The Waist Twisting Disc: Another Gadget to Help Lose Weight

February 27, 2007

imagesdfghfgh.jpgI just discovered this gadget given to me by a pharmaceutical company which has been sitting on my bathroom floor together with my bathroom scale.  It’s actually an innocent looking small round disc shaped exercise gadget that can make you move in one place anywhere anytime.

This device is an innovative and a safe home fitness device that is made of a strong plastic platform that “allows you to produce an intensive rotating movement when standing on it.”  It allows you to move sideways without stressing your back.  It is small but actually durable enough to withstand our weight and still allows our whole body to move sideways freely. 

It is suited for individuals who are lazy enough to change to a sports attire and drive to a gym.  Great for people who wants a home fitness equipment that can give one a great aerobic exercise program.   And since it is small and light weight, it can be carried inside a backpack and used anywhere, anytime!

I am now a great fan of this gadget.  I started using it during one rainy day and just missed my daily walking regimen.  So as not to give an excuse to not doing my routine, I grabbed my iPod, stepped on the disc and started twisting.  And to my amazement I enjoyed it without having to change my boxer shorts and “kamiseta”.   And to think, I was able to exercise even if it was raining outside.

I thought of writing about it after I’ve been doing this regimen for quite sometime.  I have to make sure it serves its purpose without giving me the muscle aches from the twisting that you have to do.  I do few twists in the morning with my sit-ups before I take a bath then my full routine in the afternoon alternating it with my walking exercise and swimming.  Again… no more excuses that it is raining or the usual excuse “that my knees hurt when I walk”….

    Doc, where can we buy this gadget?

  2. eva c. malbas Says:

    Hi, Doc. Thanks for reminding me to use this gadget which i usually ignore when i go to the gym.. by the way, may you pls write on the topic L-carnitine or anything about FITRUM? Is this a safe diet pill?

  3. Doc Gerry Says:

    I think you’re asking bout L carnititne form the standpoint of it being marketed as a weight loss pill> Unfortunately, there is no scientific evidence so far to show that it improves weight loss. The basis of the calim was only from one small study claiming that L-carnitine helps reduce weight but subsequent studies have not supported the claim.

    If you are taking L carnititne as a supplement … be careful too because high doses (5 or more grams per day) may cause diarrhea, weight gain due to increased appetite, body odor, and rash.

    Fitrum on the other hand as far as I know is just fiber. Majority of us are low in fiber in our diet and therefore increasing fiber supplementation can be helpful but not necessarily loss weight. It can make us feel full easily though. Please do read my article on herbal supplement and the benefits of high fiber diet.

    The only approved diet pills in the market are xenical which I recommend and Reductil which should be taken with caution due to its effect on BP and is centrally acting.

  4. Doc Gerry Says:

    Joshua… I got mine from the pharmaceutical company. I understand from the comment of Eva that she saw it in the gym. So I guess you can get it anywhere in the sports shop. I saw it also being sold for $29.99 in the internet. Good luck.

  5. adrienne Says:

    Hi there! yes doc iv been doing this waist twisting every morning but id like to check is there a right way to do it? what’s the purpose of this? one more thing doc is it okay to take Vaniderm(glutathione 500mg, alpha lipoic acid 100mg and vit. c 100mg) even if im taking my euthyrox 75mg? would ther be any complications for this?

  6. Doc Gerry Says:

    Hi Adrienne… it’s as its name implies: you twist with your waist. The good thing with this regimen is you can freely move your hands in whatever direction you like. You can even simulate the movement of the arms while walking or twisitng your arms sideways too.

    The marketing arm of glutathione is so strong that it is always on TV with prominent personlities. Just check the NIH website or the FDA… no mention of glutathione at all as a way to whiten your skin or other cliams they have. As always has been… my stand on supplements is a NO NO! If you based on what you’ve read then it’s your call. The stand of the medical community is…only subscribe to drugs that have been thoroughly studied not only on their EFFECTS but also of their SiDE EFFECTS. Don’t believe the claims that this drug has wonderful Effects But NO side effects. There is no such a thing! Especially if the only data they can present are from pure testimonials.

  7. Adrienne Says:

    Thanks for that piece of advice doc.

  8. mariz Says:

    Thanks for this very enlightenment information on glutathione. A doctor friend of mine convincingly recommended the taking of the glutathione in whitening the skin without even mentioning its side effects but good thing i was hesitant at that time to try it since i was still under medication.

    Now, i dont think i will ever take glutathione. Thanks again!
