Fasting: Longer Life Without Overweight

Now it is proven by studies in mice: Frequent longer breaks between meals are more important for our health than the exact type of food we eat! Why?

Fasting does obviously switch on the body’s own cleaning program named autophagy (“self digestion”), by which our body cleans itself by degrading toxins and defective cell components. This especially protects against premature aging, several diseases and also overweight.

There are many indications that frequent fasting also has a positive impact on the health in humans. Even from a medical perspective fasting as it is performed in many cultures seems to be useful. We keep you up to date!

Weight Loss after Liposuction?

Immediately after a liposuction the body weight remains approximately the same as before liposuction because the body stores liquid instead of the removed fat. As soon as swelling subsides, weight decreases as well.

If weight loss by dieting is practiced at once, it is normally easier to lose weight than without liposuction. The fat often goes away specifically from the “problem zones”.

Weight Loss: Hoodia Causes Decrease in Appetite

Hoodia, a substance of a milk weed plant which belongs to the succulents acts as appetite suppressant. Hoodia is used by South African natives since centuries to allow long marches through the savanna without disturbing hungry feeling. So hoodia is able to support weight loss. African tribes using hoodia also tell that it in addition increases the energy level and capability.

Losing Weight by Liposuction?

In many cases the medically necessary weight loss can best be initiated with a liposuction. The targeted removal of body fat on “problem zones” leads to a “kick start” for weight loss. There are several explanations, physiological and psychological. What is important: Liposuction is also an effective treatment for fat deposits that defy diet and training.

However, liposuction is not suitable for weight loss as sole therapeutic measure. As part of medically-assisted weight loss it gets combined with a therapy with bioidentical hormones that is tailored to the patient’s individual needs, as well as with changes in lifestyle habits, dietary changes and workout program.

Being Overweight: Weight Loss through Dietary Change

Being overweight or obese can occur due to hormonal imbalances. In some instances, this may be attributable to thyroid problems, for example Hashimoto. However, obesity is predominantly due to an inappropriate dietary regime, i.e., eating too much, and above all, consuming a diet rich in carbohydrates such as pasta/noodles, potatoes, rice, bread, and especially sugar.

Nowadays, sugar is mixed into many industrially processed foods without the consumer’s knowledge. Therefore, sugar is often present in ham, sausages, cold meats, cornflakes, etc.

In my opinion, a healthy and balanced dietary regime is a “Stone Age” diet, in other words a diet that contains lots of meat, fat, fruit, and vegetables; however with small amounts of grain products and other carbohydrates.

My team and I are happy to guide and assist you through a medically-assisted weight loss therapy on your journey to your ideal weight.

Losing Weight with Chocolate?

Is this possible? Yes, but of course not by eating conventional chocolate which includes sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Who adores the endorphin thrill given by chocolate without risking a gain in weight has to grab at 100 % bitter chocolate.

This requires a certain habituation, but turns to account: Chocolate contains valuable plant compounds like antioxidants and is very healthy if it is free from sugar or other sweeteners. Even though you may find it a little bitter ;-).
