32 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 1.17 Get 2017 Started with Medical Weight Loss @ The Village For a Healthier, Happier, More Satisfied You Losing weight is not easy and being overweight is not a character flow! It is the result of biological and societal factors unique to everyone. What works for one person to lose weight may not work for someone else. At Medical Weight Loss @ The Village, American Board of Obesity Medicine certified doctors own and staff the practice. Clients meet face-to-face with doctors who have spent years intensively studying weight loss medicine and passed rigorous exams. Over the last three years, Medical Weight Loss clients have lost on average 8.7 lbs of body fat (not just weight) in the first month. After the first month, patients average 5.2 lbs of body fat lost per month of treatment. Approximately 80% of clients lose at least 25 lbs and around 75% make the goal weight they established on the first visit. No long-term weight loss program is easy. Clients also realize there's no cure to the propensity to gain weight. Medical Weight Loss clients know if they start to regain weight they can return to the practice for treatment. Only FDA approved medications and treatments are employed and treatment costs less than $100 to get started. Each month clients spend about $110 for treatment and there are no contracts. To learn more, visit medicalweightlossatthevillage.net or call 502- 426-2295. Health Tips A quick and essential tip for weight loss involves eliminating high calorie beverages. A combination of four soft drinks or sweet teas per day can add up to 3500 calories per week, which is equivalent to one pound of body fat. — Dr. Vincent Lusco, Louisville Surgical Associates Visit the dentist every six months to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. — Kentuckiana Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, PSC For younger athletes, periods of rest between sports and during the season, especially for throwing athletes, can minimize the risk of overuse injuries such as stress fractures. — Dr. Kris Abeln, Baptist Health Medical Group Orthopedics There are several advantages to targeted therapy. Because medication is delivered to the spinal fluid, waiting time for targeted therapy to take effect is reduced. Also, the patient does not have to remember to take their medication. — Dr. Ajith Nair, Kentuckiana Pain Specialists Watch the liquid calories. Calories in liquid form, like juices and sugary coffee drinks, are absorbed more rapidly and cause huge insulin spikes which lead to fat deposition. God gave us teeth. Use them to eat real food! Your waistband will thank you. — Shawn McCarty, M.D., Medical Weight Loss @ The Village Special Advertising Section
