Counting Calories Inadequate for Sustained Weight Loss
Date:5/19/2011

CINCINNATI and LOS ANGELES, May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Counting calories is not the answer to sustained weight loss, says clinical pharmacist James LaValle, one of the nation's leading experts in natural health and medicine.  The long-term solution?  Rejuvenating our metabolism.

In response, one of the country's largest health and fitness chains, Life Time Fitness (NYSE: LTM), has partnered with LaValle and his company, Integrative Health Resources (IHR), to implement an effective and innovative approach to their weight loss programs.

"We know long-term weight management takes more than moving more and eating less. The challenge has been to help our fitness professionals and Registered Dietitians understand the many ways people's metabolisms are affected beyond just the calories they consume," says Tom Nikkola, Director of Nutrition and Weight Management for Life Time Fitness, known as The Healthy Way of Life Company.  "With Jim LaValle and the IHR team, we've been able to bring our education to another level, while also developing online tools and unique programs to help our members achieve the goals they're after."

LaValle is among the nation's most trusted health care professionals.  He was named one of the nation's 50 most influential pharmacists and awarded Clinician of the Year for 2011.  LaValle trains thousands of physicians and other health care professionals each year on the application of natural therapies in their contemporary practices.

Concerning weight loss, LaValle emphasizes the importance of accounting for metabolic issues like chronic stress, inflammation and insulin resistance.

"People mistakenly think it's all about calories in, calories out," says LaValle, who notes that some 65 million Americans diet at any given time with an estimated 92% failing after the first year.  "That's merely on
