You know there are lots of reasons why losing those extra pounds would be good for you. Losing even just 5%-10% of your body weight can significantly improve your long-term health, lowering your risks for heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and other serious medical conditions that can reduce your lifespan and quality of life.
And, it’s also true that when you successfully shed unwanted pounds, you can feel better about yourself and your body. It’s easier to get active when you’re not overweight, and your self-esteem can get a real boost.
However, for many people, weight loss is easier to dream about than to succeed with. And that’s not necessarily because you lack the willpower to stick to your diet and exercise regimen. The medical science of weight loss management is complex, requiring expert knowledge to achieve lasting results.
At Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic, aka Living Water Clinic, our team of family medicine doctors includes obesity medicine specialist Angelina Neria, MD, who works with new and existing patients from our locations in Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California.
Here’s what you need to know about how weight loss management support from the primary care specialists at Living Water Clinic could help you this summer.
With Dr. Neria, you have weight loss science on your side. That makes your weight loss plan much more likely to succeed and to keep you in good health while losing weight. If you hit any frustrating weight loss plateaus, Dr. Neria can help you understand what’s going on with your body and how to continue your weight loss journey.
Dr. Neria begins with a comprehensive examination looking for any underlying conditions that could complicate weight loss for you. If you have a chronic health condition or hormone imbalance, Dr. Neria helps you address that issue before continuing with your weight loss plan so your diet and exercise efforts are most effective.
Dr. Neria works with you to create a weight loss plan that will work for you, with milestones, goals, and techniques that you can handle and really stick to. Additionally, she focuses on health and wellness for your whole body and mind and can recommend emotional support or mental health resources to help with issues that could be tangled up in your relationship with food.
You’ll receive daily activity and calorie requirements, as well as regular monitoring to keep you on track, motivated, and healthy. You may benefit from nutritional counseling or a meal plan designed especially for your nutrition needs during healthy weight loss. Dr. Neria may also prescribe medications to help you manage your appetite and sense of fullness.
