When it comes to health and
fitness, everybody has a different set of challenges. At Vibrant Life we meet
people where they are at with programs that address their specific needs. We
assess all of the issues patients are facing and then put together our programs
We help people to attain the levels
of health that they’ve been dreaming of. Bob lost a lot of weight and he’s
continuing to work toward his fitness goals. He recently appeared on a Life in
Balance segment with me on First Coast Living.
“I had a co-worker who told me that
NutriMost really worked for him,” Bob said. “I was an electronics technician in
the Navy. When I checked into NutriMost and I heard about the resonant
frequencies used in the program, that appealed to my technical background. The
personal contact in the program is one of the keys. Checking in every day helped me to stay accountable.
“Dr. Thomas is an amazing
encourager. His responses always encouraged me to stick with it. I’m trying to
get back to the same weight I was when I retired from the Navy over 20 years
ago. I lost 40 pounds in 40 days while I was on NutriMost. My total weight loss
so far is 56 pounds, and my goal is to lose a total of 80 pounds. My wife is
very happy, and several of my co-workers are now looking to start on the
15 patients have lost 580 pounds in
20 to 40 days on NutriMost in the past few months.
The NutriMost program shows people
why they’ve been having trouble transforming their bodies the way they want to.
As people go through the program they realize that wellness is so much more
than a number on a scale.
Obesity is a very serious problem
and health experts are now predicting that we’re going to see shorter life
spans because of it. We’ve got to make changes. NutriMost educates patients
about the changes they need to make and then enables and empowers them to make
We partner with our patients and
walk through this process with them. At the end of 20 days or 40 days, people
are lighter and many are off some, or all, of their medications. Just as
importantly, they have the strategies and the tools they need to continue
toward their wellness objectives.
One thing I hear over and over from
patients like Bob is that the personal contact has an enormous impact on how
they do with the program. They know that when they face a particular challenge,
they can get an answer very quickly. Not in a day, or two, or in four hours.
They can frequently get an answer to their questions in less than an hour.
I believe that keeping in close
touch with patients communicates to them that I care about how they’re doing.
Patients find that highly motivating. I’m very motivated by seeing patients
succeed. That’s truly a win-win!
By the time people finish a cycle
on NutriMost, they have the knowledge and the tools they need moving forward.
They also know that there’s a place they can always go back to for answers to
any questions they may have.
Life in Balance Tip: Do the right
types of diet and exercise for your body type.
Wondering what kind of exercise to
do? Although many people don’t realize it, different activities work better for
different body types. Think about that. An exercise program that works well for
one person might not work for someone with a different body type. There are
mainly three body types: Ectomorph, Endomorph, and Mesomorph.
have a fast metabolism and they have trouble gaining muscle mass. Since one of
the goals of an ectomorph should be to gain weight, bodybuilding for
ectomorphs should address that need. Cardio exercises which burn calories
should be kept to a minimum. Ectomorph should consume lots of calories from
complex carbohydrates. This will help them with anabolic weight gain.
Endomorphs are the
opposite of ectomorphs. Endomorphs have slower metabolisms which store extra
calories. Endomorphs gain weight easily and they struggle to lose body fat. The
main goal for endomorphs is to burn body fat. Exercises for endomorphs should
include several cardio sessions each week. Weight training should be done at a
fast pace with lots of repetitions. Diet is especially important for
endomorphs. In order to lose weight, they must burn more calories each day than
they consume. The best diets for endomorphs are high in protein and moderate in
fat and complex carbohydrates. They should avoid snacks.
have a genetic advantage which helps them to build lean muscle mass. Mesomorphs
frequently look athletic without really training. They benefit from nearly any
training regimen. Mesomorphs do well with alternating exercise programs.
Three keys to exercise that
produces positive results.

Never lose sight of your goals. The brain
works best when it is focused on a specific target. The more focused a person
is, the more likely he or she is to succeed. Take time to identify exactly what
your objectives are. Do you want to gain muscle, to lose body fat or both? Identifying your fitness
destination is a big step toward getting there.
Balance diet with exercise. Whether
your goal is to add muscle or burn fat, exercise and diet work best together. A
low-calorie diet will help you to lose body fat, but it won’t help you to build
muscle mass. To achieve your goals, you need a diet which complements your
Customize your exercise program. Whether
your wellness goals include burning fat or building muscle, make adjustments to
your diet and exercise program. As you find what works for you and what
doesn’t, make adjustments to your diet and exercise. Tweaking things once in a
while will help you to develop an integrated program which will help you to
achieve your objectives.
