Getting it Right Weight Loss ProgramGetting it Right is a weight loss program at Laurel Ob Gyn Associates that focuses on healthy life style changes. The two foundations of the Getting it Right plan are CONVENIENCE and KNOWLEDGE.
What better place is there to lose weight and become healthier than in your gynecologist office-the place you know and trust and from where you are already receiving care? Why go anywhere else?
Knowledge is power. Know your numbers. Do you know what your cholesterol or blood sugar values are? What about your BMI? Are you at risk for diabetes? What is insulin sensitivity or metabolic syndrome? Could you have it?
Our food plan is a marriage of Weight Watchers Simply Filling Techniques and the South Beach Diet. It is also based on the most recent medical information, and it does not involve the purchase of pre packaged products. You won’t hear us call it a "diet", for as you know-a diet is something you "go on" and "go off". Let us give you the skills to learn how to eat for the rest of your life. We want to work with you to learn how your body works and to help you get healthier. Yes, we all want to look better, but in the end, what really matters is how long you live...to look better!
What Makes Getting it Right different from any other weight loss program you might have tried previously?
Our focus is identifying and treating those individuals with hyperinsulinism (elevated insulin levels that generally precede pre-diabetes). 3 out of 4 people who present in any given medical practice for weight loss have it and most have never been screened for it.
Hyperinsulinism affects your body by increasing your appetite and decreasing your metabolism, resulting in fat storage, particularly around the midline. If diagnosed, there is a medication available that can decrease your appetite, increase you metabolism, and increase your weight loss (& is on the "cheap" generic list in most pharmacies!) Statistical data from the first 6 months of our program showed that the group identified with hyperinsulinism and treated for it lost more weight than the group on appetite suppressant meds.
