• The Skinny on Sugar Burning vs. Fat Burning

    Most Americans have a sugar-burning metabolism. This is a result of our highly-processed, readily-available convenience foods that are everywhere in the market today. In this fast-paced society of “grab & go”, families are dependent on the relatively inexpensive, yet easy-to-assemble meals that are not always the best for a metabolism. Take a look down any major boulevard in this country and you can find the temptations of fast, convenient, and satisfying options for meals. From the fast food chains to the coffee & donut shops, Americans are deeply dependent on a high carbohydrate, syrup-laden, fatty diet. And it’s not just the drive-throughs that offer corn syrup and preservatives that jam up our metabolism… walk through any mega grocery store and you can find the same. Grocery stores had 1 or 2 frozen food aisles when I was a kid; now there are 4 or 5! What’s going on? Food is a big business, and the longer you can have it sit on the shelf & still be consumable, the better.

    At our weight loss in Orlando clinic, Svelte Medical Weight Loss Clinic, our goal is to interrupt this sugar-burning syndrome called “rebound hunger”. Rebound hunger is a phenomenon where you get hungry a couple of hours after having a high carbohydrate/starch laden meal. You are not really hungry, but the hunger center in the brain responds to a stimulus from insulin levels in the blood and tells you to eat something “sweet.” Rebound Hunger is the result of an unstable insulin level directly related to the high sugar, high carbohydrate, processed food supply. At Svelte, we transform your metabolism from sugar-burning to fat-burning through stabilizing your insulin level, which decreases inflammation, enhances cellular function, and enables gluco-neo-genesis, the fat burning potential of your metabolism.

    The Svelte weight loss in Orlando program is structured and simple. We give you a specific, customized meal plan for you that will optimize your ability to burn fat instead of sugar. The weekly B12/fat burner injection is critical to keeping insulin levels stable and the loss of excess fat. We also prescribe oral fat burners, appetite suppression, and supplements that improve cellular function, decrease appetite, and promote fat burning. There are no hormones prescribed on Svelte & we like you to eat all day long! No starvation.

    Our clients tell us that they actually save money when they go on Svelte because they eliminate the expensive lunch, on-the-go drive through foods, and overpriced coffee treats. One surprising consequence of a fat burning metabolism is that you stop craving sweets and carbs! You will have more energy, sleep better, and be able to focus like never before.

    Once you experience the Svelte weight loss in Orlando program, you are empowered to keep the weight off for life! You will learn that foods are much like drugs & cravings can be triggered. Instead of feeling guilty about giving in to a craving, you will understand it was what you ate earlier in the day that left you in rebound hunger. You will understand the importance of hydration & how water intake improves metabolism, takes the edge off cravings, and helps cellular function. Most important, you will have a new relationship with food, yourself, and your body.
