A note of caution, liposuction is not a cure for generalized obesity.

Liposuction is not as easy as just going torepparttar 135129 doctor and telling him or her, "I want a liposuction right now." People who want to have liposuction must meet certain criteria:

1) There should be a preliminary consultation. This includes history ofrepparttar 135130 patient, a comprehensive physical examination, and a psychological health examination;

2) There should be a second consultation to give time forrepparttar 135131 patient to think overrepparttar 135132 planned liposuction surgery;

3) Ifrepparttar 135133 patient is married,repparttar 135134 spouse's presence may be required duringrepparttar 135135 consultation;

4) The patient should ask questions about liposuction, expressrepparttar 135136 reasons forrepparttar 135137 consultation, and must feel satisfied withrepparttar 135138 answers to their questions;

How I Easily Lost 21 lbs. in Just Weeks- Without Getting Hungry!

"When I stepped onrepparttar scale, I started to cry..."

For this 56-year-old grandmother, every weight loss plan had failed. Now- finally- she reveals her 10 simple steps for weight loss success… ___________________________________

I was shocked. I started to cry...

Afterrepparttar 135027 holidays, I stepped onrepparttar 135028 scale and discovered I was 30 pounds heavier than I had ever been in my life.

I’m a 56 year old grandmother (somebody please tell me how that happened) and it occurred to me that this time, I might not be able to lose those extra pounds.

Luckily, my health is good. I decided to do a little research intorepparttar 135029 problems and causes of obesity.

While searching for information on weight loss surgery, I happened on a study from Japan on apple polyphenols. It said that animals given these apple phytochemicals lost almost 30% of their organ fat after only three weeks. In addition, these lab rats also increased muscle strength.

“Wow,” I said to myself. I wondered if it might work for me too. It occurred to me thatrepparttar 135030 apple chemicals might be “rejuvenating”repparttar 135031 lab animals, since organ fat increases with age. Other studies said these polyphenols were very safe. So I went torepparttar 135032 health food store.

“Apple polly what?” saidrepparttar 135033 sales clerk. I knew I had to look elsewhere. Finally, I found a web site that had it for sale. I started taking it every morning.

Immediately, I felt a new surge of energy and clarity of thought. So far, so good!

Then, I set about changing a few ofrepparttar 135034 items in my diet.

First, I cut out refined sugar, and substituted diet colas and sugar-free candy to satisfy my sweet tooth. (There really have been some great improvements inrepparttar 135035 taste of sugar-free choices inrepparttar 135036 last few years. My favorites are diet Mug root beer, and Russell Stover sugar-free candies.)

I also added 5HTP to my daily supplement regimen, to help curb my carb cravings.

I stopped cooking with unsaturated oils, and switched to virgin olive oil. I limited my carb intake to ½ cup per meal, while keeping my body satisfied with plenty of beef, turkey, chicken, fish and cheese.

I ate as much as I cared to of protein, wholesome fats and unrefined carbohydrates, and gradually felt my body align to a healthier balance. Then, I began to slowly make my portions just a little smaller, one teaspoon at a time. I hardly noticedrepparttar 135037 difference!
