Love Yourself, Love Your Health

We spend Valentine’s Day showering our loved ones with gifts and cards to show them how much they mean to us. It is just as important to show ourselves some love! Love yourself by taking charge of your health!

Did you know that about 42 percent of adults in the U.S. struggle with their weight and obesity? Unfortunately, we lead such busy lives and often neglect ourselves and our well-being. Unchecked weight gain can lead to many preventable medical conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers (just to name a few).

It doesn’t take much weight loss to see benefits to your health. Just losing 5 % of your body weight can decrease your visceral fat and improve fatty liver. Losing 5 – 10 % of your weight can prevent the progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes, improve existing Type 2 diabetes, reduce cardiovascular risk and regulate menstrual cycles in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Losing 10 – 15 % of your body weight can improve blood pressure, cholesterol, vitamin D levels, decrease the risk of weight-related cancers and improve obstructive sleep apnea.

Of course we cannot change our genetics, but we can deal ourselves a better hand by taking charge of our lifestyle and our metabolism. Now that is easier said than done. But at the La Chelé Lifestyle Medical Weight Loss Center, we can help to show you the best path to losing and keeping off the weight.

Show yourself some love and call for a Medical Weight Loss consultation with Dr. Erin Saltzman. Look and feel your best while you improve your overall health! Dr. Saltzman is now seeing patients in both the New Hope and Newtown office locations.
