Does the Lipolaser work

Happy 2012 readers! It’s a new year, which means that people have resolved to lose weight, get into shape and start on the path to a healthier lifestyle. The problem is most people don’t know how to reach their fat loss, weight loss or health goals.

Well, the answer is INEVO Contouring. As you know, our revolutionary lipolaser helps to remove stubborn areas of fat, tighten skin and melt away the inches, but no matter how good that all sounds, the real question people are asking is, “Does the lipolaser work?” The answer is yes, but you don’t just have to trust us!

We believe in our lipolaser because of the clinical research, which was performed by Chromogenex, the company that invented the iLipo. The clinical papers are titled, Low Level Laser for Fat Reduction and Body Reshaping – Case Studies with the I-lipo laser diode system.

The purpose of the study was “ to report the ability of the iLipo laser diode system to be used as a fat reduction and body reshaping system, offering patients immediate and long term changes to specific problem fatty areas.” A single treatment study was done on 20 participants, and a single case study was presented of a female participant that received eight treatment sessions over a 4-week period.

The results were amazing. Of the 20 participants, all lost measurable fat, after just one treatment session, ranging from 2.25cm to 5 inches, which confirmed, “the iLipo lasers effectiveness for immediate ‘inch loss’ with no reported adverse effects during of post treatment.” The female participant, who received a total of 8 sessions over a 4-week period, lost 9 inches of fat, 11 pounds and reduced her fat index from 39 to 35.2 percent.

The conclusion of the clinical trial is clear. “The iLipo low level laser device offers a patient a fast, non-invasive and pain-free treatment option for immediate and long-term sub-cutaneous fat reduction of problem fatty areas on the body.”

Fitness Tips: Surviving the Holidays

The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with family and friends, enjoy good food and relax. Realistically, the holidays can be stressful – jammed packed with shopping trips, to do lists, and overeating. This usually means there is little time to just take a breather, let alone workout. Well, INEVO Contouring wants to help! We’ve complied a list of fitness tips to help your survive the holidays. Remember, it’s important to take a little bit of time and take care of yourself! If you keep up with your fitness routine now, you won’t feel guilty later!

– Don’t set unrealistic goals. You normally might have time to work out 45 minutes a day, but now your days are filled with baking cookies, shopping and wrapping. Instead of stressing out, trying to find 45 minutes – relax. Cut back your workouts to 20 minutes a day, then if you have some extra time one evening, workout a little bit longer. Once January hits, ramp back up to your normal routine.

– Stay active on the weekends. It’s easy to want to cuddle up inside and watch a movie or have friends over for cocktails. Instead, consider doing something fun and active outdoors. Why not suggest an ice skating trip, a powder puff football game or a snow fight?

– Drink your water. In the winter, you might not think water is as essential, but it is! Water not only keeps you hydrated during your late night wrapping sessions, it also keeps you feeling full, since thirst is often mistaken for hunger.

– Enjoy yourself. Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine. So find reasons to smile and laugh this holiday season. You’ll reduce stress, burn calories and enjoy yourself!

Enjoy or Avoid: The Thanksgiving Edition

So Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner, and while the holidays are a great time to enjoy good food with family, you still might be wondering what are the healthiest options when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.

INEVO has compiled a list of foods you can enjoy and foods to avoid, but we want to say this, if there is something you really want to enjoy Thanksgiving day, then allow yourself to splurge. Everyone deserves it, but just remember, everything in moderation! Enjoy and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy: “White” meat turkey; Avoid: “Dark” meat turkey

  •  3 ounces of “white” turkey breast will save you around 50 calories and 4 grams of fat from its darker counterpart. The white meat turkey has around 115 calories and 7 grams of fat, while the dark meat has around 160 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Enjoy: Green bean casserole; Avoid: Sweet potato casserole

  • Traditional green bean casserole, including the creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions is around 161 calories and 9 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup, which is a lighter side than sweet potato casserole that has around 285 calories and 5 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup. If you can’t say no to the sweet potato casserole, don’t feel too bad. It is still full of good nutrients including beta carotene and vitamin A.

Enjoy: Pumpkin pie; Avoid: Apple pie

  • Pumpkin pie is the better choice with 216 calories and 14 grams of fat per slice (around 1/8 of a 9 inch pie). Apple pie, on the other hand, has 411 calories and 19 grams of fat for the same-size slice.

Enjoy or Avoid – The “Diet” Food Edition

Dieting doesn’t mean eating tasteless, fat-free, low calorie foods. Instead, making informed, healthy choices will help you stay on track and leave you feeling full and satisfied. Below we’ve come up with a list of  healthy foods to enjoy and “diet” foods to avoid!

