It’s Not Just the Numbers on the Scale that Matter
When it comes to being healthy, and carrying a healthy amount of weight, it isn’t all about how much you weigh.
According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases reports that the following health number targets are the goals you should aim for when it comes to healthy weight loss:
- Target BMI: 18.5 – 24.9
- Waist Size: Men: less than 40 in; Women: less than 35 in.
- Blood Pressure: 120/80mm Hg or less
- LDL (Bad Cholesterol): Less than 100 mg/dl
- HDL (Good Cholesterol): Men: More than 40mg/dl; Women: More than 50mg/dl
- Triglycerides: Less than 150mg/dl
- Blood Sugar (Fasting): Less than 100mg/dl
Not sure what your health numbers are? At Balanced Well-Being Healthcare, our 12-week comprehensive weight loss program is based on getting you these numbers and designing a health plan around what you need.
90% of Disease/Weight Management Comes from Lifestyle and Dietary Changes
We want you to succeed with your weight loss goals which is why we offer our patients our First Line Therapy program catered to your individual needs.
To find effective and long-lasting success with healthy weight loss, we start with looking at your blood work to analyze extended lipid panels, LDL particle numbers and size, inflammatory and oxidative stress markets, and Vitamin D levels. We also take a look at your full hormonal panels including thyroid and sex hormones, full vitamin, mineral, amino acid, antioxidant markers, genetic markers for methylation and cholesterol metabolism to see where we need to start to help you succeed.
Focusing on Healthy Weight Loss Can Have Far-Reaching Effects
If you need a little help in the motivation area for getting your weight where it needs to be, consider the risks if you don’t do something about it.
Excess weight has been shown to increase the risk for various health problems like:
- sleep apnea
- fatty liver disease
- kidney disease
- pregnancy problems, like high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and increased risk for C-section
- type 2 diabetes
- high blood pressure
- heart disease and strokes
- certain types of cancer
Ask yourself, “What is keeping me from reaching my weight-loss goals?” Whatever obstacle is or has been in your path, make this year be the year when you overcome those obstacles. Don’t be afraid to include others in your weight-loss goals. When you team-up with Balanced Well-Being Healthcare, you get the professional help of doctors and nutritionists to help you succeed.
