Weight Loss Q & A
How can weight loss help me?
If you’re obese or overweight, you could be at risk for certain health issues that include:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- Heart attack
- Sleep apnea
When you’re overweight, you’re also more susceptible to struggling with mental issues, such as depression. Losing extra pounds can help your overall health considerably.
The team at Battlefield Family Medicine & Weight Management can get you started so you can experience your best life.
Am I a candidate for weight loss?
To find out if you’re a candidate for weight loss, your specialist measures your body mass index (BMI), which helps determine the health of your body based on its proportion to your age, sex, and height.
You want your number to land below 25. If your numbers are between 25 and 29.9, you’re considered overweight. A number of 30 or above suggests you’re obese.
Before your weight loss program begins, the team consults with you to learn your lifestyle routine and get to know you. They also perform a physical exam to understand the condition of your health.
How does a weight loss program work?
The Adipex program has three keys to weight loss to kickstart your new healthier life: diet, exercise, and the Adipex-P prescription appetite suppressant.
- What gets measured gets managed. We provide a diary along with a detailed menu to help you keep track of your habits, empowering you to make long-term changes.
- Adipex-P as an Appetite Suppressant: Breakthrough to your weight loss goals with this powerful appetite suppressant. Please see adipex.com for more information.
- Clinically proven to improve mood and reduce risk of disease, exercise is the final key in the Adipex program. We provide information on how much to exercise and important safety tips.
What causes me to gain weight?
Your diet and lack of exercise or daily movement play an important role in the size and health of your body. Sleep problems can also affect your weight. In some cases, your genes might cause a predisposition to gaining weight or carrying extra fat in certain places of your body.
During your consultation and physical exam, Dr. Tavani helps identify the cause of your weight gain. Weight loss not only reduces your risk for health issues, but it can make you feel better and boost your self-confidence, as well.
