Weight Loss Management Q & A

Why is weight loss such an important issue?

Being overweight can negatively impact your quality of life and can lead to some serious health conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Strokes
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Breathing problems

Carrying too much weight also makes it harder to be physically active, and can affect your self-confidence and mental health. Losing weight is one of the most positive and proactive steps you can take to improve your health, and Dr. Vinokur can help you take that step with a customized and comprehensive treatment plan.

What is the best way to lose weight?

The best way to lose weight and keep it off is to eat a nutritious, well-balanced diet with controlled portion size, and exercise regularly. There’s no miracle solution to weight loss, so it’s best to avoid the fad diets and instant weight loss solutions you commonly see advertised.

You lose weight by burning off more calories than you consume, but it’s not as simple as just cutting out food. For example, your body reacts to over-enthusiastic dieting by going into what’s known as starvation mode, and any weight you do lose is quickly put back on when you start eating normally again.

It’s also notoriously hard work reducing food intake to an effective degree when you’re used to eating too many calories. That’s why getting professional assistance from an experienced weight loss expert like Dr. Vinokur can be extremely beneficial when you’re trying to shed pounds in a sustainable way.

How does weight loss management work?

Dr. Vinokur and her team can provide you with all the information you need to lose weight at a steady, healthy rate, tailoring your diet plan to suit your lifestyle and expected outcome. You have a ready-made support system in place to give you encouragement and advice, and monitor your progress.

Dr. Vinokur recommends a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, including the incorporation of the Arbonne suite of weight management products, which contain glucomannan, green coffee bean extract, and targeted botanicals. These ingredients may assist with weight loss by:

  • Helping you feel more full and less hungry
  • Boosting your metabolism
  • Reducing your glucose absorption

Dr. Vinokur provides all the information and support you need, so you’ll understand the importance of nutrition and exercise, and feel empowered to reach your target weight. For more information on how North Fulton OB-GYN can help you lose weight, call the clinic today or book an appointment online.
