Weight gain as you get older

When you were a kid, you’d play outside for hours and participate in many different sports. But as you got older, your physical activity probably declined. And if you ended up with a desk job, you know it can leave you sedentary for hours at a time.

This adds inches of fat to places like your thighs, stomach, and arms. Not only do you physically see and feel it, but not staying active can have an effect on your mental health too. Scientists found that physical activity decreases tension and stabilizes mood.

If you’re overweight or obese, it can have a big impact on your overall health. Some of the consequences include:

If left untreated, obesity can lead to death. Our weight loss programs help you incorporate the exercise you enjoy back into your routine. Don’t let your extra weight derail your health — we’re here to help you get back in shape.

Lose weight fast with the keto diet

One of the ways Naima Cheema, MD might suggest for you to lose weight is with the ketogenic diet. This is a high-fat, low-carb diet that offers one of the quickest ways possible to lose weight. By consuming fat in up to 90% of your calories, your body is forced to burn stored fat rather than its preferred source of fuel — glucose. 

People who follow the ketogenic diet can expect to lose up to two pounds a week. Some people find they lose up to ten pounds the first week, before losing the average of two pounds in succeeding weeks. 

The keto diet focuses on lowering your carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. For this reason, some people find that it’s easier to follow than some other traditional diets that focus on eliminating fat.

Some keto-friendly foods include:

Keto greatly reduces your blood sugar and insulin level, making it a great diet for those who are diabetic. It’s also been shown to benefit a variety of other chronic health conditions like heart disease, cancer, and epilepsy. 

Medications and supplements

Dr. Cheema may suggest a variety of medications and/or supplements to help your body to adjust to your weight loss plan. These can help boost your energy, make you feel full for longer, and allow you to burn fat at a higher rate. 

Here are some of the medications and supplements we use:
