Proper nutrition is one of the most pressing health awareness issues for families today, and with good reason. In 2016 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that the prevalence of obesity was almost forty percent for adults and just under twenty percent among children and adolescents. In addition to experiencing obesity, these individuals could also be at risk for related conditions such as stroke, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
For those who are obese, the journey back to healthy often begins with the first step of nutrition. Fortunately, research shows that individually tailored and trackable diet and wellness plans may be the best solution for keeping patients focused in attaining long term weight loss. The challenge for patients can come in the form of knowing where to get sage nutritional guidance.
Regrettably, doctors’ offices are becoming increasingly overwhelmed, making appointments hard to come by and leading many patients to seek nutritional guidance elsewhere. Although it can be overlooked, patients should consider urgent care for their nutritional needs.
