of conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated blood cholesterol, fatty liver, and even asthma and sleep disorders. But before you confront your kids with a list of "don'ts," which teens are naturally primed to resist, be aware that the newest study on youth nutrition has some great news. It arms you with the information you need to right the nutritional course while encouraging your teens in a positive way. Here's the gist: Young people who ate fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains, and who steered clear of sugar, red meat and processed foods, gained significantly less weight as they entered young adulthood. The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Minnesota, followed the eating habits of 2,500 adolescents from the time they were 15 until they turned 25. Researchers found that by eating well at age 15, young people developed the habit of good nutrition, and it carried on into their 20s and beyond. The takeaway? You can guide your children to a more healthful adulthood by helping them establish good eating habits while they are in their teens. Some strategies: -- Stock the fridge with plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole-grain products. -- Clear out the processed foods and the fatty, salty snacks. -- Serve lean meats, poultry, fish, beans and legumes for protein. -- Make sure that serving portions are a reasonable size. -- Make the home a no-soda zone. This includes diet drinks. -- Steer clear of sugar and sweets. The goal is moderation, and your best chance at success is to get creative. Instead of being forbidden, let the fried foods your kids love become special-event treats. That way, they'll be less likely to feel deprived and sneak-eat. Cooking together -- scouting recipes, shopping, preparing the food and eating as a family -- can go a long way to cementing the new eating behavior. Exercise makes a big difference, not just to teens but for adults as well. There's no better way than to lead by example. Start taking family hikes or bike rides. Pick out a local race to train for and set an in-family competition with personal goals and rewards. If you market these changes as something that's fun for the kids and for yourself, you're far more likely to create healthy habits that will last for life. Lose Weight While You REST...??? LipoMelt!