1. Avoid – Puffed cereal with skim milk
Yes, it’s true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But eating breakfast is only half the battle, you still need to make healthy choices! Skim milk and puffed cereal may seem like a healthy, low-fat option, but the low fiber content won’t satisfy your hunger, and you’ll be left wanting more.

Enjoy – Rolled or steel cut oats.
Oatmeal is a satisfying and filling breakfast that will give you that needed boost of energy in the morning. Stick to the plain variety and add in a little brown sugar, fruits or even a tablespoon of peanut butter to satisfy your cravings.

2. Avoid – Plain rice cakes
Rice cakes are good for you, but when you notice that you’ve eaten half a bag in one sitting – well that’s a problem. These little cakes are low in fiber and have a high glycemic index, which means you’re probably going to be finishing that bag before you feel satisfied.

Enjoy – Rice cakes with some cream cheese or peanut butter.
A spread on top of your rice cake makes it a balanced choice that is fulfilling and satisfying. If you’re craving something sweet, add a tablespoon of peanut butter, or if you want something salty, then add a tablespoon of cream cheese.

3. Avoid – Light yogurt
With sweet, artificial flavors, light yogurt doesn’t leave your body with enough to digest, which means your stomach will be hungry for more.

Enjoy – Low-fat Greek yogurt
The high protein and creaminess of low-fat Greek yogurt makes it a better choice. If you want to add in some flavor try a dash of cinnamon or add in your favorite seasonal fruit.

4. Avoid – Apples
Okay, so you’ve heard “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” And it’s true – apples are good for you. However, if you eat just an apple for your daily afternoon snack, you may tend to overeat at dinner. That’s because just a plain old apple is not a balanced snack.

Enjoy – Apples and nuts (or cheese stick)
Eat an apple and some nuts too! If you combine your usual afternoon snack with a few almonds or a cheese stick, yes you might be getting some extra calories, but they are well worth it because it will keep you fuller longer.

The trick to any “diet” food is to ensure that it provides you with enough nutrients to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Remember that spicing it up or adding variety keeps things from getting boring. Also, keep in mind that if you let yourself indulge once in awhile, you will be less likely to splurge and overeat later.

Health and Fitness at INEVO

INEVO is dedicated to helping people look and feel better. We believe there are 3 components to fitness, and it’s important to incorporate all three to boost your metabolism, shed pounds and restore energy!

  • Component 1: Aerobic and cardiovascular activity  – These exercises support heart and lung health, and they are the best types of exercise to melt away your belly fat.
  • Component 2: Strength training – It is an important component that many people don’t do when they are trying to lose weight. Strength training helps increase muscle tissue while boosting your metabolism.
  • Component 3: Stretching Exercises – These exercises improve your flexibility, increase circulation and relieve stress.

Let’s look at the first component, aerobic and cardiovascular activity, a little bit closer! Cardio exercises are a fun way to get your heart pumping, but after awhile running, spinning or watching that same workout tape again can get boring.

Also, it’s important to note that too much repetition in your workout will slow down your results because you will begin to plateau. It’s important to add a little variety, which will also give muscle groups a chance to recover on their days off!

So how can you spice up your card routine and maximize your workout? Below are two great new card exercises that you should try!

  •   Zumba: This high-energy card routine is becoming all the rage, and if you haven’t tried it yet – well, you should! It is a dance workout that combines latin dances (Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton) with fun club-like music! Zumba incorporates squats, kicks, lunges and plenty of other moves to get your heart pumping and feet moving!
  • Cardio Kickboxing: This exercise is a combination of martial arts, boxing and traditional card movements. This includes nonstop bobbing and weaving, punching, high-kicks and so much more. After this intense workout, you’ll definitely feel the burn!

The LipoLaser and Belly Fat

Written by Darren Dubyak D.C.
* Dr. Dubyak, of Peak Performance Chiropractic and Nutrition Center, is continually helping people reach their healthcare goals.  He is proud to offer total health and wellness solutions, including: chiropractic care, nutrition counseling, rehabilitation, Disc Decompression Therapy and LipoLaser sessions. To learn more, please visit his website at: www.drdubyak.com.

What is the LipoLaser?
Our LipoLaser is an innovative and revolutionary technology, offering clients an easy, painless and effective way to lose belly fat and contour their bodies. Compared to surgical liposuction, this non-invasive treatment requires no needles, is more affordable and provides similar results.

How does it work?
The LipoLaser paddles emit low levels of energy, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. The free fatty acids are converted into energy, while water and glycerol are released through natural metabolic functions. This process is a normal response, which means no unnatural reaction is created during the LipoLaser sessions.

What makes the LipoLaser different?
The Lipolaser paddles are placed directly on the skin, which allows for targeted belly fat reduction and results in substantial body contouring improvements. By utilizing the LipoLaser to target specific areas of the body, we can contour, shape and melt away the stubborn inches that are resistant to diet and exercise.
