Weight Loss is the Best Medicine

From hypertension to bad knees, nowadays you can get a prescription for practically any ailment you have.  However, medication can only provide relief fora certain amount of time and even though you are treating the ailment, you may not be treating the cause.

Obesity can be the cause of many health risks such as elevated blood pressure, high cholesterol, back pain, diabetes, the list can get extensive but I think you get the point. Even though you have different complications they could all be coming from the same source.

Take Jim Carpenter for example, he once weighed 518 pounds, and had the health risks to prove it. Jim suffered from heart failure, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stage one kidney failure, knee pain, and other health issues. Needless to say he took a multitude of medication for these varying ailments. But guess what medicine worked best for him?

After Jim lost almost 300 pounds he no longer needed medications for his diabetes, blood pressure, kidneys, as well as decreased his cholesterol medication. All this from losing weight! Weight gain and obesity can bring on many health problems and risks, but WEIGHT LOSS can potentially to do the exact opposite, without the medications that only deal with the surface and not the underlying problem.

Recent study found that doctors find it more and more difficult to talk to their patients about their weight. As a result when the patient brings up a health problem, instead of getting to the core of the issue, they write a prescription. As a provider, don’t fall victim to filling out prescriptions when there are better more effective ways of treatment. As a dieter, medicine will alleviate the pain (even if temporary), but see if there are other ways to improve your quality of life!



Dieting notoriously focus on what we eat. What about what we drink? While beverages provide refreshment, hydration, and at some times nourishment, hidden in many seemingly innocent beverages could be lots of calories that sabotage your success!

Did you know that a 12-ounce can of soda averages 150 calories and a 12-ounce can of regular beer is about 160 calories? Recent study showed that an American diet has 21 percent of its calories comprised of beverages alone.

This explains why most diets encourage water; not only does water refresh and hydrate, it fills you up while keeping your calories down. There’s no restriction on how much water you can drink and it is one of the best (if not, the best) beverage to drink while exercising.  Another great beverage to consider when trying to lose weight, or just to be healthy in general, is green tea. Green tea is well documented for how its compounds, nutrients, and antioxidants benefit the body. However, it is best to use tea bags instead of buying it already made from your grocer’s fridge to keep calories and sugar low.

A lot of our “hidden calories” go into our beverages. Next time you go to take a sip, consider the drink.
