3 things wrong with our diet

We are not adapted to eating a grain based diet

Agriculture is a relatively recent development having been in existence for only about 10,000 years considered small in evolutionary perspective. As a result, humans have not fully adapted to eating a diet rich in grain based carbohydrate rich foods leading to

Insulin Resistance which affects over two thirds of all adults. This increases unhealthy belly fat leading to increased inflammation.

Lack of Antioxidants

Before the modern food processing era, our diet used to have more than 50 percent unprocessed and uncooked food items such as coloured fruits, vegetables, and other natural ingredients that are high in antioxidants such as polyphenols leading to increased inflammation.

Omega 3 to Omega 6 Ratio

The third thing that leads to increased inflammation is the ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids used to be 1:1 but is now at 1:16 which also increases inflammation. Remember, inflammation is the root cause of most human diseases.

www weight loss

The way people search on the internet is interesting – one of the common keywords for weight loss is www weight loss. Let us review what really helps with weight loss in this W8MD article. Obesity is a common and serious health problem affecting up to 39% of the adult population of the united states. Here are some questions and answers related to weight loss.

Weight loss success stories

Weight loss success stories

  • How do I know if I am overweight or obese?

The simplest way to know if you are weight or obese is to try one of the free online Body Mass Index Calculators.

  • Underweight: BMI is less than 18.5.
  • Normal weight: BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.
  • Overweight: BMI is 25 to 29.9.
  • Obese: BMI is 30 or more.
  • How does my weight affect my health? 

  • Obesity affects over 50 different medical conditions including
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides (Dyslipidemia)
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis (a breakdown of cartilage and bone within a joint)
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver)
  • Low quality of life
  • Mental illness such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning.
  • How can I find out if I am at increased health risk related to the distribution of weight?

Not all people that are overweight or obese are at the same health risk – some are considered being at higher risk compared to others based on the distribution of their body fat and weight.

Waist circumference (WC) is an indicator of health risk associated with excess fat around the waist. A waist circumference of 102 centimetres (40 inches) or more in men, or 88 centimetres (35 inches) or more in women, is associated with health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

  • Can obesity increase risk of developing cancer?

Yes. Many types of cancers especially those of gastrointestinal and genitourinary cancer risk is increased with obesity.

There is evidence to show that higher amounts of body fat are associated with increased risks of a number of cancers, including:

  • Endometrial cancer: Obese and overweight women are two to about four times as likely as normal-weight women to develop endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus), and extremely obese women are about seven times as likely to develop the more common of the two main types of this cancer.
  • Esophageal adenocarcinoma: People who are overweight or obese are about twice as likely as normal-weight people to develop a type of esophageal cancer called esophageal adenocarcinoma, and people who are extremely obese are more than four times as likely
  • Gastric cardia cancer: People who are obese are nearly twice as likely as normal-weight people to develop cancer in the upper part of the stomach, that is, the part that is closest to the esophagus
  • Liver cancer: People who are overweight or obese are up to twice as likely as normal-weight people to develop liver cancer. The association between overweight/obesity and liver cancer is stronger in men than women.
  • Kidney cancer: People who are overweight or obese are nearly twice as likely as normal-weight people to develop renal cell cancer, the most common form of kidney cancer. The association of renal cell cancer with obesity is independent of its association with high blood pressure, a known risk factor for kidney cancer.
  • Multiple myeloma: Compared with normal-weight individuals, overweight and obese individuals have a slight (10% to 20%) increase in the risk of developing multiple myeloma.
  • Meningioma: The risk of this slow-growing brain tumor that arises in the membranes surrounding the brain and the spinal cord is increased by about 50% in people who are obese and about 20% in people who are overweight.
  • Pancreatic cancer: People who are overweight or obese are about 1.5 times as likely to develop pancreatic cancer as normal-weight people.
  • Colorectal cancer: People who are obese are slightly (about 30%) more likely to develop colorectal cancer than normal-weight people.A higher BMI is associated with increased risks of colon and rectal cancers in both men and in women, but the increases are higher in men than in women.
  • Gallbladder cancer: Compared with normal-weight people, people who are overweight have a slight (about 20%) increase in risk of gallbladder cancer, and people who are obese have a 60% increase in risk of gallbladder cancer. The risk increase is greater in women than men.
  • Breast cancer: Many studies have shown that, in postmenopausal women, a higher BMI is associated with a modest increase in risk of breast cancer. For example, a 5-unit increase in BMI is associated with a 12% increase in risk. Among postmenopausal women, those who are obese have a 20% to 40% increase in risk of developing breast cancer compared with normal-weight women. The higher risks are seen mainly in women who have never used menopausal hormone therapy and for tumors that express hormone receptors. Obesity is also a risk factor for breast cancer in men.In premenopausal women, by contrast, overweight and obesity have been found to be associated with a 20% decreased risk of breast tumors that express hormone receptors.
  • Ovarian cancer: Higher BMI is associated with a slight increase in the risk of ovarian cancer, particularly in women who have never used menopausal hormone therapy. For example, a 5-unit increase in BMI is associated with a 10% increase in risk among women who have never used menopausal hormone therapy.
  • Thyroid cancer: Higher BMI (specifically, a 5-unit increase in BMI) is associated with a slight (10%) increase in the risk of thyroid cancer.
  • Do I have a health problem that is causing me to be overweight?

