W8MD Weight Loss Program
Benefits Of Weight Loss
A little weight loss goes a long way!
According to Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center and of the Yale Preventive Medicine Center –
90% of all diabetes
80% of heart disease
and 60% of cancers
Research has shown that losing 10% of your body weight – or less – can have big payoffs for your health as reported by this article on WebMD. Some doctors have reported that they have successfully taken patients off blood pressure and cholesterol-lowering medications after the patients lost small amounts of weight, Champagne says.
Apple versus the pear shaped body!
Losing a little weight can be especially beneficial for people who store their excess weight in their abdomens, rather than in their hips. This ‘apple’ pattern of weight distribution means you’re at greater risk for heart disease – but it also means you should have an easier time losing the weight, and thus reversing the risk, experts say.
At W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America, we have seen this in many of our patients, according to Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD, a practicing obesity and sleep medicine physician and medical director of W8MD’s Philadelphia and New York City locations. As little as 5 – 10 pounds of weight loss, if maintained over the years, has been shown to reduce the risk by as much as 40 percent in research!
“Having lost about 20 pounds and still going good, I went to see my cardiologist for follow up. I was pleasantly surprised to see my blood work that showed my cholesterol and other tests were in the ideal range and I was taken off of all 5 medications” says one of the patients that successfully lost the weight with W8MD.
The best part of W8MD s that we accept health insurance for the visits so you do not have to pay out of pocket for these services. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurances are now mandated to provide coverage for weight loss.
