Weight loss can be a challenge in many people's lives—including that of Dr. Eric Spencer. After shedding 40 of his own unwanted pounds, he founded Monarch Medical Weight Loss with a team of fellow doctors and now serves as chief medical advisor of the nonsurgical clinic system. Many of the practitioners and staffers have triumphed at their own slimming efforts, serving as both inspiration and role models to their patients. The diet programs at Monarch Medical Weight Loss range from quick jump-start plans to full, lifelong memberships, all incorporating healthy, educated eating and sensible behavior modification. Pound-dropping success stories can be found on the website, as told by firefighters, grandmothers, couples, and retired dumbbells.
Dr. Jerry Evans leads a caring crew at Evans Chiropractic Group, drawing from more than 20 years of experience dekinking vertebrae to finesse skeletal structures ailing from work injuries, sports-induced aches, and everyday boo-boos. Spreading the treatments over two visits, the initial session begins with a consultation to discuss problems and pains before the chiropractic exam realigns spines and unspools tightly wound physiques like a yo-yo running away from its shadow. The second appointment provides time to converse about the doctor's findings as well as develop a pain-management game plan, if necessary. A 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage concludes the healing meeting as a trained muscle kneader loosens limbs and fluffs bone cushions for a pillowy soft feel.
At Drunken Hog BBQ, all sauces are made in house from scratch, including the tomatillo beer sauce of the smoked pork and the honey chipotle that marinates chicken in a smoky-sweet flavor without dipping it in caramel-coated ashes. Meats seared on the barbecue, such as spareribs, pork, and chicken, complement a quartet of sauces, including the original barbecue and cilantro-lime. Kids’ meals sate appetites of age-deficient members of the family by feeding them proportioned amounts of mac ‘n’ cheese or drumsticks.
