We have designed a program for patients who have developed a subconscious food obsession and who have been unsuccessful at achieving or maintaining an ideal body weight. It is essential that the patient understand that our comprehensive program will be administered as a whole, not just as a drug therapy. It has many vital components including:
- Counseling, which is the underlying success factor
- Low to moderate exercise
- Diet modification
- Prescription appetite suppressants
- Pharmaceutical grade supplements and vitamins
- Holistics Weight Loss
with Core Restore – Detox
and Neo Replace – Life Core Complex
Weekly one-on-one visits, nutritional counseling, and the accountability factor are essential to our program’s success. We provide the necessary tools, support, and assistance designed to modify behavior for a healthy lifestyle.
We will be teaching our patients to lose weight the wise way, with a low-to-moderate exercise program designed to enhance weight loss naturally. In addition to losing weight, the benefits of daily exercise include lower cholesterol levels, improved cardiac function, and improved overall health, well-being, and quality of life. Our number one priority is to help you reach your goal weight as quickly and as safely as possible.
Take the Body Mass Index Test
Body mass index (BMI), is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity among adults (age 20 years and over).
The table below has already done the math and metric conversions. To use the table, find the appropriate height (inches) in the left-hand column. Move across the row to the given weight. The number at the top of the column is the BMI for that height and weight.
Your BMI Score:
- 18.5 – 24.9 This is a healthy weight range for most adults. It represents the lowest level of risk for heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.
- 25 – 29.9 This range is considered overweight for most adults and poses an added health risks. Exceptions to this group are adults who are extra muscular or possess a large skeletal frame. According to the CDC, 34.3% of adults are overweight (BMI range 25-29.9).
- >30 Obesity among American adults occurs in about 30% of the population. According to the CDC, more than one-third of U.S. adults were obese in 2005-2006. This includes 33.3% of men and 35.3% of women.
