Who is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss in St Petersburg, FL?

Did you know that over 45 million people in America try going on a diet every year? With as many obese people in the nation, that makes sense. Unfortunately, about half of those people fail to meet their weight loss goals. Often, it's because the diets they choose aren't focused on making them healthy - they're only about quick, unhealthy weight loss.

In reality, most diets don't work in the long run. The best way to lose weight and keep it off for good is with practical, healthy lifestyle changes. That's where physicians and other weight loss professionals can help. Unlike fly-by-night diets, medical weight loss has been proven to be effective.

But how do you know if you're a candidate? Let's take a look at five common signs you need medical weight loss treatment.

You're 100 Pounds over Recommended Weight

While it's true that about 42% of the U.S. population is considered overweight, not everyone needs a weight loss program to follow. However, if you're more than 100 pounds over the recommended weight for your height and age, medical weight loss might be the best option for weight loss.

Other Diets and Weight Loss Methods Failed You

Are you at your wit's end because you've tried every diet under the sun, only to make minimal to no progress? Millions of other Americans are going through the same problems you're experiencing. At Nutrifi40, we work with many different patients, many of whom come to use exasperated because nothing they try works. You may be tempted to give up, but we encourage you to consider a medical weight loss clinic for help.

Normal Activities are Hard or Impossible

One of the most challenging aspects of being obese is that everyday life gets much more complicated. Yes, trying to fit into regular clothes is probably off the table, but so are ordinary things that require minimal effort. Simple tasks like carrying groceries from your car into your house are extremely difficult. Other activities, like walking upstairs in a friend's home, are out of the question.

You're Ready to Make a Change

Something has to change if you've been living with extra weight for a long time and you're sick and tired of living an unhealthy, unfulfilling life. Are you ready to heal your body and make fundamental changes? If you are, we've got great news - Nutrifit40 is prepared to be the partner you need to achieve your weight loss goals. The first step towards achieving a healthy weight and, by proxy, healthy life is to actually take that first step. If being fed up with how you look and feel is enough motivation to get started, pat yourself on the back. You're already making progress!

You Have Health Problems Due to Obesity

Medical weight loss is about much more than aesthetics or vanity. It's about preventing or reversing weight-related health issues that put your life at risk. Once you cross a certain threshold, it's hard to get off meds like cholesterol pills, but with medical weight loss, it's possible. If you have any of the following obesity-related health problems, you should consider Nutrifit40:

  • Metabolic Syndromes
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Pre-Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Physical Injuries from Being Heavy

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) for Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater rose 0.9 percent from January to March, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. (See table A.) Regional Commissioner Victoria G. Lee noted that the bi-monthly increase in the all items index was largely attributed to increases in the shelter and gasoline indexes. (Data in this report are not seasonally adjusted. Accordingly, bi-monthly changes may reflect the impact of seasonal influences.)

The all items CPI-U advanced 3.7 percent for the 12 months ending in March. (See chart 1 and table A.) The index for all items less food and energy rose 4.3 percent over the past year. The food index and the energy index also increased over the last 12 months, up 0.8 percent and 1.6 percent, respectively. (See table 1.)

Food

The food index declined 2.3 percent from January to March, reflecting decreases in the food at home (-2.1 percent) and food away from home (-2.6 percent) indexes. Within the food at home index, five of the six major grocery store food group indexes decreased over the bi-monthly period, including meats, poultry, fish, and eggs (-3.8 percent) and cereals and bakery products (-5.4 percent). The index for fruits and vegetables rose 1.6 percent from January to March.

Four of the six major grocery store food group indexes increased over the last 12 months, including fruits and vegetables (+2.7 percent) and nonalcoholic beverages and beverage materials (+2.4 percent) indexes. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs fell 2.5 percent over the past year, while the index for other food at home declined 0.4 percent.

Energy

The index for all items less food and energy advanced 4.3 percent for the 12 months ending in March. The index for shelter (+5.9 percent) was the largest contributor as owners’ equivalent rent (+5.5 percent) and rent of primary residence (+6.7 percent) continued to increase over the past year. The index for medical care also increased over the past year, up 6.4 percent.

The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Consumer Price Index for May 2024 is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, at 8:30 a.m. (ET).

Technical Note

The Consumer Price Index for Tampa is published bi-monthly. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change in prices over time in a fixed market basket of goods and services. The Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes CPIs for two population groups: (1) a CPI for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) which covers approximately 93 percent of the total U.S. population and (2) a CPI for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) which covers approximately 29 percent of the total U.S. population. The CPI-U includes, in addition to wage earners and clerical workers, groups such as professional, managerial, and technical workers, the self-employed, short-term workers, the unemployed, and retirees and others not in the labor force.

