Medical Weight Loss Center In Glendale AZ
Medically supervised weight loss
Does the term “COVID 15” apply to you? If so, you are not alone! Studies show that over 60% of Americans experience unwanted weight gain since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. The increased stress in so many aspects of our everyday lives leads to decreased exercise activity and increased snacking. Studies have also shown that even 11 pounds of weight gain can increase our risk of developing coronary heart disease as well as other diseases. Higher than optimal weight can increase risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, depression, and generalized joint or muscle pain.
Unfortunately, being overweight does increase the risks of serious health conditions and diseases. Our goal in all of our offerings is to improve quality of life and promote longevity and maintaining a healthy weight is often a critical part of that. We aim to get off the diet roller coaster and not only start but continue on a healthy lifestyle journey.
As much as we would all like to lose unwanted weight quickly and keep it off, that can be unrealistic as well as unhealthy. We aim to set realistic goals and promote healthy lifestyle changes that will last you a lifetime instead of just 3 months!
Each patient is medically supervised through their journey and plans can be altered and tailored to individual needs as appropriate.
