Weight Loss Can Improve Overall Health
Overall Health Improvements in Chattanooga
While you may have the motivation to lose weight because of the many benefits
that come with significant weight loss, it may be difficult to shed pounds
effectively due to hormonal factors. A hormonal imbalance can prevent
your weight loss without you knowing that there are medical factors behind
your excess pounds, so countless efforts may not yield the results you
are after. When you consult True Wellness in Chattanooga, you will be
able to address obesity with the diagnosis of hormonal disorders that
may be keeping you from losing weight with other methods. Our proven program
is designed to not only promote quick weight loss, but it is also focused
on the health of our clients.
Benefits of Weight Loss
When you lose weight, your health may improve dramatically, even before
you reach your ultimate weight loss goals. As you become trimmer, you
might notice a reduction in joint pain and fatigue, since every pound
you lose can take five pounds of pressure off of the knees and hips. Here
are some of the other profound health perks that may come with your weight
loss at True Wellness.
Lower type 2 diabetes risk – Obesity has caused type 2 diabetes rates to increase dramatically in the
United States, but losing weight can help you control your risk. Even
if you have diabetes or prediabetes, weight loss can eliminate the risk
of secondary conditions caused by uncontrolled blood sugar.
Reduced blood pressure – High blood pressure is an often silent risk factor for heart disease, poor
kidney function, and stroke. Many people who are overweight or obese have
high blood pressure due to restriction of the arteries, though the problem
may easily be under control once your weight loss goals are met.
Improved organ health – Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is another serious health risk that may
stem from obesity. Excess body fat can put a strain on the liver, leading
to long-term damage with potentially life-threatening consequences. The
right diet can cleanse the liver as weight comes off, adding years to
your liver health.
Lower cholesterol – On its own, high cholesterol can contribute to heart disease and stroke,
but combined with high blood sugar and high blood pressure, metabolic
syndrome may arise.
Healthy Weight Loss Techniques
Because weight loss is such a common goal among American adults, there
are many different weight loss programs that you may choose from. However,
some programs are only focused on rapid weight loss rather than long-term
results, which can lead to unhealthy weight gain as soon as the program
is completed. With True Wellness, you can still expect to lose 20-45 pounds
in 40 days, but the strategy to get to this point is a personalized plan
that takes your unique body composition into account. This means that
you will not put your health at risk as you take off excess weight. To
