If you’re overweight or obese, you’re also more likely to experience chronic health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Carrying around excess pounds also puts your joints and musculoskeletal system under duress, increasing your risk for osteoarthritis and plantar fasciitis.
In addition, your weight can negatively affect your mental health. Studies show that people who are overweight are also more likely to experience feelings of depression and anxiety.
Weight loss is important because it can significantly improve your quality of life. Losing even just a few pounds can reduce weight-bearing pressure on your joints, improve your circulation, and make it easier to breathe during physical activities like playing sports or exercising.
At Optimal Men’s Center, Mr. Knight offers a variety of weight loss services, including:
Many people who are overweight try yo-yo dieting and other fads without achieving their desired results. It’s important to remember that weight loss requires time and dedication. Therefore, it’s important to adjust your lifestyle for the long-term.
Lifestyle coaching provides a custom weight loss plan specifically tailored to your needs. It provides advice on eating healthy, exercising regularly, managing stress levels, and getting plenty of sleep. When combined, these factors can help you shed pounds and keep them off.
Sometimes healthy lifestyle changes aren’t enough to help you lose weight. If you have a slow metabolism or another underlying health problem, it can be difficult to reach your goals. Medically assisted weight loss uses prescription medication or peptide therapy to assist your journey. Some medications speed up your metabolism and others suppress your appetite.
Following a physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your treatment goals, the team can recommend a prescription medication that aligns with your needs.
The foods and beverages you eat and drink directly affect your weight and health. Nutritional counseling provides education on eating a healthy, balanced diet. That includes recipe recommendations, calorie counting tips, regularly scheduled mealtimes, and portion control.
Anyone who is overweight can benefit from weight loss. When you’re at your ideal weight, you’ll feel healthier, have more energy, and be less likely to experience potentially serious health problems.
