It's NOT About the Bathing Suit
Posted April 26th, 2011
It’s warm weather time in Florida. We’re heading to the beach, lounging by the pool, going on vacation. Also about this time you start seeing ads with a familiar refrain: “It’s swimsuit season! Time to get in shape!” And that means for so many women anxiety, frustration, even fear.
As a result of this annual event, some of you may be thinking, “Ugh, I dread putting that suit on,” or “Oh no, I look terrible in my bathing suit…” To that you might be also saying, “I’m going on a diet TODAY!”
At The Renewal Point, we’re here to help you with your weight loss goals, but it means a lot more than getting you into your itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot…you get the point. For sure, a weight loss program should have you lose the inches from your belly and thighs while trimming the arms and legs but why not get more? Why not also revitalize and improve your overall health while you lose weight? Besides, those “quick-fix swimsuit diets” may give you fast results, but chances are you’ll be groaning again next spring unless you address the underlying issues. And that’s what we do here at The Renewal Point.
What we’ve found — having treated women (and men) at Renewal Point for many years — is that almost everyone who has a weight problem has hidden imbalances forcing the body to work against itself. And this makes it practically impossible to lose weight. Taking a comprehensive approach to weight loss at The Renewal Point, we use a “detect and correct” method in order to shed those unnecessary pounds.
Tests are performed to check for metabolic imbalances. Then, when detected, we make a plan for correction of these imbalances combining it with a medically-supervised weight loss program. When hormones such as insulin, thyroid, leptin and cortisol are balanced, weight loss is accomplished more easily and with a long-term effect. Without balancing these processes, it’s virtually impossible to sustain a healthy body and lose weight at the same time.
At The Renewal Point’s safe, medically-based physician’s office, we develop a plan for not only shedding the unnecessary pounds, but also a life-long health program. We look at your health — not just your waistline — in order to have you live a longer higher quality of life…And yes, that includes being slimmer, but also with more energy, better sexuality, improved brain power, more restful sleep and younger-looking skin.
Here’s the story of one of our recent patients. Marilyn, a 55-year old woman with two children and three grandchildren had put on 30 pounds over the last few years. She came to The Renewal Point interested in peeling off the 30 pounds while trying to get fit for the summer. Having tried other programs, she was tired of cardboard food, feeling hungry and irritable all the time, and gaining the weight back shortly after completing the program. She wasn’t sleeping well, her sex drive had gone “bye-bye” and her mood had changed for the worse. After testing, multiple metabolic problems were uncovered, which shed light on the reason it was so difficult for Marilyn to lose weight.
In our medically-guided program, she was not only able to lose the pounds she wanted in two short months, but lots of bonuses were included. Because of balancing her hormones, she now has her energy back, is sexually on target, and is sleeping peacefully through the night. Her health markers have improved as well, and her cholesterol, blood pressure and osteoporosis are all under control.
Remember: It’s not just about the bathing suit, it’s about looking good with great health all year-round! Why not come to one of our upcoming seminars and find out for yourself.
