If you would like to lose weight, or you’re having trouble managing a consistent weight, schedule a visit with Dr. Almonte. She’ll help you come up with a weight loss and management program that works for you.

People come in all shapes and sizes, of course. Your natural body type may be large, small, or anywhere in between. So being obese or overweight is not about looking a certain way, but about having a weight that is unhealthy for your body type. Obesity increases the risk of many types of health conditions, including:


  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Stroke

  • Breathing problems

Planning a Weight Loss Program

Fortunately, the two key components of weight loss are the two most basic tenets of good health: a good diet and plenty of exercise. The challenge is coming up with a program that works for you. One tip is to focus on slow and steady progress, maybe 1-2 pounds a week. It’s never advisable to change your body shape drastically over a short period of time. Allow your body to adjust as you gradually shed those pounds.

Other questions to ask yourself and discuss with Dr. Almonte:

  • There are many versions of healthy diets out there. Which one works best for me?

  • What types of exercise do I find most enjoyable? How can I do them more often?

  • How do I stay motivated?

  • Should I try a preexisting program or customize my own?
