Obesity is linked to more than 50 diseases. For example, if you’re overweight or obese, you have an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, renal dysfunction or failure, peripheral arterial disease, poor wound healing, and sometimes even limb loss.
When you carry extra pounds, the excess weight overtaxes your body. When you consume a high-fat diet, you can end up with high cholesterol, which can lead to an artery-narrowing condition called atherosclerosis.
Similarly, when you lead an unhealthy lifestyle, your blood pressure can increase, which damages your blood vessels and causes cardiovascular disease.
Many patients have struggled to lose weight and eat properly, only to fall back on old habits, gaining back their weight, and sometimes even gaining more. It’s a real and frustrating problem, and there is no easy fix. But at some point, weight loss and proper nutrition become a must.
Experts at Protelix Health Clinic work with you to create and complete a plan that improves your overall wellness, including your personal and professional interactions, as well as a personalized nutrition and exercise plan to help you lose weight and evolve your relationship with food.
Working with a health and wellness expert can help you improve your relationship with food and exercise, transforming your diet and lifestyle. Food becomes a source of nutrition and fuel instead of pleasure.
Your Protelix Health Clinic provider can also help you manage any underlying health conditions that may be contributing to your weight gain, such as diabetes or a thyroid disorder.
Protelix Health Clinic experts design a personalized exercise and nutrition program specific to your individual needs, be it better health, weight loss, or better performance at your chosen sport or activity.
Working together with a health and wellness provider helps you to achieve success and keeps you accountable, but you, more than anyone, have to want it. Realizing your health and wellness is the priority is step one.
Your weight loss care plan begins with a 30-day startup plan in which you change your diet, including the foods you consume, when you eat, and how you prepare your meals. You also slowly add exercise to your day. Nutritional cleansing is a critical part of this process. You’ll learn which foods are best for your body, as well as those to avoid for optimal body function.
In addition to the changes to your diet and exercise habits, you work with your Protelix Health Clinic provider to identify other areas in your health that you want to improve and create a plan to adjust your actions and expectations. You may be asked to keep a food and exercise journal.
At Protelix Health Clinic, your health and wellness is the priority. To begin your healthy weight loss journey, call the office or schedule an appointment online today.
