Tampa Bay Weight Loss Clinic Changes Lives And Waistlines

C. L., a 63 year old former patient sought treatment at our weight loss clinic in Tampa, Florida. He was 226 pounds and had a body fat of 40% (a healthy male is 25%). He was a former smoker and lived a sedentary lifestyle. During his initial evaluation he presented with an abnormal ekg. SBD recommended that he follow up with a cardiologist as soon as possible. C. L. was diagnosed with five blocked coronary arteries and required 5 vessel bypass surgery. He continued on the nutritional program and was able to lose weight. C.L. had lost 20 lbs before his cardiac surgery. He called Success By Design from his hospital bed to thank us for saving his life! A.R., a type II diabetic for the past twelve years started our weight loss program and lost 16lbs in just one month. With that 16 lb weight loss, she was able to discontinue her diabetes medications, one of them being insulin. She has had a total weight loss of over 63lbs overall and is living a life without diabetes.

Weight Loss Tips as easy as 1-2-3:

1) Simply cutting out refined sugars /carbohydrates (juice, sodas, candy, cakes, pies, and alcohol) will give an amazing result.

2) The next step is to cut out anything made with white flour (pastries, bread, and pasta). Sugar and white flour are EVIL! Sugar and refined starches cause a spike in blood glucose. This results in a spike in the hormone insulin. When your body produces too much insulin in can result in excess calories and sugar to be stored as fat. This explains why many patients that eat a diet high in refined carbohydrates are generally obese and are on their way to diabetes or heart disease.

3) The next step in getting healthy and losing weight is to start moving more (look for the furthest parking spot, go to the farthest bathroom, take the stairs). Remember, each step counts. 10,000 steps daily counts as good physical activity. Ultimately, many people are under the assumption that to lose weight one should drastically cut calories. Not true. Women should not eat less than 1,200 calories daily and men should not eat less than 1,800 calories daily. These calories should be high in protein, fiber and phytonutrients (i.e. fruit and vegetables). When the body perceives a lack of calories, especially if it less than what is needed to survive at rest, it will decrease it’s metabolism in order to survive on the calories that it is actually getting. These calories should be eaten in three meals and two snacks. Breakfast is a must. It is important to break the fast from sleeping all night and to kick start your metabolism each day.
