Medically-Supervised Weight Loss

Why Medically-Supervised Weight Loss?

Obesity is an epidemic with one in 3 adult Americans classified as overweight or obese. With that said, obesity is one of the leading modifiable factors in the development of chronic disease. Obesity-related health conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. The diagram below shows some of the chronic conditions and medical complications of obesity.
At Aspire Health and Wellness, we view obesity from a disease perspective. With our medically-supervised weight loss program, we seek to help prevent or stop the progression of chronic disease and its related medical complications by helping our clients reach and maintain a healthy weight.
We provide guidance and support to assist you in being successful in your weight loss journey. Whether you only need to lose 10 pounds or more than 100 pounds, we are here to help. Don't delay... call us today.

Why Losing Belly Fat is Important

High Risk Waist Circumference

Males - More than 40 inches
Females - More than 35 inches

There are 2 types of body fat. The first is body fat which is located between your skin and the organs, which is known as subcutaneous fat. Secondly, there is visceral fat, which is located between the internal organs. This type of fat (visceral fat) has been linked to chronic diseases such as type II diabetes and heart disease.
If most of your fat is around your waist (abdomen) rather than at your hips, you’re at a higher risk for type II diabetes and heart disease.
Your risk goes up with a waist size that is greater than 40 inches for men or greater than 35 inches for women.
Your true waistline is the circumference around your abdomen measured at the level of the belly button.
To correctly measure your waist size, stand and place a tape measure around your abdomen at your umbilicus (belly button).  Take the end of the tape measure around your back until the tape measure meets the starting tip. Measure your waist just after you breathe out or exhale.
