Food and diet are a vital part of your ongoing health. In the United States, it’s estimated that 73.6% of adults aged 20 and older are overweight (including people that are clinically obese). That is almost three-quarters of the American population that is struggling with their weight! Being overweight can lead to many health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, gallbladder disease, high blood pressure, and more. In some instances, being obese can lead to life-threatening situations, such as stroke. Nutrition should be the primary focus for anyone looking to lose weight. Experts estimate that weight loss is 75% diet and 25% exercise. This means that just increasing your activity without making significant changes to your diet won’t garner substantial results.
As a board certified psychiatrist at Lotus Psychiatry & Wellness, I am pleased to offer my patients complete nutritional and dietary services. Patients receive a comprehensive examination and evaluation of their health and then are put on custom exercise plans and meal prep plans. Next, patients continue to come in for consultations to monitor their progress and make any necessary adjustments to their plan. Taking charge of your nutritional and dietary health is an integral part of taking care of your overall self. Losing weight can improve your confidence, your mental health, energy levels, and your physical health.
Even if you’re not struggling with your weight, you can benefit from nutritional and dietary services. Recent research shows that the average American isn’t getting all the nutrients they need from food. An individual at a healthy weight, with a relatively healthy diet, can still unknowingly suffer from critical nutritional deficiencies, such as iron or Vitamin B12. Lotus Psychiatry & Wellness offers minerals and supplements that we make ourselves. All of our supplements are 100% organic, made in the USA, and all-pure ingredients. Contact Lotus Psychiatry & Wellness today for a consultation on how we can help. During your consultation, I’ll review the problems you want to address, make an informed plan of action, and set up check-ins to monitor your progress. Your new life can start today – just book an appointment to take the first step!
