Obesity and overweight are defined as an abnormal or excessive accumulation of fat that can be detrimental to health.
The root cause of overweight and obesity is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended, which is caused by an increased intake of high-calorie foods that are rich in fat on the one hand and a decrease in physical activity due to the increasingly sedentary nature of our lifestyles on the other.
Obesity and overweight significantly shorten life expectancy and are considered by the World Health
Obesity can be treated or, better still, prevented by adopting healthy lifestyle habits such as limiting energy intake, reducing the intake of fats and sugars, increasing the consumption of fruit and vegetables and regular physical activity.
At Sensemal Clinic we will base our treatment on helping you to change your dietary habits and replace them progressively and definitively with a healthy diet.
During this process we will be helped by the use of safe drugs with proven results.
We have injectable drugs used in slimming processes in people who are overweight and/or obese, which help to reduce appetite and control body weight, and can cause a reduction of up to 10% of total weight, when associated with a healthy diet and the practice of regular physical activity.
The active ingredient of this medicine acts on the regions of the brain that regulate appetite, causing the individual to feel less hungry and, therefore, weight loss occurs by reducing the number of calories consumed throughout the day.
Once treatment has begun, it will be necessary to monitor the most appropriate dose for each patient and the side effects that may arise during treatment, which include nausea, diarrhoea or constipation and heavy digestion, among others.
Getting back to your ideal weight is worthwhile but sometimes it can be difficult to stay motivated and can be a real challenge; we will be there for you:
Set a realistic and healthy weight goal and deadline.
Reinforce your motivation to reach your weight goal.
Improve your control over your eating and establish appetizing, varied and healthy alternatives.
We will help you understand what factors influence your eating style.
Cheer up; together we can do it.
