Weight Loss Q & A

What are the health risks of being overweight?

Being overweight or obese has become a pressing health issue that affects about 70% of all adults in the United States. While most people focus on how being overweight makes them look, the truth is that carrying too much excess fat is more than an aesthetic problem — it’s associated with a variety of serious health problems, including:

  • Greater risk of developing heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer
  • Higher risk of having unhealthy blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Higher risk of developing high blood pressure
  • Increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke
  • Higher risk of developing sleep apnea or breathing problems
  • Greater chance of developing anxiety or depression
  • Greater likelihood of experiencing chronic pain or physical difficulties

By simply losing 5-10% of your body weight, you can substantially reduce your risk of developing the chronic and damaging health problems associated with being overweight.

How can optimal nutrition help me reach my goals?  

Optimal nutrition is one of the best ways to sustainably shed excess body weight. But you don’t have to drop a single pound to benefit from a healthy diet — clean eating also has a direct and positive impact on your short-term health and wellness. It helps your body build bone, power muscle, repair and replace tissues, and keeps your brain active.

For people of all ages, the basics of good nutrition simply mean eating a variety of nutrient-rich, wholesome foods while avoiding as many calorie-dense, processed foods as possible. A healthy diet:

Includes high-quality foods

Unrefined, minimally processed whole foods, including vegetables, fruit, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean sources of protein, form the basis of any healthy diet.

Limits or eliminates low-quality foods

Highly processed snacks, sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, refined grain products such as white bread or pasta, fried foods, and foods rich in unhealthy fats should be an occasional treat, not a staple.

What is a ketogenic diet?

Dr. Biondi and her team have helped many patients find long-term weight-loss success with Ideal Protein®, a medically supervised high-protein diet that promotes fat loss, helps maintain muscle mass, and supports your overall vitality and energy.

Sticking to a ketogenic diet, one that’s low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and stresses healthy fats, helps your body burn stored fat more efficiently without negatively impacting your lean tissue. People who follow the Ideal Protein diet are more likely to lose weight and keep it off — all without having to feel hungry or exhausted.

In addition to promoting efficient fat loss, the Ideal Protein plan helps your body reestablish pancreatic function and normalize your blood sugar levels.

The team at Victoria Biondi, MD takes a comprehensive, customized, whole-person approach to weight loss. By giving you the specific resources, tools, and support you need, they can help you achieve long-term results. Your success is their success!
