Weight Loss & Nutrition Management Doctor

If you are like most people, you lead a fully-scheduled life, with barely enough time to eat, much less cook, well-balanced meals. There is a good chance that you find yourself in a fast-food drive-thru at least once a day, if not more, to eat meals that are ordered not by name, but with a number, with no fruits or vegetables in sight- besides the occasional lettuce and tomato found in burgers. It is time to make a permanent lifestyle change through our best weight loss & management plan.

What is the importance of NutRition?

Nutrition is crucial.  Without the most basic and necessary substances and nutrients, you would not be healthy.  Diet plays an incredibly important role in proper mental and physical development and the overall well-being of a person.

The human body is miraculous. Individuals must supply nutrients to their body in order to function and keep proper health. Eating a well-balanced, nutritious diet of proteins, fruits, vegetables and carbohydrates is pivotal to maintain your health.

A lack of essential vitamins and minerals obtained from a nutritious diet can lead to illness and disease, ultimately reducing an individual’s life expectancy. Health problems that can arise from improper/lack of nutrition are, but not limited to:

  • Metabolic Diseases, such as Type 2 Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Obesity (or on a milder level, being Overweight)
  • Gout
  • Osteoporosis

Obesity exacerbates all the health problems mentioned above. About two-thirds of Type-2 Diabetes and two-thirds of heart disease cases are directly linked to obesity.

What is Obesity?

Obesity is the term used to describe weighing 20% or more of a considered healthy weight for a person of his or her height.  Weight gain occurs when an individual consumes more food energy than his or her body can use. This measurement of excess weight is calculated by an individual’s Body Mass Index (BMI), a numerical representation of the relationship between the individual’s weight and height. Individuals with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese.  Obesity is a rapidly-growing epidemic causing a myriad of different health costs and concerns.
