Here's How Your Doctor Can Help Create The Right Diet And Exercise Plan

It seems as though you can’t turn anywhere these days without hearing or reading something about the latest diet craze. From counting carbs to denying carbs, and eating like cavemen to eating only plant-based foods, opinions about diets are everywhere. And yet, with all of these miraculous diet plans, the United States remains one of the most obese nations on the globe.

Diet isn’t the only culprit contributing to our overweight society. A nationwide lack of exercise contributes to the rampant obesity rates in America as well as to the many chronic diseases that could be controlled or eliminated through diet and exercise.

The team at Arlington Family Practice can give you a diet and exercise plan that suits your needs and gives you the best chance to get in shape and stay that way.

Clearing the weight loss confusion

If you’re looking to drop more than a few pounds or are eager to find a way to remain active well into your golden years, diet and exercise are key. Like many Americans, however, you may be confused by all the fad diets and the ever-changing data about what’s healthy and what isn’t. Can you enjoy a piece of fruit or a slice of bread? And just what is the keto diet?

Your doctor is your best source for finding the diet and exercise plan that will work for you. At Arlington Family Practice, we take your health seriously. We understand that a diet and exercise plan will only work if you follow it, and if it’s something that fits into your lifestyle. Losing weight is only part of the equation. You need to keep it off, and for that you’ll need a healthy diet you can live with for the rest of your life.

Everyone is different, and a diet and exercise program is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. So much of diet and exercise is affected by your likes and dislikes and overall health and wellness. By working with the knowledgeable and compassionate physicians at Arlington Family Practice, you’ll get a customized weight loss and fitness plan that’s perfect for you.

Turn to your fitness and diet experts

What better person to work with you to create the best diet and exercise plan than your doctor? With so many proven diet and exercise plans to choose from, you and the physicians at Arlington Family Practice can find the plan that will work for you. With regular monitoring, if your diet becomes unmanageable, or you feel you need a different approach, your doctor will work alongside you to find the best way to continue.

For men and women with chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol, it’s essential that your physician be involved in your weight loss and fitness journey. By dropping just 5% of your weight, you’ll lower your risk for diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and more.

When you begin, certain health conditions may prohibit you from doing specific workouts. By working with your physician, you can find a way to achieve your fitness goals in a healthy and timely manner.

Start your journey to your best life today

When you come in for your consultation, we’ll discuss any health issues you have or those for which you may be at risk. We can determine your ideal weight and judge how much weight you need to lose. We’ll also set realistic goals and schedule a timeline.

Finding the right diet and exercise plan for your optimal wellness is about much more than looking good on the beach. Sure, who doesn’t want to turn a few heads? But real, lifelong good health is worth much more. Achieving your best health involves preventing, reversing, or being able to manage chronic conditions that can impact your future. Being fit can help you retain your mobility for many years to come.
