Benefits of Our Physician-Assisted Weight Loss Programs

There might be a medical reason why you carry the excess weight, and the excess weight can lead to other medical problems. With Dr. Richardson’s specialty being weight loss, he is familiar with such medical weight loss concerns and will guide you to healthy weight loss.

A series of medical tests and a physical exam to ensure accuracy.

We go the extra steps to ensure your successful weight loss. That’s why we start with a series of medical tests: complete blood analysis, EKG and body fat composition. Based on this information, you’ll get the most accurate and effective program medically possible.

Because it’s medically supervised weight loss, you know your program will be healthy.

There are tens of thousands of products available that claim to help you lose weight; Only about 6% of them are considered safe and healthy.

You already know that liquid protein, shots or fasting can have serious-even deadly-side effects. And limiting yourself to only a few foods is not only boring, it can seriously endanger your health.

The key to successful medical weight loss is to combine a balanced diet, plenty of fluids, vitamins, minerals, moderate exercise, education and lifestyle changes. And because our doctor assisted diet program does all this, under the close supervision of a medical doctor, you know it will be healthy for you.

You will receive personal attention from our professional staff.

During your program, you’ll be treated by our staff with periodic medical evaluations and coaching. Once your program is planned, we don’t just send you off on your own. We provide you with information to help you make better food selections at home, restaurants and even when you’re out with friends and family. We also provide you with support staff who are here when you need them. And they will help you every step of the way to achieve your doctor assisted weight-loss goal.

You’ll even learn new behaviors to manage your stress and help make your life easier.

Do you overeat when you’re bored, angry, or frustrated? Is it hard to say no to food in a social situation? Are there certain friends whom you always eat the wrong foods with?

Our doctor can help you with all these issues. You’ll find ways to manage stress other than eating. You’ll discover how easy it is to change bad habits into new, healthy ones.

Sucralose and Weight Loss

Sucralose and Weight Loss
Posted on August 13, 2012 by admin There have been 0 comments

Sucralose is a popular food sweetener made from sugar, but is 600 times sweeter. Sucralose has zero calories and is stable in many different foods. Over the last several years I have had patients and friends ask me my opinion about Sucralose (Splenda). The strange thing is that even after I offer my supportive opinion some still seem uncertain. There are few that aggressively provide me with their professional overview of the dangers of Sucralose. However, there is one problem, none of them qualify as an expert in the field of nutrition, so I asked them to present me with some legitimate data supporting the risks or hazards of Sucralose –I still have not received any to date. As a matter of fact, I have discussed this topic with several respected nutritional experts and they agree that that Sucralose is a safe and effective sugar alternative.

Here are a few important statements about Sucralose:

“In determining the safety of Sucralose, FDA reviewed data from more than 110 studies in humans and animals. Many of the studies were designed to identify possible toxic effects including carcinogenic, reproductive and neurological effects. No such effects were found, and FDA’s approval is based on the finding that Sucralose is safe for human consumption.”
– FDA Talk Paper T98-16.

“There is adequate evidence, [for Sucralose], that there are no concerns about mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, development or reproductive toxicity.”
– Opinion of the Scientific Committee on Food of the European Commission on Sucralose, September 7, 2000

“The low-calorie sweeteners in the United States all underwent extensive testing before they were approved. Results showed that low-calorie sweeteners are safe for everyone, including children and pregnant women. Sucralose is the newest low-calorie sweetener on the market. Sucralose is not affected by heat and retains its sweetness in hot beverages, baked goods, and processed foods.”
– American Diabetes Association

“Sucralose (Splenda®) was approved by the FDA as a tabletop sweetener in 1998, followed by approval as a general purpose sweetener in 1999. Before approving sucralose, the FDA viewed more than 100 safety studies that were conducted, including studies to assess cancer risk. The results of these studies showed no evidence that these sweeteners cause cancer or pose any other threat to human health.”
-National Cancer Institute

“If you drink coffee or other drinks with caffeine, do not have more than one or two cups each day. It is okay to use artificial sweeteners such as Sucralose (brand name: Splenda) while you are pregnant.” Am Fam Physician. 2005 Apr 1;71(7):1321-1322.

Our Research and Development Team only uses sugar substitutes in certain product development. I am confident in our research and will continue to support Sucralose as a safe and healthy alternative to refined sugar.