Some medical problems can contribute to weight gain such as insulin resistance, hypothyroidism, certain medications, especially psychiatric medications etc can increase your chances of being overweight o obese.

  • What is insulin resistance?

Insulin resistance is when cells in your muscles, fat, and liver don’t respond well to insulin and can’t easily take up glucose from your blood. As a result, your pancreas makes more insulin to help glucose enter your cells. As long as your pancreas can make enough insulin to overcome your cells’ weak response to insulin, your blood glucose levels will stay in the healthy range.

What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes means your blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes usually occurs in people who already have some insulin resistance or whose beta cells in the pancreas aren’t making enough insulin to keep blood glucose in the normal range. Without enough insulin, extra glucose stays in your bloodstream rather than entering your cells. Over time, you could develop type 2 diabetes.

How common is prediabetes?

More than 84 million people ages 18 and older have prediabetes in the United States. That’s about 1 out of every 3 adults.

  • How can I find out if I am insulin resistant?

You can use the free insulin resistance calculator from W8MD – just answer a few simple questions and find out if you have insulin resistance.

  • How will losing weight help me?

Benefits of moderate weight loss in people with obesity
  • People with obesity who reduced their weight by 5% had improvements in metabolic function in many tissues, including fat, liver, and muscle.
  • Further weight loss of 10 to 15% resulted in some additional improvements.

See benefits of weight loss. 

  • What is a healthy weight for me?

A body mass index of between 18-24.99 is considered within normal limits. The key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn’t about short-term dietary changes. It’s about a lifestyle that includes healthy eating, regular physical activity.

  • How much weight do I need to lose?

Check the BMI using the free BMI calculator and find out how much weight you might need to lose.

  • How long should it take me to lose weight?

An average weight loss of about 2-3 pounds per week is reasonable although even slower rate of weight loss of 1-2 lbs a week is still very reasonable.

  • What are healthy ways to lose weight and keep it off?

The healthiest way to lose weight is a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity.

  • How can I change my eating habits?

Work with a trained professional such as an obesity medicine physician or nutritionist to help you with this.

  • What kinds of physical activity do I need to do?

Recommend about 30-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity although it depends on your physical condition. Talk to your doctor about this.

  • Are there any kinds of physical activity I need to avoid because of my health conditions?

It depends but try to do more cardio instead of weight lifting. Talk to your doctor about it.

  • How can W8MD’s insurance weight loss program help?

If you are overweight or obese, have tried many fad diets and need the help of a trained and experienced weight loss physician, you may want to consider W8MD – we specialize in physician supervised, non surgical weight loss with FDA approved treatments.

Medical weight loss

Losing weight is one of the top priorities for many especially during the New Year’s resolutions time. As the United States and the world fight an epidemic of overweight, obesity, and diabetes, some call diabesity, it is important to examine what truly causes weight gain.

What is medical weight loss and how can it help me?

Medical weight loss, as opposed to surgical weight loss, involves non-surgical measures to help you reach your weight gains and to maintain it.

Before we look at the causes of weight gain and strategies to lose weight, let us look at some of the common things people search the internet. Here are some of the commonly searched questions on Google.

  • How do I help lose weight?
  • How can a woman lose weight fast?
  • How can I lose weight fast in 3 days?
  • How do you lose 10 pounds in a week?
  • What is an unhealthy rate of weight loss?
  • What is the best exercise for losing weight?
  • How much weight loss per week is healthy?
  • What are 3 weight management strategies?

How common is overweight and obesity in the US?

First, let us look at obesity rate among adults in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), obesity is common, serious, and costly.

What percent of US adults are obese?

The prevalence of obesity was 39.8% and affected about 93.3 million of US adults in 2015~2016, according to the CDC.

What medical conditions are linked to being overweight or obese?

Over 50 different medical conditions are related to being overweight or obese including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer that are some of the leading causes of preventable, premature death.

What is the annual cost of obesity in the United States?

The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the United States was $147 billion in 2008 US dollars; the medical cost for people who have obesity was $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.

What truly causes obesity?

Obesity is a complex problem that has many causes. Let us look at what truly is causing the obesity, and diabetes epidemic. Although most people oversimplify this and say, it is “calories in, calories out” or “energy balance equation”, those oversimplifications rarely solve any problem and in fact can lead to “blame the victim” attitude.

Did the failed food pyramid play a role in causing the obesity and diabetes epidemic?

Over the past several decades, there has been an overemphasis on low fat diets thinking that fatty foods make one fatty and therefore, low fat foods are a solution.

However, low fat food in practicality ended up being high glycemic and high starch leading to a new problem of increased sugar loading leading to over production of a very anabolic hormone called insulin. Overtime of getting over exposed to insulin, people develop what is called insulin resistance which not only leads to compensatory increase in basal insulin levels but also leads to increased hunger, overeating an bigger portions.

