A South Florida teenager who struggles with her weight of 295 pounds, Emma wants to transform from the “big girl” and find the self-confidence to participate in a plus-sized model fashion show. BistroMD provides Emma with weekly delivery of healthy and delicious weight loss meals as part of a comprehensive plan to help her achieve her weight loss goals.
Even small changes make a difference. The medical community agrees that environment and influences at a young age can help to determine the risk of obesity. Although only 19, Emma struggles with portion control, selection of healthy food choices and finding the will to exercise. Positive changes made even at Emma’s age of 19 can help to limit serious risk factors from obesity such as high blood sugar and diabetes for the rest of her life.
“Research shows that even a five percent weight loss is significant with regards to improving the health risks of being overweight and can result in lower blood pressure as well as healthier blood sugar readings. We are pleased to work with MTV’s MADE to help Emma achieve her healthy weight loss goal. So far she has lost over 55 pounds, nearly 20% of her start weight and this change will help her live a healthier life,” said Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., a bariatric physician and creator of BistroMD.
In addition to BistroMD meals, Emma also received free dietitian support from BistroMD, the help of a personal trainer as well as lessons from life coach, singer and actress Joanne Borgella. Even with the support, Emma struggles to find balance and distinction between the old patterns and behaviors and the “new Emma” who understands how to implement these tools. Check out her story in Season 11: Episode 30 of MTV’s hit show MADE, Plus Sized Model: Emma.
