How Being Overweight Affects Your Health
If you’re overweight, your overall wellness is at risk. The strain on your muscles and joints can lead to mobility problems that can likely lead to additional problems. Excess weight can also lead to a myriad of health complications, including:
- Fatty liver disease
- High blood pressure
- Kidney disease
- Sleep apnea
- Pregnancy complications
Excess weight also puts you at risk for and can exacerbate depression and anxiety. People with obesity are 55% more likely to develop strains on their mental health.
Can a Doctor Help Me Lose Weight?
Yes. If you struggle to lose weight, or you’d like to lose weight but you don’t know where to begin, Synergy Health 360 can help. We offer tools for weight loss that include nutritional guidance, meal plans and weight-loss programs.
When you meet with Synergy Health 360, he develops a plan with you based on your:
- Current health
- Medical history
- Weight-loss goals
- Current activity level
Your weight-loss plan includes healthy recipes and exercise routines. We also offer access to yoga and personal training, and strategies for better sleep and improved mental health.
Weight Loss and Lifestyle Choices
To start losing weight, you can make a variety of lifestyle changes. These include:
- Increasing your activity levels to at least 30 minutes a day
- Eating fiber-rich foods (like vegetables, beans, and whole grains)
- Avoiding added sugars (found in candy, soft drinks, and baked goods)
- Eating healthy fats (like avocado, olive oil, and nuts)
- Eating at the dinner table instead of in front of the TV
- Cooking at home instead of eating out
- Eating protein in the morning
By starting with these changes, you can align yourself to be on track for good health, which is the ultimate goal. Enduring changes take time, but if you persist, you’ll find that in the long run your weight loss is more lasting and significant than if you participate in a fad diet.
