Our company focuses and pays great attention to combating obesity, since it is a disease which increases morbid- ity and mortality of people but is also a burden for Greek Health System! Through the integrated program of Cambridge we offer a quick weight loss, which might be necessary and salutary in some cases of patients, but also weight stabilization and maintenance, which help us to solve the obe- sity problem once and for all!
Our effort could not be safe and suc- cessful without the participation of the medical community, as each of the cases we face is unique and has its own needs as a different medical history.
The roots of the program Cambridge Weight Plan are starting from Dr. Alan Howard, who was a Professor of Cambridge University. He dedicated his re- search work in creating the "perfect diet" with basic motivation to fight obesity in a safe and painless way.
His goal was to help obese patients to weaken without jeopardizing their health. Thus, the research team has achieved a golden balance in formulas created, which is 41% carbohydrates, 40% proteins and 17% fats. These formulas are developed and researched extensively for 25 years (application in clinical obese people under the supervision of physicians) and eventually massively released in the 80s in the US and later in England. At this time, inves- tigations were made on various cases of diseases shown to be affected by obesity e.g. (osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, diabetes), which showed that the use of diet in obese individuals suffering from these diseases, improves their health to a point some of them to return to a normal mode!
In Greece the Type 2 diabetes occurs as an epidemic because of obesity and lack of physical activity, with significant economic impact on society and health systems. In 2010 took place in Asia (Malaysia National Institute of Diabetes) a survey of obese people who had type 2 diabetes and the effect of a very low calorie diet as Cambridge Weight Plan is. It is really a fact that significant energy intake reduction can reduce the body weight, fat, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular risk factors in a very short time. Immediate loss of weight (15kg) and maintained by the use of a balanced program Cambridge Weight Plan and the simultaneous monitoring of the patient's family doctor and the company physician can dramatically alter the course of disease. In many cases the patients were able to re- duce the anti-diabetic therapy and many of them returned to normal blood sugar levels! The conclusion of the research was that the weight loss programs by Cambridge allow a quick but healthy body fat loss, thus directly improve the metabolism and the psy- chological state of the patient and therefore to reduce the cost of drugs and the social costs of healthcare dia- betics.
Cambridge also provides a set of stabilization and maintenance programs of the new weight, so diabetic pa- tients to maintain their new weight and be educated in a balanced diet based on the food pyramid.
Specialized programs of Cambridge Weight Plan offer a quick loss of body fat in a healthy way, as the body gets the daily 100% of the nutrients that it needs for its functions, so there is no feeling of hunger, fatigue and exhaustion! At the same time we focus on the process of stabilization and maintenance, in which the customer learns to eat healthily and from all food groups, with continuous monitoring and support from the consultant's diet. This way we manage to preserve the results for life and contribute to the improvement of the Greek Health System!
