Weight Management Q&A

Why is weight management important?

Maintaining a healthy weight doesn’t just improve your confidence and overall fitness. Your weight now strongly influences your health later in life. Losing just 5% to 10% of your overall weight lowers your risk of serious chronic conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility 
  • Certain cancers

To avoid complications from these diseases, health experts recommend maintaining a healthy weight throughout your life. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, adults should try to stay within 10 pounds of what they weighed at the age of 21.

What are the benefits of weight management?

If you struggle to maintain a healthy weight, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans are overweight, and diet fads and gimmicks typically don’t deliver sustainable results. Fortunately, you don’t have to shed tons of weight to reap the benefits of weight loss. Even moderate weight loss can help:

  • Relieve joint pain
  • Improve digestion
  • Decrease the risk of certain cancers
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduce diabetes complications
  • Protect against heart disease
  • Improve blood sugar levels

A proper weight management plan may also fight fatigue by boosting your energy levels and putting less pressure on your back to relieve back pain.

What goes into creating a personalized weight loss plan?

Dr. Granger and the team at Nutritional Wellness use a variety of tests and health information to create your personalized weight loss plan. After reviewing your medical history and learning more about your current diet and lifestyle habits, they can get a better understanding of what works for your body and what doesn’t.

As an experienced chiropractic physician, Dr. Granger has special training in Nutrition Response Testing®. This unique treatment identifies tissues and organs in the body that aren’t functioning properly by checking the connection of nerves from the brain through the rest of the body. The team may check certain pressure points and reflexes to make their analysis of your potential nutritional deficiencies.

Once they target your nutritional deficiencies and imbalances, the team creates a nutrition plan that works with your body for sustainable weight loss. At Nutritional Wellness, your weight management plan will always be holistic and medication-free. This plan may include a specific diet, exercise, and supplement regime that can help you maintain a healthy weight.
