Are you ready to lose weight with the help of a medical expert? As a member of the Obesity Medicine Association, Dr. Mantha will will develop a plan to bring your health, metabolism, and weight into balance through nutrition, exercise and health coaching.
The Verve Medical Weight Loss program is comprehensive, personalized weight loss program. At Verve, we understand that weight management requires comprehensive evaluation, diagnosing prior to the acquisition of weight-related diseases, and planning treatment based on diet, exercise and behavioral counseling.
Based upon the initial weight loss evaluation, a detailed history is obtained and Body Composition Analysis is performed, using our state of art technology.
Body composition analysis provides us information regarding weight, BMI, water and fat percentages of the body. BCA not only helps us plan a diet based upon on total calories expenditure but also allows us to accurately monitor the follow-up weight loss.
The most significant part of weight management aims at losing fat percentage from the body. BCA also helps us monitor and preserve the muscle mass while trying to loose weight as it is very crucial to preserve muscle mass during the weight loss period.
What are the health risks of being overweight?
Fat is more complex than you may realize. It communicates with other organs in your body, releases hormones that regulate metabolism, and produces substances associated with disease development. This widespread influence explains why being overweight or obese are so dangerous for your overall health.
The more weight you carry, the more risk you have for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, kidney disease, and fatty liver disease. Obesity may even increase the chance of developing certain types of cancer.
Even if you’re generally healthy, being overweight strains your bones, muscles, and joints. Your knees and ankles are especially vulnerable to the extra wear-and-tear, which increases the risk for developing arthritis.
