The Path to Optimal Health is Weight Loss!
The statistics are alarming! Two thirds of the US population are overweight or obese. We live in an obesagenic society, which means that it is very easy to consume too many of the wrong calories which cause us to gain weight easily. Forty inches around the belly for men and 37 inches for women mean a whopping 300 percent increase in developing Type II Diabetes, getting heart disease, having a stroke, or getting certain cancers like breast and colon. If you really want good health, start by getting your weight under control. You just might be able to get off of some prescription drugs as well !
For years we have been wrongly told to avoid fats. This thinking spawned a whole new industry of "low fat" alternatives. Problem is, these low fat alternatives are full of sugar and carbohydrates. Especially bad is the high fructose corn syrup. Current research is showing that sugar and carbohydrates along with many grains are the real culprits that have caused the alarming increase in obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even some forms of cancer. The bottom line is this, don't rely on the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, or the Government to save you, you must save yourself.
Taking weight off safely and then keeping it off can be a daunting task. Americans spend billions of dollars annually on many types of diets and supplements. Unfortunately, almost 85 percent of people who loose weight put it all back on and then some. It is called the dreaded "yo-yo effect". Loosing weight can be so confusing that many people just plain give up. Even worse, I have known at least a dozen people that went thru stomach surgery and lost hundreds of pounds only to go back to poor eating habits and gain it back. A few have had very serious adverse effects from the surgery as well.
We get many patients who suffer from chronic back pain, hip pain, knee pain, and foot pain that is aggravated by trying to carry too much weight. Think about your spine and joints like the trusses that support your roof. If you start to pile too much snow on your roof the trusses will bend, then buckle, and finally break. Your skeleton can only handle so much weight before it buckles as well. You may have handled being overweight better when you were young, but as you get older and develop arthritis in the joints, bad things start to happen. Also that extra weight causes you to need things like cholesterol meds, blood pressure meds, anti inflammatory meds, and supports like canes and electronic scooters in stores.
We have a very effective weight loss program in our practice called Optavia. My daughter was my first client and it worked so well we rolled it out to our patients, family, and friends. The fact is that when you get your weight under control your quality of life improves dramatically. Less meds, less supplements, more energy, and better sleep are all possible.
Optavia offers a simple solution that is scientifically based and easy to do. You get your own personal health coach, tons of support, and since you have to eat anyway, it is cost neutral. You will learn how to take the weight off and keep it off by developing habits of health.
So ask yourself these 3 questions. What is your "why"...Why do you want to loose weight and get healthy? Can you be coached? Can you eat a small convenient meal every 2-3 hours that puts you into a fat burning state so that you can loose weight even if you can't exercise?
