Lose Weight Change Your Vascular System | Dr. Kenneth M. Brooks

LoudounMarApr2016HRNB_Page_02According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 66 percent of American adults are considered overweight, and32 percent of them are obese. All that extra weight takes a toll on your body, increasing your risk for heart disease, stroke, and other serious health problems. The American Heart Association says that, “Losing weight is one of the key health factors and behaviors
that keep your heart healthy.” We at The Healthy Weigh NowTM are committed to fighting this epidemic, and the abnormal metabolism accompanying it.

Here is what happens to your vascular system as you lose weight:

• Blood vessels: Losing weight reduces your heart’s workload. Blood vessels supply the heart with the blood it needs to keep pumping. As you shed pounds, there’s less fat lurking around and forming plaque that can build up and clog your coronary arteries, causing a heart attack. Reduce your weight, reduce your risk. There is a direct relationship between a healthy weight and blood pressure.

If you lose weight, you may be able to reduce your blood pressure medications or even eliminate them. The Cardiologists supervising The Healthy Weigh NowTM are always pleased to “unsubscribe” medications!

• Blood fats: The blood fats, or blood lipids, in your bloodstream change when you shed fat and weight. Weight loss can make your triglycerides go down, your LDL cholesterol go down, and your
HDL cholesterol go up. That means there are more good cholesterol and less bad cholesterol and fat floating in your bloodstream.

• Blood clots: Sometimes blood slows down and can form clots. Healthy weight and lower blood pressure generally mean fewer blood clots, so slimming down makes it less likely that a clot will
break away and travel to your heart, lungs, or brain.

• Your belly: Fat around the belly and the heart are especially detrimental to heart health. A 2011 study, published in the journal Cardiology, found that even normal-weight people with a “beer
belly” or “muffin top” and heart disease have an increased risk of death than those with differently distributed weight. And research shows that hidden fat around the heart may be an even bigger
indicator of cardiac disease than the waistline. Maintaining a healthy weight is, of course, an important part of heart health. The Healthy Weigh NowTM will help you lose the weight and teach you valuable tools to assist in weight maintenance.

LoudounMarApr2016HRNB_Page_03Obesity Is A Modern Scourge

Most of us are consuming too many processed foods,  refined sugars, and starches such as grains, sweets, snack foods, etc. In order to regulate blood sugar, our pancreas secretes insulin to metabolize sugar (glucose). We don’t realize that when carbohydrates are eaten, they are broken down into glucose, and whatever is not metabolized for energy is converted and stored as fat.

When too many carbohydrates are consumed, the pancreas has to work too hard, resulting in insulin resistance. This leads to a drop in blood sugar which causes cravings for sugar and carbohydrates, beginning a vicious cycle of overeating, fat storage, and weight gain.

The Healthy Weigh Now’sTM easy 3 Level Weight Loss Plan stops the cycle, promotes weight loss by using the fat your body has stored, and burns that fat for energy. Weekly meetings with our
trained coaches guide you on the journey to a healthy weight. After weight loss, we are committed to providing you knowledge and guidance to maintain your weight loss for a life time. Our
program is medically supervised by board certified Cardiologists who work closely with clients that have medical conditions.

Whether you have 10 pounds or over 100 pounds to lose, THE HEALTHY WEIGH NOW is your key to success.

LoudounJanFeb2016HR_Page_03Obesity is a modern scourge that decreases the quality of our lives, shortens our time on this earth and makes us unhappy. We at The Healthy Weigh Now© are committed to fighting this epidemic, and the abnormal metabolism accompanying it. These abnormalities increase destructive  inflammation resulting in incremental atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, dementia, polycystic ovarian disease, fatty liver, arthritis, skin rashes, and diabetes. The morbidity from these entities is bankrupting our medical system and our national budget.

