Weight Loss

Weight LossA vast majority of patients that see Dr. Plucknett are keen on losing weight. It’s proven that countless Americans weigh more than they should, and of course, weight gain is a precursor to potential health risks. Most do not understand the actual causes behind this epidemic, due to the numerous myths and misunderstandings surrounding the sensitive topic. Today the American nutritional regime is encumbered with sugar, unhealthy fats, and additional salt. This diet can have shattering effects on our health, including abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension and high fasting glucose. The good news is that weight loss can frequently overturn these health issues. Also, weight loss can also encourage better-quality sleep, increased energy and promote mood stability.

Doctor Guided Weight Loss

During the last decade, physicians, health professionals, and researchers have come to recognize that nutrition is at the very nucleus of living a high-quality, healthy life. More than 90 percent of Americans lack in a minimum of 11 nutrients. Nutrient deficiencies can make you vulnerable to poor health and chronic disease, as well as support uncomfortable symptoms, such as insomnia, weight gain, or memory issues. Sustenance is the keystone of managing your overall health. All-inclusive lab testing can help establish nutrient deficiencies, food allergies and sensitivities, as well as your body’s toxic load, which may be hampering nutrient absorption and decelerating your metabolism.

Safeguarding your body is completely nourished is truly a fine art—not only do you need to recognize the ideal food options for your body, but you also need to appreciate when supplemental support is essential to fuel your body to meet day-to-day demands.
