This year I’m finally going to lose weight. This is the New Year’s resolution of many people. But after two visits to the gym and a week-long fast according to the guaranteed advice from the Internet, the quest for a slimmer figure often ends. If you want to lose weight in a healthy way or help someone close to you to lose weight effectively, take advantage of the offer of preventive examination at the Kardiovize at the International Clinical Research Centre of St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno.

Twenty-nine-year-old Milan also decided to start his fight against excess weight under the supervision of doctors. “I was particularly intrigued by the fact that this is not another generic diet that circulates on the internet, or consultations with consultants who try to push expensive products on you.”

On the first day, those interested in a Kardiovize examination will have to take several measurements. “People will find out the ratio of fat to muscle in their body, learn how much sugar they have in their blood and whether their liver and kidneys are functioning properly,” said Michal Havelka, the study’s coordinator. After the results are analyzed, a consultation with a nutritional therapist follows. “I was a bit surprised that I didn’t get an exact itinerary of what to eat when. Instead, we talked about what foods I should include more of and what to replace my favourite snacks with if necessary,” Milan described.

According to the experts at St. Anne’s University Hospital, this approach is exactly sustainable. “There is no point in playing forbidden foods. People may deny themselves for a while, but most of the time they slip into old habits. The important thing is that they learn that it is the quantity and calorie counting that is important,” Havelka said.

Milan changed his lifestyle habits according to the advice given to him after the Cardiovision examination. “I won’t say that the results came all at once. I had to work on my diet and add a lot of exercise. I wasn’t always able to stick to the regime 100 per cent, but in six months I lost ten per cent of my body weight, most of which was fat,” the man boasted. He also appreciated that those around him noticed the change. “”Oh, and of course I’m happy that my sugar and cholesterol levels have improved, so I hope I won’t see the doctors too often,” he added with a smile.

So if you want to change your lifestyle and avoid diets that can gamble with your health, or you want to please a loved one, feel free to head over to the Kardiovize website where you can order a preventive screening.
