What is medical weight management?
Ensuring proper nutrition does not involve simply avoiding sweets and counting calories. Nor does it involve fad diets for the obese and performance enhancing drugs for the athletically inclined. The The PHInstitute Medical Weight Management program upholds medically-backed principles to achieve your best results.
Our medical weight management program upholds medically-backed principles to address the serious needs of patients suffering from obesity or serious medical conditions influenced by food and nutrition. Our program details the importance of macronutrition, which is obtaining a desirable proportion of carbohydrates, protein, and fats in a calorie conscious fashion, superimposed with micronutrition, which focuses on vital nutrients and essential vitamins.
How does nutrition influence overall health?
Without achieving a true nutritional balance, we create a deficit in our bodies that renders us vulnerable to a number of chronic diseases, as well as an inability to recover from injury, lack of energy and sleep abnormalities.
For starters, what has been shown to be most helpful in creating attainable eating habits and long lasting results is an in depth dietary analysis followed by a structured meal plan suitable to meet one’s needs. We will also provide you with the necessary tools to eliminate poor dietary hygiene and make healthy eating less time or energy consuming.
How can I tell if I am malnourished?
Assessing your own nutritional health is much more challenging than it may appear. It seems obvious that a person who is overweight may look in the mirror and think about the connection between their eating habits and their weight gain. On the other hand, many people have nutritional deficiencies, a lack of daytime energy, poor performance, and many other health problems that are directly connected to their eating habits. However, those who do not also have weight problems seldom recognize that it is related to their nutrition and food intake. It is important to recognize that obesity and malnutrition don’t always coexist.
