Weight loss can be challenging because most weight-loss plans focus on calories, encouraging you to eat fewer calories than you burn. Yes, eating less and moving more are important parts of any weight-loss plan, but weight loss may not be as simple as changing your calorie equation.
Dr. Modad is an expert in weight loss and nutrition. She understands how the body absorbs nutrients, stores fat, and loses fat and she knows that not all calories are equal.
You may absorb more calories eating some foods than others. This is because some foods tell the body to release more insulin, which tells the body to absorb more of the sugar from what you eat. Eating a 100-calorie doughnut, for example, may cause more weight gain than a 100-calorie orange.
In addition to calories, weight loss can be difficult because you have a unique physiology and microbiome, which affects how your body responds to certain foods and diets. No single diet works for all. While your friend may lose weight following one type of diet, you might gain weight following the same plan.
You can expect compassionate care during your weight-loss consultation at Palm Coast OB GYN. Dr. Modad takes a holistic approach to health, focusing on your physical, emotional, and social well-being.
She asks detailed questions about your weight history and struggles and your usual diet and exercise habits. Dr. Modad may also reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam.
She may run lab work to confirm or rule out any underlying medical issues that may affect your weight loss success.
Dr. Modad uses many strategies to help you reach your weight goals. One of the most effective strategies she uses is customization. She creates a weight-loss plan that matches your physiology and microbiome so you can lose the weight and keep it off.
Dr. Modad also focuses on critical details rather than glossing over them. Making small changes can lead to dramatic results. Some of the strategies she teaches include:
Providing you with these focused tools and strategies can help you reach your weight goals.
