Dr. Susan Lark, women’s health
expert, designs new weight loss program for women over 40
POTOMAC, Md., November 5, 2002Susan Lark,
M.D., women’s health expert who advocates combining traditional
medical protocols with alternative medicine, has created the new
Daily Balance Weight Loss Program, which offers natural
solutions to the core issues facing women over 40 who struggle to
lose weight and keep it off.
According to the National Institutes of Health, 58 million Americans,
age 20-74, are overweight. Thirty-two million are women; and at
any given time, some 30 to 40 percent of those women are working
on weight loss. Most of them experience the yo-yo effect, losing
weight on one diet, only to gain it all back and then some, when
they stop dieting. The holidays are a particularly difficult time
for many. In fact, recent studies show that Americans average a
seven-pound weight gain each year from Thanksgiving through New
There are many ways to diet that may help lose weight temporarily,
says Dr. Lark, but very often, these programs have a poor
record of helping make the changes that address the real causes
of weight gainespecially for women over 40.
Over her 27 years in practice, Dr. Lark has worked with thousands
of female patients who were struggling to lose weight. She has determined
that there are four main barriers for women that are caused by age-related
chemical imbalances: a sluggish metabolism, which comes with aging;
food allergies, which can cause accumulation of inflammatory fluids
or false fat; mood swings, which intensify food cravings;
and disturbances in the signals that regulate appetite. Her new
program addresses each of those barriers to stop hunger, boost mood
and maintain high energy.
An expert on nutrition and supplementation, Dr. Lark has made the
Daily Balance Meal Replacement Shake the cornerstone
of her Daily Balance Weight Loss Program. The program
also includes a powerful nutritional formula, the Daily Balance
Weight Loss Booster, which enhances metabolism, suppresses
appetite, and lifts mood, plus a supplement, Daily Balance
L-Carnitine, which helps convert fat into energy. In addition,
Dr. Lark also prepared a Daily Balance Guide to Permanent
Weight Loss. Written primarily for women over 40, the guide
contains meal plans, explains how to use the shake and supplements,
and outlines appropriate moderate exercises. Dr. Lark’s entire weight
loss program is available exclusively through Doctors’ Preferred,
Inc. (DPI), a subsidiary of Phillips Health, LLC, and one of the
largest North American direct-mail supplement distributors.
By following my recommendations for moderate exercise and
the Daily Balance meal plan, women over 40 should
be well on their way to permanent weight loss, Dr. Lark adds.
Willpower, alone, won’t help anyone lose weight. The cravings
will eventually overwhelm you. But the right type of protein, in
the right amount will promote a natural feeling of fullness.
That’s why I specifically chose soy as the primary source
of protein in my meal replacement product. It’s heart-healthy, high
quality and cholesterol free, and contains phytoestrogens (plant
estrogens) to help balance a woman’s hormone levels.
Dr. Lark has devoted her career to raising awareness of women’s
health issues, such as osteoporosis, hormone replacement therapy
and obesity. One of the foremost authorities in the fields of clinical
and preventive medicine, she pioneered the use of women’s self-care
treatments based on diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management,
which she has presented in a nine-book series that includes The
Premenstrual Syndrome Self Help Book, The Menopause Self
Help Book and The Estrogen Decision (Celestial Arts Publishing).
Most recently, she co-authored The Chemistry of Success: Six
Secrets of Peak Performance (Bay Books, 2000).
Her monthly newsletter, The Lark Letter, with a circulation
of over 100,000 subscribers, and her Web site, www.drlark.com,
are dedicated to educating and empowering women to make the best
choices for optimum health. Web site visitors may also sign up for
Dr. Lark’s free bi-weekly e-letter, which offers comments on breaking
health news plus lifestyle tips, easy recipes and simple exercises
for health and well-being.
We are especially pleased to have this new program available
for women over 40, says Linda Werner, DPI executive director
for women’s health. We’ve been deluged with calls from women
asking Dr. Lark to put all of her recommendations into a program
to make it easy for them to lose weight. The response has been overwhelming.
