Lipo Light Body Sculpting

We all want to feel good about ourselves and we’re always looking for ways to make sure we can achieve our goals. There are many different body sculpting methods out there, from wraps to intrusive procedures, which can take you out of commission for days, weeks, or even months. There has to be a middle ground in there somewhere. Thanks to a lot of research and many painstaking hours of testing we have that middle ground and it is called lipo light body sculpting. In this article you will learn what lipo light body sculpting is and how it works, in a brief overview.

What is Lipo Light Body Sculpting?

Lipo light body sculpting is one of the most recent discoveries utilizing light to speed up the process your body naturally uses to burn fat. When combined with exercise, lipo light becomes a very effective way to lose inches off your body. Lipo light uses up to sixteen pads that are placed directly on the skin to achieve the best results. Treatment times are about forty minutes long and take place over a four week period. It is recommended that you receive these treatments twice a week over that time period and follow your treatments up with exercise to continue to show results. After the initial lipo light body sculpting treatment period it is necessary that you then choose one of two follow up treatment paths: The first is that you continue to receive maintenance treatments up to twice a week or move onto another part of the body to sculpt. You can also combine the lipo light treatment with the Zerona cold laser treatment to employ the unique benefits of both body contouring therapies.

How does Lipo Light Body Sculpting Work?

Lipo light body sculpting works by using light to target Chromophores. Chromophores are part of a molecule that has the ability to absorb certain types of visible light wavelengths. Some of those light wavelengths cause the fat cell to become permeable by changing the cells round shape. This light creates what is known as photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation is becoming an applicable therapy for many different things in medical as well as veterinary fields because it causes cell stimulation to get clinical benefits. For lipo light body sculpting the cells that are targeted are the adipose cells which then release and break down the fatty acids and turn them into glycerol. Glycerol is what gives you energy which is why it’s important to exercise. The exercise will also help your blood circulate better therefore resulting in a better outcome from your therapy.

With the aid of lipo light body sculpting, exercise, and sticking to your treatment regimen you can achieve your body appearance goals. Be sure to stay hydrated during treatment periods and get your rest. You can find some more excellent information about lipo light here. With the help of lipo light you can look and feel your absolute best and you deserve that. Be sure to contact your local lipo light professional for more information and to find out if this is the right treatment for you and your lifestyle.

HCG Injection and Diet – A Modern Treatment for an Age-Old Problem

The Nu-Living HCG Diet is designed to provide speedy weight and metabolism correction that lasts. Through the use of an HCG injection phase and a very low calorie diet, patients have noticed daily results. While every situation is unique and there are many variables that affect the results, such as total caloric intake and exercise level, the Nu-Living HCG Diet has shown to be an overall highly effective weight and metabolism correction program. Individual weight loss results may vary depending on the specific very low calorie diet (VLCD) prescribed and on the patient’s adherence to the dietary instructions, but many patients experience day-to-day results during the HCG injection phase of the program (using a diet of 500-600 calories). This healthy and fit weight loss may occur for 3 to 6 weeks depending on the patient’s unique circumstances, along with current condition of health and specific body weight goals. Essentially, the weight loss occurring with the HCG diet depends on a patient’s starting point, caloric intake, exercise routine and level of compliance with the diet requirements. It is common for our patients to lose anywhere from 15-40 lbs. during the 6 weeks of the HCG injection phase. Guided by strict medical supervision of Dr.Terlinsky, it is not unusual for some people with an intake of 500-600 calories per day to experience noticable results in the first week alone!

How Does an HCG Injection Work?

