Weight Loss Q&A

How does being overweight or obese affect my health?

Carrying too much weight can increase your risk of specific health problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • High cholesterol and triglycerides

Reduce your risk of developing these conditions, or minimize their symptoms by losing even just 5-10% of your current body weight.

Why is weight loss hard to achieve on my own?

Magazines, gyms, and infomercials make it sound easy to lose weight with their one-size-fits-all plan. All you have to do, they claim, is eat fewer calories than you burn (often with their special supplements and food choices). 

Caloric deficits are a part of weight loss, but not the only part. Research shows that hormonal imbalances, genetics, and environmental conditions, as well as cultural, socioeconomic, and psychological factors, contribute to your weight.

Increasingly, evidence suggests that losing weight doesn’t just come down to willpower. Your weight is a complex. To gain control, it sometimes requires appetite regulation and energy metabolism with the help of medical intervention. This is where the team at the Medical Associates of North Texas can help.

What are the benefits of a medical weight loss program?

You know losing weight improves your health, energy, and self-esteem. Achieving a normal weight can prevent chronic disease from setting in or reduce the severity of chronic disease if one occurs.

As a primary care practice, Medical Associates of North Texas supports your overall health and well-being. Without the use of pharmaceuticals, the professional team can help you lose weight with customized recommendations and support.

The doctors can also help you manage chronic conditions along the way, especially if these conditions contribute to your being overweight. For example, they can balance your thyroid levels or help guide you toward exercise that is appropriate for your heart condition.

Medical weight loss programs provided by Medical Associates of North Texas also fosters an environment of support and accountability. This helps you lose weight despite the stress, plateaus, and challenges that occasionally arise.

If you’re ready to optimize your health with weight loss and quality living, call Medical Associates of North Texas or book a consultation online.
