Weight Loss Q & A

What are specific health risks with being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of extra weight places an enormous toll on your body. Some of the health risks linked to being overweight or obese include an elevated risk of:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain cancers
  • Kidney disease
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Sleep disorders
  • Osteoarthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Fatty liver disease

These are just some of the issues that can arise when you are significantly overweight. Finding a weight loss program that works for you is among the most important steps you can take to live a longer, healthier, and happier life. 

Why is it so difficult to drop weight and keep it off?

There are many factors that contribute to the growing obesity problem in America and beyond. Changes in the food supply are one obvious issue. With fast food readily available and cheap, grocery store aisles filled with highly processed and nutritionally void options and confusing labeling standards, it’s no wonder so many people struggle to balance their diet. 

A sedentary lifestyle is also a contributing factor. Many Americans spend most of the day sitting in front of a screen, both at home and at work. This leaves precious little time for fresh air and exercise. 

High levels of stress can also make it harder for your body to shed pounds. Even poor quality sleep can play a role in weight gain by depriving your body of the rest it needs to repair itself. 

How is medically supervised weight loss different?

Murphy Medical Associates offers a top-quality weight loss program that is completely customizable to your unique set of needs. Prescription medication might play a role in your weight loss journey, and weight loss injections can also be helpful for some. 

Personalized meal plans are available and a great way to retrain you in shaping and embracing a healthy nutrition plan. Your team works with you to improve your approach to food and eating. 

The LW4L (Lose Weight for Life) weight loss program is one available option. This approach includes weekly visits, behavior modification, and targeted exercise plans and calorie reduction to achieve measurable results.  

Best of all, your journey will be guided by medical professionals who understand your overall health. Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all process. The providers at Murphy Medical Associates customize your program to fit your individual needs. Patients can expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week after they join the program.
