For every 30 pounds a person is overweight, they have 50 miles of blood vessels to support that fat.
People 60 pounds overweight have miles of blood vessels. That's alot of pumping! Next, all people, including overweight people have two pumps for heir blood: When a person gains weight and becomes inactive, all of the pumping work is forced onto the heart.
All those extra miles of blood vessel tire out the heart and weaken it. Fat does not just 'sit there' it has one very rich blood supply! There is hope for people with even the worst conditions. That 'hope' requires certain exact interventions to fully evaluate and treat the whole person while reducing weight as rapidly and as safely as possible. This is one more study which shows even people in their 70's who take appropriate actions can improve the quality and legnth of their lives!
It's never to late to do the right thing! Getting to ideal body weight and staying active for minutes of non-stop activity on most days walking, swimming, biking was a main goal.
The science behind the recomendations: Next, there are only 2 pumps to move blood: Finally, smoking and alcohol consumption: The body prefers to pick-up from the lungs, molecules on toxic poisonous carbon monoxide gas before it will pick up a single molecule of oxygen. Alcohol molecules break down into sugar. If you sat up for hours each night eating anything sugary and did no activity, that 'sugar energy' will not be burned.
Where does unburned sugar energy go? It all turns into fat. The new guidelines talk also about limiting sodium consumption. For decades a 'certain group' of cardiac experts have condemned sodium consumption. The latest study puts those claims to rest and should eventually lead to a revised goal not to limit sodium. Do those smart things you know you need to do to get better health: You need to do this Program for yourself and for your family.
Many people experience pain as they get older. The 'avoidance' behavior begets additional 'avoidance' behaviors which cones down a persons world to exclude more and more forms of activity. Eventually, a person falls to the 'least' possible activity, and begins 'jumping to conclusions' as their major form of activity and exercise!
National statistics show the 'average' American sitting, eating, and watching television for 40 hours a week! It's time for Americans to get off the couch, turn off the television, and reengage in life. What have you done lately? Really- what activity have you done? What are your 10 most recent accomplishements in the past month? If you're a person, who because of pain has began to avoid activity, then you need to come in and get seen, get evaluated, and get treated.
There are many treatable conditions that can cause pain and fatigue. At Adobe we're expert at evaluating and treating these conditions.
We'll also help you to set life goals and get you reengaged in having a life worth living. Our Simeons Weight Loss Program is great at getting people reengaged in life and having way less weight pulling them down and causing foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain. One man who recently lost 60 pouinds, had been told by 2 orthopedic 'experts' he needed knee replacement surgery for both knees. After the 60 pound loss, he confirmed his knees felt 'great' and he's now been more active than he'd been in the last 15 years!
The most consistent comment we receive from patients: From an article in the British Medical Journal, November 3rd The numbers cited were unimpressive: Over a 12 week period of 'active protocol', our 'lowest' performers lose 40 pounds: Healthcare and weight loss management should be managed by scientists health care providers and not promoted on television for 'do-it-yourself' weight loss programs, nor done through a 'spa' or a beauty salon.
Hire us as your 'science team' and work with us to make your year to get 'hooked-up' with a medically managed weight loss program! Hypertension high blood pressure , Metabolic Syndrome Diabetes , and Hyperlipidemia high cholesterol. These three diseases are 'affectionately' described as the cardiometabolic or preventable premature death syndrome. To not die prematurely, the desicions are simple: As we've said before: When we demand more from ourselves and those we care about- we can achieve great goals.
People will rise to the level of expectations placed upon them. So, the question is: The 'bubba' double or triple sized drinks- they have double or triple the calories- to calories per 'cup'. A 'Big Mac' has about calories by comparison. That's the problem with Americans- many can not and will not do simple math to figure out why they have a problem. America is being destroyed by high fructose corn syrup and fat.
In the case of sodas: When we divide the 54, by 3, calories number of calories in a pound of fat , we have BUT the 'average' American under 50 is working on 3 cans of soda each day- or three times the calories , which is So, exactly how is it that we fail to understand why Americans are gaining so much fat?
