NO DIETING HEALTHY LOW GLYCEMIC IMPACT EATING
Conventional weight loss programs and diets starve the body, and a starved body converts muscle into energy and keeps the fat. That is a problem because muscle is metabolically active and fat is not. Every time you go on a diet and lose muscle, it will slow down your metabolism anywhere from 10%-15%. Unfortunately, those yo-yo diets are not the only problem that keeps your body from losing weight and fat and raking havoc on your metabolism. Other factors like not having enough time to exercise, eating larger portion sizes than your body needs, being under constant stress, and eating unhealthy foods, also contributes to your weight problem. Most people are over fed and under nourished, no wonder we require more food to become full. Portion sizes are triple what they should be, and the more you eat the more you need, but by working to rebalance and improve your metabolism, your need for over eating can diminish. You will eat to fuel your body and not feel hungry or deprived, and have the energy to get some exercise in.
Low Glycemic Impact Eating focuses on the quality and quantity of food. It is superior for weight loss and weight management. It has decades of research to support it and ensure you lose fat, not muscle or water weight. By not restricting food groups, and eating more of the right food you will find that you will have more energy while losing weight, fat, and inches. By focusing on the quality and quantity of foods you will never feel deprived or feel like you’re stuck eating the same boring tasteless foods day after day. With Laser Wellness Weight Loss Program, it is NOT what you CANNOT EAT, but WHAT YOU CAN EAT.

LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY
Anne Penman Laser Therapy treatment is safe, non-invasive, drug-free and painless. It involves the application of a cold, soft laser beam that targets specific energy points located on the hands, ears, nose, wrists, arms, legs and feet.
This will help stimulate the release of endorphins, our own natural body chemical, which helps with the relief of pain and stress. The laser treatment will put you back in control, help suppress your appetite, help you deal with food cravings, and help make you less obsessed with food. We will help you set realistic goals and plan for your new lifestyle.
Laser treatment can help reduce cravings, stress and help restore balance.
Acupuncture treatment has been increasing in popularity but systematic reviews on its effectiveness of weight management intervention are inconclusive. The validity of using minimal acupuncture or placebo needle as an inert placebo control has been questioned. While acupuncture is very low risk when properly performed by well-trained acupuncturists, there are some adverse events resulting from acupuncture which are also a concern.
Laser Acupuncture is an intervention that stimulates traditional acupoints using low-level laser therapy (LLLT). Compared to traditional manual acupuncture, LLLT has multiple advantages, including ease of application, dose measurement precision, painlessness, and noninvasiveness. It is also quick, safe, and inexpensive and carries no risk of infection.
Effect of Laser Acupuncture on Anthropometric Measurements and Appetite Sensations in Obese Subjects
A patient-assessor-blinded, randomized, sham-controlled crossover trial was performed to investigate the effectiveness of laser acupuncture on anthropometric measurements and appetite sensation in obese subjects. Methods. Fifty-two obese subjects were randomly assigned to either the laser acupuncture group or the sham laser acupuncture group. Subjects within each group received the relevant treatment three times a week for 8 weeks. After a two-week washout period, the subjects then received the treatment of the opposite group for another 8 weeks. BMI, body fat percentage, waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), waist circumference, hip circumference, and appetite sensations were measured before and after 8 weeks of treatment. Results. BMI, body fat percentage, WHR, waist circumference, and hip circumference decreased significantly () in the laser acupuncture group compared to baseline but there was no decrease in those variables in the sham laser acupuncture group. Laser acupuncture significantly improved scores on the fullness, hunger, satiety, desire to eat, and overall well-being relative to the baseline. Conclusions. Laser acupuncture is well tolerated and improves anthropometric measurements and appetite sensations in obese subjects. SEE FULL REPORT
