Losing fat weight is not only about a better-looking body, but more importantly, about managing the health risks that can pose a serious threat to your long term health and wellbeing!

Lifestyle changes that include healthier eating habits, regular physical activity, and losing as little as 5-10% body fat, have shown effective and phenomenal health benefits much more than any medication can. Losing (fat) weight can prevent and even reverse existing chronic conditions, such as diabetes; high blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  Weight loss can also improve sleep apnea and other sleep problems — along with helping you feel better about yourself. 90% of diabetes, 80% heart disease and 60% of cancers are preventable with healthier lifestyles and maintaining normal body weight.
