Orangetheory Fitness to Celebrate Their Tenth Dallas-Fort Worth Location

Dallas, TX, April 30, 2015 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Today, Orangetheory Fitness-North Texas announced that the tenth location in DFW will open in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, TX in mid-May at the new Preston Hollow Village development. This high-intensity interval training fitness company opened its first North Texas “pilot” locations in April 2014 in Plano, followed by Frisco and Allen. Other locations in the area include Addison, Coppell, Colleyville, Preston-Frankford and Mesquite. Future locations will include studios in Castle Hills-Lewisville, McKinney, Southlake, Keller and more. The projected opening dates of these locations will be released in the near future.

Orangetheory Fitness is passionate about being involved in each of their communities by supporting other local businesses, non-profit organizations, school districts, and the Chambers of Commerce. Not only does this company bring a cutting-edge, technology driven, health-focused fitness program to these areas, it also provides employment to those within the community. Job-seekers will benefit from the employment opportunities that become available as Orangetheory Fitness continues expanding throughout North Texas.

About Orangetheory Fitness: Orangetheory Fitness, an energizing group interval fitness concept, is sweeping the nation! This one-of-a-kind workout is broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training in which certified trainers instruct the class using a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, SBT suspension training™ and free weights. With constant variation in workouts and motivation from our inspiring trainers, participants complete the class feeling energized and accomplished.

Orangetheory Fitness has been featured in The New York Times as an effective new plateau-busting workout in which participants can burn up to 900 calories in a 60-minute session. Backed by the science of post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), our heart-rate monitored training (OTBeat) is designed to help participants keep heart rates in a target “orange zone” that stimulates metabolism and increases energy in order to achieve noticeable, lasting results.

OTBeat is a heart rate monitoring program specifically designed for group training. Each participant wears a transmitter pod that displays their heart rate and percentage of max on a large monitor in the studio. Clients will know exactly what their heart rate is throughout the workout by simply glancing at the monitor. After each workout, participants are able to break down the results of their workout and visualize their progress.

The result is the Orange Effect – more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours after your workout.

Garcinia Cambogia, is a fruit commonly grows in south Asia. This fruit has been used for different health purposes for several years. This made Doctors and other health researchers to waste their efforts and reveal the health beneficial properties of this natural product. It has been long recommending different natural alternatives for weight loss.

Irregular eating habits may cause lots of health problems, one common problem is obesity. Every 8 out of 10 people get unwanted increase in body weight due to overeating. Health specialists have linked the overeating habit with some psychological issues. People in bad mood commonly eat more. This occurs due to the low level of serotonin, which is a hormone responsible for mood swings. Food is one way to trigger the release of serotonin and enhance the mood, but this emotional overeating leads to obesity. Researchers have been working to find out the weight loss properties of natural products. They found that Garcinia Cambogia triggers the release of serotonin, enhances the mood and keeps emotional over eaters away from consuming more food.

Dr. Julie Chen explained the way Garcinia Cambogia Extracts works. The dual action formula fights against the fat by blocking the fat cells formation and suppressing the bad appetite for food. HCA (Hydroxycitric acid) is the compound which makes this natural product highly effective against excess fat. As the main ingredient of Garcinia Cambogia, HCA changes the way liver converts sugar into fat. It makes the liver convert sugar directly into energy rather than converting it into fat. In this way, it blocks the fat formation process in the body. The excess fat stored in the
body is burned effectively by supercharging the metabolic activity. By suppressing appetite, it eliminates all bad food cravings and develops a healthy eating habit.

Using Psychology to Lose Weight – Because Dieting and Exercise Alone Don’t Work

MariasLastDiet.com, the website for women who want to lose weight, issued a  white paper today about using psychology to lose weight. The author, Kenneth Schwarz PhD, a psychologist and psychoanalyst and co-founder of MariasLastDiet.com, wrote the paper because of the continuing high rate of weight-loss failure with the current standard formula, Diet + Exercise = Weight Loss.

Dr. Schwarz argues the case for using psychology to lose weight by amending the formula to read, Weight Loss = Dieting + Exercise + Using Psychology, where using psychology is really two factors, adherence and personal change.

Adherence, which research shows is the single-best determiner of weight loss, is sticking to it—the diet or weight-loss program. Adherence is not only sticking to your food plan, though, it is also sticking to what will help you make the necessary personal changes.

