loss refers to the loss of total body mass in an
effort to improve fitness, health, and/or
Therapeutic weight loss, in individuals who are
overweight or obese, can decrease the likelihood of
developing diseases such as diabetes, heart
disease, high blood pressure, stroke,
osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer.
Weight loss occurs when an individual is in a state
of negative energy balance. When the human body is
spending more energy in work and heat than it is
gaining from food or other nutritional supplements,
it will use stored reserves of fat or muscle.
Although weight loss may involve loss of fat, muscle
or fluid, weight loss for the purposes of
maintaining health should aim to lose fat while
conserving muscle and fluid.
It is not uncommon for people who are already at a
medically healthy weight to intentionally lose
weight. In some cases it is with the goal of
improving athletic performance or to meet weight
classifications in a sport. In other cases, the goal
is to attain a more attractively shaped body. Being
underweight is associated with health risks such as
difficulty fighting off infection, osteoporosis,
decreased muscle strength, trouble regulating body
temperature and even increased risk of death.
At the Harley anti-aging Institute our lifestyle management program involves a holistic approach including dietary changes, natural supplements and exercise. Our program targets stored body fat as opposed to traditional diet that causes loss of generalized body fat and muscle. This results in targeting hard to manage areas such as the abdomen, flank and thighs.
