Weight Loss Q & A

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?

There are many factors that contribute to struggles with weight loss. The modern food supply is part of the problem. With fast food on virtually every corner and grocery stores stocked with highly processed foods, it’s no wonder that so many people struggle with their weight. 

In addition, lifestyle factors can also affect your ability to lose weight. When you spend more in front of screens at home, work, and school, it leaves little time for staying active. 

Factor in high levels of stress and poor sleep quality can also contribute to your weight loss struggles as well. 

What are the health risks of carrying extra weight?

Carrying extra pounds can adversely affect every organ and system in your body. There are few things that can have such a dramatic effect on how you feel and function each day. 

Some health risks of carrying extra weight include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Dementia
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction

These are just a few of the adverse effects you can experience if you carry an unhealthy amount of extra weight, but there may be more complications. 

What kind of weight loss support is available?

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried multiple ways to lose weight. You might even have achieved a degree of success, only to find the weight returning soon after. 

Mr. Henderson begins by working with you to understand your history with weight loss and the factors which contribute to your current weight. This helps him create a customized weight loss plan that works with your needs and goals. 

You’ll learn how to improve your nutrition and get the fuel your body needs to function well. Many people are surprised at the benefits they receive through simple lifestyle changes like swapping water for sugary sodas and coffee drinks. 

In addition, you’ll also learn how to incorporate more exercise into your daily routine. Finding ways to stay active doesn’t have to be something that you don’t look forward to. Once you get used to the feeling of pushing your body to new limits and reaching new goals, you’ll come to enjoy the effects of increased physical activity.
