Weight Loss Q & A
“What is obesity?”
Obese men and women have too much body fat for their size and body type. However, the way that people get their calories varies and depends on genetics, lifestyle, and diet.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a tool used to measure body fat and determine if you are overweight or obese. A person with a BMI between 25 and 29 is overweight, whereas someone with a BMI of 30 or higher is obese. BMI is just one screening tool your doctor uses to assess your weight and health. They also consider your health history, genetic factors, and symptoms or health problems to determine if weight loss is right for you.
“What are the health complications of obesity?”
Being overweight changes your appearance and how you look and feel in your skin. But it’s much more than an aesthetic issue. Obesity leads to a lot of severe health problems:
- Body pain
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Limited mobility
- Sleep apnea
- Type 2 diabetes
Obesity also impacts your emotional well-being: Overweight people are more likely to develop anxiety and depression. Fortunately, most of these conditions are reversible with a safe, effective weight loss plan.
“What is medical weight loss?”
Your doctor supervises and creates your medical weight loss strategy, making it different than any other diet plan. Rather than promise results with a magic pill or shake, medical weight loss works because it addresses every part of your life:
- Physical ability
- Dietary needs
- Emotional well-being
- Health concerns
- Weight loss goals
Your customized weight loss plan includes:
- Behavior therapy: to change unhealthy patterns
- Diet plan: based on the foods you enjoy
- Exercise: programs tailored to your ability and interests
- Nutritional supplements: to reduce appetite and boost weight loss
It’s never too late to lose weight and feel great. Many products promise quick and easy weight loss, but the truth is that real and lasting results happen with hard work and a smart plan.
