Weight Loss Q & A

What is a healthy weight?

To determine whether you’re a healthy weight for your height, you can calculate your body mass index (BMI). Although BMI doesn’t account for the difference between muscle weight and excess fat, it serves as the standard measure for categorizing between being overweight and obese.

You can calculate your BMI by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in meters squared. Alternatively, you can use the BMI calculator on Dr. Jabaly’s website for free.

A healthy body weight translates to a BMI of 18-25. Overweight is 25-30, and anything above a BMI of 30 qualifies as obesity.

How does weight loss influence overall health?

Being overweight or obese are risk factors for many serious health problems, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses
  • Certain cancers such as endometrial, colon, and gallbladder
  • Decreased quality of life

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, losing even 5-10% of your body weight can significantly reduce your risk of these health problems.

What should I expect from a medical weight loss program?

First, Dr. Jabaly discusses your concerns, weight loss goals, and medical history during a consultation. He works closely with you to develop a customized weight loss plan based on your individual needs.

With a holistic approach to weight loss, Dr. Jabaly discovers the underlying cause of your weight gain and targets the medical, psychological, and behavioral factors. He uses this information to create a personalized plan that’s just as easy to follow as it is effective.

Dr. Jabaly doesn’t sell prepackaged foods or supplements and won’t have you count carbs or calories to lose weight.

How can I get rid of stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise?

Once your weight loss journey is underway, you may find that fat tends to linger in certain “problem areas,” despite your commitment to healthy living. For optimal fat reduction results, Dr. Jabaly offers SculpSure noninvasive laser body contouring services in conjunction with his weight loss programs.
