Your Secret Weapon to Weight Loss

There are many health risks to being overweight. The Lime in the Coconut is unique and has certain "secret weapons" that are exclusively available at our compounding pharmacy at the Lake of the Ozarks, that can be very helpful when trying to lose weight. In this blog, we want to review a few major health risks associated with being overweight and give you an overview of Metaid.

Health Risks That Can Be Linked to Being Overweight and Obese

If you are overweight or obese, you may be increasing your risk of having many health related issues, including:

  • kidney disease
  • pregnancy problems, such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and increased risk of a cesarian delivery
  • fatty liver disease
  • osteoarthritis
  • sleep apnea
  • certain types of cancer
  • heart disease and strokes
  • high blood pressure
  • type 2 diabetes

There are a couple different ways to tell if you are overweight.

Waist Size

You can consider an important number which is your waist size in inches. Having too much fat around your waist can increase health risks even more than having fat in other sections of your body.

Body Mass Index

Calculating your BMI is another way to tell if you are either normal weight, overweight or are obese. Your BMI or Body Mass Index considers your height and weight and provides a score to help place your in one of the following categories:

  • Normal weight: BMI of 18.5 to 24.9
  • Overweight: BMI of 25 to 29.9
  • Obesity: BMI of 30 or higher

Metaid: Your Secret Weapon to Weight Loss

The Lime in the Coconut Compounding Pharmacy has a product called Metaid. Metaid is a proprietary blend of essential oils, combined with a low carbohydrate diet, it can make for a great addition to your weight loss efforts. SPECIAL TIP: If you are adding your Metaid drops to your water, be sure to add it to a glass of water rather than a plastic cup, because the liquid can get soaked into the plastic.
