There are many factors that can cause people to become overweight or obese, our goal is to find the cause of your weight issue and help you move past those barriers.

- Potential medical causes for your weight gain
- Stress levels and sleep patterns
- Your feelings towards eating, food and any personal triggers that might cause you to overeat.
- Family history and blood chemistry
Not only will losing weight help you to enjoy life more fully and feel good about yourself, losing weight also lowers your chance of having high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, heart related diseases and cancer.If you already have Type 2 Diabetes, losing the weight may help decrease the amount of medications you need to take.
According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, losing only 5 to 10 percent of your body weight severely lowers your chance of getting heart disease. This means if you weigh over 200 pounds, you only need to lose 10 pounds to make a difference. Losing that amount of weight will also improve your blood pressure, blood flow, and cholesterol levels. Making small changes, through a physician-led weight loss program will help you lose the weight at a healthy “doctor approved” pace and allow you to keep the weight off.
