  • at 70% higher risk of colon cancer;
  • 6 times more likely to develop a gallbladder disease or hypertension;
  • 3.8 times more likely to develop diabetes (88-97% of patients with Type II diabetes are obese)?
  • Being 10% overweight puts the patient at 30% chance of having a heart attack;
  • Every year at least 300,000 deaths are obesity-related which is 10 times more if compared to motor vehicle accidents *.

Healthy Weight Loss

Obesity is a multifactoral chronic disease that touches lives of at least a third of Americans today and imposes huge health risks due to multiple obesity-related comorbidities. There are at least 40 obesity caused health disorders such as anatomic complications, metabolic disorders, neoplastic complications, degenerative disorders, psychological implications, nutrient deficiencies that are positively correlated with increased morbidity and premature mortality.

The good news is that you can fight obesity as it is one of the most preventable and manageable diseases. The primary cause of excess weight is the imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. Thus, by simply producing negative energy balance through behavioral modification of diet and exercise, patients can control and maintain their weight *.
