What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of extra weight places enormous strain on virtually every organ and system within your body. It’s difficult to overstate the damage that can be done. 

Some of the health risks linked to being overweight or obese include:

  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Cognitive problems
  • Dementia
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol

This is far from a comprehensive list. Almost every aspect of your health and wellness is negatively affected by being overweight or obese. 

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?

Many different factors contribute to the growing obesity epidemic in America. Part of the problem lies in our modern food supply. With fast food available virtually everywhere and grocery store aisles lined with heavily processed foods and confusing labeling, it should come as no surprise that many people struggle with their weight. 

The current American lifestyle is also partly responsible. More time spent in front of screens at home, work, and recreation, leaves little time to spend being active outdoors.

Conflicting nutritional guidance is everywhere as well, often delivered by companies who want to profit off your desire to boost your health.

Americans also struggle to manage stress or get enough sleep each night. This problem further depletes your energy and makes it hard to stay motivated and be more active. 

What kinds of nutrition and wellness services are available?

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried many different diet and exercise plans. You might even have enjoyed a degree of success, only to find the weight quickly return after you stray from your new plan. 

Medically supervised weight loss takes a different approach, one that treats food as medicine. You’ll receive the guidance and support needed to lose extra weight while also enhancing your nutrition and wellness. 

You’ll also be provided with a customized nutrition plan to meet your unique needs. As you move through your weight loss journey, you’ll have the full support of the More Than Medical Wellness team to provide encouragement and accountability, as well as to celebrate your achievements.
