Weight Loss Q & A

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Though fitting into an old pair of jeans serves as a good motivator for weight loss, most people want to drop those extra pounds to improve their health. 

Losing as little as 5% of your current weight offers many health benefits including:

  • Lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Reduced risk of chronic disease (diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease)
  • Decreased joint pain
  • Improved sleep
  • Boost in self-confidence and self-esteem

Despite the many benefits, many people struggle to lose weight and keep it off. At Why Weight, Dr. Salter provides all the tools and support you need to reach your weight and health goals and stay there.

What can I expect during a weight-loss consultation?

When you visit Why Weight for a weight-loss consultation, you can expect an in-depth clinical evaluation focused on assessing your overall health and metabolism.

During your consultation, Dr. Salter asks detailed questions about your weight history and struggles, as well as the obstacles that prevent you from losing weight or maintaining your weight loss. 

She also conducts a thorough physical exam and comprehensive lab testing to assess:

  • Resting metabolic rate (number of calories your body burns at rest)
  • Hormone levels
  • Food and environmental sensitivities
  • Nutritional deficiencies 
  • Blood lipid levels

Dr. Salter uses the information gathered during your consultation to create your personalized weight-loss program.