By using a safe HCG injection in combination with enhanced nutrient fortification and a personally prescribed VLCD, the NU-Living HCG Diet promotes high maintenance of lean muscle tissue and the reduction of high-risk, excess body fat. Hunger can be significantly and noticeably reduced with maintained vivacity using this safe and scientifically valid program. Dr.Terlinsky has a passion for providing the very best health solutions for each and every patient he treats, and this is shown with his personalized approach to treatment with the HCG Diet and HCG injection. He consults with each patient to learn the personal and unique particularities of his/her situation in order to prescribe the healthiest, most effective Diet and HCG injection schedule possible. Particularly long-term results may be achieved with Nu-Living’s modified HCG diet. This consists of a high protein VLCD in the range of 800-1000 calories per day which can produce a vigorous weight loss each week during the HCG injection phase of the program. This less strenuous VLCD in the 800-1000 calorie daily range may provide weekly weight loss and is also the most popular choice of our HCG injection patients. Dr.Terlinsky presents a spectrum of VLCD diet choices during the first office visit for his patients to use with the HCG injection. This helps ensure that each and every patient is prescribed the correct program plan that works the best for his/her individual situation, maximizing results.

Because of the many factors involved in the prescription and selection of the correct HCG injection schedule and VLCD plan, Dr.Terlinsky believes that the best way to get started with the Nu-Living HCG Diet is to have a short phone conversation to briefly discuss the patient’s current health status. This will help define the appropriate program and diet in order to provide the optimal results for each patient.

Weight Management

Upon completing individualized goals, patients may transition into weight maintenance, with the knowledge of nutrition and exercise requirements, as well as behavioral modification strategies that can help you manage your weight for the long term. You will receive new information at this point that is specific to your lifestyle, and you may at this point have your metabolic resting rate re-measured.

It’s important to note that maintaining your goal weight is half of the weight loss process. When developing a long-term weight maintenance plan, you and your physician will find a solution that works best for you and your individual needs. For example, you may choose to discontinue taking appetite suppressants and explore new creative cooking ideas or develop more intensive exercises that help keep you at your goal weight.

Nu-Living HCG Diet

Nu-Living’s HCG Diet is an innovative, physician assisted, speedy weight and metabolism correction program. It combines a safe, modern, scientifically valid, modified protein sparing very low calorie spectrum of diets (variable VLCD) with enhanced nutrient fortification and the safe use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone (HCG) to promote maintenance of lean muscle tissue and loss of dangerous, excess body fat while maintaining vitality and significantly curtailing hunger.

Typical Amount of Weight Lost

Individual weight loss results may vary depending on the calorie content of the specific VLCD prescribed and on patient adherence to the VLCD instructions. Many patients experience daily results during the HCG injection phase of the program, using a 500-600 caloric diet. Ultimately, weight loss achieved with the HCG diet depends on a patient’s starting point, calories consumed, exercise performed, and degree of compliance with the diet protocols. Our patients commonly experience dramatic weight loss during the HCG injection phase over 6 weeks. It is not unusual for some people on 500-600 calories per day to experience noticeable results in the first week. This is accomplished under strict medical supervision by Dr.Terlinksky”

Great results, particularly long term, also are achieved with Nu-Living’s modified HCG diet consisting of a VLCD with high protein in the range of 800-1000 calories per day which can produce a robust weight loss each week during the HCG injection phase of the program. This less arduous VLCD in the 800-1000 calorie daily range usually results in weekly weight loss and is the most popular choice of our HCG injection patients. Dr. Terlinsky will present a spectrum of VLCD diet choices for his patients to use with HCG injections during the first office visit.

Meal Choices

The Nu-Living HCG Diet also incorporates a metabolism boosting detoxification component and an easy to follow choice of meals. Dr. Terlinsky believes one size does not fit all when it comes to the meals for the Nu-Living HCG Diet. Choices include meals from program provided, detailed recipes for “all food” plans of breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks, or hybrid program plans using a combination of some food meals with meal replacements in the form of shakes, bars and other medical foods. There is also an exchange list program for those people who want to take basic food components and make their own meals. For the person on the go, Dr. Terlinsky has also created a nutritious VLCD based around popular TV dinner type meals. The Nu-Living HCG Diet can provide meal protocols for patients using HCG injections combined with an all meal replacement liquid modified protein sparing VLCD.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement For Women

Over time, hormones decline in women and need to be replaced or rebalanced to relieve symptoms and to optimize your health and wellness. In millions of women, menopause is the culprit for most of the hormonal imbalance, including estrogen and progesterone. Many women also suffer from low testosterone, adrenal fatigue, thyroid hormone imbalance, and low growth hormone. Some of the imbalance of hormones is inevitable; the symptoms aren’t.

