About Obesity Treatment
Obesity is a medical condition that is caused due to excess body fat and it has an adverse effect on human health. Obesity increases the chances of getting various diseases like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancer.
Food is a very important part of human life. There is a saying, “Eat to live and not live to eat”. People who believe in “Live to eat” become victims of obesity or weight gain. Obesity has almost doubled in the last couple of years. Almost 56 million children are obese at the turn of 2012. Obesity or weight gain refers to the excessive/abnormal fat accumulated in the body which can affect the day-to-day lifestyle and dramatically affect one’s health in the long run. The main reason why excessive fat gets accumulated is because of the intake of food with high energy content like oil, cheese, butter, and high carbohydrates.
You should limit intake of processed and refined fats and sugars, increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and nuts, and engage in regular physical activity to achieve energy balance and a healthy weight.”
Obesity needs to be taken care of at the initial stages because it becomes difficult at later stages. Obesity or overweight is a sign or risk factor for many other diseases. A person can be overweight from extra muscle, bone, water, or having too much fat.

"Atlanta Medical Institute gave me back myself! I have been trying for a long time to kick my weight loss into gear but the weight kept climbing. I have PCOS which includes hormonal and metabolic issues that make weight loss very difficult. Dr. Semel is familiar with PCOS and was able to guide me with supplements and support during the weight loss program. Fadi Malouf coached me every step with tips, troubleshooting and encouragement. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. I have lost 32 pounds in three months so far and I'm still going!"- J.W. / Facebook / Nov 24, 2019