Losing weight, especially for women, is never just about the food. It is always about a woman’s psychology as well. Personal change has to do with altering old patterns of behavior and replacing these patterns with new behaviors that are more conducive to successful weight loss.

Dieting and weight loss as they are currently practiced require a lot of self-control and willpower. The use of so much willpower and self-control makes the weight-loss process terribly arduous and ripe for failure. To address this, Dr. Schwarz added another goal to the primary goal of losing unwanted weight, that of using the least possible amount of self-control and willpower to effect change.

Once the goal of making the weight-loss process much less dependent on willpower and self-control is set, what remains is to show how to implement this goal. Dr. Schwarz takes traditional weight-loss issues and, using the principles and practices of psychology, illustrates how to successfully resolve these issues more automatically, and without the need for such self-defeating effort.

Using Psychology to Lose Weight

Dr. Kenneth Schwarz, co-author of the series, Weight-Loss Books for Women — Using Psychology to Lose Weight, will appear on The Mary Jones Show on Monday, August 20, 2012. The show is from noon to 2 p.m., and can be heard on WDRC-AM 1360 Hartford, WSNG-AM 610 Torrington, WMMW-AM 1470 Meriden, and WWCO-AM 1240 Waterbury.

Dr. Schwarz will be interviewed by Mary Jones about the 7 self-help, how-to books that he wrote with his wife, the writer Julie North Schwarz. The books are all about using psychology to lose weight. This  Symmetry Press series of books shows that psychology is what is missing from the usual formula, weight loss = dieting + exercise. The missing psychology, according to Dr. Schwarz, has to do with adherence and personal change. In other words, if you don’t stick to it, it won’t work; and in order to accomplish permanent weight loss, you have to change your old ways and develop new ways.

The Using Psychology to Lose Weight series illustrates how to use psychology to lose weight by taking traditional weight-loss issues and showing women how to use psychology to maneuver through them.

The first book in the series is a novel of passionate weight loss. It is called Breaking Up With Food: Maria’s Last Diet. It delivers its self-help by taking the reader deep into a woman’s psychology.

The 3-volumes of Psych Your Diet: A Daily Dose are handy advice manuals to use for each phase of the weight-loss process. They show a woman how to make the personal changes needed for each weight-loss phase.

Volume 1. Psych Yourself to Start supplies what you need to get going—inspiration, understanding, and how-to’s.

Volume 2. Psych Yourself to Stick to It gives you ideas, strategies, encouragement, and more so you can do what it takes to adhere to your weight-loss regimen—all the way to goal.

Volume 3. Psych Yourself to Keep It Off helps you see what you have to do to maintain your lost weight, and it explains how to go about doing it.

Stop Your Emotional Eating lays the groundwork for seeing emotional eating for what it is. It gives a compendium of emotional eating ideas, ways to think more fully and clearly about emotional eating. Stop Your Emotional Eating, of course, also tells how to stop your emotional eating, with strategies to use for all the different aspects of emotional eating.

To solve the problems that wreck a woman’s weight-loss attempts, there is Diet Tuffy: The Fun Way to Seriously Lose Weight. This workbook helps you target your toughest dieting and weight loss problem, come up with a brand new solution, and make an ingenious plan to put the new solution into action. With Diet Tuffy, a woman can square off against lack of willpower, low self-confidence, feeling deprived, too much stress, and any other weight-loss foe.

The most recent book in the series is How to Break the First Big Rule of Women Who Stay Fat. This book is a personal guide to breaking one of the rules in a woman’s life that has been working to keep her fat. With the help of the strategies in this book a woman will be able to break the first big rule and handle those moments when she feels all her power slip away and she plunges right into food.

Dr. Schwarz will be available after his interview on The Mary Jones Show to answer questions at hi@mariaslastdiet.com. More on using psychology to lose weight can be found on Dr. Schwarz’s blogsite  www.mariaslastdiet.com.

Just take a look at the statistics — 62% of women in the U.S. age 20 to 74 are overweight or obese. But on any given day 45% of women in the U.S. are trying to lose weight. Real weight-loss isn’t happening.

Using psychology to lose weight means getting yourself to do what it takes to lose your unwanted weight: Getting yourself to START, STICK TO IT, and then KEEP IT OFF for good.

