Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss critical to my health?

Excess body weight is one of the leading causes of numerous medical conditions, many of which are life-threatening. These conditions include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Atherosclerosis (hardened arteries)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

If your weight is far above the ideal level, you can get problems like skin rashes, have difficulty moving about, and might develop mental health problems like depression and anxiety. With all this in mind, weight loss is a sensible choice that can help you eliminate these problems.

How does total body mass composition help with weight loss?

Body mass composition calculates how much body fat you have and how it's distributed around your body. It also assesses your muscle and bone mass and water levels.  

Healthy bodies have less fat and more muscle. Analyzing your body mass composition gives you a goal to work towards that ensures you have a healthy body and not just a thin one.

The expert Vital Clinic and Spa physicians calculate your total body composition and offer advice and support to help you achieve your ideal weight.

Successful weight loss is a considerable challenge for many people. Using body mass composition in addition to or instead of the less precise body mass index (BMI) measure of healthy weight, you have more of a chance of reaching your goals.

What medical treatments can help with weight loss?

There are many ways in which the medical professionals at Vital Clinic and Spa can help you with weight loss. They offer expert diet and exercise advice and support that you can rely on to be accurate and effective. 

They're also able to monitor your health regularly, so you know you're not causing yourself any harm with fad diets and unproven supplements.

Vital Clinic and Spa uses the NutriMed Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) to help with weight loss. VLCD is an eating plan that produces dramatic weight loss results - in the region of 3-4 lbs per week (42 lbs over 12 weeks). This diet is approved by the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Weight-Control Information Network.

The diet consists of various meal replacement shakes and tasty bars. On a VLCD, you limit your intake of carbohydrates, and your body burns fat instead (in the form of ketones) for energy. Most patients find their appetite and food cravings fade away after a couple of days on the VLCD diet.

Vital Clinic and Spa also offers different programs to suit your requirements, such as assisting with intermittent fasting, and prescribes medications to assist with weight loss where necessary.
