Physician Seminar: Weight Loss Goals

Being overweight often leads to an array of health problems that impact both an individual’s quality of life, as well as their life expectancy. In fact, it is estimated that at any given time, two-thirds of American adults are on a diet to either lose weight or prevent weight gain. However, statistically only five percent of these dieters will be successful in keeping the weight off.

The reasons for failure are varied. Sustainable weight loss is extremely difficult to achieve and it can be especially challenging if one is going at it alone or test driving one of the latest fads or weight loss options. If you have tried to achieve significant weight loss and been unsuccessful, do not give up, your health is too important. Remember that weight loss is more than a diet; it is a process, a life changing process that encompasses more than simply cutting calories.

Our goal is for you to reach long-term success by providing the available tools necessary to achieve your goal. If you or a loved one is struggling with weight loss or if you are interested in learning about medical options, this is a seminar you don’t want to miss. Walter Medlin, MD will talk about typical hurdles and struggles patients face, treatment options, realistic long-term and short-term goals, health benefits of weight loss and some of our many success stories.

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 in the Portneuf Medical Center Pebble Creek Conference Room. The seminar, “Weight Loss Goals: Keeping your New Year’s Resolutions, is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6 p.m.; presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is preferred; please call 208-239-2033 to reserve a seat or register for this community seminar at Portneuf.org/event.
