The cells that store fat, called adipocytes, are biochemically active. They produce hormones and other substances that travel through your body, communicating with other cells, and influencing your health by causing inflammation and other unwanted reactions.
As a result, overweight patients are at risk of chronic health conditions such as:
Obesity places a significant strain on your joints, leading to chronic pain, and also increases your chances of developing neuropathy and certain types of cancer.
A medically-supervised weight loss program ensures you have a support team to help you through your weight loss journey. Your program begins with a physical exam to identify potential medical problems that need treatment or that require specialized dietary care.
Your provider at Bryant Wellness Institute gives you all the information you need to successfully reach your goal. However, one of the biggest benefits of a structured weight loss program is that you’re backed by a professional team that offers encouragement when you struggle and holds you accountable for your progress.
In addition to your physical exam, your weight loss program starts with a discussion about your previous diet attempts, your typical eating and exercise habits, and your body mass index (BMI), which estimates your body fat based on your height and weight.
When your Bryant Wellness Institute provider has all your baseline information, they create a weight loss program designed to meet your goals while also working with your lifestyle.
Though each weight loss plan is individualized, most include the following components.
One of the challenges of weight loss is getting adequate nutrition while cutting calories and reducing your food consumption. It’s also common for overweight patients to have nutrient deficiencies. For these reasons, your provider at Bryant Wellness Institute ensures your meal plan is nutrient-dense and boosts your nutritional intake with supplements as needed.
Once you reach your weight loss goal, the team at Bryant Wellness Institute helps you develop a maintenance program for long-term success.
