Did you know that your body needs fat?  Yes, it’s true!  When establishing body composition (what percentage of fat, lean muscle and water that makes up your body),  fat exists as one of three categories that make up your total fat percentage.  The categories of body fat are: 1. Essential Fat which is defined as fat necessary for your body to function 2. Reserve Fat which is needed in case you get sick or that food and water is not available and 3. Excess Fat which is the unwanted fat that contributes to diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other chronic diseases. 

At White Lotus Acupuncture, we created a weight loss program designed to help you achieve a healthy body composition that consists of normal lean tissue, fat and water percentages.  When your body is balanced with respect to these percentages, you can achieve Your Best Fit Ever!

Each weight loss session offers a free body composition analysis along with nutritional recommendations, hypnosis for behavioral changes and acupuncture for cravings and stress reduction.  for additional information, check out our website at http://whitelotusonline.com/weightloss.htm or call us at 703-312-7000. You may also leave a comment here or send an email info@whitelotusonline.com We look forward to hearing from you!
