A recent client named Sarah (name has been changed for privacy reasons) at Ace Medical Group suffered from multiple medical problems, including obesity. She could not transfer herself from a bed to a chair without assistance. The big question is, with limited mobility how could she lose weight? Sarah continues to lose weight using the SlimPlate System, a 4 month weight loss plan using portion control.

Sarah is now losing two pounds a month by using the SlimPlate System. Within a year, she lost 24 pounds. “That is the right path one needs to take in terms of weight control. Before considering to start a weight loss program, a person needs to make sure it will provide sustainable weight loss and long term results," says Dr. Sandeep Grewal.

“Being a primary care doctor, I address each of my patients' problems, and I have a responsibility to find a solution for them. With 20 plus pounds of weight loss, Sarah’s breathing problem has improved, and she is able to remove the oxygen machine that she was required to wear for the past 12 years,” says Dr. Nwe “That is the reason I urge my patients to take their health into their own hands. Insurance may not cover weight management services, but losing weight can come with many benefits. It could offer many more benefits than the initial costs, later in life, and save money in terms of the amount spent on medicines and healthcare.”

Dr. Myo Nwe wants her patients to do the right thing for their weight and health in an easy and affordable way. That is why she created a weight loss plan that does not include the need for continuous spending on special food, which can add up quickly. "If one changes their dinnerware to the SlimPlate System, they will be rewarded with a new healthier life. Simple things like SlimPlate System can change eating habits," says Dr. Myo Nwe.

In her office the most important points she discusses to help people with disabilities to manage their weight are:

  • How to improve metabolism by eating right
  • How to improve thermogenic effects of food intake and make their body burn more calories
  • How to limit non-nutrient calories by adopting simple small habits
  • Eat real food, get rid of artificial sweetener and lose weight
  • Eating the correct portions at the right time, eat real food and keeping metabolism in fast mode
  • How to improve activity if you are in a wheelchair

SlimPlate System even offers a free online weight loss program presented by Dr. Myo Nwe. Weight Loss Program Registration is simple and easy. One can fill out a simple form and be on their way to a healthier life..
