Weight management is a long-term approach to a healthy lifestyle. Weight management also includes a balance of diet and physical exercise. Developing a healthy diet and healthy eating habits are great tools for weight management. Also, listening to your body and making sure you are always staying hydrated can be great tools for weight management. Eating slower and taking the time to chew your food are helpful ways to keep you from overconsuming and feeling too full.
Fad diets offer quick and easy weight loss, but the catch is that the weight does not stay off long-term. At Chicagoland Medical, our goal is to help you get on track and show you the path to a healthier life. Our trained professionals will work with you to help you come up with a nutrition and workout plan that’s right for you.
Rising obesity rates are a huge concern in North America. About 60% of Canadians are overweight or obese and roughly 69% of Americans are obese. Obesity is a risk factor for many chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Managing one’s weight is one factor in preventing such chronic diseases.
Recommendations for Weight Management
