Dr. Fazil of the Weight Loss Center of Yuma has his own terms that he uses around the clinic. Below we have Dr. Fazil explain these terms and how they came about.
- What is the yummy diet?
Since this weight loss program originated from Yuma, we say eat Yummy, that means you can eat whatever you want to eat – just watch total daily calories. Hence Yummy diet as there is no restriction on the type of food you eat.
- What are ninja calories?
Ninja calories are what sneak into your mouth without intention to eat it in the first place and ultimately causes you weight gain. These are hidden calories that you don’t count for when planning meals. For example, ninja calories are when you want to restrict your calories, but then you hear an advertisement about buy one burger get the second one free and you eat twice as much. The second burger contains ninja calories.
- What is low rider pants syndrome?
This term was coined by the patients of the Weight Loss Center of Yuma. They were losing weight so fast that their pants keep falling off and they refuse to buy new clothes. People in their neighborhood started saying they were wearing low rider pants! Now the Weight Loss Center of Yuma tells its patients at the start of the program that they will have to buy new clothes or they will develop “low rider pants syndrome”.
