The school season is underway. What is your advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle while being busy and on-the-go?

Perhaps you added weight these past few months. Don’t ignore it. That is what we are here for, to help you refocus, get back on track and stay the course.

The first thing I would suggest is to schedule an appointment with CardioMender, MD today and avoid procrastinating! The sooner you come in,  the sooner you’ll get back into balance. A lot of people travel over the summer, which can lead to loss of focus. With the kids going back to school, now is the perfect time to get back into your routine, on plan and Restart in order to regain your focus!

When you come in, we will check your weight, body fat percentage and waist measurement, as part of your routine follow-up appointment.

To find out more about how we can help you reach your weight loss goals with solutions that work with your family’s busy schedule, visit us at or call us at 954-628-3802 to set up your appointment today.

How do you stay motivated after a long day of chauffeuring kids to school, work, after school activities etc.?

Planning is key.

Have a Plan A (first choice), Plan B (backup) and Plan C (failsafe), as contingencies. The shortage of time is frequently part of why we make sub-optimal choices. Be prepared with a predetermined backup of plan-friendly snacks and food options that you have with you, when in the car, at a meeting or on the soccer field, or have on-hand at work and at home. Items such as cheese sticks, CMMD protein shakes, CMMD protein bars and snacks, are great options.

I also highly recommend staying hydrated. Water helps you avoid eating and drinking extra calories.

How can CardioMender, MD help me lose weight during the busy “school season”?

CardioMender, MD is unique because we help you lose the weight and then maintain what you’ve lost. By participating in our Maintenance Plan, our team helps you keep the weight off during the school season and beyond.

Our maintenance plan helps you stay accountable and vigilant with weekly weigh-ins, weekly lipotropic B12 injections and one-on-one encounters with the Cardiomender, MD team.

What are some of your favorite go-to snacks/meals for school year that can be enjoyed by the whole family?

Our SmartBuns are the staple to any sandwich and have zero net carbs! If you haven’t tried them, stop by and see how good they are. SmartBuns are available in the CardioMender, MD Pantry and are available in two varieties: plain and sesame.

We also have muffins, which are a great go-to breakfast as you head out the door, or if you prefer smoothies, I recommend our meal replacement smoothie shakers; just add water, shake and they go anywhere. They exchange as 2 Lean Proteins.

If you are out of town,  you can order most of our  foods and snacks online from our website at and we will mail them to you free of charge if you spend $100 or more. Finally, you can visit our website which provides a myriad of recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner that the whole family can enjoy.
