I don’t think it comes as any surprise that Americans have a weight problem. Roughly 70% of people are considered overweight, and about 50% are considered obese. As if that wasn’t bad enough, COVID happened. A recent survey conducted by the American Psychological Association shows that 62% of Americans underwent undesired weight changes over the past year or so, with 42% of them gaining more than 29 lbs. America’s weight problem is getting out of control and I don’t think people are taking it as seriously as they need to. To be clear, this is not about
what someone looks like. It’s about how unhealthy it makes you and all the devastating health consequences it can have on you and your family.
For years, I’ve resisted offering any type of weight loss program in my office for several reasons. For one, it wasn’t something I felt I needed to offer. It just seemed like more work for me to do when I wasn’t looking to get busier. But then I started noticing how sick people were getting – without even realizing it – and I felt compelled to look into ways that I could help them with that aspect of their wellness. This isn’t news to anyone, but being overweight is a significant contributing factor for developing all types of chronic ill- nesses, including but not limited to, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and lung diseases. These diseases are the leading cause of death in America. Being overweight is also devastating to the health of your spine, hips, knees and ankles, which often leads to a poor quality of life. There is not a single organ system that is not negatively impacted by being overweight or obese and it can literally kill you from the inside out. Every time I hear stories of someone having a fatal heart attack or stroke as a result of being overweight, and seeing the pain it causes the family, I can’t help but feel a little angry – because so often, it’s preventable. Stories like these are the reason I have decided to start offering a program for losing weight and making permanent lifestyle changes for those who are in need and ready. Ready for a jump start. Ready for a metabolic reset. Ready to embark on the journey to achieving a healthy weight and maintaining it for the long haul.
It’s exciting to be a part of a transformation that improves someone’s health on so many levels. We are seeing people who are naturally lowering their blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar all while feeling, functioning, and looking better. You can experience a healthier and better life. You owe it to yourself and to your family to get the weight off. Don’t let a heart attack be your wake-up call. I am here to help you! Schedule a no-obligation, free consultation.
