20Lighter Announces Peer-Reviewed Publication of Weight Loss Program Clinical Data

By: 20Lighter, LLC
BOCA RATON, Fla. - Sept. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- 20Lighter, LLC, a comprehensive weight loss program focused on the reduction of visceral fat, announced today the publication of a peer-reviewed article in the Translational Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine.

The article, titled "Prescription Thyroid Replacement Does Not Affect Outcomes in an Intensive Weight Reduction Program", highlights the experience of participants prescribed thyroid replacement medication versus those without, and was authored by 20Lighter co-founders Dr. Jessica Barnes and Dr. Gerry Dembrowski.

The report represents the first large-scale study quantifying body composition changes specifically in participants on prescription thyroid medications, and is the first to demonstrate a clinically relevant improvement in not only body weight and BMI, but also tissue hydration, body fat, and visceral fat.

"We firmly believe that weight loss programs should move away from body weight and toward endpoints such as visceral fat to truly gauge the impact on participants health", said Co-founder & CMO, Dr. Gerry Dembrowski. "There is a clear need for programs addressing more than just a number on the scale. We are proud to be the only weight loss program actively showcasing clinical data that reflects clinically meaningful improvements in physiologic and metabolic endpoints including those directly linked to cardiovascular disease risk and metabolic syndrome."
