Weight Loss Program Q&A

Does being overweight negatively affect my health?

Yes. If you’re obese or even somewhat overweight, you’re more likely to experience chronic health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and joint pain. Being overweight can affect your mental health, as well. One study found that obese people are 55% more likely to experience depression than those who aren’t.

What is a medically supervised weight loss program?

A medically supervised weight loss program is a custom-tailored action plan designed to help you lose weight safely and effectively. It’s different from yo-yo dieting and nutritional fads that make unrealistic promises or risk your health.

Nation’s Best Family Health Care provides weight loss programs through BodySite.com. The BodySite website and app offer remote patient care and monitoring platforms, allowing you and your provider to track your progress.

Are the different types of weight loss programs?

Nation’s Best Family Health Care offers more than 40 weight loss programs. Depending on your health history and goals, they might recommend:

Ketogenic diet

The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet similar to the Atkins diet. It asks you to reduce your intake of carbohydrates and replace them with fat. Over time, this puts your body into ketosis, a metabolic state that causes your body to burn fat instead of carbs.

Low-carb diet

A low-carb diet is a weight loss program that asks you to restrict your intake of sugary foods, bread, and pasta. Over time, you replace carbs with whole-foods like natural proteins, fats, and vegetables.

Nutritional planning and consultation

If you don’t need a specific diet plan, you might benefit from nutritional planning and consultation. This is especially true if you eat out frequently or lead a busy life. By eating a more balanced diet, you can lose weight, build muscle, and lower your risk of heart disease.

What else does a weight loss program include?

At Nation’s Best Family Health Care, weight loss programs also include:

Exercise advice

To increase the number of calories you burn, you must exercise. No matter your level of physical fitness, your provider can make recommendations that help you stay active. This might include biking, swimming, walking, lifting weights, or a combination of several exercises.

Nutritional supplements

Nation’s Best Family Health Care sells nutritional supplements in the clinic. After developing a custom weight loss program, they can recommend vitamins and other supplements to complement your efforts.
