The number of obese and overweight Americans is steadily growing, and a number of factors are to blame.

Prescribed Weight Loss

Everyone wants to look and feel great, but prescribed weight loss may be necessary for those who are chronically obese. Obesity is defined as a body weight that is more than 20 percent of what it should be according to the Body Mass Index (BMI). Obesity is a serious health condition that can put you at risk for:

  • Low testosterone
  • Diabetes
  • Various cancers
  • Breathing problems, including sleep apnea and aggravated asthma
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease

This is only a partial list of the problems that can be caused by chronic obesity, but the message is clear: losing weight can quite literally save your life.

The First Steps

If you’re curious about a managed weight loss program, the best place to begin is by talking to a men’s health expert that can help you understand your risk factors and your weight loss options. At Men’s Vitality Center in Tempe, our doctors can help you find a personalized exercise and diet plan that will help you quickly and effectively lose weight. If you’re interested in receiving detailed nutritional guidance, consulting a nutritionist will help you understand not just which foods you should be consuming, but why you should be consuming them. It’s been shown that an increased understanding of nutrition and dietary mechanics can greatly improve a person’s dietary choices.

Weight Loss Management

Once you’ve taken the first steps and have committed to losing weight, adhering to your plan is the only way to obtain lasting results. Your doctor will recommend when you should be coming in for regular check-ins, and during these sessions, you can expect to be weighed, measured, and generally assessed. It can be difficult to track your progress on your own, but losing weight under the guidance of a doctor will provide you with valuable data about your progress. Moreover, these data will help your doctor make any necessary changes to your program. Your weight loss program may require years of dedication, but your doctor will be there to help you every step of the way.
