These are the results from our program; the following are actual figures from a program of only 18 days on the NEWSTART® Lifestyle program. A process is started through which you continue losing weight – safely – and regain your health.
|Level Group||Patients||Avg at Admittance||Avg at End of Program||Avg Weight Loss|
|169||206 lbs||199 lbs||7 lbs|
|125||229 lbs||221 lbs||8 lbs|

Body Mass Index can be calculated using pounds and inches with this equation:
BMI = ( Weight in lbs / ( Height in inches × Height in inches ) ) × 703
For example, a person who weighs 220 pounds and is 6 feet 3 inches tall has a BMI of 27.5.
For many, the American dream has turned into a nightmare. Instead of enjoying life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they’re experiencing declining health, bondage to rising medical expenses, and the pursuit of the latest wonder drug.
What many Americans fail to realize, and what all the latest medical research is showing, is that lifestyle, rather than a bad draw in the genetic pool, is the leading cause of America’s health problems. One physician put it this way, “Genetics is the gun. Lifestyle pulls the trigger.”
Genetics, like a loaded gun, doesn’t hurt anyone unless you pull the trigger. And it is our couch-potato lifestyle together with our high fat, junk food diet that is pulling the trigger on our health.
The good news is that shattered dreams can be restored. Lifestyle medicine can restore the vigor of health along with a renewed passion for life. Thousands have experienced this at the NEWSTART® Lifestyle Center located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains just minutes from Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.