Meta-analysis and Systematic Review: The 'typical' low activity person only burns 30 grams of carbohydrate at a meal-the rest of the carbs raises blood sugar, then raises triglyceride levels, then changes to cholesterol, then is deposited as fat on the body. Back in the day, when people walked everywhere, they could eat volumes of rice and beans and not gain weight and not develop diabetes.
These same people, back in the day, would also engage in heavy physical labor for 8 to 10 to 12 hours- burning massive amounts of fat and carbs. However, with people taking cars, buses and trains, and few people having heavy physical labor- the risk for diabetes has dramatically increased. That's one reason we say, "jumping to conclusions" has become the number one form of exercise in America. We can and must change this for the better! We must evolve better habits to stay physically acive and mentally fit, understanding that the 'rules' have changed and we can adapt and avoid obesity, avoid diabetes, avoid cancers which go up dramatically in the obese , and avoid heart attack and stroke which also dramitically increase in the obese.
We can do this together- but we must work together to develop an individualized plan for success! From the Journal Heart, June , a study of 24, participants confirmed that calcium supplements caused a near doubling for the risk for fatal or non-fatal heart attack over the 11 year study period. There's a reason from other studies: It's ALL about a healthy lifestyle. TV is called an 'idiot box' for a reason-- watch enough and you turn in to a self destructive idiot.
As Americans we're able to review research on humans from around the globe who get it 'right' and those who get it 'wrong'. These same successful people watch virtually no television, and instead engage in activity and conversation with their fellow LIVING, breathing, humans. These healthy and wise humans eat large amounts of vegetables and remain active into their 's. It's time to live again! From the British Medical Journal, July 10th The 'oral fixation' of putting something--anything in one's mouth to feel 'okay' according to Dr Sigmund Freud continues to receive support from human behavior.
This small group of successful people were either encourgaed, or 'figured it out' on their own: People 'crave something' to fill themself inside and feel adequate. Without a 'road-map' people lose direction and are soon lost. Instead of the 'right' thing, people settle for 'anything' and put 'anything' in their mouth while mindlessly watching TV for 40 hours a week.
By searching for and accepting 'anything', these people have 'nothing' inside of them and remain empty inside! Except these folks now have developed another set of problems: Look around at the massive obesity epidemic.
Everyone craves the same thing- to be 'full' inside. Many people have become confused that the 'thing' they crave is food- since some food 'tastes' good for the moment. True substance is not food, rather it is a deep and abiding knowledge with an inner satisfaction of purpose and a path to permanent growth.
There was a time when people looked up to becoming or being a part of something greater than their own being: The sense of truly belonging. For many, this emptiness is mistranslated into acquiring food to stuff oneself. Empathy, kindness, love, and a concern for greater things above oneself- these greater concepts are rarely spoken of anymore, yet they are the substance which all humans crave. They are the greater substance which we need to return to as a people.
Come on by the office. Let us open the window for you to see more than your mere circumstances. In the growth of understanding there is always great beauty. But how bad is it? While watching TV most people eat- beyond reason. Nielson reports that overall, in , women watched more television than men for all age groups.
So, the numbers supplied below reflect the lower male numbers and higher female numbers of hours of television watched per viewer by age:. Come over to our office and start your Simeons Protocol started to get you into better shape so you can do more, so you can be more, and so you can achieve more. Brief interrputions of prolonged sitting meaningly improve overall health outcomes.
Advising patients who spend most of their day sitting has no downside to getting up and moving around at least every 30 minutes. Brief periods of activity blunted serum glucose and insulin responses to meals. So, a few minutes of physical activity each hour confers metabolic benefit in otherwise "sedentary" people. It's time to regularly get up and take a walk outside with a friend. From the Journal Arthritis and Rheumatology, May So, according to the study, being overweight really is a 'pain in the back'.
But we've concluded this same set of facts from simple observation of pregnant women over the past 4 decades. Nearly every pregnant woman complains of low back pain in the final third trimester of pregnancy.
