What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Few things are more dangerous to your health and wellness than carrying a significant volume of extra weight. In fact, it’s difficult to overstate how risky it is to be overweight or obese.

Some of the health issues researchers link to being overweight or obese include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Gallbladder disease

Virtually every organ and system in your body is negatively affected when you are carrying extra weight.

Why is weight management so challenging?

Many different factors make it difficult to reach and maintain a healthy weight. The American food supply is a big part of the problem. Fast food is cheap and available nearly around the clock. Grocery stores are filled with highly processed foods, often with confusing labeling.

The modern American lifestyle is also problematic. Many people spend most of their day in front of various screens for school, work, and recreation. This leaves precious few hours for getting outside and staying active. Poor sleep quality and high-stress levels make matters even worse.

What has become clear in recent years is that weight management is more complex than a simple “calories in, calories out” equation.

How is professional weight management different?

Professional weight management places your health as the central focus. You’ll work with a team of professionals who help you set healthy weight goals and make progress toward those goals.

Medication might play a role in your treatment plan, but drug therapy is never the only approach. Your practitioner works with you to find ways to incorporate positive lifestyle changes into your daily routines. You’ll learn to replace highly processed or nutritionally void foods with fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Getting more physical activity into your daily routines is also important.

Even the most positive changes mean nothing if they aren’t sustainable. Your practitioner helps you embrace new habits while focusing on all the improvements with even modest weight loss.
