Is Medical Weight Loss the Answer?

For many of us, thinking about diet and exercise is a facet of everyday life. However, for some, diet and exercise are not just sources of stress, but something much more serious. Being overweight or obese creates several significant risk factors for many health conditions. The more body fat you have and the higher your weight, your chances of developing one or more of these health conditions greatly increase:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol and or triglycerides
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallstones
  • Breathing problems such as sleep apnea, shortness of breath, asthma, etc.
  • Certain cancers


Additionally, higher obesity rates correlate with higher levels of stress, depression and anxiety.  If you’re struggling with obesity, it may feel like you’re alone – but rest assured, you’re not.  The Center for Weight Management offers the Medical Weight Loss program as a safe and effective option for your weight-loss journey.  This is a unique program that addresses the whole individual and includes medical and nutritional consultations, life coaching, group classes and personal training.

The truth is, meaningful and sustainable weight loss is difficult, especially when you’re doing it on your own. To start healing your mind and body, enroll in the Medical Weight Loss program at the Center for Weight Management. Even better, coming this June, the Center for Weight Management is offering a free patient information seminar led by Dr. Eileen Javellana.
