Belly Fat Blast Off!

When people express frustration about their struggles with losing stubborn belly fat and ‘central adiposity’, my heart goes out to them as I’ve shared that struggle for decades.

That’s why our clinic staff got so excited with the revolutionary new Lipo Laser technology.  Here’s what we’ve observed with its use in our clinic:

  • Subcutaneous fat (just under the skin) is generally highly responsive to lipo laser therapy and we’ve seen up to 4” losses in waist measurements in only 1 treatment.
  • Because of the instant inch loss results with Lipo Laser, many people easily become highly motivated to address deep visceral fat issues.
  • The deep visceral fat is a different story and requires a dietary hormone – balancing approach.  The main hormone culprits are:

              Cortisol (also called the “stress hormone”)

              Insulin (also called the “fat storage hormone”)

Numerous dietary approaches, especially those with high quality, bioavailable protein shakes and supplements have emerged on the market and are helping many folks experience tremendously successful results!
