Dr. David Gilliam MD

I've been a medical doctor with a medical practice for more than 35 years. I have delivered more than 2,000 babies and I like to say that I take care of people from “cradle to grave.” One of the most common problems I see in my practice and throughout the entire country is weight control and obesity. Obesity in this country is at an all-time high and growing. More than two thirds of all Americans are overweight and more than one third are actually medically defined as obese. That’s over 160 million people that need to lose weight in order to get and stay healthy. It is a nation-wide epidemic.

Obesity has been clinically proven to lead to serious diseases, including:

  • Coronary heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure

  • Type 2 diabetes

  • Cancers, such as endometrial, breast, and colon cancer

  • High total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides

  • Liver and gallbladder disease

More and more people are living unhealthy lives and as a result, becoming ill. In fact, obesity now causes more than half a million cancer cases per year! Obesity also shortens lives: An Oxford University study found that an obese person's life span is three to ten years shorter than that of someone of average weight, about the same loss of life associated with smoking.

Obesity rates have more than doubled in both adults and children since the 1970's, and obesity related diseases are now being found in even very young children. It’s believed that today’s children are the first generation who may not live as long as their parents. This is a monumental problem in our country. Something has to be done and in my opinion, Chew The Fat Off has the answer!

Here are some helpful facts to know for anyone wanting (needing) to lose weight:

  1. It is important not to let our bodies go into what’s called “starvation mode.” This occurs when we don’t eat for long periods of time and our bodies think we’re starving, so they try to hang on to all the fat they can, to keep us alive. This makes getting rid of that fat very difficult. Starvation mode can be avoided simply by changing the way we eat and the choices we make in food consumption. We should be consuming something nutritious at least 5 times a day. That way, our metabolism stays constantly active. When our bodies go into starvation mode, our blood sugar and insulin levels can be out of control, as of course can our hunger. Our appetites can be controlled with frequent smaller meals and nutritious snacks. Eating smaller but more frequent meals and snacks is an important way of not over-eating and of controlling our food cravings. One can make better choices when one is not hungry. How many times have you gone into the store hungry and ended up buying junk food that wasn’t on your grocery list?

  2. Healthy meal replacement shakes that are nutritionally balanced can replace most meals. They will give you a feeling of satiety and fullness. A well balanced meal replacement shake will provide you with the same nutrition that can be obtained from a full meal, but with a lot fewer calories.

  3. Between meals, healthy snacks and weight management supplements can replace cravings for unhealthy choices. It is much easier to make healthier decisions when you are feeling full. Supplements that are the most effective do all of the following:

    • Give you a small amount of highly nutritious calories

    • Suppress your appetite and cravings

    • Boost your metabolism to help you keep burning calories and fat

    • Give you energy to stay active and alert

  4. Exercising regularly is of course, an important aspect of effective weight management. Even just walking can make a huge difference in the amount of calories you burn.

    The bottom line is, if you can consume fewer calories than you burn, you will almost always be able to lose weight. The challenge is to do this without having to suffer through the process. This brings me to Chew The Fat Off (CTFO).

    The CTFO products are not only highly effective, they’re also delicious, which is important if you’re going to keep taking them so they can work for you. Even more importantly, they contain only the highest quality, perfectly balanced ingredients. They use all natural flavorings and absolutely no artificial sweeteners are added. This means you get healthy nutrition and can reduce your caloric intake while feeling completely satisfied.

    I’ve had the opportunity to try the CTFO products with several of my overweight patients. The results have been remarkable. My patients found the products to be convenient, delicious and totally effective in both losing weight and helping to satisfy their hunger cravings.

    Millions of people have tried all kinds of different products and programs to lose weight, and from my observations, most have either not succeeded or have lost weight, only to gain it back again and then some. CTFO really is different.

    I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend the Chew The Fat Off products and program to anyone wishing to lose pounds and inches in a healthy, sustainable way.
