OBESITY - a National Epidemic affecting families
We are a nation obsessed with our weight. Americans spend around $40 billion a year on weight loss products, programs and diet aids. Yet we still can’t control our weight. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that obesity is fast approaching tobacco as the top underlying preventable cause of death in the USA. The question is why aren’t we asking our medical professionals to help us instead of inexperienced weight loss product salespersons?
Dr. Deirdre McMullen has been trained to help her patients achieve their healthy weight loss goals. She and her staff are looking forward to utilizing the physician-supervised weight loss program to help bring about positive change in patients lives.
A primary goal to our approach is to break food addictions and help patients reach a safe and healthy target weight quickly. Most importantly, our program teaches clients how to maintain their weight loss permanently by adopting healthy habits in place of their addictions. Although the overall program is geared to adults, by teaching parents healthy eating habits, the whole family can benefit.
Individualized medical treatment is the key to treating this disease. Dr. McMullen understands the complex factors that are related to weight gain- individual psychology, contributing illnesses, prescription medication and the genetics of individual body composition. Whether clients are suffering from severe health issues due to extreme excess weight or merely looking to lose 15-20 excess pounds for cosmetic reasons, all receive a full medical consultation with detailed measurements of their body mass and basal metabolic rate to help predict and follow weight loss.
