Losing weight and keeping it off is no easy task. It is frustrating when you are doing all the necessary things to get the body that you have always wanted, and not seeing the progress you feel you are making. Diet programs are not always reliable, and what you see on television and in magazines is not always realistic. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who plan to go on a diet, statistics do not seem to be in your favor.
This isn’t breaking news, as doctors know that yo-yo and crash dieting is linked to heart disease, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, inflammation, and, ironically, gaining more weight. Yet, these ineffective treatments are still pushed on you, insisting they will make you not just thinner, but healthier. In reality, 97 percent of dieters regain everything they lost. If only there were programs and routines out there that actually worked!
Poor diet quality is the number one cause of poor health around the world, and the number one risk factor for chronic disease, according to Lancet Global Health. There are many weight loss programs on the market today, but only one is designed to help reduce chronic orthopedic conditions. Through our partnership with Prevenix, Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland is able to offer the Prevenix 3-2-1 program to help enhance the health and wellness of our patients. The results of the program will help reduce pressure on joints – reducing pain, stiffness and improving flexibility.
With the aging population of baby-boomers, the shift towards chronic conditions has accelerated, and we are prepared to offer a healthy and responsible solution to a team approach between Prevenix and your provider to help change the culture of medicine.
