Maintaining a healthy weight is important, but many patients find weight loss difficult, even when they change their diet and engage in regular exercise. The experienced clinicians at First Team Medical Clinics offer supportive services to people who want to lose weight. Managing a healthy weight can be difficult for a variety of reasons but it is essential in controlling and preventing other serious medical conditions like diabetes and obesity. FTMC takes a holistic approach to weight management, addressing the systematic factors which influence your ability to lose weight and prevent complications from diabetes and other weight related illnesses. We have helped numerous men and women achieve successful weight loss on our program, getting many of them off their diabetic, cholesterol, and blood pressure medications.
Patients who are overweight or obese are more likely to experience health problems, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. In addition, being overweight puts unnecessary physical stress on the body, which can lead to injuries and chronic pain. Furthermore, patients at a healthy weight are more likely to enjoy good self-esteem and high confidence than patients who are overweight.
Patients can determine whether they may need to lose weight based on their body mass index, or BMI. BMI measures the approximate amount of fat in the patient’s body based on the patient’s current height and weight.
To have a normal body weight, patients should usually aim for a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9. Patients with a BMI of 25 or more are considered overweight, while patients with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese.
First Team Medical Clinics offers the Heathy Habits Weight Loss Program. This program has helped more than 10,000 people lose weight successfully nationwide over a period of only 4 years. The program includes a combination of physical activity, behavior modification, portion control, food choice, and supplements to help the patient lose weight quickly and safely.
