Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so vital to health?

Weight loss is important as being overweight or obese can cause or worsen many of the most common serious health conditions, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gallstones
  • Depression

Carrying too much weight puts excessive strain on the bones, joints, muscles, spinal discs, and connective tissues that make up your musculoskeletal system. It also causes stress to your internal organs, including your heart, liver, and kidneys.

Weight loss can improve your health and well-being, preventing these diseases and reversing the effects of some.

How much weight do I need to lose?

The standard measurement for healthy weight is body mass index (BMI). Using your BMI score (which she obtains by comparing your height and weight), Teresa determines whether you’re above your ideal weight and how much you should lose.

A BMI of 25 to 29.9 indicates you’re overweight. A BMI of 30 or over signifies a greatly increased risk of developing serious health issues because of your weight.

While BMI is a useful tool, it’s also important to undergo a comprehensive assessment with Teresa. She can determine your body type and test for problems like a thyroid hormone imbalance that make weight loss more challenging.

How do I succeed with weight loss?

Successful weight loss means eating fewer calories, doing more physical activity, and following a healthy diet. That sounds straightforward, but most people find losing weight a difficult process. Many factors can affect your chances of success, from not knowing enough about good nutrition to struggling with hunger pangs.
