People are overweight because their calorie intake is greater than the energy they expel.

In order to lose weight we must take in fewer calories than our body needs.  One pound of fat is equivalent to 3,500 calories.  If you eat 3,500 calories more than your body needs, you will put on about 1 pound. If you utilize 3,500 calories more than you eat, you will lose about 1 pound in weight. If you are 10 pounds over-weight, that means you have accumulated 35,000 excess calories in the past.

How can I eliminate these excess calories?

If you were to attempt to lose 10 pounds in two weeks, you would have to reduce your caloric intake by 35,000 calories a week (2500 calories per day). Sounds simple?

If the calories from eating are greater than the calories that your body is burning, you cannot lose weight. If the calories your body burns surpasses the calories you take in, your body will use the stored excess energy, resulting in weight loss.

Our therapy addresses the physical aspects of eating and the addition of nicotine. Every person is different and has individual psychological and emotional aspects to deal with when losing weight, becoming a  non-smoker and reducing stress, hence, to that end, the process cannot be guaranteed. However, we will work extensively with each person to support their success. Copyright 2014 Center for Laser Therapy LLC
