People living with the disease of Obesity,
face a constant struggle
to control their weight in a weight bias world.
Here are some essential truths.
You are NOT responsible for your condition. Calories in/Calories out is A HURTFUL AND INCORRECT Belief. YOU ARE NOT A MACHINE; you are a living, breathing, complex organism.
Obesity is a medical condition caused by biological, environmental, and psychological forces, not personal behaviors. It is a complex multifactorial group of diseases, with your body’s weight level under hormonal and neurohormonal control.
Dr. Cindi Larimer, M.D. utilizes time-proven medical therapies and private patient interviews to learn about each patient’s background history, prior results, barriers, and other needs. At GMOS clinic, we strive to listen carefully, be empathetic, and work with each person to maximize their success.
The Four Cornerstones of Weight Loss
- NUTRITION: (food intake) Teaching you nutritional guidelines to maximize body fat loss (we do not want you losing muscle).
- METABOLIC: (medications) Using medications that improve your weight reduction success. Willpower is a limited resource! Cravings, excessive hunger, never feeling full, and emotional eating is some factors that anti-obesity medications can help control or minimize.
- BEHAVIORS: Many behaviors are critical to maximizing your weight loss and keeping a healthy weight. These include adequate sleep, monitoring food intake, exercise (physical activity), meal planning, and meal preparation.
- PSYCHOLOGY: Addressing your psychological needs that disrupt weight loss and produce weight regain. Then, with medication or therapy, focus on improving these patterns/needs/problems.
All medical procedures and interviews are with Dr. Cindi Larimer, MD, Board Certified in Obesity Medicine.
