PureLifestyle launches to change high obesity rate

PureLifestyle launches to change high obesity rate in New Zealand

A new fourteen day cleanse programme aimed at curbing obesity in New Zealand has been launched.

“Your PureLifestyle 14-Day Cleanse”, is designed is to help you lose up to 4.5 kg over 14 days. This is done by eliminating eight foods that sabotage peoples’ weight loss, and then re-introduce them. The goal is to help you create your “new normal.”

The programme created by Dr Isabel Hunsinger, affectionately called “Dr Isabel” by her patients, has been a GP for 23 years, and is passionate about changing the way people think, about obesity and weight loss. The mission of the Dr.Isabel @ PureLifestyle Team is to serve people and value to the lives we serve.

“We don’t have a health care system in New Zealand we have a disease management system. I prefer to get to the root of the problem, instead of giving more medications,” says Dr. Hunsinger.

“My purpose in life is to help people take back their health, before bedtime, and my bedtime is when I die.”

It’s all about Health, Education, Attitude and Leadership. It is so sad that New Zealand is ranked number two for obesity and USA is number one. We in New Zealand have more than one in three adults, and one and five children, classified as overweight or obese.

Talking about weight can be uncomfortable for clinicians, patients and their families. However, obesity is one of the most significant preventable health problems in New Zealand, and Dr Isabel believes that we can serve, and add value to our patients by coaching them with simple nutritional literacy.

The 14 day cleanse programme is aimed at getting people to think about what they eat, how they eat, how much they eat, and how to manage their lives, so they can, “Live Life to the Max”.

“I am passionate about making positive changes in peoples lifestyles. This programme has worked for me, so the proof is in the pudding. At my heaviest I was 90 kilograms and managed through this programme to get down to 61 kilograms, after attempting all sorts of diets and exercise. The great thing is that I have managed to maintain this weight. And most importantly I have kept it off”, says Dr Isabel.

The new programme kicks off on March the 4th, with people from around the World deciding to make a change in their lives. Many have already signed up to the programme, and placement will fill up fast.

For just $99.00 people can sign up to the online programme by going to www.doctorisabel.co.nz
