SlimPro Medical Weight Loss

Kathleen Gerace, DO has recently become a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP).

Obesity is a primary health concern with risk factors in coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, gall bladder disease, arthritis, peripheral vascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high triglycerides.

Dieting is hard when you’re doing it on your own. Do you know which diet is best for you, or which type of exercise will get rid of fat?

The basic mechanism is an imbalance between caloric intake and energy expenditure is only a partial cause. Evidence suggests that being overweight is multi-factorial in origin, reflecting hormonal imbalance, inherited, environmental, cultural, socioeconomic, and psychological conditions.

Increasing physiologic, biochemical, and genetic evidence suggests that being overweight is not a simple problem of will power, as is sometimes implied, but is a complex disorder of appetite regulation and energy metabolism. The SlimPro plan addresses both these issues.

At SlimPro Dr. Gerace will develop a customized weight loss plan that will help you drop fat and add muscle, all while feeling great! The SlimPro five phase protocol helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue. The phases change at intervals determined by the practitioner. With each phase, you will be introduced to a wider range of food choices. During the first phase of this five phase program, you will learn certain basic skills that you will use during the diet process; portion control, fluid intake and supplement usage. Once your goal has been accomplished, the SlimPro Maintenance program will provide the key for maintaining your goal, which will keep you on the right track towards long-term weight loss!
