More than half of Americans make New Year’s resolutions every January. But the responsibilities of life get in the way all too often, and according to research, about 80% of those resolutions fall to the wayside a few months into the new year.
If you’ve lost sight of your resolutions this year, it’s not too late to see results! Some of the most common resolutions include exercising more, eating healthier, and losing extra weight — and Lenox Medical Clinic is here to help.
Sudha Challa, MD and our team offer medically supervised weight loss programs for children and adults. We know that lasting weight loss isn’t easy, and we provide the expertise and accountability you need to shed those extra pounds and feel better this year.
Weight loss personalized for you
Your weight is a complex combination of factors, from genetics to lifestyle habits. Because everyone’s body and metabolism are different, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for weight loss.
That’s why Dr. Challa and our team customize individual weight loss programs. We start with a comprehensive evaluation of your health, existing medical conditions and medications, lifestyle factors, and weight loss goals.
Your weight loss program includes nutritional guidance and exercise recommendations designed with your lifestyle in mind. We offer menu planning assistance and behavioral counseling to help you make lasting lifestyle changes.
If you have a significant amount of weight to lose, we may prescribe prescription appetite-suppressant medication to support your goals.
Along the way, you have the support of our medical staff and registered dietitians. We offer accountability and work to educate you about the benefits of living a healthy, active lifestyle no matter your age.
The benefits of shedding extra pounds
Almost 75% of adults and 20% of children in the United States are overweight or obese. Carrying extra weight can negatively impact your health, but achieving a healthy weight can improve your ability to enjoy life.
Losing those extra pounds could help you lower your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions. You might find that joint pain lessens, and your mobility improves as you work toward your weight loss goals.
The thought of losing weight can be intimidating, but you don’t have to lose a lot of weight to see a difference in your health. In fact, losing as little as 5-10% of your body weight can improve certain health markers and keep you motivated to stick to your weight loss plan.
Participating in a medically supervised program ensures you’re losing weight in a healthy, sustainable way. Our personalized programs combine medical expertise with diet and exercise plans that work so you can take steps to a healthier future.
It’s May, but there’s still plenty of time to achieve your weight loss goals this year. Contact Lenox Medical Center online or call our Chamblee or Johns Creek, Georgia, offices today.
