Who is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss in Tampa, 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

Tom Brady Is Forced to Choose Between Tampa Bay and New England in New Ads — See His Reaction!

Tom Brady was asked the ultimate question: to pick between his two former NFL teams, the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Brady, 46, famously won six Super Bowls with the Patriots before leaving the team in 2020 to sign with the Buccaneers, but the retired quarterback has remained positive about his relationship with New England since his departure....

Tom Brady was asked the ultimate question: to pick between his two former NFL teams, the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady, 46, famously won six Super Bowls with the Patriots before leaving the team in 2020 to sign with the Buccaneers, but the retired quarterback has remained positive about his relationship with New England since his departure.

“Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments,” he said of the Patriots on Instagram at the time.

Now, Brady, who won a seventh Super Bowl for Tampa Bay in 2021, is starring in a slate of new commercials for his partnership with Hertz and was asked to choose between his former organizations.

In the ad, Brady is playing a "lightning round" of questions with a fictional game show host (played by Yvonne Orji) about the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership program, which allows members to skip lines, pick any car in the aisle and earn points on future rentals.

Tom Brady Tears Up as He Talks About Decision to Leave the Patriots: 'Life Is Very Imperfect' (Exclusive)

Brady nails the lightning round questions about Hertz' membership program as the crowd goes crazy in the commercial, before being asked, "Alright round two, Tampa Bay or New England?"

The retired NFL star was taken by surprise with the question, and coyly says, "Whaaat?" without picking between the teams.

In a second spot for Hertz, Brady takes on the role of a sideline reporter "trying to track down" a customer at one of the rental company's locations.

"Looks like I just missed her," Brady says, explaining that there was "no waiting in line for" the Hertz member thanks to the loyalty program.

Speaking on the new ads, Brady tells PEOPLE he's "excited to continue the partnership with Hertz and kick off our new spots for the Let’s Go! campaign."

Calling himself "a constant traveler," the soon-to-be NFL broadcaster says Hertz has "been so helpful in creating special memories for my family’s road trip adventures together.”

Tom Brady Admits He Was 'Winging It' When He First Became a Dad: 'You Get Better as a Parent'

Before starring in the Hertz ads, Brady opened up about the details of his departure from the Patriots for the 10-part Apple TV+ series, The Dynasty: New England Patriots, alongside former Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

Kraft, 82, recalled the moment when Brady "walked into the room" and said, "I've decided to move on," during his confessional interview for the series.

"And as soon as he said it, he started crying," Kraft shared, adding, "And his crying told me everything I needed to know."

Brady told viewers, "Life is very imperfect, and relationships are imperfect, but I'm very proud of our journey," as he shed tears. "It was hard, but, um, but it was great."

TAMPA, Fla. - A Tampa restaurant is getting national attention by being named one of the top places to have brunch in 2024, according to Yelp.

Psomi earned the ninth spot on Yelp’s Top 100 Brunch Spots 2024 and is one of two Bay Area restaurants to make the list.

The upscale Greek restaurant, which literally means ‘bread,’ opened in 2019.

According to Psomi’s website, chef and owner Christina Theofilos is a second-generation Greek who was born and raised in Tampa.

She says the restaurant is a true family effort and each dish is "thoughtfully curated, tweaked, and elevated in order to showcase my appreciation and passion for my family and Greek heritage."

Theofilos won the 2023 Michelin Young Chef Award and is a rising culinary star. Psomi also earned Michelin Bib Gourmand status.

According to Yelp, the most popular/most photographed dishes at Psomi are Bougatsa French toast (Greek custard-stuffed brioche), pork gyro, bread basket, chicken souvlaki, and grilled octopus horiatiki.

Across the Bay, Noble Crust in St. Petersburg took the 48th spot.

Toasted Gastrobrunch in Las Vegas was named as the top brunch spot in America.

While Psomi and Noble Crust are the only Bay Area restaurants to make the list, several other Florida eateries made the list:

To determine the best brunch spots, Yelp identified businesses in the ‘Breakfast and Brunch’ category with numerous reviews that mention ‘brunch’ and ‘Mother’s Day’ and ranked those spots using several different factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning those keywords in the past 3 years.

If a business with multiple locations was on the list more than once, Yelp only included the highest-rated location. TYelp states it limited the number of businesses per state per geographic diversity.

Yelps adds that, when available, all businesses on the list needed to have a passing health score as of February 2024.

Stamkos, Lightning begin talks on new contract

TAMPA -- Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning have begun preliminary discussions on a new contract, and the captain is hopeful he will remain with the only NHL team he’s ever played for."I had a short conversation with [Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois] after [Game 5]; he reached out to my agent," Stamkos said at Tampa Bay’s locker cleanout day Wednesday.

