What’s so special about Dr Leon’s weight loss program?

We know that each one of us has a unique genetic profile and metabolic type. As a result, different people respond differently to certain foods, and even to specific exercise. Dr Leon discovered that there are specific metabolic responses that appear to be common to a large percentage of people who struggle with easy weight gain and food addictions. For example, most people who struggle with their weight love their carbohydrates. However, they have a metabolism that has difficulties dealing with refined carbohydrates, sugars and sweets. This causes them to gain weight easily, and can also lead to binging, food addictions, and diabetes.

Publications : Herald Sun Australians spend up big on supplements each year. Charmaine Yabsley investigates whether they’re a waste of time and money.Popping a daily vitamin has become as routine as brushing our teeth, with around 50 per cent of Australians using vitamins or mineral supplements every year. It’s big business too: we spend around $230 billion annually on therapies, supplements and alternative medicines in our search for wellbeing. But do vitamins work?

Don’t Judge A Book by its Cover Diet Dillema Posted by: Daniel Hoy

Publications : Herald Sun HEAD to your nearest book store and take a look in the health and fitness aisle. Not only will you see an enormously vast number of diet books, you’ll see just as many different messages. They promise results from 21-day diets, to a week, to a day, even down to a new you in three hours. On the surface these books have little in common, but they do share one common trait. They promise the kind of quick fix that rarely works if you want to achieve longterm weight loss. Weight-loss expert Dr Leon Massage says the most sustainable goal for weight loss is 1kg a week… http://www.bmiweightloss.com.au/media/files/Article.LM.HeraldSun.pdf

Media’s Focus on Ideal Body Shape Can Boost Women’s Body Satisfaction …. momentarily. Posted by: Dr. Leon Massage

Publications : DR LEON (AMA Victoria spokesperson – Weightloss & Nutrition) Research reveals women gain momentary motivation and inspiration from health and beauty magazines showcasing “ideal” body shape, particularly women actively dieting. But as dieting takes time and effort, and women still report their weight as the greatest source of unhappiness – it’s a short-term high which dissipates to the usual dissatisfaction. DR LEON has spoken about the media use of unrealistic body images (in health and beauty magazines), expectations for quick weight-loss (Biggest Loser) and products promising rapid weight-loss (detox and diet programs) – and has medically sound, metabolic based practical advice for people keen to achieve sustainable long-term weightloss. http://www.bmiweightloss.com.au/media/files/Dr%20Leon%20April.pdf

What’s wrong with me? Posted by: Rachel Smith

Publications : Good Health F unny twinges, ongoing infections, not feeling ‘right’… these can all be signs of your body’s red-flag system. And if you stop and listen to your symptoms, says GP Dr Leon Massage, you’re more likely to catch things before they become chronic – or serious. “Keeping a health diary is probably overly neurotic, but it’s essential to keep an updated list of the tablets you’re on – and to know what they’re for.” Also, monitor any worrying symptoms on a calendar, especially if they’re increasing in severity, occur at certain times or via definite triggers. http://www.bmiweightloss.com.au/media/files/Article%20in%20Good%20Health%20Mag.pdf 

A fillip to tourism – Strange beliefs are among the many curiosities about Vanuatu. Posted by: Dr. Leon Massage

Publications : IF a patient presented to your surgery and declared that Prince Phillip was the world’s saviour, would you refer them to your local psychiatric hospital or travel agent? You may think me odd, but I would consider the second option first. Having returned from six days on Vanuatu, I can say with hand on heart that this picturesque Pacific idyll features the beautiful and the bizarre in equal measure. Barely four-hours flight from Melbourne and 2.5 hours from Brisbane, this small archipelago is home to strange belief systems. These include reverence to Queen Elizabeth’s consort and a mythical US serviceman called John Frum. The latter even has adherents in the country’s parliament. Both belief systems exist on the island of Tanna, which is a one-hour flight to the south of the capital, Port Vila. Tanna is also home to the world’s most accessible active volcano, which may go some way to explaining why two separate communities within walking distance of each other hold such strange beliefs. Having met these adherents I can say, with absolute conviction, that they appear in every other respect to be normal. http://www.bmiweightloss.com.au/media/files/Vanuatu%20article%20in%20Oz%20Doc.pdf
