Current research statistics reveal that greater than 50% of the American population is overweight. This frightening statistic is even more alarming because of the distinct correlation between obesity and chronic health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. The correlation between obesity and cancer, for example, reveals higher rates of colon, rectal, and prostate cancer in men, and increased risks of breast, cervical, uterine, ovarian, and gallbladder cancer in women.
It is not totally clear whether the increased risk is due to the obesity itself or the higher caloric intake. What is clear is that the risk is greater.
The empowerment of the individual to take control of their life plays a key role in successful weight management. Most people enroll in diet programs which manipulate the individual’s intake of various foods in a manner which is inconsistent with optimal health. Often the desired weight loss occurs – but at what price to the overall health profile of the individual?
Additionally, because the weight loss is accomplished without maintainable lifestyle changes, it is unrealistic to expect that it will produce permanent weight change. The weight is often gained back with additional pounds as old lifestyle patterns return.
It is important that ideal weight be viewed in perspective with the individual’s genetic makeup. More important than numbers on the scale, are the percentages of body fat compared to lean body mass. When a healthy balance between fat and lean mass is achieved, the individual will notice positive changes, not only in their size, but also in their level of energy and their overall health profile.
Healthy Weight Loss begins with education, and the recognition that the current condition of your body is the end result of what you put in your mouth, your activity levels, and your attitudes. Weight management is directed at the loss of body fat with the preservation of lean body tissue. If you wish to change your weight permanently, and in a way that is consistent with optimal health, you must change your lifestyle.
Our philosophy is directed toward the re-education of the individual about food selections, along with the setting of attainable goals relative to weight management and lifestyle changes. The empowerment of the individual to take control of their life plays a key role in our diet program and in successful weight management.
Psychological Impact of Being Overweight
Everyone handles the psychological aspect of being sick and/or overweight differently. The stress created by the loss of one’s health impacts not only on us personally, but also family, friends, and co-workers. The added burden of illness can directly affect the course, duration, and efficacy of treatment.
Individuals who are sick or overweight often have both psychological and physical obstacles to overcome. Issues of self-esteem, as well as feelings of depression, anger, frustration, and helplessness often work to sabotage efforts to attain their desired goals and regain control of their health.
Many people try alternative approaches after experiencing negative reactions or limited success with conventional forms of treatment. Research studies have shown that patients who know what to expect are best able to use their own natural coping skills to their best advantage. For many, this is the last step in a long process to regain their health. It is difficult to remain optimistic after other methods of treatment have not been fully successful.
Adherence to treatment protocols can be difficult to comply with in the face of normal daily activities. The good news is that you are here now and reading about our wellness center! Our nutrition programs really works, and have proven to work even in the most stubborn cases. We will work with you to reach your goals!
If you have been experiencing difficulty losing weight with many of the fad diets out there, there is now a reason to rejoice. Read some of the FAQ’s below for much more information on our powerful and effective natural weight loss programs.
A: Yes. Diet and exercise work well when properly applied to your unique situation. There are no "one size fits all" plans that work for each of us. Because everyone's situation differs, most successful weight loss programs must be custom fit to your lifestyle in order to be successful for you. Healthy, permanent, weight loss isn't only about eating the right things, but eating proper quantities and at the right times. Additionally, weight loss usually doesn't remain permanent without an exercise program to go with it. We will work with you to formulate the best plan that suits your needs and schedule.
A: The best way to lose weight is to become educated in what foods nourish your body and which foods are deleterious to your health. Education is KEY to successful natural weight loss. That is the essence of what we do here at CARE Wellness Center, educate and empower our weight loss patients so they can achieve their goals. That is exactly why we incorporate nutritional counseling into many of our programs.
A: Healthy fat loss (the loss of fat without the simultaneous loss of lean muscle tissue) should be only about 1-2 pounds per week. Rapid weight loss is not healthy.
A: Realistic goals are best. The concept of losing weight "fast" for a specific event usually leads to "yo-yo weight loss" which is very unhealthy. If you need to lose weight for a specific occasion we suggest that you leave yourself enough time to accomplish your goal in a realistic period of time. Truthfully, you should be losing weight for the reasons of being healthy and feeling vital and energetic and for staying that way for the rest of your life.
A: Natural Weight loss can be easy and believe it or not REQUIRES eating lots of food! You shouldn't be hungry if you are eating the proper types of food. A coach or someone you can talk to who is knowledgeable about nutrition can make all the difference. That's where we come in!
A: There are height/weight tables set up that can give you a general idea about what your "ideal" weight should be, however the concept of a ideal weight is misleading. We are all individual and if you eat a well balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains with minimal saturated fats and minimal junk foods your body will seek and maintain its own healthy weight. Being overweight can set you up for increase risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer as well as spinal and joint related problems and arthritis. We will formulate a diet plan that is just right for you. We want to help you lose weight, number one, and number two, we want to help you keep it off!
A: Exercise is a critically important part of weight management. It helps to increase cardiovascular fitness and to maintain the all-important lean muscle tissue, which in turn causes a permanent shift in the base metabolic rate of your body (the calories you burn while not doing any activity). Exercise, when performed routinely, will make you feel more energetic. It burns calories, causes increased circulation, decreases stress and leaves you with an overall feeling of well being. Taking control of your health/weight involves treating yourself better. Giving yourself time on a daily basis that is special time just for you is therapeutic and will result in regaining control over this aspect of your life.