Smoking, Obesity And Lack Of Activity Named As Global Killers

Research published in leading medical journal The Lancet suggests that a lack of exercise can be as big a killer as obesity and smoking.

According to the study, approximately one third of adults do not do a healthy amount of exercise, and it is suggested that this could be causing 5.3 million deaths worldwide each year – the equivalent of one in ten deaths – from related illnesses such as breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Nutritionist Caron Leckie, who works for the UK’s largest provider of chef prepared meals and delivered diets, Diet Chef, comments: “In my experience the weather has a big impact on activity levels, certainly in the UK, and many people use it as an excuse to stay indoors and watch television, rather than getting out and about.

“In addition to this, thousands of our customers have jobs which see them sitting down at a desk for up to nine hours each day. It is logical that this sedentary lifestyle can be conducive to obesity.”

Ms Leckie also added that Diet Chef is “working hard to help people to lose weight with our calorie-controlled diet” and that as a company they are also “working closely with a personal trainer to offer advice and tips on how to move more, no matter what your age, weight or health status.”

It is recommended that adults should do a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week, this equates to just over 20 minutes per day.

According to a report by the BBC, “researchers said the problem was now so bad it should be treated as a pandemic”.

Ms Leckie’s top tips for motivation to exercise include:
1. Add An Activity
2. Try Something Different
3. Find a Positive Each Week
4. Take up a Hobby

1 800-GET-THIN Says New “Whistle Blower” Lawsuit A Fantasy And Sham

1 800 GET THIN has called a lawsuit filed against it a fantasy and lacking in credibility. The lawsuit, Meyle v. 1 800 GET THIN, was filed in LA Superior Court (BC486169) on Thursday, and charges that San Diego Ambulatory Surgery Center failed to properly sterilize its instruments on December 30 and 31 of 2011. However, Konrad Trope, the attorney for the surgery enter, said that Jessica Meyle, the plaintiff, sent an email on January 5, 2012 which acknowledged the instruments were, in fact, properly sterilized. The email from Jessica Meyle said: “…it [the sterilizer] passed!!!!:):):) Mejid is looking at the autoclave now. He says the problem may have been that we removed the Bowie Dicks too quickly. He recommends to crack the door & leave the tests in the autoclave for 20 minutes. Thank you, Jessica”.

Trope stated “this email conclusively proves that the plaintiffs filed a false claim with the court knowing full well that the sterilizer worked.” Trope added that “it is improper that the plaintiffs’ attorneys Alexander Robertson and John Walker filed this lawsuit without doing an appropriate investigation of this false allegation as required by law.”

Trope further stated that “the plaintiffs and their attorneys are looking for a fast buck with false allegations.”

1 800 GET THIN is a marketing firm and does not perform medical procedures. The plaintiffs’ attorneys Robertson and Walker recently dismissed 1 800 GET THIN from their prior “whistleblower” lawsuit. 1 800 GET THIN will challenge this lawsuit as well. Trope added that “the plaintiffs and their attorneys have gone ahead and filed false claims which will inevitably result in their suit being dismissed with the strong likelihood that they will face a lawsuit for malicious prosecution.”

Trope has challenged the plaintiffs to explain the contradiction between their claims, the emails, and the written records. The record of quality medical care and safety in San Diego Ambulatory Surgery Center is excellent.

Trope says he is deeply concerned about Jessica Meyle’s criminal history and credibility. “She has a conviction for Retail Theft in Pennsylvania in the case of Commonwealth v. Jessica Gordon (her maiden name), in case number CP-23-CR-0007812-2006.”

Forza To Build New Factory In Kent

Forza has announced that plans have been drawn up for the building of a new factory in Kent.

The factory will be using the latest technology and machinery to ensure consistency within the manufacturing processes of Forza’s health supplement products, including slimming pills. All of the company’s ingredients are blended for over 24 hours to ensure that each and every capsule is identical. More of Forza’s products will have branded capsules so that the customer understands that from purchase to consumption, Forza is looking out for them.

Matt Morgan CEO, Forza Group Ltd, said: “Forza is delighted to announce that we will open a new cutting-edge facility in Kent. All of our products are made to GMP standards and our customers can continue to expect the very best weight loss and wellbeing products from Forza. As one of the fastest-growing health supplement companies in the UK, this news is further evidence of our continuing success.”

