Live Light Live Right is happy to share with you the great recipes from the East New York Farms new cookbook.
Live Light Live Right has many families we have worked with over the years. Here are three inspirational stories to watch.
Niche Bryant is 15 years old and is doing so amazing in the Live Light Live Right program under the supervision of Dr. Dhupher. These two photos represent the incredible change in Niche from when he began the program from 2015 to 2019. Niche loves to participate in the exercise programs and including the special events. When Niche started in the program he was not interested in attending any of the special events. His mother always encouraged him and explained all the benefits to his health and wellbeing. His mom no longer as to ask him to go to events or any of the programs. His self-esteem is up to the roof and she is so proud of him. He walks with confidence now. It is working!! His blood pressure and stamina have improved. Niche is now top two of his gym class for most laps run in the physical test. When he started high school in September of 2017 something really clicked. He wanted to do better. He now strives both physically and academically. Niche is in the honors program maintaining a 90 average. I know it has everything to do with feeling better about himself. His parents cannot take credit for Niche’s success because Niche works hard at everything he does. Niche does not have any snacks or fast food on the weekdays and also himself one cheat day. His parents are very appreciative to all the staff including, Dr. Dhuper for treating Niche like he is one of her own children, Ms. Rena, for always making sure Niche has all his appointments and knows about all the events, Ms. Ebony for always making sure Niche is doing proper exercises and always encouraging him, and Ms. Kim, for always keeping Niche on his toes.

While we all enjoyed Super Bowl and look forward to it every year, Live Light Live Right is concerned about some recent scientific finding affecting these competitive athletes. This article in the New York Times highlights the major risk that former NFL lineman who have bulked up in order to be competitive Quarterbacks, now face related to obesity.
The consequences can be dire. A study published in The American Journal of Medicine found that for every 10 pounds football players gained from high school to college, or from college to the professional level, the risk of heart disease rose 14 percent compared with players whose weight changed little during the same period.
They are also at risk for Sleep Apnea, Diabetes, chronic pain, and injuries. It is very hard for these once strong men to face these disabilities and to lose enough weight to improve their health. The body fights back and holds on to the fat stores
We at Live Light Live Right understand that Obesity is a chronic debilitating disease and evaluate athletes and youth at risk for obesity or who are already obese. Our 4 part model offers them a comprehensive medical evaluation including cardiac evaluation with an exercise stress test if necessary, work up for risk factors which are present as early as 10 years of age and a lifestyle program including nutritional guidance and a supervised exercise program.
We emphasize fitness as a goal and avoidance of weight gain as once obesity sets in the complications continue to progress and are difficult to reverse.
For more information or for an obesity evaluation please contact Dr. Dhuper’s office or the Live Light Live Right program at 718-221-1598.
