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
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • Gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis

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?

Battlefield Family Medicine & Weight Management partners with top specialists and physicians, providing you with a superior weight loss program and support. The team offers virtual visits in a one-on-one setting to give you convenience and confidentiality. The online coaching approach equips you with the support you need. 

The team encourages a short-term weight loss goal of 15-30 pounds, which can continue if you need to lose more. They also support long-term weight management once you reach your goal. Dr. Tavani offers a self-pay, in-person or online monthly program, Optavia, designed to help manage your weight loss journey. 


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.
