Weight Loss Q&A

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of extra weight places an enormous toll on your body. Virtually every organ and system is negatively affected. 

Some of the health risks of being overweight or obese include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Stoke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Hypertension
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction

This is far from a comprehensive list. Being overweight or obese is dangerous to your overall health and wellness. 

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?

This is a simple question, but one that has a complex answer. If you’ve struggled with yo-yo dieting over the years, you are certainly not alone. It is difficult to lose weight and maintain those results over time. 

Part of the problem is the food system. With fast food on virtually every corner and grocery store aisles packed with nutritionally void foods filled with unhealthy fats, sugar, and preservatives, it’s no wonder so many Americans struggle with their weight.

Conflicting weight loss advice and a weight loss industry worth billions of dollars further complicates matters. A sedentary lifestyle often means more time spent in front of screens than out in nature. High stress is also a factor and affects women of all ages. 

How is medically supervised weight loss different?

The OB-GYN Hawaii team is passionate about helping the women in their care reach their highest health potential. That’s why they include weight loss care at the OB-GYN practice. 

Working with a health care team to lose weight is the best approach. The team begins with a thorough health assessment to determine how your body is currently functioning. From there, they build a customized weight loss plan that takes into account your specific needs and challenges. 

All weight loss efforts consider your overall health as the central concern. This ensures your plan is effective, yet also in line with your physical and systemic limitations. Customized weight loss is a great way to lose weight on a slow and steady basis, which is proven to be more effective than fad diets or extreme exercise plans. 

When you’re ready to try a new approach to weight loss, call the office to set up a visit with the OB-GYN Hawaii team. Online scheduling is also available, allowing you to book from home any time of day or night.
