The Truth About Weight Control

Q. I know I'm overweight, but what exactly is obesity and how can I determine how bad my problem is?

A. The National Institutes of Health have established four categories of increasing health risk based on the Body Mass Index (BMI) formula as follows:

  • Normal (18~24)

  • Overweight (25~29)

  • Obese (30~35)

  • Morbid Obesity (>35)

To determine your BMI, take your weight (pounds), divided by your height (inches), divide again by your height, and multiply the result by 703.

Obesity is a serious medical disease with high incidence of associated diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol, heart disease and premature aging. 64% of US adults are either overweight (33%) or obese (3I %) representing a health crisis of epidemic proportions with 280,000 related deaths per year.

Q. Is my metabolism slow? I followed my doctor's 1000 calorie diet strictly, but I only lost five pounds in two months!

A. In my office I determine every patient's energy and metabolism using state-of-the-art calorimetry testing.

75% of the patient's tested have
normal to fast metabolic rates because their muscles work harder to carry the excess body fat.

Most overweight people lose some initial weight
on strict low calorie diets, but their bodies soon adapt to what is perceived as starvation by slowing their metabolism and preventing further weight loss.

Fortunately, reliance upon balanced calorie counting diets is giving way to more effective approaches based on new scientific discoveries about food and metabolism.

Q. How do I choose the best diet with so many diets available?

A. Caveat Emptor let the buyer beware!
Marketers of fad diets and commercial nutrition products are highly skilled at mixing fact with
fiction. You should not believe them.

Accept your weight problem for what it truly is:

A serious medical condition that will require a dedicated commitment of time and effort between you and an expert such as Dr. Kane.
