Excess weight and obesity can increase your risk for a long list of conditions that include high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol. Shedding excess body weight can help improve your mobility, cardiovascular health, and overall quality of life.
Although most of us understand the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, misinformation and diet fads often make it difficult to determine the healthiest and most effective way to achieve lasting weight loss.
At Saravit Wellness, Dr. Dunabr takes a lifestyle-based approach to losing weight. Traditional dieting typically relies on temporary and unsustainable changes that often result in a frustrating cycle of losing and then gaining back the same few pounds. Dr. Dunbar focuses on proper nutrition and helping you establish healthy habits to achieve safe and sustainable weight loss.
Dieters often struggle with keeping the weight off after the diet is over. Lifestyle-based weight loss goes beyond temporary diet fads and aims to address the underlying issues like poor nutrition and unhealthy food choices that contribute to unsuccessful weight loss. The goal of lifestyle medicine is to help you develop healthier skills for improving and maintaining your overall health.
Dr. Dunbar partners with you to develop the right weight-loss plan for your needs. During your first appointment, Dr. Dubar evaluates your current nutrition, activity level, sleep health, hydration, and energy levels.
You also discuss your weight-loss goals and motivations for losing weight. When it comes to achieving and maintaining weight loss for the long-term, your mindset and desire for a healthier life are extremely important.
After your evaluation, Dr. Dunbar works with you to determine the most effective ways to achieve your weight-loss goals. Dr. Dunbar may recommend certain dietary changes, activities, and lifestyle modifications to help you lose weight. Dr. Dunbar may also suggest ongoing coaching to ensure you’re developing the right skills for a healthier life.
Losing weight on your own can be a difficult and frustrating process. To speak with Dr. Dunbar about your weight loss goals, book your appointment by phone or online today.
