Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss significant?

When you’re overweight or obese, you’re at risk for several chronic diseases. The excess weight you’re carrying around puts extra stress on your body and your organs, leading to chronic medical problems, such as:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

Losing weight when your body mass index (BMI) exceeds the recommended height and weight is crucial. According to the CDC, even a modest weight loss of 5%-10% of your weight significantly improves your health.


How can I lose weight effectively?

Losing weight isn’t easy, and it may take time for your body to react to your lifestyle changes. Losing weight isn’t about the latest fad diet or starving yourself; it’s about long-term changes that include:


Being physically active is a vital component of losing weight. You don’t have to run a marathon or work out for hours every day. Adding 30 minutes of physical activity into your daily routine increases your chances of weight loss and a healthier mind and body.


Your diet plays the most significant role in your weight loss success. At Sage Wellness and Medspa, Ms. Gonzalez offers customized diet plans to help you shed excess weight effectively.

You should steer clear of heavily processed foods and refined carbohydrates. To lose weight, modify your diet to include lean proteins, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and focus on hydration.


Sometimes, diet and exercise aren’t enough to lose weight. In this case, Ms. Gonzalez may prescribe medications to help you initiate long-term weight loss, improve your diet, and add exercise.


Can medical weight loss help?

If you’ve tried to lose weight without success, Sage Wellness and Medspa offer medical weight loss programs to help you reach your goals.

A medical weight loss program is designed to improve weight loss odds through customized plans and one-on-one coaching.

Ms. Gonzalez offers personalized meal plans, customized exercise and physical activity programs, and weekly check-ins to review your progress.

If you require weight loss medications, Ms. Gonzalez evaluates your health and weight loss goals to determine the correct treatment route for your needs. She’s there with you every step of the way to ensure your success.
