A Word from Dr. Stewart: Weight Loss Workshop Offered at Smile Savers
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 33% of American adults are obese, and about 17% of children aged 2 to 19 are obese. In 2010, not one state had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. According to Wikipedia, Metabolic Syndrome (or Syndrome X) is a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
As a dentist near Ellicott City, Maryland (and as someone who lives on this planet!), I see many people who fit this description. I also see patients who are currently taking multiple medications to combat these various diseases. We are starting a medically supervised weight loss protocol in our dental office for interested patients. When followed, according to its protocol, this diet has helped patients lose an average of 3-7 pounds per week! Dieters lose weight fast, but still retain muscle tissue. Additionally, many dieters have reduced or eliminated medications for the above mentioned diseases. These dieters have created a new life for themselves.
If you are interested in more information about this program, we will begin holding workshops this month. Please call the dental office at 410-730-6460 to put your name on the list for interested patients. We will contact you once we have the date and time set for the first workshop.