TAMPA -- Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning have begun preliminary discussions on a new contract, and the captain is hopeful he will remain with the only NHL team he’s ever played for.

"I had a short conversation with [Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois] after [Game 5]; he reached out to my agent," Stamkos said at Tampa Bay’s locker cleanout day Wednesday. "That's all that we have right now, but for sure hopefully there's some discussions and you have to start somewhere, so I'm looking forward to that."

Stamkos can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The 34-year-old forward signed an eight-year, $68 million contract ($8.5 million average annual value) on June 29, 2016. BriseBois and Stamkos met after they arrived back in Tampa following a season-ending 6-1 loss at the Florida Panthers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Monday.

BriseBois said signing Stamkos to a new contract is “obviously a priority” for the Lightning, who selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NHL Draft.

"Obviously, Steven Stamkos needs a contract and we want him part of that group,” BriseBois said. " … I am very hopeful.”

Following the loss at Amerant Bank Arena on Monday, Stamkos said he had not yet thought about his future, but Wednesday he said that he would like to continue his career with Tampa Bay, which he has helped win the Stanley Cup twice (2020, 2021).

"At the end of the day, winning is still what fuels me,” Stamkos said. “Being a big part of that culture fuels me. Obviously, certain things have changed now; I have an amazing young family that has put roots down in this city and really enjoy living here and playing here. From that perspective the decision is more than just me now, and that's something that is amazing for me to have that and be in that situation.

“There's different factors than there were last time, but nothing's really changed in terms of my mindset and where I wanted to be and play, and that was here. So, that certainly hasn't changed.”

Stamkos led the Lightning with five goals in the first-round series against the Panthers, and finished the regular season with 28 points (16 goals, 12 assists) in the final 18 games after the NHL Trade Deadline on March 8 to help Tampa Bay earn the first wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.

He has 1,137 points (555 goals, 582 assists) in 1,082 games over 16 seasons, all with the Lightning. He twice won the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy for most goals in a season (51 in 2009-10, and 60 in 2011-12).

Stamkos has been Lightning captain since March 6, 2014.

“You all saw how from the trade deadline on ‘Stammer’ elevated his level of play, which was incredible to see,” BriseBois said. “For someone who you can say has already earned his Hall of Fame plaque, has accomplished so much already, and has accomplished so much for so long, for him to play arguably his best two months of hockey of his career ... for him to do that at the time when our team needed it most was incredible.”

Stamkos expressed frustration last offseason that a new contract hadn’t been reached, then responded with an 81-point season (40 goals, 41 assists) in 79 games. It was the seventh time he scored at least 40 goals.

"When you don't have control of the situation, you just have to come to terms with that," Stamkos said. "For sure, there were times throughout the year you think about those things in private conversations with friends and family and mentors and things like that, but for me, I tried to leave that at home and when I came to the rink it never crossed my mind.

"That was something that I told Julien at the beginning of the year when we said there was going to be no contract talks. You won't have to worry about that affecting how I prepare, how I play or that coming into the locker room. I said what I needed to say at the beginning of the year and that was kind of it."

BriseBois said Stamkos' leadership was on display all season, especially down the stretch when he helped the Lightning qualify for the playoffs for the seventh straight season.

"You were all able to see how he led on the ice, [but] what's harder to see is how he elevated his leadership game off the ice,” BriseBois said. “Last summer, for various reasons, a lot of leadership left our team and nobody in our group raised their leadership game more than Steven Stamkos did to fill that void. We have a saying in our organization, 'We strive for excellence with humility.' Steven Stamkos has always represented excellence with humility, and never more than these past few months.

“The aim is for him to continue to play on a contending Tampa Bay Lightning team going forward."

BriseBois said he’d also like to sign defenseman Victor Hedman to a new contract. The 33-year-old has one season remaining on the eight-year, $63 million contract ($7.85 million AAV) he signed July 1, 2016.

Hedman had 76 points (13 goals, 63 assists) in 78 games this season while averaging 24:48 of ice time. BriseBois said talks have started with Hedman and his agent.

"I talked to his agent yesterday, just very preliminary,” the GM said. “We're going to circle back once we've had time to debrief here, but obviously we'd love to keep Victor going forward. He's an elite, elite defenseman. He's one of those special all-time players, all-time great Tampa Bay Lightning bolt who's still super productive, and I have no reason to believe that's not going to be the case going forward."

Hedman, the No. 2 pick by the Lightning at the 2009 NHL Draft, has 728 points (156 goals, 572 assists) in 1,052 games, all with Tampa Bay.

"We've been here from Day One,” Hedman said. “I've been here for almost half my life, and I can't picture anything else. But it's a process, it's a business. Moving forward here, my thought process is on next season and hopefully I won't be in the same position as Steven, but you never know.

