Obesity is one of, if not the most, important health problem facing our society today. The number of health problems related to obesity is staggering. One of the hardest things to do is to lose weight. The BMI is used to measure the level of obesity. A BMI from 25.0 to 25.9 is considered overweight (calculate your BMI here). A BMI greater that 30.0 is considered to be obese. By the time a person has a BMI greater than 30.0, it means that the person needs to lose 30-50 pounds to be considered normal weight. With dedicated diet and exercise, weight loss is possible for anyone. Although, methods that consist of diet, exercise and even the use of medications have proven for many people to be seemingly impossible to achieve. The Doctors at Premier Family Medical recognize these problems and now offer ORBERA™ managed 12 month weight loss system.
