Ever wonder why those holiday pounds just won’t quite? It’s because you are doing something wrong when it comes to weight loss. Losing that extra weight from Christmas and New Year’s Day can mean extra anxiety for many people. Now that Valentine’s Day (and chocolate feasting) is upon us we may find that a few extra pounds turns into ten or fifteen pounds.
“With a record number of Americans now considered overweight or obese we are living in an alarming state of poor health,” says weight loss guru Pavan Vaddey. According to Vaddey “More than 58% of the American population can now be classified as obese. We are living in a full-blown epidemic.”
The Center for Disease Control now defines obesity this way:
- If your BMI is less than 18.5, it falls within the underweight range.
- If your BMI is 18.5 to <25, it falls within the normal.
- If your BMI is 25.0 to <30, it falls within the overweight range.
- If your BMI is 30.0 or higher, it falls within the obese range.
For some, it may be the right to turn to medical weight loss clinics as an option instead of exercise or perhaps in addition to dieting. A medical weight loss clinic is a unique experience that provides a medically-supervised weight loss regimen. Medical supervision means a physician oversees treatment. The regimen can include anything from the prescribing of phentermine, a powerful weight loss drug or the use of Seratonin Plus, a unique hormone treatment.
“What makes losing weight so frustrating for many people is the simple fact that they don’t understand the concept of a lifestyle transformation. Weight is not about what we eat solely. It is about how we live, why we eat, how often we exercise and how often we site in a sedentary lifestyle” says fitness trend watcher Abdallah Gad.
Are you spending more than one hour a day in front of your television?
Are you walking or bicycling to the store for that carton of milk a couple blocks away or taking your car?

Do you ever snack after dinner and before bed?