Dr. Terlinsky’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program can easily eliminate your symptoms while correcting your hormonal imbalances to improve your health and well-being and get you feeling like your old self again. Based on your individual needs and desires, Dr. Terlinsky will tailor the hormone replacement program just for you and provide you with a customized treatment plan for optimal rejuvenation.

Here are some of the things Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can do for you:

  • Relieve symptoms
  • Prevent memory loss
  • Improve heart health
  • Prevent bone loss
  • Stimulate growth and repair

Stay on Track with your Diet Traveling

On the Plane

Most airlines have stopped offering meals on flights, unless you’re flying for an extended period of time. The good news is that you can take control and bring healthy food with you. The best food choices are portable snacks (such as fresh fruit, granola bars, whole grain crackers). Raw nuts, healthy trail mixes, and seeds are also great for travel; however, watch the labels as many of the packaged nuts and mixes in the airport are loaded with unhealthy ingredients and trans-fat. Opt to purchase them at a grocery store or co-op before you get to the airport.

It is vital to stay hydrated during your flight. Avoid excessively salty foods and alcohol, and making sure you drink at least one quart of water during your flight.

In the Car

It is much harder to eat healthy while on a road trip. The desire to get there causes many people to make bad food choices (such as fast food and junk food from convenience stores). Instead, pack a variety of nutritious foods in a cooler filled with ice packs. Fruits and raw vegetables, sandwiches, crackers, yogurt and granola bars are quick and healthy solutions for the road. Stay away from sugary snacks, and pack plenty bottles of water so you don’t become dehydrated and tired while driving.

Because it is important to take a break from driving every few hours to stretch, you should always stop at a rest area to eat. If you absolutely cannot avoid stopping at a fast food drive-thru, there are still some healthier choices you can make. For example, if you order a hamburger, skip the cheese and condiments. Whenever possible, choose grilled meats instead of fried, and eat salads with low-fat dressings.

In Your Hotel

Because vacation is a time to relax and kick back, many people fall into the trap of the convenience of room service and a mini bar. However, choosing food from either of these two places can wreak havoc on your body. To avoid temptation, do not accept the mini bar key when you check into your hotel. If you decide to order room service, try to pick healthier options such as salads with low-fat dressing or grilled meats with vegetables.

If your hotel offers a continental breakfast, try to stay away from the donuts and sweet rolls. Instead, you should choose fruits, whole-grain cereals and low-fat muffins. Eggs are a great source of protein, but skip the cheese and hash browns on the side. As with room service, if you are skeptical about what you are about to eat, ask the hotel manager for nutritional content information.

If you find out ahead of time that your hotel has a microwave and refrigerator, bring some of your own food (that way, you already know the nutritional content). In case your room doesn’t have a microwave, the in-room coffee maker can also double as a water heater when making meals such as oatmeal. If you bring food from home, it will reduce the number of meals you eat out or order from room service.

Out and About

Perhaps the hardest time to eat healthy on vacation is when you are out and about, visiting attractions and exploring the area. While on vacation, convenience plays a major role in the food choices you make. It is a lot easier, and cheaper, to grab a burger and fries at an amusement park than it is to have a salad. However, making healthy choices can keep you more energized to thoroughly enjoy your much-deserved vacation.

Consider finding a grocery store when you get to your destination and stocking up on healthy, portable snacks that you can carry with you while you’re exploring your surroundings. If you must eat food from a convenience stop, consider a grilled chicken sandwich or baked chips rather than greasy fries. You don’t have to deprive yourself, but save your indulgence for the treat you really love the most — and savor every bite. Make indulging a special treat rather than the norm on your vacation.

