Weight Loss Q & A

Why is a healthy weight important?

Maintaining a healthy weight is very important for staying active and healthy. If you’re overweight or obese, you may not be able to enjoy the high quality of life you deserve. You may also be putting yourself at risk for chronic health conditions related to obesity, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic respiratory problems

Additionally, excess weight puts pressure on your joints, which can increase the likelihood you’ll develop chronic pain from conditions like arthritis. 

Being overweight can also affect how you feel about yourself, reducing your self-confidence and self-esteem. 

Why should I consider medically supervised weight loss?

There is a lot of information available about diet and exercise programs, many of which aren’t safe for everyone. Fad diets and medications can actually be harmful to your health and are often unregulated and untested.

Through a medically supervised weight-loss program, the MM Jersey City Breathing Center staff can assess your nutritional and exercise needs to determine how you can lose weight safely and effectively. 

They rely on your existing health and your medical history to identify the best methods for losing weight and keeping it off. 

What’s involved in a weight-loss program?

The staff at MM Jersey City Breathing Center take the time to understand your needs through a discussion about your weight-loss goals, a physical exam, and a review of your personal and family medical history. 

The physicians use this information to customize a diet and exercise plan that’s right for your body type, your goal weight, and your lifestyle. 

Your MM Jersey City Breathing Center provider carefully monitors your progress and can make necessary adjustments to your weight-loss plan based on your results. 

They continue to guide you into making healthier choices about the foods you eat and how much activity you get each day. Your doctor also evaluates the effect your weight loss has on existing high blood pressure and other chronic diseases.

When you reach a healthy weight, the MM Jersey City Breathing Center staff can provide you with recommendations for maintaining it for the long term, decreasing your risk for chronic health conditions.
