Whether  we like it or not your waist measurement, amount of belly fat has a direct correlation with our overall health. Report after report has told us that being overweight/obese can cause a multitude of health issue such as: heart attack, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, heart disease and diabetes.

And now studies tell us that having a big belly, a waist circumference of 37 inches or more for men and for women 31.5 inches can increase the risk of developing breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and many other types of cancer.

It gets even worse because  you increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer by as much as 5% for every inch your waist as above these measurements. One of the reasons for this is that your belly fat produces certain type of chemicals – hormones. These hormones increase the inflammatory process in the body and as inflammation increases in the body so those the chance of developing various cancers.

If your belly is protruding or hanging a bit over your pants waistline you definitely need to take this seriously and start taking the necessary steps to reduce your waist size.

Many people think that all they have to do is count calories and they should automatically start losing weight. What they may forget is that calories do matter thought just as important is the types of food that you are eating.

If you are counting calories and decide to eat a candy bar that has 100 calories you have to realize that those 100 calories from a candy bar are not the same as 100 calories from carrots, broccoli or spinach. Each food is processed or metabolized differently by the body. Meaning that  the candy bar after being metabolized by the body turns into nothing but pure sugar. As compared to spinach when processed by the body is turned into nutrients that the body needs to be healthy and to function at peak capacity.

That’s why in our weight loss program we emphasize eating foods that will provide our bodies with great nutrition so that we may lose weight but also hopefully improve our overall health and wellness and enhance the ability of our body to function at optimal capacity. So yes the weight loss medications do a great job of reducing her appetite and cravings and this should allow us to make the proper food choices. And that’s why we believe our weight loss program is so successful.

It’s the powerful combination of FDA approved weight loss medications, healthy nutritional recommendations and physical activity that has helped our patients lose weight.

We do our best to educate our patients on proper healthy nutrition. And every week we like to update this website with recipes and articles on health and wellness.