What is a Therapeutic Diet?

People struggling with weight loss have sabotaging thoughts, which make it nearly impossible to successfully lose weight. Behind all habitual behaviors are established thoughts and belief systems, which in the case of the overweight and obese, are often incorrect and maladaptive. A therapeutic diet counters these false beliefs by using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. A therepeutic diet, therefore, is one that is designed to change behaviors by restructuring thoughts and eliminating faulty belief systems.

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life!

In the Nu-Living Weight Loss Program, we will teach you to address sabotaging thoughts with helpful responses. The Nu-Living program is a physician-designed and assisted, comprehensive medical weight loss program for overweight and obese patients who are seriously ready and willing to embrace a therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) ending their weight control problems forever. The program recognizes the unique requirements of each weight control patient and it provides customized treatment plans and individualized, one-on-one care. Nu-Living Weight Loss will teach you how to…

  • Believe in yourself!
  • Diet successfully
  • Redefine the meaning of FULL
  • Start over THIS MOMENT after a minor setback
  • Say to yourself “Oh, well!” when accepting your restrictions
  • Resist unplanned eating
  • Keep yourself motivated to lose weight
  • Avoid cheating
  • Resist tempting food
  • Soothe your emotions from hunger, cravings, and stress WITHOUT food
  • Motivate yourself to exercise

…all by changing your thinking.

Zerona-AD for Upper Arms

Nu-Living is now offering Zerona-AD, a new procedure that can be used in conjunction with Zerona Cold Laser Treatments for a targeted sculpting effect. Based on the same technology as Zerona Body Contouring, Zerona-AD is the only device currently on the market to specifically target and sculpt the upper arms.

How Does it Work?

Zerona-AD is effective in reducing upper arm circumference and providing long-lasting results with high patient satisfaction without any pain or side effects. -Dr. Mark S. Nestor, MD PhD

Zerona-AD uses a patented rotating beam that has been clinically proven to target fat cells, safely causing the release of fatty lipids from within fat cells of the arms causing the fat cells to collapse and shrink to a smaller size, which reduces the circumference of the arm.

Unlike other technologies, Zerona-AD returns the body’s fat cells to a smaller size, but does not kill or remove fat cells. The fatty lipids then enter the lymphatic system where they are broken into free fatty acids and used as energy in the cardiovascular system. It is a truly non-invasive procedure with no pain, side effects or recovery time.

FDA Approved as Safe and Effective

In June 2012, Zerona-AD was approved by the FDA as a safe and effective way to reduce upper arm fat. FDA approval came following the completion of a placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind multi-center clinical investigation of 62 participants. The results obtained from the study showed a combined reduction in arm circumference of 3.7cm (1.50 inches) in the treatment group versus 0.31cm (0.10 inches) in the placebo-controlled group after six treatments over two weeks. Long-term follow-up at an average of 7.6 months showed results persisted with essentially no change from the two week measurement.

Dr. Terlinsky Attends the Obesity Medicine Association Fall Conference

Dr. Terlinsky has been a member and a certified diplomat of the Obesity Medicine Association, OMA, for almost 2 decades.  The OMA, formerly The American Association of Bariatric Physicians, provides cutting edge education for physicians in the field of obesity medicine and is a nationally recognized medical organization dedicated to advancement in the treatment of obesity.  

I always look forward to the fall. That’s when I attend many medical conferences and I love medical conferences! I go to 5-7 medical conferences per year. Starting last December, I have been to the annual meeting of the A4m (American Academy of Antiaging and Restorative Medicine), Endocrine Society, European Society of Hypertension, Obesity Medicine Association and the North American Menopause Society. Before the end of 2018, I will attend a Concierge Medicine conference in Atlanta, a Precision Medicine conference in Hershey, PA, Laser Therapy Conference in Baltimore and the back to Las Vegas for the 2018 A4M.