Kent was an obvious choice for the company when deciding on the location for the new factory due to it being a transport hub. Forza has a growing customer base in Germany and being close to the ports means that its deliveries can arrive faster than if they were dispatched from any other part of the country. In addition, Forza’s directors have been able to make much better use of the Eurostar and Le Shuttle services for meetings in northern Europe, allowing the brand to expand into new markets.

The factory is the latest investment Forza has made into its services and follows the opening of a new Fulfilment Centre in Ashford, Kent. The Centre operates solely to distribute Forza products to retail and trade customers in the UK and Europe. With this new facility the company is able to handle the growing number of packages that are being dispatched daily. From its old Fulfilment office, it could handle 350 packages a day but now that Forza sell trade packs and the retail demand has increased the company is committed to continuous reinvesting in its infrastructure.

These are handy advice manuals for women to use every day. The books are designed to be read one piece at a time, one a day. Each selection gives an effective dose of daily knowhow, encouragement, and inspiration.

The research shows it is staying on a diet (adherence) and not the particular diet that makes for successful weight loss. 1,2,3 Women who want to lose weight need good information and help with adhering, just like they now have with knowing what to eat. Judging by the statistics, the old formula [diet + exercise = weight loss] is not helping women to adhere. On any given day 45% of women are dieting, but 62% of women from 20 to 74 are still overweight.

Breaking Up With Food: Maria’s Last Diet is a novel of passionate weight loss.

The Exercise Myths

There are still many popular misconceptions about how to lose weight or tone up stomachs, bottoms and thighs – with exercise routines left over from the days of ‘go for the burn’ aerobics and Jane Fonda-style videos.

Sit-ups have traditionally been thought of the best way to tone stomach muscles – but this might not be the case. Firstly, lots of sit-ups or crunches alone won’t tone a flabby belly – you need to combine any exercise with other exercises as well as eating a balanced diet. Sit-ups also target the most superficial ‘six-pack’ core muscles, but too many of these will cause the tummy to bulge out, leading to a pot belly.

Those trying to lose weight often believe that exercising for longer periods of time will lead to increased weight loss. But exercising hard for a long time will produce excessive amounts of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, which begin to break down muscle tissue.

High-intensity exercise is good for heart health, but not effective for fat loss. Studies have shown the best way to burn fat is by carrying out moderate to light-intensity exercise, such as a brisk walk.

Those who are finding it hard to shift stubborn fat, should come for a consultation with an expert surgeon at The Hospital Group.

The Hospital Group offer a range of cosmetic procedures to help people achieve the perfect body, including tummy tucks and liposuction, as well as weight loss surgery, including gastric bypasses, balloons and bands.

David Ross, Chief executive of The Hospital Group, which has 19 clinics across the UK said: “People who come for a consultation have often been trying to beat the bulge through various diets and exercise regimes for years, but many do not have access to knowledge to make a lasting difference.

Overweight Struggle With Weight Loss Because Of Heightened Sense Of Smell

New research has found that some overweight people have a greater sense of smell for food which may cause them to struggle with diets and weight loss.

Carried out by the University of Portsmouth , the study found that those who were overweight, or had a high BMI, had a far heightened sense of smell for food compared with slim people.

Volunteers took part in the study where they were asked to join in with a series of mini experiments that tested their smelling ability.

The results revealed that most people are better at detecting food odours just after they had eaten rather than when they were hungry with experts citing this as one of the reasons many people continue eating long after they are full up.

Scientists believe this new research could help explain why some people struggle to stay slim or stick to a strict diet.

Lead researcher Dr Stafford, said: “It could be speculated that for those with a propensity to gain weight, their higher sense of smell for food related odours might actually play a more active role in food intake.

“Hopefully this research will stimulate more work in this area with the potential to help those who struggle with their weight and those who treat people with weight problems.”

Those who are worried about being overweight should book a consultation with an expert bariatric surgeon at The Hospital Group.

The Hospital Group is the UK ‘s biggest provider of weight loss surgery, including gastric bands, gastric bypasses and gastric balloons.

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group said: “Many overweight people struggle with their food intake and often find themselves in a vicious cycle of over eating.
