Healthwatch-md.com is dedicated to helping people find the most practical, real-life solutions for achieving and maintaining healthy weight. With the statistics on obesity in the US rising each year, and the cost of health care skyrocketing, it’s more important than ever to find better ways to control weight and improve health.
Research shows that losing just 5% of your body weight (just 12 pounds if you weigh 240 lbs) has a tremendously beneficial effect on your health. For those with diabetes, this small amount of weight loss can help prevent, delay and in some cases, completely reverse the disease process. The benefits of healthy weight have long been known when it comes to heart disease. Obesity is an indicator of long term disability and extended work absence.
There is no single answer to this problem, but we’d like to help.
We understand there is often no straight path to success with long term weight loss, and we at HealthWatch-MD strive to bring you the most current thinking, the best techniques, the most helpful tips and the latest research on what’s happening in the field of weight loss.
We will bring you the latest published scientific research in medicine in an effort to keep you informed of all there is that’s relevant to your quest, and provide you both sides of the story on the newest fad diets or the most controversial health topics as they become available.
