OBESITY: MORE THAN JUST A FEW EXTRA POUNDS
Sure, extra weight is annoying, even embarrassing. But it’s what that extra weight is doing to your body that is the real long-term problem.
Let’s face it, obesity is not something that most of us can overcome on our own. Eating less and exercising more isn’t enough. Obesity is a complex disease of multiple interlocking aspects which inevitably causes more health issues.
That’s why you need an obesity medicine clinician, they treat obesity using a comprehensive approach.
