Doctor Urges People To Eat Less, Save Money And Send It To Haiti

By Sasson Moulavi - March 24, 2010

give to haitiJanuary 25, 2010 – Boca Raton, FL – Dr. Sasson Moulavi, M.D., the creator of the Smart for Life® Cookie Diet, urges all Americans to lose weight by skipping a meal, saving the money and in turn sending it to Haiti.

“We eat too much, they don’t eat enough. Let’s all start replacing some meals we probably don’t need with a Smart for Life® healthy cookie.  That money you save can be donated to the Haiti Relief Efforts,” recommends Dr. Sass.

Smart for Life® will be giving away thousands of their 105 calorie Smart for Life® Cookie Meals to help people skip a meal without hunger.  The company will be distributing up to 10,000 cookies in the U.S. in Smart for Life® Weight Management Centers, local business and shopping malls beginning January 25th.  For every cookie eaten, people skip a meal and are then are able to donate the money that would have been spent (roughly $10).  We believe that this would raise approximately $100,000 in donations.  By saving the money spent on a meal, people will make a donation, without any cost to them and provide the opportunity to improve the health of both nations.

It is estimated that over 300,000 people die a year from obesity (http://www.cdc.gov/) – and obesity is quickly overtaking heart disease and cancer as the number one cause of death in the U.S.  If you add the millions who die from malnutrition (http://www.who.int/en/) around the world, that’s a real catastrophe.  According to the World Health Organization, more than 70% of children with protein-energy malnutrition live in Asia, 26% live in Africa, and 4% in Latin America and the Caribbean (WHO 2000).  By these standards, we Americans are gluttons.

“All of these extra calories can be skipped and the money sent over to Haiti to help these people who have nothing to eat, no electricity to cook, or refrigeration.  Skip the $4 espresso latte, the fatty steak sub with fries and send the cash to the people that need it most.  Cash donations work much better than food donations because with cash, you can improve the local economy,” said Dr. Sass “It sickens me to see already overweight people in malls lined up to spend money on garbage food that’s going to harm them.  Then we sit at home watching malnourished people lining up for a little ration of food. Please skip that next meal and send it to the hungry people in Haiti.”

The Smart for Life® Cookie Meals will be distributed through Smart for Life® Weight Management Centers free of charge (One per person).

Skip a meal, lose the weight, save the money and send it to Haiti.

Fastin

I would like to thank the ASBP for doing a great job. As a member of the American Society of  Bariatric Physicians, I get these alerts from time to time. They are alerting consumers about a product named Fastin, ready below for details.

Dear ASBP Member,

We would like to bring your attention to a potentially deceptive product called Fastin that many of your patients may be attracted to.

In the past, there was a prescription medication version of phentermine called “Fastin.” This brand name drug was manufactured by King Pharmaceuticals. That specific prescription medicine was removed from the market by King in 1998 and is no longer available in the US.

An over-the-counter supplement maker (Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals) has acquired the rights to the name only and is marketing its own version of Fastin in ways similar enough to confuse patients. It is important to know that this is NOT the same medication! For more information on the ingredients in this new supplement, please visit the website www.fastin.org.

For more information go to www.asbp.org or the www.fda.gov web site.

Best regards

Cookies Lower Cholesterol and Shed Pounds

By Sasson Moulavi - October 16, 2007

Cookies Lower Cholesterol, It’s True!

cookies lower cholesterolBariatric physician and cardiologist team up to help people lower cholesterol and lose weight with the Smart for Life famous cookie.

Since Smart for Life Weight Management Centers launched the heart-healthy cookie, Dr. Sasson Moulavi, M.D. and Dr. Floyd Cohen, M.D. have seen dramatic results when people eat these cookies and lose weight.

“My cholesterol has never been lower,” E.C., a Smart for Life™ client raves. “I am amazed!”

Dr. Moulavi, a Bariatric Physician, explains, “I have seen clients receive better results with our lifestyle changes and Smart for Life™ cookies than relying on medication alone.”

Dr. Cohen adds, “The cookies lower cholesterol and train clients to eat multiple meals a day which improve cholesterol and cardiac risk factors.”

For over five years, clients have been using food as medicine on the Smart for program. Developed by a physician, this program incorporates food created with both weight loss and improved health and wellness in mind.

The company began researching enhancements to its Smart Food product line which led them to specific ingredients featuring cholesterol-lowering effects of a specially formulated food containing both soluble fiber and plant sterols.

How Do The SmartforLife® Cookies Lower Cholesterol?

