How can Omni Wellness Center help me lose weight

At Omni Wellness Center, we believe there are three key components to successful weight loss: (1) the goals of the patient losing weight; (2) the patient’s support system; and (3) the diet plan. What works for one person may not work for another. That’s why our Charlotte chiropractor gets to know each patient personally before developing a custom diet plan. Our plans help patients lose an average of 5 to 7 pounds during the first week, and 2 pounds each following week. By providing ongoing support, nutrition and exercise advice, we help our patients achieve their weight loss goals.

Am I doomed by genetics to battle my weight?

No! While genetics do play a factor in our metabolism, our weight involves a combination of a multitude of different metabolic processes.

Environmental factors, including what we eat and how often we exercise, also make a big difference. When it comes to weight loss, our Charlotte chiropractor recognizes that there is no single ‘one-size-fits-all’ diet plan. With the right weight loss program tailored to be meet your body’s nutritional needs, you can successful lose weight – no matter what your genes say.

Does extra walking help that much with weight control?

If you are not currently physically active, then starting a walking program is a great way to get back into shape and help lose weight. For example, 30 minutes of brisk walking can burn up to 150 calories. The faster you walk, the more calories you will burn. Once you’ve lost the weight, exercise is even more important. Studies show that people who successfully maintain their weight loss do so through a combination of healthy eating habits and regular exercise. Extra walking really can make a difference for not only your weight but your health.
