Weight Loss in Tampa, FL

Our goal at Avanti Weight Loss and Wellness is to make residents of the Tampa Bay area, including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Bradenton and Sarasota look and feel their best under the caring supervision of Cindy Martineau, RN.  Cindy has many years of weight loss and wellness counseling and the many loyal patients to prove it.  

Why is weight loss such an integral part of wellness? Listen to what the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have to say about weight;

  • More than one third (35.7%) of the US adults are obese
  • Obesity related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death in the US

That is the tip of the iceberg, over two-thirds of Americans are overweight.  Being overweight or obese has a tremendous impact on your body, including the joint and back pain from carrying weight that these joints were not designed to carry, not to mention stressing the heart and lungs trying to perfuse and oxygenate tissue loads they were not meant to support.  Mentally, this affects one’s quality of life because one cannot do all the things one would like to do, either from breathlessness and joint pain or from actual time lost to taking all kinds of medications and spent in doctor’s offices and hospitals instead of with your loved ones. Often our patients stop requiring  some of their blood pressure medications or diabetic medications just by losing ten pounds!

At your initial consultation you will receive a complete blood work up including Complete Blood Count, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Cholesterol and Lipids Panel.  An electrocardiogram and blood pressure will be performed and you will be measured for your body fat index, body mass index, and given a detailed health and medication history and physical exam.  Your lifestyle and nutrition will be assessed and a diet and exercise program will be designed for you to follow with or without appetite suppressants as per the doctor’s review and recommendations.  You will be given a one month supply of calcium pyruvate to help you metabolise fat, as well as B12 injections twice a week to also help enhance your metabolism.  You will meet with Cindy weekly to assess your progress, troubleshoot and target particular problems.  We also assess hormone levels, such as  thyroid function as indicated by other findings.

Avanti also provides Trim products for regulation of metabolism and immune system as well as a full line of shakes and meal bars to  supplement your diet when your schedule does not permit normal meals.

Don’t wait any longer, let Avanti help you stop missing out on the good things in life!
