Nutrition & Weight Loss
Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?
When you think about your weight, you might focus on the way that your jeans fit or the way you look. However, your weight has a significant impact on your overall health. For example, being overweight or obese increases your risk of a wide range of health conditions such as:
- Cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
- Certain cancers
You may also find that maintaining a healthy body weight helps you feel more energetic.
Why is nutrition important?
Your body needs certain nutrients for optimal functionality, and ideally, you should consume those nutrients through the food you eat. However, the standard American diet typically includes far more processed and prepackaged foods that are nutritionally deficient.
Additionally, Americans tend to eat more meat, dairy, and refined grains and fewer vegetables and fruits — which is where many of the essential vitamins and minerals are found.
When you don’t have proper nutrition, your body doesn’t have the fuel it needs to function. As a result, you may feel tired; your skin might look dull; you might feel a bit sick all the time, but not quite be able to put your finger on what’s wrong.
Additionally, if your body has to make do with inadequate nutrition, your chances of overtaxing your body systems and developing chronic health conditions increase.

Then he works with you to create a meal plan. Your personalized plan incorporates delicious foods that you enjoy that provide the nutrients you need, all while maintaining the calorie deficit needed for sustained weight loss.