What are the contributing factors for obesity?

Obesity results from a combination of causes and contributing factors, including metabolic factors such as insulin resistance, lack of proper sleep, stress, medications, individual factors such as behavior and genetics.

What behavioral factors lead to weight gain?

Behaviors can include dietary patterns, physical activity, inactivity, medication use, and other exposures. Additional contributing factors in our society include the food and physical activity environment, education and skills, and food marketing and promotion.

Do genes have a role in obesity?

Genetic changes in human populations occur too slowly to be responsible for the obesity epidemic. Nevertheless, the variation in how people respond to the environment that promotes physical inactivity and intake of high-calorie foods suggests that genes do play a role in the development of obesity.

How could genes influence obesity?

Genes give the body instructions for responding to changes in its environment. Studies have identified variants in several genes that may contribute to obesity by increasing hunger and food intake.

Rarely, a clear pattern of inherited obesity within a family is caused by a specific variant of a single gene (monogenic obesity). Most obesity, however, probably results from complex interactions among multiple genes and environmental factors that remain poorly understood.

What about role of family history in obesity?

Health care practitioners routinely collect family health history to help identify people at high risk of obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and some forms of cancer. Family health history reflects the effects of shared genetics and environment among close relatives. Families can’t change their genes but they can change the family environment to encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity. Those changes can improve the health of family members—and improve the family health history of the next generation.

Can certain medical conditions or medications cause weight gain?

Some illnesses may lead to obesity or weight gain. These may include Cushing’s disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome. Drugs such as steroids and some antidepressants may also cause weight gain. The science continues to emerge on the role of other factors in energy balance and weight gain such as chemical exposures and the role of the microbiome.

A health care provider can help you learn more about your health habits and history in order to tell you whether behaviors, illnesses, medications, and/or psychological factors are contributing to weight gain or making weight loss hard.

What are the health consequences of Obesity?

People who have obesity, compared to those with a normal or healthy weight, are at increased risk for many serious diseases and health conditions, including the following:

  • All-causes of death (mortality)
  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • High LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides (Dyslipidemia)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis (a breakdown of cartilage and bone within a joint)
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver)
  • Low quality of life
  • Mental illness such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning

What are the economic and societal consequences of obesity?

  • Obesity and its associated health problems have a significant economic impact on the U.S. health care system.
  • Medical costs associated with overweight and obesity may involve direct and indirect costs.
  • Direct medical costs may include preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services related to obesity
  • Indirect costs relate to morbidity and mortality costs including productivity.
  • Productivity measures include ‘absenteeism’ (costs due to employees being absent from work for obesity-related health reasons) and ‘presenteeism’ (decreased productivity of employees while at work) as well as premature mortality and disability.

Lost about 100 lbs and maintaining

FANTASTIC program! Truly a life changer! The first several months I lost on average 3 pounds a week. I have now lost 87 pounds in 10 months and I’m still losing! I can say it feels almost effortless, for with the elimination of most carbs plus the medication I have ZERO cravings and minimal hunger.

My cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar have all returned to normal having previously been considerably elevated. I look and feel twenty years younger (I am 57.) Staff is friendly and supportive, and the science works.

I did not think that I would be able to achieve such results, and certainly not in less than a year. I am amazed at my success, and I could not have done it without Dr. Tumpati and W8MD. D. M. *

Update: UPDATE: It is now a year and a half since I began this journey. I have lost 103 pounds, reaching and actually surpassing by a couple of pounds my weight loss goal, and am maintaining. My monthly visits with Dr. Tumpati, as well as the positive reinforcement of his staff, really help to keep me on track. My new eating habits have become my new normal, and I accept that adhering to these guidelines regarding my food needs to be a permanent part of my health routine, just like brushing my teeth.

Living healthy and feeling good about the way I look are such great ways to start and go through my day that I can’t think of anything better. All my positives are enhanced and any negatives don’t seem as bad because at my center I am healthy, vibrant, energetic, and able to attract goodness. Every day is filled with gratitude that I have emerged from this process – dare I say it? Victorious! – D.M.

Biggest loser lost over 150 lbs

I’ve been going to Dr. Tumpati at the King of Prussia location for about 9 months and have lost 150 pounds*.  I was at a point where my weight was affecting my life and health, ignoring it was no longer an option.  I wanted to lose weight safely, but effectively, yet most people said it was impossible.  It was time to hire a professional. Dawn.

Dr. Tumpati and staff have been great explaining every step of the process and making sure I stay on track.  The accountability and constant encouragement have been key parts of my success, as well as the knowledge that I was following a plan that would work and had actual medical science to back it. I am not finished losing yet, but as compared to 9 months ago, I know I’m already healthier, now’s its just finishing the journey.  This path isn’t easy but if you’ve had enough of your weight being an impact on your health and life, considering getting help like Dr. Tumpati and his staff. It will make it easier.
