City Chiropractic And Wellness

What are the Health Risks of Being Overweight?

Being overweight or obese has become a critical health issue that affects nearly every corner of the globe. In the United States, about 7 in 10 Americans are overweight, with more than half of those individuals qualifying as obese (having a BMI score greater than 30). Carrying too much excess fat poses serious health risks, including:

  • A greater risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer
  • A higher risk of having unhealthy blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • A higher risk of developing high blood pressure
  • An increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke
  • A higher risk of developing sleep apnea or breathing problems
  • A greater chance of developing anxiety or depression
  • A greater likelihood of experiencing chronic pain or physical difficulties

What are the Benefits of Losing Weight?

Simply losing 5 to 10% of your body weight can significantly lower your risk of developing the serious health problems associated with carrying extra weight. Dr. Heller and the team at City Chiropractic and Wellness take a comprehensive, customized, whole-person approach to weight loss, providing the specific resources, tools, and support that you need to achieve long-term results.

Why are Exercise and Nutrition So Important?

Although every component of a weight loss program contributes to its overall success, regular exercise and a nutritious diet are especially important to achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight:

  • Exercise - Regular exercise can help you sleep better at night, avoid unhealthy food cravings, and keep you in a positive frame of mind. Physical activity can also help you improve your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and protect you from heart disease and diabetes.
  • Nutrition - Sound nutrition involves eating a variety of wholesome foods that support your health, and avoiding as much processed junk food as possible. Eating a nutritious diet gives your body what it needs to build bone, power muscle, and repair and replace tissues. Eating well also helps fuel your brain, boost your energy, increase your stamina, and protect your long-term health.

Weight-loss benefits aside, physical fitness and nutritious eating give you an opportunity to discover your healthiest life. Dr. Heller is passionate about helping his patients improve their overall health and well-being through weight loss.
