Frequently Asked Questions

There are multifaceted reasons why we gain weight. Weight gain has become a more complex problem than calories in and calories out. Obesity is a serious, chronic, and treatable disease. We know that eating healthy and exercise are essential in weight loss. However, without a personalized treatment plan and motivation, most weight loss goals are not achieved.

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • Prediabetes
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Certain cancers
