In December 2017, Prinston Jean-Glaude, CEO of Primary Medical Care Centers, was in his mid-forties and in relatively good health. However, he weighed 212 pounds. this began to affect his energy levels and general mobility. So he challenged himself to lose weight with a new health routine.
“Consistency is the key to weight loss success,” says Prinston regarding developing a health routine. He began his journey by setting a weight loss goal of 195 pounds for 2018, which he achieved by December. He created an exercise regimen and based his diet on the biblical Daniel Fast—eliminating meat, sugar, and rice. For 2019, he set a weight loss goal of 180 pounds and has already lost 10.
Over 70 percent of U.S. adults aged 20 and over are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This presents a serious public health crisis that has become an epidemic. These issues connect to a number of health problems. This includes Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. However, losing a small percentage of total body weight can positively impact blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure. This can also decrease certain risk factors for some chronic diseases.
