Obesity Q & A

What is obesity?

Obesity is carrying an excessive amount of body fat. About 42% of the U.S. population is obese, meaning they have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. Your BMI is a ratio of your height to your weight. 

Obesity greatly increases your risk of developing serious health problems, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Digestive problems, including liver disease and gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Certain cancers
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility

Obesity can also increase your risk of developing complications if you’re infected with COVID-19. 

How does treating obesity help me?

Obesity treatment isn’t directed at just helping you look slimmer to fit a media ideal of a “good” body. It can have positive effects on your quality of life. For example, weight loss helps you experience:

  • Greater energy levels
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved body contours
  • Better muscle definition
  • Lowered risk of chronic disease
  • Enhanced self-confidence

Losing weight when you’re obese can help you maintain better health and increase your life expectancy. 

What does obesity treatment involve?

Obesity is a complex condition and it’s not just about skipping dessert so you can lose weight. The team at Cure Weight Loss Clinic offer the most advanced, nonsurgical weight loss programs available. 

The practice encourages a loss of 5-7% of your weight each month. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, this is equal to 10-14 pounds. The program begins with a full body scan through the advanced Styku platform. You’ll also undergo comprehensive blood work analysis. The results help the team provide a customized plan that fits your specific needs and goals. 

The providers offer follow-ups that include advanced dietary recommendations and vitamin support. You’ll also get the most up-to-date, effective weight loss medications to speed up the weight loss process. 

Is obesity treatment right for me?

If you’re obese or weigh more than you’d like to, the experienced team at Cure Weight Loss Clinic can develop a personalized weight loss plan for you. They consider your preferences, goals, lifestyle, and schedule. 

The team also considers your current health and how it could be affecting your weight. You’ll undergo hormone evaluations and a medication review, to see if these factors are standing in the way of achieving a healthy weight.
