« Why are there so many people who are overweight? Dont they like to live healthy and keep their weight under control? Of course they do, but getting the right information about losing weight is not easy with so much misinformation around » says Andrew Simmons, creator of the website. He further explains that « Health & Fitness Pro website was created so that the public has access to reliable and highly informative content that provides a wealth of information about overcoming weight issues. With obesity continuing to rise, especially in the western countries, even governments have given this issue priority by formulating national plans to educate the public about the health risks and how to overcome them by eating healthy. Even fast food giants are now compelled to offer people a choice to order a healthy meal. » According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), If obesity is not controlled, 75% of Americans will be overweight by 2020.
« Among the people who are overweight, for the majority of them, losing belly fat is their primary concern and Health & Fitness Pro stresses on that strongly » says Andrew Simmons. « Losing stomach fat is not difficult if you know how to approach it with the right mindset. Though losing this stubborn fat does require some work it has become less difficult now as there are many proven methods that can help » he adds. More on shrinking stomach size from Health & Fitness Pro – http://www.healthnfitnesspro.com/diet-to-lose-belly-fat.php
Andrew Simmons further states that « Many people don’t even try to attempt to lose weight because they love food too much and cannot stand the thought of starving or staying hungry to lose weight. With the rap the diet programs have got with unsuccessful fad diets flooding the market, who would blame them? The key here is not to starve but to boost your metabolism with an eating plan like the metabolic diet that will turn your body into a fat burning furnace. » More about the metabolic diet from Health & Fitness Pro – http://www.healthnfitnesspro.com/metabolic-type-diet.php

According to Andrew Simmons « Visitors to this website can find in-depth information on not only how to lose weight, but keeping it off too. This is where many people get demoralized. That is after losing weight they are unable to maintain the new weight and start to pile on the pounds again. The not so ‘secret’ to weight loss is changing a persons’ current lifestyle that is the cause of the weight issues, to a much healthier lifestyle. It is mostly about the right food choices, being more active and a positive outlook. »

Diet Doc hCG Diet & Weight Loss recently conducted a survey of other leading hCG diet clinics across the USA and found that Diet Doc is the lowest priced (prescription), medical, weight loss program in the USA!
Diet Doc hCG Diet provides medically, supervised weight loss nationwide and is the only modern-day hCG diet in the USA capable of shaving 30 pounds per month reports Julie Wright, president of Diet Doc.
Many doctors only offer the original 1950′s Dr. Simeons HCG diet which promises dieters they will lose 1 pound per day if they consume 500 calories per day while taking injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg), a human hormone made by chorionic cells in the fetal part of the placenta during pregnancy reports Wright.
The reason other doctors are offering an extremely outdated version of the hCG diet is because there is no where to obtain this specialized training unless the doctor spends a few years studying the original hCG diet protocol and updating to present day medical knowledge on how hormones interact with weight gain and weight loss.
Diet Doc is an all-inclusive weight loss program which offers a specially formulated weight loss shake that helps burn fat and reduce cravings for carbohydrates. The shake is consumed 4x/day along with eating food purchased from the grocery store (unlimited vegetables, chicken/lean beef or fish and fruit). Diet Doc also formulated a weight loss oil which is flavorless, but used to make salad dressing and for cooking. The oil burns fat within 30 minutes of consuming reports Wright. Dieters receive one month of shake, weight loss oil, unlimited doctor and weight loss nurse consultations/support, and one month of injection or tablet (both are prescription) hCG and are given a large cookbook and doctor written weight loss workbook on the Diet Doc hCG Diet Program.
*These weight reduction treatments include oral hCG or an injection of hCGa drug, which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or « normal » distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets. Results may vary and cannot be guaranteed. Medical supervision and compliance with our program is required.

The 2012 Expo theme « Weight Loss for Wellness: Lose Weight, Feel Great, » was developed with our nation’s and our region’s ever-alarming obesity rates in mind. (The New York State Health Department’s most recent statistics indicate that 59.6 percent of Ulster County adults and 62.6 percent of Dutchess County adults are obese or overweight.) Obesity is often accompanied by chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Lifestyle changes required to achieve and maintain weight loss can be challenging. At any point in time, one in three women and one in five men in the United States are on some kind of diet, according to registered dietician and nationally recognized nutrition expert Mary Hartley, one of this year’s main stage speakers. « These diets produce short-term weight loss but two or three years later 95 percent of traditional dieters regain the weight, » she says.
This year’s main stage speakers will include:
Mary Hartley, a registered dietitian, writer and leader in the nutrition field, will discuss the concept of « Intuitive Eating, » a non-diet approach to weight-loss that « shifts the paradigm from weight-loss to wellness, from food fear to food pleasure and from body dissatisfaction to body trust. » Hartley is the former Director of Nutrition for CalorieCount.com, a diet website owned by The New York Times. Hartley helped develop the website, which aids members in managing their diets and weight, and wrote the popular Ask Mary, your personal nutritionist column.
Dr. Marie Pasinski, a staff neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and a faculty member at Harvard Medical School, is the author of Boost Your Brain Power and Beautiful Brain, Beautiful You – 7 Steps to a Better, Smarter Younger You.

