Reasons, Risks and Rewards: Learn the Basics of Body Weight

People are overweight for many reasons, from overeating and lack of physical activity, to 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 long-term, successful weight management.

Healthy Eating: Where Weight Loss Starts

You hear it over and over: “Eat healthy.” But what does it mean and how do you do it?

The harmful effects of an unhealthy diet are well-documented, with more than 35% of the U.S. population now classified as “obese.” We’re surrounded by processed foods filled with sugar, salt and fat. Learn how to identify—and eliminate—these unhealthy foods from your diet. We give you the strategies through nutrition consultation, information and tools you need to build a diet that centers on healthy protein, whole grains, vegetables and fruit. And, yes, you can do it!
