Pound for Pound the best loss in Town
Brentwood May 22, 2007 – MD VIP Weightloss today unveiled a new nutrition education and obesity initiative designed to empower at risk adults and youth to make informed healthy lifestyle choices.
The MD VIP Weightloss Program emphasizes behavior modification, the importance of regular physical activity and balanced nutrition in achieving and maintaining life-long health. “It is critically important that we work together to help educate patients and promote healthy eating and physical activity as a lifetime habit,” says Dr Dennis. “By addressing nutritional balance and physical activity, we’re taking an integrated approach to helping people help themselves.”
MD VIP Weightloss was developed by Kevin Dennis, MD out of frustration with the current lack of emphasis and support by Health Management Organizations to support physicians in the fight against Obesity. “Obesity is recognized as a disease yet is denied reimbursement be the majority of health insurance carriers.”
MD VIP Weightloss offers medically supervised weight loss programs customized to patient’s individual needs and based upon a comprehensive medical review.
The professional and expert staff gives patients one-on-one attention needed to accomplish specific goals. MD VIP Weightloss centers offer the latest treatments in weight control and Dr Dennis is available to answer any questions or concerns patients may have.
MD VIP Weightloss features monthly seminars, wellness and nutrition coaching, and behavior modification techniques to help families incorporate healthy eating into their daily lives. The program also encourages adolescents and adults to become more physically active by demonstrating that fitness is fun and achievable both in school and at home.
“I want to thank MD VIP Weightloss and Dr Dennis on making a difference in my life by promoting safe and efficient weight loss interventions.” “To combat obesity, we must teach our children the importance of exercise and balanced nutrition” concluded Deb D, who successfully lost over 65 lbs.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. Unhealthy weight trends are even more pronounced among Tennesseans, where nearly 68 percent of the population is overweight or obese.
Many health experts suggest that preventing obesity in childhood and adolescence is the key to reversing the current obesity epidemic. Dr Dennis agrees with this assessment and encourages parents to participate in wellness training as they influence household eating habits much more than a television advertisement.
Since lifelong nutrition and activity patterns are established during childhood, intervention during this time period is crucial to the development of healthy habits. Dr Dennis and MD VIP Weightloss are working with community partners to develop nutrition and obesity education programs that encourage physical activity events in local communities across Middle Tennessee.
MD VIP Weightloss is available at three locations –Brentwood, Nashville, and Hartsville TN.
