What is Obesity?

By definition, obesity is BMI over 30. BMI is calculated using height and weight. There are many online tools to use to calculate your BMI such as this one (Click Here). Overweight is defined as BMI between 25-30. A BMI is an important tool in measure an aspect of health but that is all it is. It does not define health and wellness and more than other health markers. Happiness, and comfort, and personal health and weight goals take precedence over any single scale such as BMI.  

Treatment objectives

Some people may have a certain weight or BMI goal in mind that they would like to reach.  The doctors at Tailored MD are certainly here to help you with those goals and can utilize any of the tools and techniques listed below to help you along the way. Some people may have different goals, maybe they would like to attain a level of muscle mass and fat loss in order to play with their children or grandkids without getting out of breath. Maybe someone wants to focus less on food or has anxiety about food. Another individual may have weight or adiposity related diseases such as fatty liver disease, type two diabetes, hyperlipidemia and they would like to manage these conditions without adding or increasing medication. All of these are good reasons to speak with a Tailored MD doctor and focus on ways to lower body fat.

Treatment Options

Any successful weight or body fat loss program includes a dietary plan. As you may know, there are thousands of diets out there and no single diet is king. The Keto diet, Adkins diet, calorie counting, intermittent fasting, Paleo diet, are all effective for some people and not for others. The truth is, they all fundamentally work the same way. The key to long term dietary success is understanding how diet and metabolism effects weight. Sticking to a plan that fits your goals and lifestyles.  Exercise is also an important part of overall health and can effect weight, especially in keeping weight off, but exercise is a far number two when compared to diet.  In addition to diet and exercise, a Tailored MD doctor may recommend adjusting medications. For example, medications can be added to help lower appetite or effect glucose metabolism. Other medicines that you are taking may make weight loss harder and your Tailored MD physician will look over these to see if adjustments can be made.