In Washington DC, between Sept 26-30 I was at the OMA meeting and here is what I heard:

Mental Health Considerations in the Treatment of Obesity

Many psychiatric conditions and eating disorders are present in patients with obesity, and these conditions may interfere with obesity treatment. Many clinical are useful to help address psychiatric problems and eating disorders during obesity treatment.

Update on Bariatric Surgical Procedures

There are new developments in bariatric surgery, such as a more aggressive Roux-en-Y and SIPS (stomach intestinal pylorus-sparing surgery). There has been FDA recent warning on gastric balloons.

Bottom line: 50% classic Roux-en-Y, 50 % Gastric Sleeve.

Lap Band is out.

Exercise Physiology

There are many reasons to exercise beyond weight loss. Even if you do not lose weight, if you exercise, you will decrease your chances of heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, and sudden death. You will live longer if you exercise. The worst thing for health is the sedentary lifestyle. Sitting for 4-6 hours a day is like the new smoking. Exercise needs to create some perspiration for it to be valuable.

The Role of the Mediterranean Diet for Weight Control, Optimal Health, and Longevity

It is interesting to compare scientific results for health and weight loss when comparing various diet strategies. There is the Mediterranean diet, the ketogenic diet, and the low-fat diet. Guess which one has no scientific basis for any success at all? If you say the low-fat diet you’re correct.

As it turns out in the long-term the ketogenic diet and the Mediterranean diet are about equal. However, weight loss occurs faster with the ketogenic diet. Motivation is a significant factor in patient compliance with a diet. Short-term and tactically ketogenic diets keep people interested.

The Ketogenic Diet

Did you know that there were several levels of a ketogenic diet? It all depends on how low you go with carb restriction. The most intense ketogenic diet starts around 20 g and that is basically the Atkins diet which is very high in fat. If you do this diet successfully you burn through all the fat. If you do not become ketotic because of excessive carb intake wind up eating too much fat and their goal is your cholesterol. On the other hand, if you follow a 60-80 g ketogenic diet there is far less fat. That may be safer for people who have underlying vascular disease, diabetes and coronary artery disease.

Understanding and Managing Food Cravings

Do you know the difference between hunger, thirst and a craving? Hunger was caused by low blood sugar and it is very difficult to resist just as holding her breath. Drinking water eliminates hunger if the hunger was based on thirst. Cravings have nothing to do with blood sugar or body water status. Cravings go away in 7-10 minutes particularly if you can distract yourself. What is an anti-craving? That is when you have an aversion to a food for example spinach. Can you overcome this? Absolutely!

Medications for Obesity-related Diseases

5 years ago, there were virtually no safe FDA approved medications for obesity. We now have many. The problem is many providers are not able to prescribe the right medication for the right patient profile.

What’s in the Pipeline for Anti-obesity Medications?

Less take the following conditions: High cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

In the case of cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension, all these conditions initially had very few drugs that were effective and most of them had unfavorable side effects. That has changed over the last 20 years and now we have excellent medications for high cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension. Moreover, many of these medications have been proven safe and effective and prevent cardiovascular disease. We are using these medications in combinations.

What about obesity? We will remember fiasco of Fen/Phen. Many obesity medications have been taken off the market for adverse side effects and dangerous cardiovascular effects. But we have a new age now. Obesity medications both given singularly and in combination are catching up with high cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension. There are many new drugs in the pipeline which will be game changers.

Precision Medicine in Obesity Treatment

Around 2000, the human genetic code was broken. We are now reaping the benefits and people can now obtain the genetic profile relating to their health.  It is like getting your owners manual for your body.

Precision Medicine uses genetic information, refer to as genomics, to predict all sorts of useful information including the best medicines for a patient, the best nutritional strategies for patient and now the best nutritional plans for the overweight and obese. We are just at the beginning.

I learned about the relationship between genetics and obesity, including current research on genetic factors that influence individual variability for weight gain. I was excited to hear that there was a role of genetics in the prevention and treatment of obesity.
