The initiative for Americans to eat foods that are healthier has been in the media for quite some time now. Restaurants, grocers, and food manufacturers have scrambled to be the first offer healthy foods that consumers will like, eat, and can afford. According to a recent Los Angeles Times article Walmart will begin to offer healthy foods beginning in the spring. It’s pretty hard to believe that Walmart and healthy food will be synonymous but according to the article that’s the goal. Walmart introduced its Great For You icon this week at a Web cast and press conference. It’s part of the mega-chain’s healthier foods initiative started last year to offer more healthful and less expensive foods to customers. According to Walmart, they meet rigorous nutrition criteria informed by the latest nutrition science and authoritative guidance from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Institute of Medicine. The standards were developed with help from food and nutrition experts and leading health organizations, a news release explains. It is probably a stretch to believe that Walmart will replace Whole Foods as a healthy food destination for consumers ,but eating foods that are healthier will help consumers to lose weight and maintain a healthy stable weight. Dr. Kim emphasizes to his patients that eating healthy and maintaining a regular exercise schedule is important however it does not guarantee that patients will not have problems with stubborn fat pockets that tend to become an issue as we age. These fat pockets tend to appear on the thighs, upper and lower abdomen, and upper back. Dr. Kim will typically recommend liposuction to help the patient achieve better contour. As a true artist, Dr. Kim is able to sculpt the body and create a svelte and toned figure for patients. Patient should be close to their ideal body weight for the best results. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and Dr. Kim is careful to explain to patients that the results are heavily dependent upon the surgeon performing the procedure. It is tempting for patients to search for discount liposuction procedures. The truth is although liposuction is a popular procedure, it is often performed sub standardly by untrained medical professionals. Dr. Kim is proud of his results, and his ever-growing population of patients and referrals are a testimony to his performance and consistency.