The back pain is relieved when the baby is delivered. Think of all of the "pregnant appearing" women and men who complain of back pain. After a period, the discs become damaged from the excessive pressure and then pain begins and then worsens without any weight loss.
Your back will be happy you did! From the Annals of Neurology, May 17th In a study looking at 6, women mean age at entry of study was 66 , and looking at detailed food diaries over a 4 year period, two major factors arose which clearly affected memory. High saturated fats think fried foods were assocaited with significantly worse global overall mental functioning. In contract, higher mono-saturated fats were associated with better global memory function.
This well researched article proves that a diet rich in vegetables should be selected from those vegetables in the red, yellow, orange, and green groups.
The "brown" food group- things fried and then dipped in more fat suaces will kill the heart it's been known for years that saturated fats are associated with cardiovascular death and it's now shown that mental decline is directly associated with a poorly choosen high fat diet.
Let's eat our proteins, our veggies and our fruits as our main sources of energy. We'll have better heart health and better mental health. Here's to living better! Looking at 5, adults with diabetes, we saw that 'typical calorie expenditures' translate to TV watchers versus folks with more activity.
A pound of fat consists of 3, kcal. Translated, that means that every 4 days the 'active group' burned a pound of fat while the inactive group stayed fat.
On the other hand, the inactive group could tell you who won "Dancing with the Stars" contest that week-where the only exercise by the audience at home was 'jumping to conclusions' and 'moving food to mouth'.
The study results show that when diabetics actually venture outside their homes and apartments and walk and breath fresh air-- some engage in additional outdoor activities! By getting people away from their TV they could reengage in life and have better mobility and better health! We can all learn from the study and put down the remote control, turn off the TV for hours a week , quit gorging and regain a 'normal' amount of an hour a day outside enjoying fresh air and seeing other live humans outdoors.
This as one more study that proves you can and should reengage in life! You can do this: Unless there's a storm with lightening, go every day. Get out and 'lighten' up the load you're carrying. Recent studies confirm that metabolites which burn fat are only created when a person walks, jogs, or swims.
Let's do this together each day! Come on by and see how lifestyle and the Simeons Protocol can work to get you active once again in losing weight and getting in better health! You deserve to feel better! From the British Medical Journal, August 7th Population Based Retrospective Cohort Study. The observed trend for a higher fracture rate osteoporosis and non-osterporosis related was higher in 2, patients who underwent Bariatric Surgery stomach stapeling, gastric bypass at 3 to 5 years post-op compared to 10, obese people who did not undergo surgery.
In short, there's a significantly higher risk of breaking back, hip and thigh bones after bariatric surgery. The first rule in medicine: Bariatric surgery is not "safe". With the long distances we travel, in New Mexico, the program has been very popular!
For patients outside of the immediate Santa Fe area: People in the distance weight loss program will come in once a week, and once a week will bring in their menus and weight progress.
Systematic review and Meta-Analysis. The detailed analysis revealed associations between body-mass index and multiple adverse cardiovascular risk factors. According to the U. CDC, rates of childhood obesity have more than tripled during the last 30 years. We need to recognize some unhealthy behaviors and habits. Dysfunctional eating and watching TV 40 or more hours a week while eating is destroying American's sense of self, destroying people's drive to achieve great things, and is 'dumbing down' the population of the U.
But we can do this! We must demand more from ourselves. We can achieve greater things. We can develop new habits, engage in new activities, and develop a drive to be constantly growing. This life we have is a precious gift. We can all learn and apply some new behaviors and habits to have a healthier and happier life.
We've put together some simple questions and answers to help think about a few things most Americans don't realize. Follow these ideas below after losing weight on the HCG Program, and you're going to have a much better life:.
The human brain shrinks as people age. This 'atrophy' or shrinkage is associated with loss of memory. Current studies- including those published over the last 6 months confirm what studies have for concluded for the past 4 years: Mental activity counts- but not nearly as much.
