Bill Lost 193 Pounds (His Initial Goal Was 20!)

billMy wife’s parents have been very successful with the GreenLite program and have been good about keeping the weight off.

When my wife started thinking about doing it, I jumped at the opportunity to support her by joining too. I wasn’t sure it would work on me, and on my original questionnaire I only put 20 pounds as my goal weight! I’ve lost a lot more than that and am lighter than I’ve been in 20 years.  Continue reading

Product Review: Just the Cheese

Just-The-Cheese-Crunchy-Baked-Cheese-White-Cheddar-740505442102One of the hardest things about a low-carb diet is undoubtedly snack time.

The desire for something crunchy, salty, and satisfying can take over and before you know it, you’re reaching for a bag of chips.

We recently discovered a client-recommended option, however, that’s both low-carb friendly and tasty (at least according to popular opinion among GreenLite staff!)  Continue reading

The Secret to a More Youthful You

(Special discounts are now available on purchases made before December 31st, 2014 – see end of page for details!)

At Greenlite Medicine, helping people lose body fat is what we do best. By losing the fat and our weight, we feel more energy and we improve our longevity. But believe it or not, there are situations where the little plumpness of fat provides a good thing.

Fat naturally adds volume and support to the face that keeps wrinkles from forming and your skin looking youthful. However, we start to lose facial fat as early as our 20s, and it’s a downhill slide from there – normal wear and tear, gravity and hormonal changes can speed up the process.

When this happens, we start to see less definition around the face, including sunken temples, forehead and brow wrinkles, the corners of the mouth turned down, hallowing around the eyes, flatter cheeks and slack skin around the jaw.

Luckily, there is a non-invasive way to restore facial volume and achieve smoother skin.

Fullness can be restored through a variety of fillers including temporary (like Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane), or long-term (Sculptra Aesthetic and Radiesse). 

Dr. Rugh is now offering these procedures exclusively to Greenlite Medicine clients, through Bloom Wellness!

The Procedures

Restylane & Perlane

Restylane and Perlane are both hyaluronic acid filler products that are injected into areas of the face for wrinkle reduction and facial “plumping.”

We like to use these more natural fillers, since they are restoring hyaluronic acid, something your body naturally makes, but loses with the aging process. The results with these fillers average around 9 months, however if restored fully, the treatment can last upwards to 18 months (based on clinical trials).

Fillers can be used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as parentheses or smile lines). Fillers may also be used to correct the loss of volume in your lips and in your cheeks.

Training & Expertise

GreenLite’s Dr. Sooji Rugh has been doing these procedures for over 5 years, under a separate practice named “Bloom Wellness.” We have not advertised it to our GreenLite clients until now because we did not want to take away from building GreenLite’s reputation as an expert company in weight loss.

Due to the rewarding results we’ve seen in clients, however, we were motivated to expand on the practice (and include some special discounts for trying it out this holiday season!)

These fillers are particularly nice because the effect is immediate. People may walk out feeling 5-10 years younger and the procedures are very painless and simple.

Naturally, we started to feel like these treatments are a good fit for our clients who work so hard with their weight loss and want to further reward and celebrate their new bodies. (Hey, it’s a non-food reward you can really enjoy!)

Here are some before and after photos that showcase the results:

Why Are Multivitamins Important for Weight Loss?

multivitaminsIt seems that when it comes to multivitamins, people have strong opinions.

Some are religious about popping a daily pill, while others think vitamins are an unnecessary invention designed by nutrition companies to make money.

Still others think that multivitamins might be a good idea if you’re pregnant, sick, or eating an unhealthy diet, but as long as fruits and vegetables are part of the daily rotation, you don’t need them, right?

Not exactly.  Continue reading
