Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I be concerned with achieving a healthy weight?

When you’re carrying too many extra pounds, your quality of life and health is directly affected. Medical issues that being overweight or obese can aggravate or even cause, include:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Fertility issues
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma

Being overweight can also contribute to mood issues, such as depression, as well as poor self-esteem.

What weight-loss services are available?

The team at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing offers personalized group and private programs to help you effectively lose weight and keep it off. If you’ve struggled with weight loss in the past or this is your first serious commitment to achieving a healthy size, their nutrition guidance can help.

They offer counseling that helps you overcome the factors that stand in the way of weight loss. Strategies include:

  • Reducing stress
  • Devising a healthy, whole-foods, portion-controlled diet
  • Optimizing your nutrient intake through your diet and supplements
  • Engaging in more physical activity

Is my weight a result of genetics?

While some people may have a higher risk of becoming overweight due to their genetics, gaining weight isn’t inevitable. Your lifestyle choices play a large role in your size. The team helps you understand how to make smarter choices so you gain control over your life and weight.

What is body composition analysis?

Your body composition refers to the ratio of fat to lean tissue (such as muscles, connective tissue, and organs) that exists in your body. The goal of achieving a healthy weight isn’t just to reduce the numbers you see on a scale. Rather, it’s to lose fat while maintaining the integrity of your lean body mass. Body composition analysis evaluates your levels of fat throughout your journey to ensure you’re losing weight in a healthy way to promote optimal health and body tone.
