Why is weight loss so challenging?

If you’ve tried to lose weight in the past but haven’t been successful, you aren’t alone. In today’s market, grocery stores are filled with highly processed foods that do little to meet your nutritional needs and can cause weight gain. The convenience of fast food on every corner also plays a role.

In addition, most people spend most of their time in front of a computer — whether it’s for work, school, or even recreation. A sedentary lifestyle makes moving your body and getting exercise more challenging. It can also distract from eating a healthy diet.

What health issues can weight loss prevent?

If you carry excess weight on your body, finding the right weight loss option can help you avoid health issues and benefit you in many ways.

When you achieve a healthy weight range, you can prevent chronic health issues, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Respiratory issues

Though it sounds daunting, overweight and obese individuals have a higher risk of early death when compared to those who maintain a healthy weight. The good news is you can take proactive steps to reduce these harmful health risks.

What can I expect during my weight loss process?

The team of Marina OB/GYN practitioners understands the challenges of weight loss and its maintenance. When visiting the office to consult with your provider about weight loss options, they learn about your medical history and discuss your goals and any health concerns you might have.

Your practitioner customizes your weight loss plan according to your lifestyle and individual needs. They also walk beside you throughout your weight loss journey and during the maintenance stage.

Whether you have a health condition that worsens with obesity or seek to improve your overall health, weight loss can benefit you. When partnering with the experts at Marina OB/GYN, you can expect your weight loss plan to provide lifelong healthy, and sustainable habits.
