Metabolic Syndrome is estimated to be present in 34% of the adult population in the United States. Metabolic Syndrome is diagnosed by the presence of three out of five of the following medical conditions:
Central obesity >40 inches in men and >35 inches in women
Blood pressure >130/>85mmHg
Fasting blood glucose >100mg/dL
Triglycerides >150 mg/dL
HDL cholesterol <40mg/dL in men and < 50mg/dL in women
Metabolic syndrome increases the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
Our 8 Weeks to Wellness can identify if you have Metabolic Syndrome and then show you the steps to reverse it. 8WW is a proven system that creates habits involving diet and exercise, to improve your health and well-being.
When the Rolling Stones sang, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” they weren’t talking about 8WW.
Before new patients participate in 8WW we ask them to write down five health goals they would like to work for and achieve. This is an important part of the program. You have to have a reason why, written down, and easy to remind yourself, during those hot, hour long, high intensity interval workouts, coming your way within a few short weeks.
These health goals vary from patient to patient…
“I want to reduce or stop taking my blood pressure medication.”
“I want to lose 20 pounds.”
“I want to be able to run an entire 5k.”
“I want to wear the same dress size I wore five years ago.”
Next to each item write down the reason why you want this for yourself. It’s not just about losing 20 pounds, but how that will change your life. Will it bring you more energy to keep up with your kids or grand kids? Or is it to reduce and prevent diseases that run in your family, from heart disease to cancer?
When you know what you want and why you want it, each workout is just a step closer to reaching your goal and improving the quality of your life.
If you’re ready to start working towards your goals, we welcome you to join our upcoming wellness talk, on Wednesday July 31st at 6:15pm. Give us a call, and we’ll save you a front row seat!
The doctors and staff and Kambeitz Chiropractic is proud to announce that this week, the program has surpassed another milestone – Over 300 pounds have been lost by program participants since the program launched in August 2012!
Here is the thermometer that we track the progress, as we focus on our goal of helping 8WW patients lose 1,000 lbs.
At the same time each week 8WW participants weigh in and we record their progress.
The program which combines, exercise and proper nutrition is conducive to reaching many health & wellness goals. Some patients start the program because they don’t want chronic pains to limit their activities, others are there to lose weight, others are looking for an all encompassing program that will help them change their lifestyle.
Program participants have ranged from all ages, body shapes and fitness goals. We have had people from their 20s to their 70s participate. We have had patients who only needed to lose a couple pounds to patients who wanted (and did) lose more… even 25 pounds!
Come check out the thermometer and before & after photos on our 8WW wall of fame, located between the front desk and gym.
And of course we want to congratulate the patients who are working hard, losing weight, and changing their lives. It’s truly inspiring to see firsthand how patients are feeling better and reaching new accomplishments that they didn’t even expect, through 8WW!
