Robard Offers Healthcare Providers the Best Diets for Weight Loss



Obesity statistics in the United States are staggering. When you see that more than 35 percent of men and women are obese, you have to ask yourself what can be done about it. As a healthcare provider, you want to make sure your patients lead a long, healthy life — and obesity may be prohibiting them from doing that.

If you’re a healthcare provider or professional that’s ever considered offering obesity treatment as a fee-for-service addition to your practice, now is the time. Not only is obesity the country’s biggest health issue, it’s also one of the more lucrative businesses to undertake. When it comes to considering treating obesity, keep this in mind: Lack of experience, cost and other trepidations can be lessened or eliminated by practical hands-on training and resources to support a new program, your staff and your business. That’s what we do, and we can help.



It is imperative to recognize that as the obesity epidemic grows, so will its related comorbidities. Eighty percent of people with diabetes are overweight. That’s more than a mere coincidence. Robard providers can attest that when their patients go on one of our weight loss programs, comorbidities such as diabetes subside and even dissipate. Our obesity treatment models were created specifically for busy medical and healthcare professionals so a new obesity treatment program can be implemented — utilizing your existing staff — while you maintain focus on your expertise. Resolution or reduction of chronic medical conditions can be achieved by treating the common root source:  Obesity.  It starts with you. Click here to learn more.

How to Lose 200 Pounds in a Year!



One of the worst things about being obese is how simple tasks become increasingly difficult. Such as driving a car like Jim Carpenter, cleaning the house like Julie Roth, or even going on a leisurely stroll like John Blair. For nearly 500 pound television producer Bill DiNicola, it was the inability for his safety harness to fasten on a roller coaster he was attempting to ride at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia. Things that we take for granted can be insurmountable for some. “You’re that person who can break furniture by sitting on it, by doing what it is designed to do,” says DiNicola.

Bill didn’t always have issues with his weight. He was a high school athlete, but when the activity decreased and the food intake rose, Bill added weight at an uncontrollable pace to the tune of 476 pounds. Bill knew that his weight was an issue, but when he was unable to fit into a size 4X jersey, he knew he had to take action. The sobering moment came with a revelation. “There’s one thing you can do right now, and that’s change and switch it,” he says. And that’s exactly what Bill did.

In January 2015, Bill went on the New Direction System as a part of the Bon Secours nutrition and weight loss program. Under the medical supervision of Dr. Phillip Snider and his staff, Bill lost 227 pounds. The hard work and dedication it took pales in comparison to the feeling of accomplishment and renewed vigor for life Bill has. That roller coaster harness that wouldn’t latch over 200 pounds ago now does so with no problem, and Bill is back to enjoying the thrills of riding the roller coaster with the thoughts of the shame he had before being a distant memory.  Take a further look into Bill’s story with the video below:

Turn New Year's Resolutions to Rest of Year Goals



“New Year’s Resolution, bro!” That was the reply I received when I asked a friend if he is ready to come to the gym with me. That’s the train of thought for a lot of us dieters around this time of year. The New Year is right around the corner, and that is when we’ll either finally start or get back on track towards a healthier lifestyle.

But why wait? There is rarely ever a “perfect time” to start something —not to mention there are some negatives to waiting until the New Year. Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching and it’s tough not to overeat during those holidays. Dieters sometimes feel that since we know when we’ll start, we have that extra time to eat however we want, and possibly gain some extra pounds to add to the ones we already want to lose. We may also get into some bad habits, like slacking on physical activity. When the New Year starts, we expect our activity to be high and consistent; that’s the goal at least, so we may get comfortable in our inactivity during the meantime.

What better time to start than today, right now? You know what you want to do, so why wait until the New Year to start? Instead, make the New Year a target for when you want to reach your goal weight and start working towards it. So when the New Year starts, it will be time to set new goals. Find motivation wherever you can. Maybe there are events you may want to take part in such as a 5k or 10k that you have to prepare for. Tag along with a friend or family member that may already have a workout regimen. The finish line won’t ever get closer until you start. Start now with working towards a healthier you with Robard’s proven weight management programs that have helped thousands achieve their weight loss goals — but, more importantly, improve their health and happiness. What better time to start than now? To find a clinic near you, click here.
