Why is it so hard to maintain a healthy weight?

This simple question has a far more complex answer. Numerous things combine to make it hard to lose weight and maintain those results. If you’re like many people, you’ve probably tried various diet and exercise plans, only to see the weight return. 

The American food supply is part of the problem. Fast food is available in virtually every city and town in the nation, often around the clock. Grocery stores are stocked with highly processed food that offers little in the way of nutrients. 

Our modern lifestyles are also part of the problem. Many people spend a significant portion of each day behind various screens at home, at work, and in school. This leaves little time to get outside and stay active.

Finally, high stress levels and poor sleep quality are also part of the problem.    

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

An expansive body of research supports the link between carrying a significant amount of extra weight and a vast array of health problems. Being overweight or obese places an enormous toll on your organs and systems. 

Some of the health risks of being overweight or obese include:

  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis

These are just a few of the health problems that can develop when you are overweight. Many people also find themselves battling constant fatigue and body pains due to carrying excess weight. 

What happens during weight loss consults?

Medically supervised weight loss consults take an individualized approach to weight loss. During your visits, you explore your health history with your practitioner and discuss how you relate to food and nutrition in general.

You learn how to make meaningful lifestyle improvements that will help you not just shed extra weight, but also support your body at the most basic levels. For example, incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your daily diet provides the micronutrients your cells need to thrive. 

Getting the right amount of exercise is also vitally important. You don’t need to embark on an extreme exercise routine to see measurable results; even something as simple as adding a daily walk can help your body function more efficiently. 

Most importantly, any changes you make have to be sustainable. Anyone can stick to a fad diet or extreme exercise plan for a short period of time, but any results gained are likely to be equally short-lived. Learning how to make changes that become part of your normal routines is a great way to improve overall health and wellness.

When you’re ready to try a new approach to weight loss, call Real Nurturing Family Practice to schedule a visit. Online booking is also an option, and can be done from the comfort of home.
