Obesity is placing Americans on a crash course with sickness, disease and incapacitating health conditions. Statistics show that 7 out of 10 adults in the US are by definition “Overweight” and about 1 in 3 individuals fall into the category of “Clinically Obese”.
The majority of the patients I see in my office for weight loss are also dealing with either Type 2 Diabetes, Hypothyroidism or both. People who are dealing with a chronic weight problem are also heading fast towards heart disease, cancer and many other debilitating conditions.
The time to get your weight under control is now!
Learn how to keep yourself and your family from becoming one of these statistics. Learn how to reach your ideal weight and maintain it for the rest of your life.
You might feel hopeless. Like you have tried everything there is to try. You might even feel like you were simply born to be fat; you know, the “it’s-all-in-your-genes” excuse.
You have been losing the battle of the bulge for years, and you feel like the war is over — and you lost. It doesn’t have to be that way. You have the power to change this area of your life!
But no one can do it for you. The truth is, losing weight and maintaining your ideal weight for a lifetime is simple– but it’s not easy. And although there are many “tricks” to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight, gimmicks never work.
It seems like everyone has a book or infomercial about weight loss. They want you to buy this new piece of exercise equipment, that new cookbook or kitchen appliance, or some recently discovered miracle supplement that will allow you to “burn calories while you sleep”.
Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to maintaining an ideal weight. However, there are right and wrong ways to go about it and one thing is for certain: a sick body cannot and will not lose weight and keep it off.
Be aware that some of the issues that we deal with have to do not only with weight but with health as well. The brutal truth is that you cannot really control your weight until you begin to get healthy.
