This is not a scare tactic message, but rather, we feel, an important message to highlight the negative health implications associated with obesity that we see every day. It may surprise you to know that many of the men and women who come to our clinics are unaware of the risks associated with obesity, and when informed are so grateful they could do something about it before their problems became irreversible.
If you wish to reverse the risks as mentioned above, the good news is something can be done. Losing weight and lowering your BMI (body mass index) to normal or lower levels, or with a 5-10% reduction in weight as a starting point will significantly reduce your likelihood of developing these potentially serious medical conditions, and significant weight loss can resolve many pre-existing conditions associated with obesity.
Of course there are also many, many psychological benefits in losing excess weight; people become more confident, feel less isolated, feel more attractive and feel more assertive as well as the obvious benefits associated with feeling healthy like a new wardrobe!
