All of us say it, some of us do it.  What's your New Year's Resolution? 

Americans, about 45%, usually make a New Year's Resolution, 38% of that will be weight related resolutions.  With 8% continuing a success rate.  If you're nodding your head and thinking "Yup, I'm one of those people, "  take heart.  Your objective is a noble one, and if accomplished, will surely do wonders for your health.

Making small changes to your eating habits can have a big impact on your calorie intake.  Giving up that daily soda habit saves 150 calories. Eliminate 250-450 calories by switching a starbuck's muffin to a bowl of oatmeal at your desk 250-450 calories saved.  Swap your latte (180 calories) for a cup of java and nonfat milk:120 calories saved.  Making all three of these changes could save you as much as 765 calories a day.  In 1 week that could be as much as 5,355!!  And that's without eating your veggies.

A good fitness program consists of exercises that works the whole body.  A cardio work improves the function and health of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels.  Weight-bearing exercise enhance the function and health of the bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissues. Start low and then gradually progress. What most people forget is that you didn't become deconditioned and out of shape overnight.  So you shouldn't expect to become well-conditioned overnight.

What can you do to stick to your resolution this year?  Well for starters, resolutions are more effective when you write them down on paper.   Breaking your resolution or goals down "lose a pound a week" rather than generalizations to lose weight.  This could mean the difference between actually sticking to the resolutions and giving it up by February 1st.  You're a lot more likely to reach your goals if you focus on the steps you need to get there rather than the end results.

If you are like most people then you may want to see and feel more immediate results to keep on the right path.

If you are like most people then look no further.  Sarasota Interventional Radiology has what you've been waiting for with Zerona.

The ZERONA is a new body sculpting procedure designed to remove fat and contour the body without  invasive surgery. ZERONA unlike other procedures allows the patient to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, or pain.  ZERONA works by utilizing the Erchonia Lipo LASER to emulsify adipose (fat in cells) tissue which then releases into the interstitial space(outside the cell). The excess fat is passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification. The ZERONA procedure was proven through a double blind study in which patients averaged a loss  of 3.5 inches, and some lost up to as much as 9 inches compared to the placebo group that only  lost a half an inch.

The Treatments will take 40 minutes  over the course of three times a week for two weeks for best results. The laser will be applied over the targeted area  ex. waist, hips, and thighs for 20 minutes and then the patient will turn over and do the same treatment on the opposite side.

After completion of the two week protocol, clinical trials resulted in an average of 3.5 inches lost. As with any procedure, results will vary and may be more dramatic from one patient to the next. This is not a quick loss program- we are targeting the adipose tissue and are not taking off excess water weight. We are removing the excess fat to successfully shape the body for a more desirable outcome.

Think of the last time your waist was 2-3 inches smaller, your hips had that natural curve to them, and your thighs were thinner. With ZERONA treatments you now have an alternative to a shapelier figure without having to endure the fear, and sometimes painful process of a surgical procedure.
