We see far too many people suffering from knee pain due to extra weight. If you lose 10 pounds that is equal to 40 pounds of pressure removed off of your knees, which makes a world of difference if you have achy, stiff knees. Now we do treat lots of knees at Penrose Physical Therapy in Lacey, and many times physical therapy is the answer. However, we do see many that would benefit from eating an anti-inflammatory diet and staying in a fat burning mode.

Weight loss is not magic; it is science but every body can be unique and there is some art to figuring out your body. And unfortunately, there have been some awful scams and quick schemes that only result in people gaining the weight back. I finally found a solid program that works. We coached a group of 25 this past winter and the results by in large were great! We had many people lose 5-10 inches (1 inch off the belly/waist equals 1% of fat loss). This program focuses on fat loss and not just weight as we don’t want to lose muscle. And most importantly people felt better and reported less ache in their joints and improved energy. I have checked in with many of them 5 months later and many were still following the life style principles and still losing weight. The common thing I kept hearing was “I am just so glad that I feel so much better.” It is amazing that when you really start eating right how the inflammation goes down everywhere and you have better energy. My husband figured out by eating this way he eliminated the afternoon lethargic feeling due to cutting out pastas and breads. When he re-introduced it, he felt very tired.  He also noticed decreased swelling.  So now he can make better choices and avoid those foods. If your knees ache from inflammation or due to the pressure of increased weight then joining our 8 week weight loss program in September is for you.

In fact, I created a free seven-page report, “7 Best Tips to Become a Fat Burning Machine,” that can help you get a jump start on how to stay in fat burning mode. If you want to get started on some effective strategies to burn fat then call 360.456.1444 or email us info@penrosept.com for your copy.

No, this is not some quick diet that will cause you to gain it all back in six months. As a health care provider, I am for a reasonable eating plan that is supported by nutritionists. This eight-week plan is all about eating lean proteins & veggies that promote overall health: stabilizing blood glucose, improving cholesterols, protecting from heart disease, and limiting systemic inflammation. This way of eating improves our gut health. In fact, our gut health is strongly correlated to our overall systemic inflammation. I don’t even want to call this plan a diet. Really, it is an eight-week program to turn you into a fat-burning machine! Can I get an “Amen”? Learn how to burn more fat and the science behind metabolism; enjoy wonderful food; get on a path for longevity, more energy, and less systemic inflammation. Yes!

The menu plan is delicious and inspiring; it may show you how to really enjoy those wonderful vegetables. That was one of my favorite things about this program. I learned great recipes and alternatives to things I loved but needed to replace. For instance, I love pancakes! However, the carbs and sugars are too high, so I learned a new recipe: 1 banana, 2 eggs and a ¼ tsp of baking powder.  That is for 1 person/1 serving. You must spray your nonstick pan with coconut oil and cook slowly or it will be a sticky mess – trust me. And then I used blue berries mashed up to put on top. They were delicious AND healthy. I knew that I had to find healthier ways of cooking that tasted delicious. Food is to be enjoyed and can’t be about deprivation or no one will stick to it.  I kept thinking “this is not a good time” and “I’m too busy.” There is never a good time. I have three boys, a business, a spouse and a very full and active life. If I can do this, you can do this.

The eight-week program starting in mid-September is designed around your level of motivation and the results that you want. There will be weekly zoom coaching calls, online tools, menu plans, step-by-step instructions on what to do, and guidance for exercise routines. You will get free weekly group zoom coaching calls, weekly check-ins, and a variety of exercise videos to choose from, a private Facebook group to share recipes and learn great areas to shop and find delicious ingredients and ask questions etc.
