A: Obesity is directly linked with Diabetes Type II and hypertension, and is a contributing risk factor for many other conditions including heart disease, sleep disorders, arthritis, gall bladder disease, stroke, and several forms of cancer. Awareness and monitoring of body fat percentage can be a motivational tool for a fitness or weight management program. Additionally, with any chronic degenerative disease, monitoring body fat and lean body mass is critical to evaluation, treatment, and management of the condition. This information is helpful in determining a suitable exercise and nutritional program on an individual basis.

Back in June of 2014 – I started out horrible over weigh, out of shape and on meds for diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and acid reflux. 3 weeks into the first time I took the class, I was off acid reflux med, and reducing my diabetes medicine. By the end of the first time, I was down from 4 pills of Metformin to only 1. My blood sugar has evened out and is so much lower and about 3 weeks after the class, my blood work showed my cholesterol is great and my blood pressure is great andI’m down a total of 52.4 lbs.
Just because you’re ‘thin’ doesn’t mean you are healthy. For YEARS I have cycled on & off of various fat-burners. Not just for the appetite suppressant but for the energy. One thing I noticed when taking these supplements was that various knots in my body would grow when I was on them and would shrink when I stopped. Sure, all of the advertisements touted the ‘safety’ of these products, yada, yada, yada, but REALLY?! If you have cysts in your hands and wrists that grow when you’re on a certain product, something isn’t right. But still I continued…. Honestly II feel so much more energetic these days.