Translating this enhancement into their Smart Foods, the company now offers reformulated Smart for Life™ cookies that will include this incredibly healthy and unique flax meal/fish oil blend to provide the most beneficial products to clients. This blend provides a full complement of Omega-3 fatty acids (280 mg and 9.9 mg EPA and DHA). Besides the added health benefits, the taste is incredible! And all Smart for Life baked goods are made without trans-fats and no genetically modified organisms.

Dr. Cohen, a well-respected cardiologist with many years of experience, is the Medical Director of the Smart for Life™ in. He is very excited to treat patients not just with medicine but with food also.

“I really feel that I am able to offer my clients a simple and effective solution both for their weight and cardiac risk factors. My clients are able to get off medication and look and feel better about themselves,” Dr. Cohen explains.

“As a cardiologist, it is exciting to be involved in a company that is focused on innovative, healthy Smart Foods that enrich clients’ lives and improve their weight loss efforts and overall wellness,” Dr. Cohen proudly states.

The revolutionary Smart for Life™ Weight Management Program is a science-based program for safe, rapid weight-loss. The one-on-one physician supervised weight-loss program empowers clients with the knowledge, guidance, and motivation they need to lose weight. The experienced medical staff monitors and encourages the client’s progress until the goal weight is achieved, and then follows the client on a long-term maintenance plan. Smart for Life™ physicians address metabolic and health-related problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and under active thyroid. The combination of Smart Foods and professional supervision enables the Smart for Life™ client to safely and quickly lose up to 12 to 15 pounds a month*.

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers, the Franchisor with corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, is an international franchise company with over 40 locations . The company has helped hundreds of thousands of people make positive changes in their lives by helping them reach and maintain their weight loss goals.

consumers choice awardSmart for Life™ Weight Management Centers with 34 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada has received the prestigious Consumers’ Choice Award for outstanding achievements and standards of excellence in consumer satisfaction.

The winner of the Consumers’ Choice Award is unique in North America, as the winners are determined by consumers and not by a panel of judges.

The purpose of the award is to publicly identify those establishments which have been voted by consumers as being their choice for excellence.

The award considers the elements of quality, service, value and appearance. For recipients the award not only constitutes the crowning achievement of their efforts, but more importantly, it also represents the most valuable reward of all, the knowledge that they have earned the trust and loyalty of consumers.

Why We Won The Consumers Choice Award

The popular Smart for Life™ Program, that includes medical supervision, and one-on-one counseling, also features their proprietary cookie, which contains both all natural and organic ingredients, and keeps the client hunger-free and satisfied all day. Also, the cookie helps clients develop smarter eating habits by teaching them to eat smaller meals more frequently during the day. Along with eating their 6 cookies, and drinking 8 glasses of non-caloric beverages during the day, the client will have a substantial, healthy, high protein, low-fat dinner in the evening. This combination of foods and professional supervision enables the Smart for Life™ client to safely and quickly lose 12 to 15 pounds every month.

“In business, there is no greater compliment than earning the trust and loyalty of your clients and the respect and admiration of your peers. I congratulate everyone for receiving the prestigious Consumers’ Choice Award said The Rt. Honorable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, at the Toronto Gala 2006.

This year’s gala awards presentation event will take place on Monday, April 30, 2007 at the Cabaret of the Montreal Casino in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Boca Raton DoctorFor more than four years Boca Raton doctor Dr. Sasson Moulavi and wife Renata have helped thousands of clients lose tens of thousands of pounds. Their Smart for Life™ Weight Management Center on Glades Road has attracted all types of clients throughout South Florida.

Renata Moulavi, who supervises the Boca center says, “Some of our clients are looking to lose just ten to fifteen pounds and some want to lose as much as fifty or more pounds, we help them lose the weight with our program. The diet is very simple – six cookies throughout the day, eight glasses of water or other no calorie drinks and a low fat protein dinner consisting of six ounces of fish, chicken, turkey or shellfish and two vegetables. With this program they can lose as much as twelve to fifteen pounds a month.”

The cookies, which come in five flavors, are exclusively available at Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers. The cookies are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. They are also all-natural, with organic ingredients and have no chemical appetite suppressants or artificial sweeteners. Clients that found Dr. Sass by looking for a Boca Raton doctor praise the diet for its excellent hunger control and rapid weight loss. “I lost one hundred twenty-five pounds so far, with another twenty-five to my goal weight. The doctors and staff at the center are caring, friendly, encouraging and I refer my clients to them all the time,” says Ralph Ruggiero, Delray Beach Moda Salon III.

