The Real Answer May Surprise You!
Have you ever met anyone who wanted to gain an excessive, unhealthy amount of weight? Of course not! In fact, excessive weight gain is one of the most unwanted of medical problems.
I love seeing people take charge of their health and weight destiny… successfully! (In one of our studies, 73 patients lost an average of 47.1 lbs in just 9 months! I love that!!!) But weight loss is not “easy”. The fact is, significant weight loss and maintenance is one of the most difficult of human undertakings. You see, we have things like stress, dangerous foods, powerful cravings, and negative influences all around us.
Study after study has confirmed the power of medically designed meal replacements to deliver weight loss. By delivering generous amounts of high quality protein and plenty of variety, they can satisfy the cravings and appetite of almost any dieter. With the ability to provide great nutrition, limit calories AND satisfy cravings, they simplify and supercharge the efforts of dieters.
Unwanted weight gain is a real bother. Gaining just 15 lbs is enough to increase one’s risk of ugly things like cancer and heart disease. A few extra pounds can also impact our appearance, our self-confidence, our energy level, and even whether or not our clothes fit. Truly, no one wants to be overweight. It can be painful, frustrating, and downright depressing!
For weight loss success, one must first WANT to lose weight. Envisioning our future with the many rewards of weight loss can be all we need to give us that added motivation to get the job done.
For the first time in history, our world has more overweight people than underweight! Diseases of calorie excess, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and many cancers are skyrocketing. As a result, many of us will not live as long as our parents. Simply put, our food is killing us! And once the above diseases strike, regaining health may be impossible.
Unfortunately, typical diets are not the answer. Fewer than 5% of self-dieters maintain even 1 pound of weight loss for 3 years. Research is “screaming” at us that powerful tools are urgently needed to lose weight and keep it off.
One of those “powerful tools” is professional quality meal replacements. In fact, I am so convinced of their effectiveness that I recommend them routinely. Let me state it clearly:
If you are overweight, use professional quality meal replacements to experience their 6 powerful benefits during weight loss and maintenance.
The National Institute of Health states that professional meal replacements used with physician-supervised diets are “not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocery stores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day.” Quality matters, especially when your health is at stake!
“Shall I lose weight or not?” The answer to this question is often THE ANSWER that will determine one’s health and weight destiny. The logical answer often is a definite “YES, absolutely I will lose weight!” However, in reality, the answer for most Americans is “No, not right now.”
Let’s look at some of the reasons:
Finishing high school or college can be hard, building a house is hard, treating cancer is hard, planning for retirement can be hard, and even filling out a government form can be hard. Weight loss requires at least some effort, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it. Lots of difficult things are worth doing.
Americans are feeling tired and they are gaining “unwanted” weight at alarming rates. Maybe you are an exception. I hope so. But, if you are at least 30 years of age, you likely have gained weight “against your will”. Think back to age 21. What was your weight? Has it changed? If you are typical, it is up ½ to 1 pound (or more) for each year.
