Weight Management Q&A
What is weight management?
Weight management is a branch of health care designed to help people lose excess pounds and live a healthier lifestyle.
If you’re overweight, you’re more likely to experience serious health problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Maintaining a healthy weight can prevent these and other issues and improve your quality of life.
What services does weight management include?
At Mountainside Medical Clinic, Liban offers a full suite of weight management services, including:
The foods and beverages that you eat and drink directly affect your overall health. If your diet primarily consists of sugars, salt, and carbohydrates, you’re more likely to be overweight.
Liban recommends eating a healthy, balanced diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole-grains. Following a comprehensive exam and review of your health history, Liban can develop a custom diet that helps you lose weight and keep it off.
To burn calories, you need to stay physically active. No matter your level of physical fitness, Liban can develop an exercise plan that encourages weight loss. Depending on your unique needs, that might include weight lifting, cardiovascular exercise, or agility training.
Liban works with you to develop a safe and easy exercise regimen. As you make progress, he adjusts the plan, ensuring you continue to make progress.
In some cases, diet and exercise aren’t enough to help you lose weight and keep it off. There are several types of medication designed to help with weight loss. Some suppress your appetite and others increase your metabolism.
Following a physical exam, a review of your health history, and a discussion of your goals, Liban can make recommendations that align with your needs.
Is weight management right for me?
Anyone who struggles to maintain a healthy weight can benefit from weight management. This applies even if you’re only five or 10 pounds over your ideal target.
Minimizing your waistline has beneficial effects on every aspect of your health. If you achieve your ideal weight, you’re less likely to experience joint pain, heart disease, or low self-esteem.