Work With a Boca Raton Doctor That Specializes In Weight Loss

According to Dr. Moulavi, “We medically supervise patients throughout the weight loss process and work closely with their primary care physician which helps them make positive changes in their lives by helping them reach and maintain their weight loss goals. We also address issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes – hopefully decreasing, and in some cases eliminating, their need for prescription medications as they lose weight.”

“Renata is great with the clients, she treats them like family. She always makes them feel comfortable even if they aren’t losing the weight they want. The whole staff works hard to help our clients stay dedicated and keep on track to their target goal weight. We know our clients are concerned about their weight and we take this very seriously,” said Dr Moulavi.

New Weight Loss Center Tries To Make You Smart For Life

A New Kind of Weight Loss Center

weight loss centerAs the manager of the Smart for Life™, Michelle Davidson has brought the nationally franchised weight-loss program to Wichita.

It’s not just the 10 to 15 pounds the program claims to help customers lose every month that first caught Davidson’s attention; it’s also the way in which they lose it.

“I got really curious about this when I heard people were eating cookies and losing weight,” she said.

Those cookies are part of Smart for Life’s product line of “Smart” foods, which also includes shakes, soups and puddings.

Formulated with proteins and amino acids, the products are designed to provide natural hunger suppression throughout the day while still providing the necessary nutrients. Combined with a specified evening meal and daily water intake of 64 ounces, the products form the basis of the Smart for Life program, with exercise added as the weight comes off.

The Weight Loss Center Objective Is To Help You

For Davidson, the program’s commitment to overall customer health is what sets it apart.

Each client is given a customized plan at their weight loss center, created under the supervision of a physician like James Seberger, who works with Davidson to determine each person’s specific needs. “He has a passion for this, and that adds to the program,” Davidson said.

Davidson’s passion is customer service, which she said she now combines with her enjoyment of health and nutrition.

Originally from Smith Center, Davidson graduated from with a degree in human resource management.

Having lived in Wichita for 10 years, Davidson said she first became interested in Smart for Life after family members in California and Tennessee had success as franchisees. Started in 2002, Smart for Life has approximately 40 clinics in North America.

In opening her East Central location Nov. 5, Davidson brought the second such clinic to Kansas. The other is in Overland Park.

Although she hopes to eventually open a west Wichita location, Davidson said she is just concentrating on getting the word out about the center for now.

For her, Smart for Life clients need only follow the same advice she would give other prospective business owners.

“The biggest thing is to try,” she said. “You never know what can happen. If you have a passion and a dream, right or wrong, go for it.”

Smart For Life Invades Phoenix

Smart for Life invades Phoenix with 2 new Weight Management Centers in Scottsdale and Chandler

September 5, 2006

smartforlife invades phoenixBelieve it or not, there is a way to lose weight that requires you to eat cookies all day long. What’s more, clients following the program lose an average of 12 to 15 pounds per month. The secret – a specially formulated protein rich cookie recipe and a doctor’s supervision.

The cookies, which come in five flavors – Chocolate, Cinnamon-Oatmeal Raisin, Maine Blueberry, Pina Colada and organic Banana – are exclusively available at Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers, which have helped tens of thousands of people lose weight over the past several years.

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers has opened its first of 10 planned Arizona locations in Chandler at Rural and Ray. The Scottsdale center will open right after Thanksgiving and Glendale in February.

The cookies are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. They are also all-natural and have no chemical appetite suppressants or artificial sweeteners. Patients praise the diet for its excellent hunger control and rapid weight loss.

On joining the program, each client meets with a doctor. They receive a complete physical exam, which includes blood work, an EKG and a Body Composition Analysis. Also included in the program are vitamins, supplements, and medications if necessary.

While the program works to shed pounds, patients are taught how to eat healthy to maintain their target weight. “The goal of the center is to train our clients to eat right and only when they are hungry. We teach them to stop eating before they are full, and to adopt diets high in protein and fiber and low in carbs,” says Dr. David Klein, one of the owners of the Arizona clinics, and also Chief Operating Officer of the parent company.

According to Dr. Sasson Moulavi, Chief Medical Director of Smart for Life™ and a Board Certified Bariatric physician, “We medically supervise patients throughout the weight loss process and work closely with their primary care physician. We also address issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes, usually decreasing, and in some cases eliminating, their need for prescription medications as they lose weight.”

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers specialize in medically supervised weight loss and have locations throughout the United States and Canada with centers in cities as Beverly Hills, CA, Boca Raton, FL, Rochester, MI, and Boston, MA. The Smart for Life™ Weight Management program helps clients make positive changes in their lives by helping them reach and maintain their weight loss goals.
