Brianna Marie Foundation 5K run set for March 7 at Wickham Park in Melbourne
THE DOCTOR’S CORNER: In this edition of Dr. Mark Pinsky’s “The Doctors’ Corner,” Aran Hissam talks about the Brianna Marie Foundation and the organization’s upcoming Brianna Marie Foundation 5K run set for March 7 at Wickham Park in Melbourne. Hissam’s daughter, Brianna Marie, passed away on March 16, 2012, 15 hours after she was born. However, those 15 hours turned into the greatest of life’s inspirations for Aran, who started the foundation in her honor to help raise awareness for fetal illnesses such as fetal hydrops, the condition that took her only daughter. Above, watch as Dr. Pinsky spoke with Aran about the Brianna Marie Foundation and the upcoming 5k run – this is an inspiring story and one you don’t want to miss.
DR. MARK PINSKY: Everyone Has Different Goals. We Can Work On Yours.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – For many, January is a time for promising themselves they will finally keep their New Year’s resolution of becoming healthier by losing weight.
Why is this year different? Nothing will be unless there is a commitment to change. I need you to change your thoughts, abolish the word diet from your vocabulary.
Your lifestyle is about to positively change.
Sounds complicated. Not so, because at Dr. Pinsky’s Medical Weight Loss Clinic, we are committed to helping you achieve your goals.
We will teach you very simply how to eat and what your plate should look like. Our goal is to provide you with the tools that provide lasting results.
This is not about giving you shots, creating starvation or having you count points or calories. This is all about you and creating an individual nutritional plan customized for you.
Your program is medically supervised by me and has been endorsed by the President of the American Academy of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Craig Primack, who is nationally-known and has co-authored the book “Chasing Diets.”
He and his partner currently operate four clinics around the Scottsdale Arizona area. Dr. Primack often collaborates with me on cases and I’m grateful for his expertise and guidance.
While we can all acknowledge that weight loss is important, the real goal is fat loss. Visceral fat has been proven to be a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers.
This program achieves most of its weight loss from the reduction of body fat. Our data shows that at least 75 percent (usually 90-95 percent) of your weight loss will come from fat loss.
That’s phenomenal and no program can make that claim. How do we know this? From the moment you start the program, we obtain measurements on a scale known as an INBODY SCALE.
This extremely accurate scale measures muscle mass, fat mass, total body water, weight and of course your percent body fat.
Seeing is believing, and monitoring these numbers serves as a very positive reinforcement to patients that we are on the right track.
There is also an educational component to the program featuring online classes that can be obtained via an app for your phone or with a link for your computer.
These classes are taught by exercise physiologists, psychologists and nutritionalists, and deal with subjects that include grab and go eating, how to eat and travel, and the importance of not skipping meals, just to name a few.
Our research shows that participation in these classes and enhances weight loss by up to 50 percent in some cases.
At Dr. Pinsky’s Medical Weight Loss Clinic, we recognize that some patients need additional help in achieving their weight loss goals and the use of medications as an adjunct to our comprehensive program is sometimes suggested.
The type of medication chosen is based upon the patient’s medical history because some medications may be dangerous for them. Prior to starting our program, all patients receive an EKG as well as a panel of bloodwork to make sure there are no obvious hidden rest factors.
Our goal at Dr. Mark Pinsky’s Medical Weight Loss Clinic is to TRANSFORM YOU BACK TO OPTIMAL HEALTH.
For a free consultation on how we can help you change your life, please contact us at 321-255-2289 or visit us at PinskyWeightLoss.com and we look forward to sharing in your transformation.
