Whether you’ve been told by a doctor that you need to lose weight or you’ve come to the conclusion on your own, you’re ready to take charge of your health through weight loss. To be successful, it’s best to choose a weight loss program that fits your own goals, health concerns, and circumstances.
Instead of turning to the Internet — which delivers a whopping 861,000 million results when you enter the words, “weight loss program” — turn to medical experts such as the team at No Mercy Sports Medicine. Under the direction of Dr. Moisés Irizarry-Román, we offer weight management services that help our patients gain control over their health and their lives.
A weighty problem by the numbers
An eye-opening two out every three U.S. adults are considered to be either overweight or obese, which puts them at great risk for some serious health complications. Almost every area of your health can be affected by your weight, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that some of the leading causes of preventable and premature death are tied to obesity, including:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Certain cancers
These conditions are life-threatening. Carrying extra pounds also exacerbates painful conditions like arthritis, which can seriously impact your quality of life.
The good news is that losing just 5%-10% of your excess body weight can go a long way toward improving your health on all fronts.
The smart way to lose weight
No matter what some products or services may promise, there’s no magic bullet when it comes to losing meaningful weight. While certain fad diets and products may produce some results, they’re temporary at best and dangerous at worst.
To successfully lose weight and keep it off, you need to accomplish several objectives:
- Burn more calories than you take in
- Maintain optimal nutrient levels
- Change your eating habits
- Increase your activity levels
Through the weight management program at No Mercy Sports Medicine, we tackle each of these areas through:
- Dietary counseling
- Exercise planning
- Medical-grade dietary supplements
- Hormone replacement therapy
With our multi-pronged approach to weight loss, we tailor a plan to suit your particular needs and monitor you the entire time, cheering your progress or providing you with the push you need to go the distance.
We understand that people put on weight for different reasons, and we address the underlying cause of your weight gain so you’re rewarded with sustainable and life-changing results. This combination of medical assistance and accountability has allowed us to help scores of patients lose the pounds necessary to improve their health, giving them a new lease on life.