The Healthy Weigh Now© is a disciplined approach to a gluten free, low carbohydrate, modest protein diet supported by a discerning personal coach within a supervised medical community. Typical results will allow for a 3-5 lbs of weight loss per week. You will also learn how to monitor your weight loss and changes in your body’s fat and muscle composition. Most diets do not prepare patients with the knowledge required for maintenance of their weight loss! The Healthy Weigh Now© is structured to address recidivism and the cravings that frequently mitigate initial success.

Together we can be empowered to enjoy a happier, healthier future!! Please join us at The Healthy Weigh Now©!

Top 5 Questions From Our Clients:

1. Why do I need to attend the introductory seminar?

We feel it is imperative that our clients understand the science behind our gluten-free, low carbohydrate weight loss program, including why we gain weight, why we have difficulty losing weight and maintaining weight loss. One of our supervising, Board Certified Cardiologists will present this information in an informal, open forum. Our coaching staff is on hand to describe a typical day on our plan, and to offer advice from personal
and professional experience. Clients have the opportunity to sample some of our favorite meal replacement supplements and snacks, with ample time for questions. An informed client is a successful client!

2. How is this diet different from others on the market? 

“Diets” don’t work. Clients have to be ready for a lifestyle  change. If you follow our gluten-free, low-carb, low calorie plan, you will lose weight, but if you go back to your old habits once you reach your goal, you will gain back the weight. We offer one-on-one, weekly, face-to-face coaching with our trained staff, which is medically supervised. We offer a 3-level weight loss plan with a lifetime of coaching for a one-time fee. Once you are a client, you are always a client, from weight loss to transition and into a low-carb maintenance lifestyle.

3. What does “medically supervised” mean?

Our Medical Director is a Board-Certified Cardiologist, who is available to our staff for questions or consultation if medical needs arise. He personally calls clients’ physicians to discuss our program and ensure clients are approved to participate. We currently have two nurses on staff who work closely with the physicians and other coaches, as well.

LoudounNovDec2015HighResNoBleeds_Page_034. What happens during the coaching visits?

The weekly coaching visits are a time of education, accountability, planning and progress review. You will receive a body composition analysis (weight, BMI, body fat %, lean body mass, hydration), and body measurements (chest, arm, waist, hips, thigh), as well as encouragement, tips for success,
and strategies for improvement (if needed).

5. Who are the coaches?

With a passion for health and wellness, we come from various backgrounds and educational experiences and draw on each other’s strengths: nursing, cardiology, sociology, addictions behavior, fitness, wellness, nutrition and an understanding of the issues surrounding obesity. Plus, many of our coaches have a personal history of obesity and weight loss.

Doctor, Doctor – I’m Weighing Less! | Dr. Kenneth M. Brooks, FACC

LWM_MJ15_web_Page_16Did you know that one of the leading causes of health problems in the United states is OBESITY? Let’s face it, obesity in America is an epidemic. Our weight gain, poor eating habits and foods we eat are killing us. Recognizing that no one chooses to be overweight, unhealthy and uncomfortable our team of medical experts have brought a new keotic weight loss program into my cardiology practice. As a Medical Doctor, with 30 years of practicing as an interventional cardiologist I address the ravages of a modern lifestyle.

In 2012 I brought a ketotic weight loss program into the cardiology practice and began supervising patients in their quest to:

 

  • LOSE FAT
  • LOSE INCHES
  • LOSE 2-5 LBS. PER WEEK

Amazing! As our patients started to lose weight, their need for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol medication was greatly reduced. The program is now a mainstay and a part of my daily practice that I highly recommend to all who want a healthier lifestyle and improved health.

After much research on the effects of GLUTEN we launched a new product line – OUR OWN. The Healthy Weigh NowTM is a low carb, low calorie, gluten free product line that helps patients lose 2-5 pounds per week. The medically supervised program works. “Our clients are the biggest losers. While losing weight and following our life long program with a maintenance plan, our patients gain the benefits of healthy living and improved health
– the best prescription of all.”
