How Do I Know if I’m Overweight or Obese?
Being overweight or obese is a health epidemic plaguing the nation. More than 37% of adults in the United States are obese, and over 70% are overweight.
If your body mass index (BMI) is over 30, you meet the criteria for a diagnosis of clinical obesity, and if it’s between 25 and 29.9, you’re officially overweight. You can calculate your BMI by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in meters squared, or you can google a BMI calculator.
Medical Weight Loss Reviews
"Dr. Tumbaga and her nurse Jennifer are fantastic! Came here for Botox, and what really impressed me was that it was all a collaborative effort. We discussed what outcome I wanted, and I got input from both about how to go about getting the desired outcome. They answered the million questions I had, and the procedure went smoothly. I went back and had Kybella done, for the dreaded double chin. Weight loss and facial exercises can only do so much! I will probably need 1-2 more treatments; am excited about seeing the before and after pics once my treatments are completed. I’ve already noticed a decrease in the area under the chin. Planning to come back for the PRP facial and laser skin resurfacing. What I appreciate most about this particular clinic is Dr. Tumbaga’s genuine desire to help people achieve their goals. She’s honest and cares about her patients; this is obvious in the way she personally texts every one of her patients to follow up after a treatment. Her warmth and genuineness is what sets her apart from others in this field, as well as her expertise in beautifying people �."- P.R. / Facebook / Jun 02, 2018
