This father's day give yourself the gift of health. As we get older, with the demands of life arise, our metabolism takes a beating. Testerone levels decline, diets decline, and activity level wanes then our waistline expands. Next thing you know, the metabolic health of the person also declines. Many metabolic health problems include hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and obesity, which can have long-lasting health challenges. The ring around the waist is referred to as the love handles. This is when a person carries extra fat around their waistline.


The love handles contain subcutaneous fat. These are not as dangerous as visceral fat in your abdomen. When someone has subcutaneous fat, this is known as visceral fat. The fat surrounding the internal organs increases the risk of the disease includes type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. If your love handles are greater than 40 inches or more, they may both be carrying subcutaneous fat as well as visceral fat. Losing weight is necessary to help the body maintain health. Whereas visceral fat responds to exercise, stress reduction, and reduced calories, love handles are far more stubborn.


Eating a restricted calorie diet can help burn to weight loss. Monitoring portion sizes, reducing sugars, and assisting the bodies ability to digest can help the body rid itself of those pesky love handles. Lean protein choices and ample drinking amount of water can also be extremely helpful in allowing the body to heal itself from excess weight. Proper metabolic health and nutrition are necessary to rid the body of love handles, visceral fat, as well as subcutaneous fat. Eating one hour upon waking as well as consistently eating throughout the day is critical to the metabolic health of the person. Eating consistently allows for stable blood sugars, and as the blood sugars stabilise, the body can heal. Blood sugar stabilization is a foundation and a key for good health. Without a stable blood sugar a person has a difficult time building the health of the body.

Moderate to intensive cardio can keep the heart as well as the body burning stubborn calories. Short bursts of exercise such as HIIT training can be easier and develop quick short term gains in aerobic fitness. A movement is a natural form of detoxification as well as a metabolic health booster. As you increase the metabolism, the body will naturally detoxify itself as well as shed any unnecessary weight. Weight loss is a natural form of detoxification.


Strength training such as crunches, planks, and strengthening the abdominal walls can also target the bulging midsection. Strengthen training combined with cardio activity can help the body in ridding itself of unnecessary visceral fat while reducing a sedentary lifestyle.


Having a thorough metabolic health assessment can be helpful to determine a person's needs and goals for their health. We offer two metabolic health programs that include body contouring to shrink the fat cells. A metabolic health assessment includes a thorough consultation, nutrition plan, exercise plan, as well as body contouring sessions to be able to shrink, tone, and trim the midsection. Even though we are not exclusively a men's health clinic, we work with many fathers on creating a healthcare plan that fits everyone's health needs.


As we age, more care and attention must be taken to rid the body of unnecessary weight. Where we were able to be carefree and eat or drink as we pleased in our youth. The older years proves to be a little more challenging as the body takes on more toxins, more stress, and bears the burden of more unhealthy lifestyle patterns. Luckily help is one phone call away. We are trained not only to help you uncover these lifestyle habits but also why people develop these habits, to begin with by getting to the root causes. As we uncover the root causes of these behaviors, we can find freedom in getting well and healing once and for all.
