Did you know that about 39% of adults worldwide are overweight? About 13% of those are in the “obese” range and at a very high risk for chronic conditions, diseases and a shorter lifespan. In the United States, the figures are actually worse than the global scale. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 39.8% of Americans are obese instead of just overweight. Globally, obesity affects 1 in 10 people, but in the U.S., it’s 1 in 3. Even children as young as 2 are in obese ranges, even though it’s just under 2%.
Many people know that it’s important to lose weight for their health. It’s one of the reasons why the most popular New Year’s resolutions each year are to lose weight by eating better and exercise more. Gyms and fitness centers have an incredible surge of clients at the start of the new year, and then experience a steep drop between February and March. Studies show that this is because about 80% of people have already quit pursuing their weight loss and health goals by mid-February. Out of 52 weeks in the year, most people already quit 6 weeks in despite the goals they have. However, studies show that people lose weight better, faster, and keep it off more successfully when they enlist the help of others in their weight loss goals.
Not losing weight? Your diet may be to blame. If you didn’t go to school for nutrition, then it can be hard to know exactly what type of diet you should have and if your nutrition is sufficient or not for good health. That’s why we offer our nutritional assessments to patients. We offer full blood testing for patients experiencing problems with weight loss or other aspects of their health. Blood testing will reveal deficiencies in diet and we can use that data to tell a patient exactly what they need to do to have a healthy diet.
With our blood testing, we also provide testing using electricity to paint a picture of what the fat deposits in your body look like. We can detect areas that could be a problem and suggest exercises to target those areas for effective weight loss. All throughout this testing and weight loss experience, we have counselors that check in with you every week to see how you are eating and how your weight goals are progressing. With a plan that is medically-tested to work with what your body needs, and the support of one of our professionals, you can actually achieve your weight-loss goals.
Our 30 Pounds in 30 Days Program will provide you with this medical assessment and consultation. We also do full blood work to see what you specifically have in your blood. An EKG will test your heart. Using all of these diagnostics, we can shape a plan to help you lose weight and have better health. It’s only $99.00 as well!
Many diets will focus on cutting out a specific food group (like carbs) from your diet in order to lose weight. However, this can actually make your health worse because you’re lacking a group of nutrients. A person needs carbs, proteins, fats, water, vitamins and minerals in their diet to be healthy. Cutting out just one of these areas quickly leads to dietary issues from nutrient deficiencies, which seriously hinders weight loss.
Your nutrition will be the most important if you want to lose weight and keep it off. Changes must be made to your diet to include lots of protein, veggies and fruits, plus whole grains and dairy to get the nutrients you need. Processed and greasy foods, fast foods, sugar-rich foods and similar items can make you gain weight and can make your health decline over time. Even simply having several sodas a day can lead to poor health because you’re filling up on sugar instead of nutrient-rich foods.
Some dietary issues from an improper diet include:
If you’re having these symptoms, it’s another reason to get a medical assessment.
Many know that diet and exercise are important. However, not everyone went to school to learn nutrition or exercise science. It can simply be hard to know what to do with your specific body type and to know what methods work for you! That’s why enlisting the help of a professional is so beneficial to you. If you’ve tried losing weight over and over, make a change for your health. Our professionals work with patients every single day with weight loss, changing their nutrition and getting better health.
Our therapies, treatments and counseling are all custom-fit to your body type, your goals and will incorporate your other health needs or conditions. You can’t get those benefits from a weight loss book or group fitness catered to the masses.
