Are you struggling with weight gain or resistant weight loss? You are not alone! It is estimated that up to 70% of Canadians are overweight or obese. A 2004 study called the Canadian Community Health Survey found that 29% of Canadians 18 years of age or older were obese and 41% more were overweight.
Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Although I agree that thin does not mean healthy, the impact of unwanted weight is profound both physically and mentally. Physically, excess weight puts strain on our joints and can contribute to arthritis, and it can put strain on the circulatory system resulting in high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart disease.
Meeting you where you’re at
There is no one size fits all approach to weight loss. What works for one person may not work for another, and an approach that is life-changing for your friend may not jive with your own wants and needs.
I am ready to meet you where you’re at whether that means implementing a very structured program such as Metabolic Balance® or the Rapid Weight Loss Program or providing dietary and lifestyle recommendations to promote healthier living in general. No matter what route you decide on, my job is to investigate any potential barriers to weight loss to make all your hard work pay off!
Please note that our weight loss programs are only offered by Dr. Nicole Hartman.
