The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that more than 38 percent of adults in the United States are clinically obese. Obesity is a major risk factor for many health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

Proper Diet and Exercise
Nutrition and exercise are key components of any weight loss program. If you don't already exercise, the World Health Organization recommends getting at least 30 minutes of moderately intense physical activity five times per week. This should burn enough calories to control weight gain and keep your heart and blood vessels healthy. As for your diet, it's important to eat a balanced mixture of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, proteins, and other vitamin-rich options while limiting fatty, salty, fried, and sugary foods and beverages.
If you're not sure where to start making adjustments to your diet and exercise habits, our physicians can help you develop a weight loss management plan that supports your personal health goals, including nutritional advice and recommendations for specific exercises.
Care for Medical Conditions
Some medical conditions may contribute to obesity, including thyroid complications and mental health issues. Certain prescriptions can also have side effects that can lead to weight gain. The staff at the Razi Medical Group will evaluate your current status and help treat any underlying conditions that may be contributing to struggles with weight loss. For some individuals, FDA-approved weight loss medications may be appropriate. This includes people who are obese, have serious health problems caused by obesity, or are unable to lose weight through diet and exercise alone.
