Providing Medically Supervised Weight loss
According to the CDC in 2016, more than one-third of Americans are obese.
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes
and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.
The most common causes of obesity:
- Excessive carbohydrate intake
- Hormone imbalance
- Food allergies
- Side effects from medications
- Eating out of stress or depression
- Lack of exercise
We are in the midst of a serious obesity epidemic. At Kingwood Health and
Wellness we are trained in weight loss. As long standing members of the
Obesity Medicine Association (formerly known as the American Society of
Bariatric Physicians), we have been dedicated to helping the community
lose weight through diet, exercise, correcting underlying medical conditions
and the use of medications to help with hunger and behaviour modification.
A healthy weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week has been shown to be the most
effective. Losing weight is not easy. But even a modest 5-10% decrease
in weight reduction is likely to produce significant health benefits according
to the CDC. If you are serious about losing weight, call for your appointment today.
