Get the body you deserve

Monday, 9 January 2017


Feeling confident and comfortable in your skin is something that everyone strives towards, but is easier said than done. Sometimes we can achieve the desired outcome by ourselves, and sometimes we need to take all the help that we can get.

Getting the body that you’ve always dreamt of is no easy task, and no-one understands that better than the team of doctors at Health Renewal.

A not commonly known fact is that one’s resistance to Leptin plays a big role in the ability to shift excess weight. Leptin is a hormone found in fat cells, which regulates our metabolism.

Those with low resistance to Leptin are lucky enough to be able to eat almost anything without gaining weight, whereas those with a high resistance only need to glance at food and see it sit on their hips.

Structural fat protects the organs by acting as a cushion, normal fat is stored as reserves for when the body needs it – both of which is essential for the body to function optimally. Abnormal fat, however, is excess fat that is hard to lose.

The Medical Weight Loss program from Health Renewal is specifically designed to improve the body’s sensitivity to Leptin. This programme consists of four aspects:

1. Low GI diet

A flexible and balanced meal plan that assists in changing eating habits without starving the body. The diet can easily be maintained by those with busy schedules and is even suitable for school children. Patients with medical problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure have been successfully treated with this programme.

2. Weight loss supplements

A range of supplements formulated and tested by a team of experienced medical doctors, containing the most up-to-date, natural weight loss ingredients.

3. Daily shakes

A daily meal replacement low GI shake is incorporated into the well-balanced diet, to ensure optimal nutrition.

4. The Lipotropic (HCG) injections:

HCG injections, prepared and sealed in a sterile laboratory by qualified compounding pharmacists is used. In order to sustain the body’s normal metabolism, the authentic, stabilized HCG is required at the correct daily dosage. At Health Renewal, a unique, non-synthetic, bio-identical hormone is compiled for each patient, based on specific patient requirements.

With the support and motivation from the support team from the beginning of the process, each candidate knows that this is a journey they are not walking alone.

The results are in fact so fantastic, that 22 contestants lost a combined 375,90kg during the latest Slender Challenge, which ran over a 12 week period. The winner lost a total of 34.1kg and said that the programme completely changed his life.

Once you are rid of the excess weight, cellulite can remain to be an issue and even though regular exercise and a healthy diet help, the only way to really see results is to start with a combination of treatments, such as Carboxy Therapy, Radio Frequency, Ultra Massage and Endermologie treatments.

When these treatments are combined, a number of concerns such as fatty deposits, loose body skin, cellulite and sluggish lymph drainage are addressed.

    I would not prefer injections, it’s too extreme for me.

    I support using shakes as meal supplements 100%. Replace one meal with a shake. It’s fewer calories while receiving the needed nutrients. So far it’s been working for me.

    I believe a diet trumps exercise. First figure out a diet that works for you and develop a healthy relationship with it. Make time to have a solid habit before you move on to exercise so that you can know when you need to add more calories to enhance you goals. I appreciate the information shared.

    As someone who is quite passionate about health and fitness, I’m not really into the whole supplements and injections thing as I believe it promotes a reliance on them as the only way to lose weight. With that being said, however, I love that Health Renewal has placed an emphasis on educating customers about the science of losing weight and liken their program to a journey that continues after the 12 week period with regular exercise and a healthy diet.

    Healthy eating and exercise are the way to go. Injections are a little too drastic for me.
