If you consume more calories than you burn in a day, you gain weight. Your diet and activity levels are the main contributors to your weight.
However, medical conditions, certain medications, and hormone levels influence your weight too. The following medical conditions cause some people to gain weight:
Aging and the hormone changes during menopause often slow the metabolism and lead to unintentional weight gain.
Excess weight increases your risk of many diseases and puts additional pressure on your bones and joints. Luckily, even just a slight weight reduction can reduce inflammation levels in the body, relieve joint pressure, and lower your disease risk.
According to the Obesity Action Coalition, a small 5-10% weight loss lowers your risk of the following conditions.
The experts at Sugarloaf Wellness Center promote a holistic approach to weight loss, incorporating nutrition, fitness, and medical support to help you create effective, lasting weight-loss results.
You should follow a reduced-calorie, balanced eating plan for the best weight-loss results. Suzanne and Dr. Kunz provide nutritional guidelines to help you learn about the healthiest food choices. They also show you how to use smart food pairings and proper portions for weight control.
