Anwar, MD, FACP, offers personalized weight loss help you need to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Book online or by phone now.

How do I know how many calories I should eat to lose weight?
In a way, it’s simple: you need to burn more calories when you eat more food. Otherwise, those calories are stored as fat. That’s how you develop those unwanted fat deposits like a muffin top. But, your specific caloric recommendations go beyond a basic formula. The exact kind of calories you eat also plays a role in your weight. Protein calories are better than fat calories.

There are also a number of other factors specific to you that could impact the number of calories you need to eat for successful weight loss. Dr. Anwar performs a full evaluation to determine exactly how many calories you should eat to lose weight.

Why do I need to eat more protein?

Eating protein calories, such as lean chicken, can make you feel satisfied faster, and this may lead to eating less overall. But, if you eat the same amount of calories in the form of processed carbohydrates, you won’t feel full for longer and will likely eat more than you intended.

Also, it takes more energy to digest protein than carbs. That means your body works harder, even when you’re at rest. The end result is that you burn more calories when you eat a high protein diet.

Can chronic disease prevent weight loss?

Yes, but it doesn’t have to. Many patients who have struggled to lose weight later find out that they’re suffering from a chronic disease that slows down their metabolism. A number of chronic diseases are tied to your hormones in some way, and your hormones can have a major impact on your weight.

But, if you suffer from a condition like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid dysfunction, Dr. Anwar can tailor a weight loss plan for you. Your weight loss plan might include bioidentical hormone replacement and lifestyle changes to help you achieve lasting success in spite of the chronic disease.

How does the weight loss program work?
Dr. Anwar recommends keeping a food journal and visiting the Carolina Weight Loss & Personalized Health office regularly for support as you work through the medical weight loss program. You’ll get all the customized dietary recommendations you need to lose the extra weight. Of course, Dr. Anwar monitors your health and wellness each step of the way.
