Weight Loss Q&A

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Weight loss offers many benefits to those carrying around extra pounds. However, you don’t need to drop down to your high school weight to get those benefits. Losing as little as 5% of your current weight can:

  • Lower blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood glucose levels
  • Boost energy 
  • Reduce joint stress
  • Decrease risk of diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer
  • Improve sleep
  • Ease aches and pains

Weight loss also benefits your mental health, boosting confidence and self-esteem. 

Mrs. Christensen is a primary care provider who takes a holistic approach to health and well-being at Dynamic Health & Wellness Center. She understands the connection between body and mind and how it affects your overall health.

The key to long-term wellness in general, and weight management in particular, is recognizing and treating a person’s mental and physical health as a whole, not as individual parts.

What can I expect during a weight loss consultation?

You can expect compassionate, patient-centered care when seeing Mrs. Christensen for a weight loss consultation at Dynamic Health & Wellness Center. She aims to understand your whole health, so she can design a program that helps you reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Mrs. Christensen asks detailed questions about your weight and health goals, medical and family history, usual diet and exercise routine, sleep habits, and daily stressors. She performs a physical exam and runs lab work to assess general health and look for health conditions that might affect your weight loss, such as thyroid disease. 

Mrs. Christensen also asks about your mental well-being and may run a psychological test to assess your emotional state.

She uses the information she gathers during your consultation to create your personalized weight loss plan. 

What tools help with weight loss?
