Weight loss can significantly contribute to improved general health and well-being. Many programs are available for weight loss, including dieting, nutrition consultation, bariatric surgery, physician-prescribed medications, and other commercial low calorie diets. With so many options, it’s hard to know what’s best for our own needs — that’s where Regional West Weight Loss Options can help.
Why lose weight?
Weight loss benefits outweigh the medical risks. Achieving a healthy weight improves self-esteem and provides physical, emotional, and psychological benefits. Research shows that even a modest five to 10 percent weight reduction results in favorable health outcomes, like improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol, range of motion and stress on joints, and glucose levels.