The CPI is based on prices of food, clothing, shelter, fuels, transportation fares, charges for doctors' and dentists' services, drugs, and the other goods and services that people buy for day-to-day living. Each month, prices are collected in 75 urban areas across the country from about 6,000 housing units and approximately 22,000 retail establishments—department stores, supermarkets, hospitals, filling stations, and other types of stores and service establishments. All taxes directly associated with the purchase and use of items are included in the index.

The index measures price changes from a designated reference date; for most of the CPI-U the reference base is 1982-84 equals 100. An increase of 7 percent from the reference base, for example, is shown as 107.000. Alternatively, that relationship can also be expressed as the price of a base period market basket of goods and services rising from $100 to $107. For further details see the CPI home page on the internet at www.bls.gov/cpi and the CPI section of the BLS Handbook of Methods available on the internet at www.bls.gov/opub/hom/cpi/.

In calculating the index, price changes for the various items in each location are averaged together with weights that represent their importance in the spending of the appropriate population group. Local data are then combined to obtain a U.S. city average. Because the sample size of a local area is smaller, the local area index is subject to substantially more sampling and other measurement error than the national index. In addition, local indexes are not adjusted for seasonal influences. As a result, local area indexes show greater volatility than the national index, although their long-term trends are quite similar. NOTE: Area indexes do not measure differences in the level of prices between cities; they only measure the average change in prices for each area since the base period.

The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL Core Based Statistical Area includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties.

What’s the story behind Sting playing with the Florida Orchestra again?

Sting just played a sold-out stadium show in Tampa with Billy Joel in February. But when the English musician takes the stage at St. Petersburg’s Mahaffey Theater next week, he’ll show Tampa Bay a whole other side.

During two benefit concerts, Sting will team up with the Florida Orchestra to play his most beloved songs, from “Englishman In New York” to “Fields of Gold.” The show on Thursday, May 9 is already sold out. Tickets are still available for the Friday, May 10 performance, with prices ranging from $100 to $1,500 for a spot in the front row.

Sting is no stranger to collaborating with orchestras. His 2010 album and concert film, “Sting…Live in Berlin,” features the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Since early 2023, he’s played shows with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony. And he has a history with the Florida Orchestra, playing at the 50th Anniversary Gala back in 2017.

So why is Sting coming back to St. Pete?

“He’s a highly cultured man,” said the Florida Orchestra’s musical director, Michael Francis, during a February phone interview. “He’s very interested in performance of songs by Renaissance composers. He’s really interested in orchestras and supporting the arts in general.”

Francis said conducting the orchestra during Sting’s 2017 performance was one of the most memorable concerts he’s been a part of. The Mahaffey fits about 1,900 patrons, providing an up close and personal experience.

“It’s really touching, and when you hear it coming across with the full violin section, or hearing some of the great melodies being blared out by our brass sections, these are exceptionally good arrangements,” Francis said. “It feels like it goes into a completely different technicolor. It’s a little bit like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz...It’s extremely emotional.”

If you go

An Intimate Evening with Sting takes place at 8 p.m. on May 9 and 10 at the Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S, St. Petersburg. Tickets are sold out for the first night, but still available for May 10. (727) 892-3337. floridaorchestra.org.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — The Tampa Bay Rays revealed their vibrant new City Connect uniforms inspired by skateboarding culture during an event at Tropicana Field Monday afternoon.

The team will wear the new uniform for the first time Friday and throughout the weekend, the Rays posted on social media.

After that, the uniforms will be worn at every Saturday home game, as well as two games on the road this summer — in Atlanta on June 15 and St. Louis on Aug. 7, according to MLB.com.

The team hosts a City Connect Celebration Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m., at the St. Pete Pier. The event includes a drone show, live music, food trucks, games, Rays’ merchandise, a live artist installation, a skateboarding demonstration and mascot appearances.

“Behold the bold,” the Rays wrote in a social media post about the new jerseys, which the team calls a combination of “daring individuality and vivid personality, all across the Bay.”

The cap’s new logo combines a sting ray with an image of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, “representing the connections across Tampa Bay’s communities,” the team wrote.

The jersey numbers and the cap’s underbill also mimic skateboarding grip tape texture. The texture of the uniform itself is designed to simulate “a black shirt that has been weathered in the Florida sun,” according to the Rays.

“Tampa Bay” is written across the jersey’s chest - for the first time since 2007 - in a style that pays homage to skate media, street art and underground culture.

Another image incorporated into the new uniform features three palm trees, a nod to the history marker sign at Perry Harvey Sr. Park in Tampa, home of the Bro Bowl, one of the first skate public skate parks in Florida, and a pelican, representing the St. Pete Pelicans, which played in the Florida State Negro League in the 1940s and 1950s.

The pants also feature a small image of a skateboarding stingray.

The city of St. Petersburg wrote in a social media post that the “new design reflects the true essence of the Tampa Bay community.”

“These are awesome. A very cool nod to Tampa history,” Tampa Mayor Jane Castor wrote on social media.
