People are overweight for many reasons, including overeating, lack of physical activity, and genetic, health and lifestyle factors that can impact weight. Extra weight increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, certain types of cancer, sleep apnea and more.
Weight loss will help lower your risk of developing future health problems. Finding a reduced weight that works for you—a weight you can maintain—is the key to achieving long-term, successful weight management.
It starts with healthy eating
The harmful effects of an unhealthy diet are well-documented, with more than 35% of the U.S. population classified as “obese.” We’ll teach you how to identify—and eliminate—unhealthy, processed foods filled with sugar, salt and fat from your diet. We’ll counsel you on strategies for building a diet centered on healthy protein, whole grains, vegetables and fruit.
Reduce your hunger cravings
Crafting a healthier diet is a step-by-step process that requires commitment and support from you, your family and your team at Olivera. A combination of an FDA-approved appetite suppressant and individualized, one-on-one office visits will help you stick to your plan and break the cycle of hunger cravings.
Find an activity level that works for you
We’ll work closely with you to develop a plan for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days a week. As you shed weight, your energy level will improve. Making time for daily exercise is essential to long-term weight loss and weight management. Finding an activity level that suits your physical abilities is the key to building that exercise habit!
Embrace a healthy lifestyle
Stress can cause a number of problems associated with weight gain, including overeating, lack of proper sleep and the desire to comfort ourselves with snacks and sweets. We will provide you with strategies to better manage stress, enabling you to successfully lose weight and maintain a healthier, happier existence.