Her approach bridges the gap between the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a healthy heart and delivers a toolbox of new scientific findings on what women at risk of heart disease can do to improve their own health;
Diane Carbonell, one of the nation’s top weight-loss bloggers, is a formerly obese 300-pound mom who lost 150 pounds and has kept it off for 14 years. Carbonell will share her « Fit to the Finish » plan for weight loss that focuses on the percentage of fat in our diets, exercise and portion size;
Jennifer Rumple, the Biggest Loser At Home Winner from « Biggest Loser Season Twelve, » will discuss losing 145 pounds while battling a serious knee injury on The Ranch.

She’s dedicated to inspiring others to make smart choices about nutrition and fitness and to live the most healthy, happy and amazing life possible;
Bernie Salazar, the Biggest Loser At Home Winner from « Biggest Loser Season Five », is now committed to helping combat the childhood obesity epidemic that is literally weighing down our nation’s kids. His book Monstercise focuses on getting kids up and active by encouraging them to use their imagination as they participate in a series of fun and exciting movements with the help of an imaginary little monster named Frank;
Michael Tischler, DDS, a dentist with a private practice in Woodstock, will discuss gum disease and overall health, eating disorders and oral issues for women, pregnancy and oral health, and healthy dental self-esteem.
Liz Neporent, a health and fitness expert, writer and social media consultant, will also moderate a panel of the main stage speakers in the afternoon, giving the audience additional time to ask questions. Neporent is a regular contributor to ABC News where her influential online Reporters Notebook series covers a diversity of health topics such as the psychology of barefoot running and obesity in fruit flies. She is author and coauthor of more than 15 health books including Fitness for Dummies, now in its 4th edition and Weight Training for Dummies, now in its 3rd edition.
In addition to the main stage speakers, workshops on a variety of topics will be offered during the day, including: Management of Infertility and da Vinci Robotics, Myths and Facts of the Supplement Industry, Living Well in Spite of Endometriosis, and You Have The Power to Heal Yourself. Eight fitness demonstrations will also take place throughout the Expo, among them: Body Flow, Zumba and Zumba Gold for Seniors, Smart Bells, Dance Like No One is Watching, along with others in cooperation with the YMCA and MAC Fitness. More than half a dozen chefs will offer cooking demonstrations.
Held at Tech City in previous years, this year’s Expo is moving to its new location at the M. Clifford Miller School because the increased space and layout there are better suited to main stage needs, cooking facilities, weight and fitness rooms and the ever-growing number of health and fitness professionals and exhibitors who will be participating, according to Dr. Debra Karnasciewicz, founder and director of the not-for-profit Women’s Health and Fitness Foundation and the Expo.

Will hCG make a man more feminine?
HCG drops and injections are perfectly safe for men to take with no risk of feminizing or other side effects.
Can hCG drops make me pregnant?
While Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is produced during pregnancy, taking hCG weight loss drops will not cause you to get pregnant.
Do I have to eat during phase 2?

Can I stay on the hCG diet permanently?
No. One should only remain on phase 2 of the hCG weight loss plan for 40 days straight staying on longer may cause the body to become resistant to the hormone.
Are hCG drops made from aborted fetuses?
The hCG hormone used to create homeopathic drops and hCG injections is made from the urine of pregnant women who produce it in large quantities while they are expecting. This process is completely hygienic and is completed in a lab.

SmartForLifeReviews.com has recently added a Learning Center section to their website where you can learn about dieting tips and tricks from the Smart For Life Meal Replacement Program. The newest addition to the Learning Center is to help mothers with post pregnancy dieting.
Many new moms often find it difficult to shed those pregnancy pounds as quickly as they had hoped. The urge to eat frequently still lingers once the baby is born, and most are lacking sufficient amounts of ideal sleep that is crucial for maintaining a healthy weight. First time moms may have an especially hard time because they are not accustomed to a newborns exhausting schedule. The Smart for Life Meal Replacement Program, created by Dr. Sass, is a perfect solution as a post pregnancy diet.
Although every pregnancy is different, moms who are pregnant once again realize the importance of maintaining a healthy pregnancy weight. Some have probably learned that attempting to lose the weight shortly after the baby is born is the fastest way to reach their pre pregnancy weight. A great post pregnancy diet is a must when attempting to lose the weight, but many moms may not even know where to begin.
Consuming small frequent meals during the day, as opposed to three larger meals, is a huge must when attempting to lose weight. The Smart for Life meal replacement plan re-teaches dieters how to eat small frequent meals throughout the day. Those on the plan substitute great tasting cookies for breakfast and lunch. In addition to the replacement cookies, new moms should drink plenty of water, and a sensible homemade dinner. The plan, which is even safe to follow while breast feeding, offers two post pregnancy diet plan choices.
The cookies included with the Smart for Life plan include natural and organic ingredients. They contain fiber to help curb hunger as well as the perfect combination of carbohydrates and proteins. The cookies are offered in Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Blueberry. They are sold in a variety of options such as nine day, two week, and five week packs. Those who purchase the five week pack are actually receiving one week free!
One plan was created for moms who are breast feeding. This option was developed with maintaining healthy milk production in mind. Breast feeding moms must sustain an 1800 calorie a day diet. This will ensure healthy breast milk production while losing weight. Continuing a multivitamin containing folic acid is recommended as is 2000 mg of fish oil per day. While enjoying the six replacement cookies 2-3 times a day when hungry, moms who are breast feeding should also consume 4 oz of protein for breakfast and 8 oz of protein for lunch. Dinner should include a healthy meal that includes 8 oz of protein as well as up to five servings of vegetables. A serving of fruit should also be eaten twice a day. The program also suggests 2,000mg of calcium a day. A doctor can help suggest healthy ways for moms to reach that level.
