TOLEDO CHRONICLE - Experiencing her own health issues steered Kim Hanken to her position as the weight loss counselor in the new Seale Harris M.D. Lite for Life Consulting and Food Market inside the Medicap Pharmacy in Toledo.

“Feeling as healthy as I do now, I know it can be done with this program,” she said last week.

A grand opening is planned for the new facility at Medicap, 108 2nd Ave. West, March 22-27. Complete information about the program and the associated products will be featured.

“The great thing about this program is a client can work one on one with me. They can come in as many times as necessary, without an appointment,” Hanken said. “They can actually have someone to be with every step of the way.”

Hanken is on duty Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. and on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. She is also availbale by appointment.

She said Medicap owners Tim and Karla Madsen sought out to provide such an offering in their pharmacy.

“If you follow the program closely, you can lose up to 15 pounds in eight weeks, “ she said. An initial consultation is provided for free.

The program recognizes many things are related to blood sugar issues, Hanken said. Lite for Life involves “how to select the right foods, whole foods, and timing of foods,” she said. The foods featured include protein drinks and natural supplements.

Participants do not have to purchase the food brands offered to take part in the program she said.

Hanen took training in San Francisco to become a Seale Harris M.D. Lite for Life counselor. The program was founded there in the 1920s.
