Most visitors who come to our site come here for one of two reasons: they want to lose weight or they want to get healthy. Both reasons go hand in hand. But there is more to losing weight, in a healthy way than just starting a diet program. Making a commitment to improve your health and reduce your weight is one that takes a great deal of will power to face the hurdles that are thrown at you during the beginning of your journey. Generally, most of our clients, notice a significant change in the ease of the process as the first few pounds are shed.

There is no greater muscle to care for than your heart. And because we don’t actually see our heart muscle, it is sometimes difficult to tell that there is anything wrong or that our health may be in danger.

And those who carry extra pounds can actually be causing their heart to work overtime, eventually finding that it can no longer keep up.

But while men might say women are just being poor sports, there might actually be a reason men and women should just give up competing with one another.
