Diet, weight loss or just plain healthy?
In 2015, 58% of women and 68% of men in the UK were overweight or obese.
It seems that everyone you speak to is on a health kick of some sort, and being healthy is often top of the agenda for many. So, what is the best diet or health plan you've followed? Many of our conversations are geared around health and well-being but it's a personal subject and not everybody is willing to give details about their activity levels or discuss their weight. As health and life insurance brokers, we feel it is in our interest to help keep our clients healthy. It promotes a balanced lifestyle, keeps premiums down and now with the implementation of modern technology such as fitbits etc., you can really keep track of how you are doing.
The question for many clients is "How do I start"? Some clients feel that they have already reached the point of no return and struggle to begin their weight loss or health plan. Some clients have previously been down the invasive surgery route, or tried many different branded or fad diets which just simply haven't worked. However, now there's another option available, one that is medically assessed and run. Our partners CMC have developed a Weight Loss Management Plan (as detailed below).
Obese patients are at an increased risk for developing many medical problems, called comorbidities including:
- Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus
- cardiovacular disease
- sleep apnea
- gallbladder disease
- hyperuricemia and gout
They have developed a weight loss management plan to help you reduce your BMI and your risk of developing weight-associated medical problems.
We understand that a sustainable weight loss is a combination of excellent medical support possibly with medication and psychological support.
The GP lead plan is run over a 6 month period with regular check-ups every two weeks to ensure you are achieving your goals.
CMC have a great team of GP's, HCA's, dieticians and psychologists to help you on your journey to a healthier and longer life.
So, if you've already tried everything, want great advice that is medically assessed and want to follow a plan that works for you, please contact CMC directly to find out more. Furthermore, if you mention that you found out about it through Proactive Insurance or if you are an existing client you will receive a £100 discount for October.
