Weight Loss Q & A

Why do I need to lose weight?

Obesity is a leading cause of some of the most serious health conditions you can have, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gallstones

Obesity puts a considerable strain on your musculoskeletal system — your bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissues. It also stresses your internal organs, affecting every aspect of your health and well-being.

If you’re obese, it means you’re severely overweight, but even being a little overweight can affect your health. Losing weight is the most effective way to improve your health and increase your chances of leading a long life.

What method do you use to determine that I’m overweight or obese?

The standard for measuring how overweight you are is called the body mass index (BMI). Using a BMI calculator, your provider at Premier Medical Care can work out your score by entering your current height and weight.

A BMI score between 25 and 29.9 means you’re overweight and need to take action. If your BMI score is 30 or over, your risk of developing serious health problems is very high.

This is a useful guide, but it’s important to get a thorough health assessment at Premier Medical Care. Your provider can take into account your body type and check for any underlying health problems that could affect your ability to lose weight.

What’s the best approach to weight loss?

Unfortunately, there’s no quick and easy answer to successful weight loss, despite what the advertising world would have you believe. The way to lose weight healthily and keep it off is to consume fewer calories when you eat and drink, and work off calories by exercising regularly.

Premier Medical Care provides information and resources to help you succeed with weight loss. They run weight loss classes and design a personalized weight loss program around your individual requirements.

Weight loss plans achieve results with a proven combination of:

  • Healthy eating plans
  • Dietary supplements
  • Exercise strategies
  • Medication when needed

Premier Medical Care also has specialized expertise in plant-based nutrition, which is a highly effective method of losing weight.

Although weight loss can be a challenge, the rewards are huge, both physically and emotionally. By following a diet program at Premier Medical Care you can be sure that a medical professional is keeping a close eye on your health. That means more effective weight loss, plus no risk of adverse effects on your health.

If you need to lose weight, you’re more likely to succeed with professional help. Call Premier Medical Care today or book an appointment online to find out how their weight loss program can help you shed the pounds.
