Let’s face it, in Miami…extra pushin’ for the cushion doesn’t always apply!  Excess fat and an unhealthy diet can lead to an array of health concerns and issues.  Some include, high blood pressure, fatigue, sleep apnea, pregnancy problems, and increased chances of heart disease, stroke, and cancer.  Luckily, with some life shifts, all of this can be avoided.

Dr. Rusilko shares, “I don’t believe in starvation diets. The logic that consuming less food is better for successful weight loss actually throws the body into starvation mode, which leads to the storage of every calorie consumed as adipose fat.”  He continues, “This natural defense mechanism stems from a time when food was scarce and adipose fat served as an energy reserve, not an aesthetic inconvenience.”  Consuming five to six meals per day converts this physiological energy storage process into a caloric expenditure mechanism, fat burning. Providing a meal every 2-3 hours trains the body not to store calories as fat, but instead, burn them for energy (since the next meal is only a few hours away).  “From improved energy and sleep to decreases in inflammation and chronic pain. Losing excess fat is one of the best investments one can make in themselves,” says Dr. Rusilko.

The ThermaBurn Medical Fat Loss Program combines a comprehensive diet plan with medications, supplements, and exercise programs customized around each individual’s lifestyle.  After an initial consultation, an individualized program will be created according to each patient’s diagnostic testing results, personal goals, and physical abilities. The main focus of the ThermaBurn Fat Loss program is to stimulate the body’s ability to burn body fat instead of carbohydrates as the main fuel source.
