Obesity Q&A

What is obesity?

Obesity is a common medical concern that develops due to a variety of reasons. Obesity is defined as having a body weight index (BMI) of 30 or higher. You can calculate your BMI by multiplying your body weight in pounds by 703, dividing that number by your height in inches, and dividing by your height in inches again. 

If you struggle to lose weight on your own, see the experts at KairWell Weight and Wellness for an evaluation and a personalized weight loss plan.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

If you’re obese, some of the many benefits you can expect after losing weight include:

  • More energy
  • Less body fat
  • Improved body contours
  • Better muscle definition
  • Low risk of chronic disease
  • Self-confidence

Weight loss can help you look and feel your best, keep you healthier, and increase your life expectancy. Kair Well Weight and Wellness uses intensive behavioral therapy and incremental behavior change strategies to increase your chance of long-term success.

Is obesity treatment right for me?

If you’re obese or weigh more than you’d like to, a KairWell Weight and Wellness specialist designs a weight loss plan tailored to your needs. They weigh you, assess your body mass index (BMI), and check your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. 

Your provider completes a physical exam and could suggest that you undergo blood tests, urine tests, heart-function testing, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out nutrient deficiencies and other medical problems. 

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

During obesity treatment (medical weight loss), KairWell Weight and Wellness providers could suggest one or more of the following treatments:

Nutrition counseling

KairWell Weight and Wellness offers nutrition counseling to help you plan meals and menus during your weight-loss journey. They focus on mindful eating, the DietMaster Pro app for meal plans and logs, and behavioral change strategies. 

Personal training

The KairWell Weight and Wellness team offers one-on-one personal training to help you achieve exceptional fitness, weight loss, and muscle definition.

Phentermine

Phentermine is a weight-loss medication that reduces your appetite, making it easier to eat fewer calories for weight loss.

Minimally invasive weight loss surgery

KairWell Weight and Wellness partners with highly trained medical professionals to offer minimally invasive weight loss surgery using robotics technology.
