Weight Loss Q & A

Why is it so hard to lose weight?

Weight loss can be challenging for everyone, especially since it’s hard to know what to eat or how much to exercise. Dr. Emmer takes into account all of the factors that contribute to your weight loss, including your age, health history, and previous experience with weight loss in order to identify strategies to help you reach your goals.

How can my doctor help me lose weight?

Dr. Emmer focuses on realistic changes to diet and exercise that make weight loss possible in a safe, long-lasting way. For more than 40 years, Dr. Emmer has helped men and women with weight loss so that you can avoid the pitfalls of crash dieting, fad diets, and over-exercising. His suggestions are always based on the best available research along with decades of experience.

Dr. Emmer also understands how life changes and health challenges can make weight loss difficult. If this is the case for you, he evaluates your health and medical condition in order to determine how many calories you should eat so you lose weight at a reasonable pace, and safe exercises you can try to speed up your weight loss.

What is the best way to lose weight?

The best way to lose weight is through diet and exercise. Using your height, weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist circumference, Dr. Emmer calculates your daily caloric needs. He then educates you on ways to meet your calorie needs while incorporating healthy, nutrient-dense foods and safe, gentle exercise.

Dr. Emmer understands that weight loss can be difficult when you need to retrain yourself on eating habits or cooking style, so he offers reliable and effective solutions that you can adopt gradually as you’re ready.

How can I lose weight if I have a chronic medical condition?

Certain long-term medical conditions, including diabetes, menopause, and thyroid conditions, can make it even harder for you to lose weight. In these cases, Dr. Emmer works with you to manage your medical condition and identify safe strategies you can use to lose weight without harming your health or well-being.

Through his experience, medical care and weight loss can dramatically improve your overall health and may positively impact your chronic health condition, as well.
