Weight Loss and Nutrition

What are the risks of obesity?

Obesity is a very common condition that affects nearly 40% of adults in the United States. Obesity occurs when there is too much fat stored in the body. Being overweight or obese puts you at increased risk for a number of conditions like:

  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke

On the other end of an unhealthy body weight, being underweight can cause osteoporosis, malnutrition, and an impaired immune system.

At Healing Duo Integrative Family Medical Practice, the team provides personalized health evaluations to help you determine your health goals and develop an actionable plan to get you there. Your personalized health evaluation can include a number of exams, including a physical, nutritional consultation, and blood test. 

What is a clinical nutrition consultation?

A clinical nutrition consultation is an essential part of determining how your diet and nutrition are affecting your health. It is an in-depth review of your diet and digestive health compared to your nutritional needs.

During a consultation at Healing Duo Integrative Family Medicine Practice, your practitioner discusses your family and medical history and performs a number of diagnostics to better understand your overall health. Your clinical nutrition consultation is used to make dietary and supplementation recommendations and develop your personalized weight loss or nutrition plan. 

What does a personalized weight loss and nutrition plan include?

Getting your weight under control helps you reduce your risk for a number of serious health concerns. A personalized weight loss and nutrition plan is a comprehensive plan designed to help you meet your individual diet and fitness goals.

In addition to a detailed evaluation of your overall health, personalized weight management includes a diet plan, exercise plan, and supplements package. These plans take the stress out of making the necessary lifestyle modifications for improving your health. 

Diet plan

The diet plan is designed around your specific weight goals. This healthy eating plan helps you eat the right amount of calories and nutrients for achieving your goal weight. Diet plans are essential to optimizing your health and avoiding preventable conditions like type 2 diabetes.

Exercise plan 

Your practitioner tailors your exercise plan to your abilities and fitness goals. The plan helps you establish healthy fitness practices that promote long-term health and wellness. Your exercise plan provides you with actionable steps you can take to make physical activity part of your normal routine. 

Supplements package

A supplements package is an assortment of supplements selected based on your specific nutritional needs. At Healing Duo Integrative Family Medical Practice, the team provides physician-grade supplements.
