Lynette R. Goode Shares Incredible Weight Loss Story in New Book, “Determined to Live”


RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) November 25, 2014

“If you believe it, you can achieve it.” This mantra lead Lynette R. Goode to shed nearly 200 pounds due to gastric bypass.

Goode encountered multiple complications due to the gastric bypass procedure and was forced to endure more than 48 surgeries to treat compounding medical issues. She offers an inspirational and a chilling account of her story in the newly published memoir, “Determined to Live”.

“I’d decided that I’d had enough,” Goode said. “It was time to take back my life, one step at a time. Once I’d conquered my own demons, it was time to give back to others.”

Goode is now a motivational speaker and the founder of a nonprofit called DEON Intervention Incorporated. A 501(c)(3) dedicated to educating youth on healthy living, proper nutrition and maintaining bodyweight.

“I want to bring awareness to the obesity epidemic impacting our youth and families,” Goode said. “I do not want anyone to go through what I have endured; being obese a majority of my life as a result of not knowing proper nutrition.”

Dieting Without Direction: a Common Mistake Dieters Make. Expert Emphasizes The Importance of Having a Plan When Trying To Lose Weight


Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

Having an actual strategy for losing weight is something commonly overlooked by many dieters says Dr. Myo Nwe, co-founder of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center in South Carolina and co-author of “Fat-Me-Not: Weight Loss Diet of the Future.” Dr. Nwe stresses the necessity of having a plan built around real goals if someone is trying to lose weight. She said simply trying to eat less and exercise more is just dieting in the dark.

According to Dr. Nwe, far too many people approach weight loss with a random, loosely-defined concept of how to proceed. “Eating less and exercising more is something we’ve all heard, but true weight management requires a bit more detail,” Dr. Nwe explains.

Dr. Nwe encourages patients in her practice to follow a more specific plan, one that involves goals and a calendar, and is based in science. “When you follow an unspecified strategy, you’re far less likely to succeed,” Nwe explains. “It’s so much easier to cheat when you haven’t really set any parameters.”

An internal medicine specialist, Dr. Nwe co-created a successful weight loss system built around portion control called the Slimplate System. It utilizes portion plates, bowls, and cups, along with other tools. Together, the system is used as a part of a four-month weight loss program to gradually guide users toward a more proper food intake.

“We specifically designed the Slimplate System to have an accompanying weight loss strategy built around how people eat,” New says. “We wanted a clear, free program. That’s always vital to meeting true weight loss goals.” One can join the free online weight loss program at http://www.slimplatesystem.com/register.

Dr. Nwe takes an all-encompassing approach to weight management with her clients. She says it is important to comprehend both the physiology and psychology involved with weight loss. “People fail in remarkably similar patterns, which they often repeat again and again,” Nwe says. “We blame ourselves, but we forget to ask if we even have the right tools at our disposal.”

Dr. Nwe says the Slimplate System has received high marks from users for the bone china quality, but she believes the greater asset is the progressive, responsive nature of the weight loss strategy. “It’s a program that works with people instead of against their nature,” she explains. “It all goes back to understanding how and why people eat the way they do.”

Diet Doc Announces their Updated and Modern Approach to Weight Loss as an Alternative to Weight Loss Surgery


Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 11, 2014

Those who have struggled unsuccessfully to lose unhealthy and embarrassing excess fat may be considering turning to weight loss surgery as their final attempt for weight loss. While most weight loss surgery patients do, in fact, lose weight, many are not prepared for the physically painful and emotionally exhausting procedure that this surgery requires. Diet Doc cautions dieters to examine all of their options and to be aware of the potential complications, post-surgical requirements and lengthy insurance approval prior to moving forward.


Because weight loss surgery carries a rather hefty price tag, insurance companies tend to be very slow and thorough in their approval process. The companies will take several factors into consideration, including age, health and BMI and oftentimes require documented proof that the patient has exhausted all other weight loss options, including following a qualified weight loss program, such as Diet Doc;
Like any invasive surgery, patients should be aware of the potential risks involved, which can include blood clots, infection, bleeding and, even death;
Dependent on the type of weight loss surgery, patients should anticipate an overnight stay in the hospital;
Patients can expect an extended recuperation period;
Food consumption will typically begin with bite-size pieces, which sometimes must be ground to avoid nausea and vomiting;
Weight loss will not be immediate and can be an extremely slow and difficult road.

Diet Doc, on the other hand, offers their patients a simple, easy to follow and all-inclusive medical weight loss program that works. To get started, potential patients can simply:


Complete a health questionnaire and consult online with a Diet Doc doctor who will review past weight loss attempts and assess the entire system to identify internal imbalances, cellular toxicity or sluggish organs to uncover and attack the real reason for weight gain;
While all patients will receive custom diet plans, many will qualify for pure prescription hormone treatments, exclusive diet pills and proprietary appetite suppressants that signal the brain to attack stored fat by releasing it into the bloodstream, converting it as the body’s primary energy source. This powerful blend also alleviates between meal hunger, food cravings and loss of energy during dieting, the three major reasons why dieters find diet plans difficult to stick to.
New patients will work closely with certified nutritionists who will uniquely design meal and snack plans that are specific to food preferences, nutritional and lifestyle needs and compatible with almost any medical condition;
Weekly checkup calls are scheduled to monitor weight loss progress, as well as to assess comfort level and attitude. This close, personal attention enables patients to avoid weight loss plateaus and allows the doctor to quickly modify the diet plans to reset the metabolism and return the body to fast burn mode;
Unlimited access to Diet Doc’s team of specially trained fast weight loss doctors, nurses, nutritionists and coaches, all committed to supporting, encouraging and guiding each patient toward successful and long term weight loss.

Diet Doc’s medical weight loss programs have tortured many bariatric surgeons. In fact, a California-based panel of bariatric surgeons refuse to refer their potential surgical patients to Diet Doc because the program works! An overwhelming majority of patients that turned to Diet Doc as their final option avoided going under the knife by reaching their weight loss goals naturally, safely and rapidly.

This modern approach to fast weight loss has helped thousands of weight loss surgery candidates avoid the potential risks and side effects of expensive weight loss surgery. Diet Doc urges those of all shapes and sizes, who have been unsuccessful in the past, to call today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.

About the Company:

Diet Doc Weight Loss is the nation’s leader in medical, weight loss offering a full line of prescription medication, doctor, nurse and nutritional coaching support. For over a decade, Diet Doc has produced a sophisticated, doctor designed weight loss program that addresses each individual specific health need to promote fast, safe and long term weight loss.
