Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important if I’m overweight?

When you’re overweight or obese, you’re at risk of many chronic diseases. Plus, carrying extra pounds can aggravate conditions like arthritis and sleep apnea. 


Losing even a small amount of weight improves major health markers like blood pressure and cholesterol.


Weight loss reduces your risk of developing:


  • Cardiovascular disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Male and female infertility
  • Depression


When you achieve a healthier size, everyday activities, like walking and chores, feel more comfortable. 

What makes medically supported weight loss different?

The team at Syosset Medi Spa helps you with all aspects of weight loss. Support includes diet and exercise counseling and other complementary treatments to support your weight goals.


The team helps you understand the importance of your body composition, too. Your body composition refers to the ratio of fat to lean tissue, such as organs and muscles, on your body. 


The goal at Syosset Medi Spa is to help you achieve a healthy fat loss, while maintaining lean mass. This promotes ultimate health and body tone.

What types of weight loss support are available?


The team at Syosset Medi Spa gives you the tools and education you need to achieve weight loss. You’ll be kept accountable for your goals. 


The dietician team helps you if you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed. You benefit from weekly weigh-ins and consultations where you sit down with a professional who can help you overcome obstacles and experience real results.

Why should weight loss focus on body composition?

When you lose weight, you want to lose fat. When you measure weight loss in terms of pounds or a reduction in your body mass index, you don’t necessarily know the quality of the weight lost. 


Measuring body composition using a specialized scale helps you understand how changes in your weight are reflected in your body. 


For example, suppose you’ve been diligently exercising but don’t see big number changes on the scale. In that case, your body composition analysis may reveal a decrease in fat levels and increase in lean mass. This means your work is paying off and you’re achieving a more toned and firm body.
