The Science of CoolSculpting

Posted on July 11, 2017 by admin

SAN RAMON — CoolSculpting® is one of the most cutting-edge innovations in weight loss. The concept behind CoolSculpting was discovered many years ago when physicians noticed the dimpling effect that occurred as children sucked on popsicles. After further research, the physicians found that this effect was a result of cold temperatures causing lipolysis of the fat cells in the children’s cheeks.

Today, using modern technology, physicians are applying this concept to weight loss by using cold temperatures to eliminate unwanted fat cells in the body. Specifically, CoolSculpting targets areas of the body that are the most resistant to diet and exercise, such as the stomach. Fat cells are frozen by applying the CoolSculpting device to the targeted area. Read more

Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Dr. Michael Temkin:  Today, I really wanted to talk about the importance of your basal metabolic rate in weight loss.

A Critical Factor for Weight Loss

Posted on July 11, 2017 by admin

SAN RAMON – Everyone knows diet and exercise are the cornerstones of weight loss, but many people miss some of the finer points involved. One of these is metabolism, or, more specifically, basal metabolic rate (BMR), which is the rate at which the body burns calories while at rest. BMR is the common denominator in weight loss: If you’re consuming more calories than your BMR, you’re going to gain weight; if you’re consuming less calories than your BMR, you’re going to lose weight.

Due to the impact of BMR on weight loss, it’s important to know yours and adjust your diet accordingly. For example, in order to lose weight at a rate of two to four pounds per week, Read more