“Hopefully we can get something done in the summer. My plan is to retire as a Bolt, and I hope it can come true."

A crucial piece of infrastructure has helped prevent devastating flooding in Tampa for 50+ years

TAMPA, Fla. — For more than 55 years now, the Tampa Bypass Canal System has been helping mitigate river flooding during severe rain events and hurricanes, preventing serious damage to homes and businesses along the Hillsborough River in Temple Terrace and Tampa.

Ahead of hurricane season, 10 Tampa Bay got a behind-the-scenes look at the largest of the 84 structures (S-160) the Southwest Florida Water Management District operates and maintains around the clock. Over the past few months, crews have been monitoring them.

“Right now the structure is in fantastic shape, well maintained, and operationally well,” Jerry Mallams, SWFWMD’s operations bureau chief, said.

When launched into action, Tampa’s Bypass Canal System, made up of five flood control structures, can safely divert billions of gallons of water from the river into McKay Bay. It's one of the first lines of defense when a hurricane or major storm hits the Tampa area.

“There's a lot of urbanization nested up very, very close to this river. So when this river comes out of its banks, it can cause a lot of damage,” Mallams explained.

The system was constructed after Hurricane Donna in 1960 caused devastating flooding in the area. When it was first built, engineers operated it out of an on-site control room built to withstand Category 5 hurricanes. Now, new tech controls it remotely.

“We have technology that is able to allow us not only to monitor the water levels to see when we have to activate but it allows us to move all those gates remotely anyplace in the world as long as we have access to the internet,” Mallams said.

Due to its age and changes to water levels, with matching grant funding from the state, more than $2 million in upgrades are underway to keep the crucial piece of infrastructure fit for the future.

“These two projects will make sure the structure is resilient for future sea level conditions, and that it continues to provide flood protection benefits to the cities of Tampa and Temple Terrance for decades to come,” Mallams added.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Steven Stamkos wants to hoist the Stanley Cup again with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 34-year-old captain, who can become a free agent this summer, reiterated Wednesday that he’d like to remain with the only franchise he’s played for in a stellar 16-season career.

And, general manager Julien BriseBois said the club definitely wants him back, adding he’s already spoken with Stamkos and the player's agent to begin discussions in the aftermath of Tampa Bay’s loss to the Florida Panthers in the first round of the NHL playoffs.

“From the trade deadline on, he elevated his level of play, which was incredible to see,” BriseBois said.

“For someone who you can say has already earned his Hall of Fame plaque and has accomplished so much for so long — for him to play arguably the best two months of hockey of his career at a time when our team needed it most was incredible.”

Stamkos is the Lightning’s career leader in points (1,137) and goals (555), a seven-time All-Star and a two-time winner of the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the league’s leading goal-scorer.

He expressed frustration at not receiving a contract extension last summer, then went out and delivered the seventh 40-goal season of his career.

The No. 1 overall pick from the 2008 draft was especially effective down the stretch with 28 points (16 goals, 12 assists) after March 8 to help the Lightning overcome a slow start and key injuries to make the playoffs.

“It was harder for us this year to get into the playoffs, but they found a way. … From the midpoint of the year, which was Jan. 8 through April 5, when we clinched a playoff spot, we actually had the third-best record in the NHL,” BriseBois said.

“That, plus the players that are under contract, give me every reason to believe we’re going to be highly competitive again next year,” the GM added. “We want (Stamkos) to be part of that group.”

Stamkos, who helped the Lightning win consecutive Stanley Cup titles in 2020 and 2021, finished with 40 goals and 41 assists in 79 games this season.

He scored five goals during Tampa Bay’s first-round playoff loss to the Panthers, becoming the third player in franchise history to reach 100 postseason points.

Despite losing in the opening round of the playoffs for the second straight year, Stamkos is confident the Lightning are not far away from contending for another Stanley Cup title.

“I think the window’s certainly open when you have some of the premier players at every position,” Stamkos said. “You look at all the teams that have won the Cup in the last five years, and we talk about really good defensemen, an elite goalie and elite forwards.’’

Coach Jon Cooper agrees the Lightning, who made three consecutive appearances in the Stanley Cup Final from 2020-22, remain a formidable team.

“We’re still a good team, but everybody else is trying to find a way to improve as well, and they have a say in what you’re going. But I think our standard and how we’ve gone about our business in the league is still exceptional,” Cooper said.

“What we’ve done is create our own monster. We created a reputation of expectation that for a decade has been of excellence,” the coach added. “It’s still excellence, it’s just we haven’t won the championship in the last couple of years. … So people think: ‘well, what happened?’ But we’re still knocking on the door.”
