Weight Loss Q & A

Innovative Medical Centers

What are the risks associated with being overweight or obese?

People who are overweight or obese are at an elevated risk of many diseases and medical conditions. The human body has an incredible ability to adapt to numerous circumstances, but carrying extra weight can impact virtually every system of your body.

Some of the risks of being overweight or obese include a higher likelihood of:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain Cancers
  • Diabetes
  • Gout
  • Asthma

Of course, not every person who is overweight will suffer from all of these conditions, but it’s rare for an individual to be significantly overweight and not encounter severe medical problems.

How is medically supported weight loss different?

There are many different ways to lose weight, each with a unique set of pros and cons. One of the ways that Innovative Medical Centers’ approach to weight loss is different lies in the professional support provided from start to finish.

When it comes to losing weight, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. Some people respond well to intermittent fasting, while others have better results with a clear diet plan.  

At Innovative Medical Centers, there’s no reliance on prepackaged food items, fad diet supplements, or complicated point systems. One approach offered is the ketogenic diet, a nutrition plan that centers on fewer refined carbohydrates and more healthy proteins and fats. You eat a wide range of whole foods in a balance that supports optimal health and wellness.

Losing weight is only the beginning; it’s maintaining a healthy weight that counts. That’s why the lifestyle counseling offered at Innovative Medical Centers is such an effective way to instill healthy habits that support your weight loss goals.

How can low-level light therapy help with weight loss?

Low-level light therapy (LLLT) is not only a weight loss option but a complementary treatment used to address stubborn deposits of fat. The approach is noninvasive and can yield impressive results.

LLLT works by directing targeted laser light to areas of your body where you need contouring. The laser does not deliver enough heat to damage your skin or nearby tissues, but it does impact the structure of your fat cells.

As the cell walls are compromised, the cells collapse and shrink. Your body processes this waste and effectively removes it from your body. The final result is the elimination of stubborn fat deposits that diet and exercise alone cannot eliminate.

Low-level light therapy has the ability to remove excess pounds. It isn’t a miracle weight loss approach or a fad. What LLLT can do is make the most out of the hard work you put in toward reaching your goals. To learn more, contact Innovative Medical Centers today.
