What does weight management mean?

Weight management involves actively maintaining a healthy weight corresponding to your height and physical composition. A healthy body mass index (BMI) typically falls between 18.5 and 24.9. By keeping your weight within this range, you can enjoy numerous health benefits and promote overall well-being.

What makes weight management so difficult?

Maintaining a healthy weight is a struggle faced by millions of Americans. While diet and exercise may seem like a simple solution for weight loss, many factors can make losing weight challenging, including:

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy
  • Poor diet
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Stress
  • Underlying medical conditions

The experienced primary care providers at EMC Walk-In and Wellness understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to weight management. Many factors can get in the way of consistent weight loss. The team works with you to create a plan that addresses the various challenges of losing weight.

Is weight management really that important?

Weight management is essential to maintain your health and well-being. Excess weight strains your body’s organs, tissues, and joints. It can slow many of your bodily processes, including respiration and digestion, and increase your risk of chronic diseases, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Certain cancers

Carrying extra weight also affects your mobility, range of motion, and energy levels. Losing 5-10% of your body mass can significantly improve your health and quality of life, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Working with an experienced weight-loss expert ensures you receive the individualized support you deserve to achieve long-term results.

What are the most effective strategies for weight management?

At EMC Walk-In and Wellness, the team develops personalized strategies to help you lose weight. Your personalized weight-loss plan may include:

  • Lipotropic injections
  • Skinny shot
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Stress management
  • Exercise support
  • Supplements

  • Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy

It's important to remember that weight loss is a journey, and a comprehensive, individualized approach is key to achieving sustainable results.
