Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management services focus on helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. Dr. Amer offers weight management services for people who are overweight or obese but find it difficult to lose weight on their own. 

Weight loss can seem overwhelming for some people who are limited by existing health issues or those who aren’t sure how to start a safe weight loss journey.

Why is weight management important?

Your weight plays a role in your overall health and longevity. If you carry excess weight around for too long, your risk for chronic diseases, pain, and other complications can increase significantly.

Common conditions that can develop because of weight challenges include:

  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

Excess weight can also put unnecessary pressure on your joints and lead to persistent pain from arthritis.

To lower your risk for chronic illness and pain, you can benefit from the guidance Dr. Amer offers through the available weight management services.

What is involved in weight management?

During your initial weight management consultation, Dr. Amer spends time learning about your lifestyle, diet, and health history. She discusses the issues you have losing weight and your goals for your weight loss journey.

Dr. Amer customizes a weight loss plan to your needs to help you reach a healthy body mass index (BMI). Your plan includes recommendations for improving your diet by incorporating more fresh vegetables, fruits, and lean meats into your meal plan. You should also limit your use of sugar, carbohydrates, and starchy foods.

Another important component of a weight loss plan is daily exercise. Dr. Amer can suggest physical activities and exercises you can do every day to burn calories.

You can expect to schedule routine follow-up visits for weight checks to keep you accountable to your goals. Dr. Amer can also help you set new goals as you lose weight, so you can maintain your weight loss results in the long term.
