Why do I want you to lose 20lbs in 6 weeks?

How will losing 20lbs in 6 weeks with our Weight Loss Program change your life in a healthy way? When I ask the question above the responses look like this: It’s too good to be true Losing weight fast means you will gain it back That cannot be healthy There is a catch While losing weight is a challenge, it’s a challenge everyone can accomplish, especially if there is a underlying purpose. When you pay attention to the weight loss industry you can clearly see that a lot of what is offered doesn't make sense. We want to deviate from that by offering a weight loss program that is fast, real, affordable and life changing. Let's me explain. When thinking about weight-loss, one often has an “ideal” body weight in mind or an ultimate weight-loss goal. It’s very common for people to think that unless they lose dozens of pounds, they will not be any healthier. This is a misconception. Studies have shown that health benefits resulting from weight-loss are evident with a weight reduction as low as 5-10 percent of body weight. This means that an individual that weighs 200 pounds will benefit greatly from losing 10 to 20 pounds. There’s scientific evidence that many obesity-related conditions improve with a 5-10 percent of body weight weight loss. Let’s look at these related conditions and see how modest weight-loss may greatly improve them and your overall quality of health and life: Cholesterol A 5-10 percent weight-loss can result in a five point increase in HDL(good) cholesterol. There are other fat-like particles in the blood that are harmful in elevated amounts. They are called triglycerides. People with high triglycerides are at higher risk for heart attacks and strokes among other problems. Losing 5-10 percent of body weight was shown to decrease triglycerides by an average of 40 mg/dl, which is a significant drop. This level can further improve with exercise, a diet low in concentrated sugars, grain based carbohydrates and unhealthy fats, as well as a reduction of any excessive alcohol intake. Hypertension Excess body weight accounts for about 25-30 percent of cases of hypertension. As body weight increases, it causes hemodynamic abnormalities and other changes that result in elevated blood pressure. By losing 5-10 percent of one’s body weight, blood pressure, both systolic and diastolic, will decrease by 5 mmHg on average. In order to maintain this improvement, A RESPONSIBLE DIET must continue after weight loss. Diabetes One of the laboratory markers used to screen for diabetes and to monitor its treatment is called Hemoglobin A1C. The normal level should be below 6.5. Research has shown that a 5-10 percent body weight loss can decrease this marker by half a point on average. Insulin Resistance Another condition that is seen with weight gain is a phenomenon called insulin resistance. In this disorder, the pancreas produces larger than normal amounts of a hormone called insulin. Insulin is responsible for keeping blood sugar levels normal. When someone has insulin resistance, the resulting high levels of insulin in the blood cause an increase in fat tissue especially in the waist area, abnormal cholesterol, and sometimes a change in certain hormone levels in women that causes male pattern hair growth and infertility. Modest weight-loss was found to significantly decrease insulin levels and thus to help with reversing these conditions. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder commonly diagnosed in patients affected by excess weight that causes snoring or gasping for air during sleep. This causes fatigue and sleepiness during the day. It also is responsible for making certain diseases less responsive to treatment, like hypertension for example. It has been shown that a 5-10 percent body weight-loss may improve sleep apnea. Inflammation In studies looking at the effect of excess weight on cells of the human body, it was found that fat cells and especially abdominal fat cells produce a large number of substances that result in inflammation in blood vessels. This inflammation then can result in plaques and clots that lead to strokes and heart attacks. When weight-loss achieves a level of 10 percent, the levels of inflammatory substances circulating in the blood drop significantly and therefore the risk of vascular damage is reduced as well. Conclusion All these improvements caused by weight-loss as low as 5-10 percent of body weight ultimately lead to very significant benefits including a lesser chance of having a heart attack or stroke.
