What is obesity?

What is Obesity or Overweight?

For adults, a “body mass index” (BMI) of 30 and over in general is considered to be obese although BMI may not be an ideal tool to determine the risk. It is far more important to understand the distribution of the weight, body fat composition etc. to understand the risks associated with Obesity.

Understanding the risks

You could be in nomal BMI range and but can still have metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes or even type 2 diabetes , and other diseases associated with weight such as cholesterol abnormalities. This is especially true if you have weight in the wrong areas such as the belly and upper part of the body.

BMI for Obesitycdc-obesity-stats

BMI is used because of the simplicity and for most people, it tends to correlate with their amount of body fat.

•An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight.
•An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
See the following table for an example.

Body body percentage is more important!

It is important to remember that although BMI correlates with the amount of body fat, BMI does not directly measure body fat. As a result, some people, such as athletes, may have a BMI that identifies them as overweight even though they do not have excess body fat.

Waist to hip ratio

Other methods of estimating body fat and body fat distribution include measurements of body composition analysis, skinfold thickness and waist circumference, calculation of waist-to-hip circumference ratios, and techniques such as ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The ideal waist to hip ratio for women should be 0.8 or lower and for men should be 1 or lower. That means, you should not have a big tummy or upper body weight for reducing the metabolic risks associated with weight.

How does your medical weight loss program differ from weight watchers or jenny craig?

How does your medical weight loss program differ from

weight watchers or jenny craig’s weight loss program?

While this question is asking how does a barber differ from a surgeon, we do want to contrast the two types of programs so you can decide for yourself which is better for you.

Medical Grade Weight Loss Can Be

Cheaper Than Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers!

According to this report on ABC news, the cost of weight loss via Jenny Craig is estimated to be $237.56 per pound of weight lost. So, if you have just about 30 pounds to lose, you might end up spending, $7126.8 with a Jenny Craig program. On the other hand – since W8MD Medical Weight Loss Program accepts your health insurance for the physician visits with no significant direct cost to you other than copays, or co-insurance, you can end up saving significant amount. On top of it, you can be assured that you are under the care of a trained medical professional with thorough understanding of all the factors including metabolic, nutritional, hormonal, medications, sleep, genetic, stress and be able to address all of these factors to the best way possible.

Accepting Health Insurance Makes It Cheaper

If the physician medical weight loss program is willing to work with your insurance, that is by far the best, cheapest, and fastest way to lose weight without surgeries and can be potential cheaper than programs like even Jenny Craig’s.

Weight Loss Physicians Can Prescribe, Jenny Craig Or Weight Watchers Cann’t!

Also note that Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers cannot prescribe weight loss medications, order blood work to determine any medical causes for your weight gain such as insulin resistance, hormonal factors, nutritional deficiencies, etc. Since they are non-medical, they cannot correct any of the above factors contributing to your weight gain! And on top of it, they can be far more expensive per pound of weight lost compared to an insurance physician weight loss program that is safe, fast, effective and even much cheaper!
