Obesity is a complex disease caused by many factors. Our team is ready to help you through every step of your wellness journey. It is not simply the result of “lack of willpower”, but rather a combination of cultural, environmental, genetic, and individual factors:

Genetics

People with an obese parent are much more likely to be obese than those with lean parents. 

Friends & Family

The eating habits and physical activity levels of the people around you have a significant influence on your health behaviors.

Medical Conditions

Some medical conditions and medications can lead to weight gain. 

Emotions

Distressing events, major life changes, stress, or boredom can lead to food intake even when you are not physically hungry.

Lifestyle

Increased portion sizes and readily available “junk” food can lead to unhealthy eating habits. Busy schedules and modern conveniences such as cars and elevators make exercise difficult to fit into your daily routine.
