“One of the most important things to reduce in our diets is saturated fat,” says Dr. Sasson Moulavi, M.D., Medical Director for “Smart for Life,”
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) April 19, 2010
In a retrospective chart review study conducted on 46 subjects who visited the Boca Raton Smart for Life® Weight Management Center and used a portion-controlled, protein-rich, low fat cookie with unique fiber technology, all subjects lost weight with the average being 13.1 pounds in 35 days. Five subjects lost over 20 pounds in 35 days and 20 subjects lost over 15 pounds in the first 35 days. The 46 participants lost a total of 601 pounds with one patient losing 38.7 pounds in 35 days.
This study is very significant because a loss of 5-10% has shown clinical improvement in people’s health which is far greater than the amount of weight they lost.
The average client’s Body Mass Index (BMI) dropped by 2.5 points from 31.5 to 29. Most people dropped more than 5% of their body weight and many lost 10%. “This is clinically significant because we know the health benefits from 5% to 10% weight loss are huge. When individuals can achieve these results in a short 5 to 6 weeks with relative ease, I see this as a great way for people to start on a path to a healthier lifestyle,” says Dr. Sasson Moulavi, M.D. who conducted the study.
Subjects were instructed to eat 6 Smart for Life® Diet Cookies (or Smart cupcakes, bagel chips, shakes, soups, crunch, cereals and more that are the equivalent of a cookie) specifically designed to suppress hunger and made with specific protein and HeroFiberTM. Each day, subjects drank at least 64 ounces of water and ate 6-12 ounces of lean protein with 5 servings of vegetables. All clients were seen by a diet physician before starting, and then weighed weekly with a choice to check in with a counselor or physician.
The Smart for Life® Cookie Diet has seen huge success with more and more people trying it every day. The company understands the study’s importance in that it clinically documents what clients achieve each day.
“This study proves what our clients already know – the weight loss is achievable. We have proven that our program is easy and provides quick, safe weight loss. I believe we are the only one of the “cookie diets” that has released such a study. We always knew we have the best products and this study goes a long way to support our thinking. We offer the widest variety and believe we have the healthiest products using all-natural and organic ingredients and pack our cookies with nitrogen to avoid preservatives,” says Dr. Sass Moulavi, Founder of Smart for Life.
Smart for Life® Cookie Diet plans to schedule a longer study with a larger sample group in order to review how its results measure up to these recent findings.
