Why a Weight Loss Care Program Could Be Just What You Need to Stay on Track

More than 60% of American adults are overweight or obese. Overweight individuals have a body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 29.9, while obese people have BMIs of 30 or above. Obesity puts you at risk for developing a number of conditions that can impact your quality of life, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and more.

For men and women who are overweight or obese, losing weight can improve overall health and enjoyment of life. From relieving joint pain to managing chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, losing weight can make a big difference for your health. But losing weight isn’t always easy. Losing weight and keeping it off requires knowledge of how your body works and commitment to making lifestyle changes like eating right and exercising.

That’s where the team at Family Medical Clinic comes in. Lavern Davidhizar, DO and Solomon Pearce, DO know that losing weight can be hard. Many people struggle with trying to lose weight and struggling to keep it off and maintain a healthy weight alone. With a weight loss care program at our clinic, you get a customized weight loss plan and professional support.

A weight loss care program gives you personalized support.

Lasting weight loss is challenging for many people. Crash diets and exercise plans often fail because they aren’t sustainable and they aren’t customized for your body and your lifestyle. While you might lose weight with the latest dieting craze, as soon as you stop dieting, you’re likely to gain the weight again.
