When you look at a flight of stairs, do you feel a lumpy dread hit your stomach? Do you pull out every piece of clothing you own each morning, just looking for something that fits and doesn’t make you feel chunky? Does your morning routine include handfuls of pills that only mask symptoms that plague you every day? Finally, does your doctor look over your charts with worry and plead with you to make changes?
Maybe you didn’t know this (or maybe you did), but at Prolean Wellness, our team of health fanatics, doctors, and nutritionists work with some of the best chemists around to produce awesome supplements! A lot of research goes into these things. We analyze our clients, look at common issues that several of them deal with, and then figure out what natural solutions we can offer.
Many of our clients know about GlucoFactors, which we developed to help lower blood sugar levels. While they're great supplements, we’ve made some improvements and now proudly unveil GlucoFactors’ more attractive and impressive older brother: GlucoControl.
Let me clarify. GlucoControl is not just for diabetics or people with high blood sugar levels! If you’re someone who likes the occasional carb-y/sugary meal, if you want to manage your weight, or if you even just want to keep your body running at its best, consider GlucoControl as the answer.
As a society, we really like to measure things. We like to compare our own situations to the national average, our friends, or even imaginary ideals that are seriously impossible to reach. The weight loss industry capitalizes on this. Look around! They tell you to be within a certain weight range for your demographic. To lose it all because Marie Osmond could, or because the results on the Pinterest image are soooo impressive! That could be you--that ought to be you, right? No way.
Many different methods have been developed for measuring your overall fitness. One of them, the Body Mass Index (BMI), categorizes you as healthy, overweight, or obese based on your height-to-weight ratio. This index has been pretty widely accepted, but there’s a problem: it’s WRONG.
Mindless eating is a major culprit in the obesity epidemic in the United States.
If you are tired, bored, stressed, anxious, mad, lazy, sad or even happy, you probably reach for the bag of potato chips that has been calling your name all afternoon. You decide to eat it while watching TV and before you know it, you’ve eaten a whole bag of Cheetos!
Sound familiar? You are not alone!
Many people emotionally (over)eat (triggered by hormones) and don’t actually listen to their physical cues for hunger, such as needing fuel to begin your day, energy to have a productive day at work, and nutrients to power through your workout.
There’s a lot more to weight loss than a “calories in/calories out” mentality. Many people feel like trying to lose weight is resigning themselves to a lifestyle of misery, at least for 90 days or however long they think they need. The truth is that there are plenty of healthy ways to lose weight without starving yourself or even going hungry! If you go about it correctly, weight loss and maintenance will soon become part of your daily routine.
I recently worked as an intern in an office that was part of a large-scale corporation. At the end of my internship, corporate HR came around to our branch and gave out free health assessments to all of the employees on their insurance plan. After talking with the nurses, the head honchos determined that one of their greatest liabilities was—you guessed it—employee obesity.
