Medical Weight Loss
What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?
Carrying a significant amount of extra weight is detrimental to virtually every organ and system of your body. It’s difficult to overstate the risks you face when you struggle with excess weight.
Some of the health risks associated with being overweight or obese include an elevated risk of:
- Heart disease
- Sleep apnea
- Kidney disease
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sexual dysfunction
This is far from a comprehensive list. Being overweight or obese is incredibly detrimental to your health.
Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?
There are many different reasons why obesity has become an epidemic. Part of the problem lies in nearly immediate access to highly processed and nutritionally void food. With fast food on virtually every corner and grocery store aisles filled with unhealthy options, it comes as no surprise that Americans are heavier than at any other time in recorded history.
The modern American lifestyle is also partly to blame. More time spent in front of screens at home and at work leaves little time for getting fresh air and exercise.
Fad diets and weight loss scams also complicate matters. For many, true weight loss feels like an unattainable goal.
How is medical weight loss different?
Medical weight loss takes a different approach, one that places your health at the center of the process. Dr. Ali creates a customized plan that aligns with your unique needs and goals.
A personalized nutrition plan is part of the process. As you learn how to feed your body what it needs to thrive, weight loss will come naturally.
Dr. Ali also crafts an exercise plan to incorporate more movement into your daily routines. Finding a way to embrace a more active lifestyle is an integral part of healthy weight loss.
If you need additional help, Dr. Ali will discuss how supplements, IV hydration, and nutrient injections can help you as you move closer to your ideal weight. That process begins with a quick phone call or a visit to the online scheduling page to set up your initial appointment.
