Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so challenging?

This simple question has a complex answer. Many factors make it difficult to lose weight, not all of which are within your control. What researchers do know is that weight loss is more than a matter of simple willpower. 


The American food supply is part of the problem. Fast food is readily available around the clock in most towns and cities, and highly processed food products line grocery store shelves. 


Many families spend much of the day in front of screens at school, at work, and for recreation, leaving precious little time to get outside and stay active. High-stress levels and poor sleep quality also complicate weight loss. 

What are the health risks linked to being overweight or obese?

Some health issues with a clear link to being overweight or obese include:


  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Coronary artery disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Many types of cancer
  • Depression


This is not a comprehensive list. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of a plethora of negative health conditions. 

How can a dietician and nutritionist help with weight loss?

If you’re like many people, you’ve probably tried a range of diet and exercise plans. You may have even achieved a degree of success, only to find the weight pile back on. 


Working with a dietician and nutritionist for weight loss is a different experience. The focus lies in identifying habits and other factors that cause or contribute to weight gain and finding ways to incorporate healthier habits into your daily routines. 


This begins with nutritional counseling, a highly personalized approach that strives to set goals and create workable plans to move closer to those goals. Learning to view food as medicine is a big part of the process. 


Eating is a necessity of life, and it’s also a source of great pleasure. Your practitioners work closely with you to create a personalized plan that allows you to enjoy meals while giving your body what it needs to thrive. 


Working with a health coach is also a great way to improve your wellness and support your weight loss journey. You learn to get plenty of exercise without placing your body under undue strain.
