What is Obesity Treatment?
Obesity is a medical condition that is caused due to excess body fat, and it has an adverse effect on human health. Obesity increases the chances of getting various diseases like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancer.
Food is a very important part of human life. There is a saying, “Eat to live and not live to eat”. People who believe in “Live to eat” become victims of obesity or weight gain. Obesity has almost doubled in the last couple of years. Almost 56 million children are obese at the turn of 2012. Obesity, or weight gain, refers to the excessive/abnormal fat accumulated in the body. This can impact the day-to-day lifestyle and dramatically affect one’s health in the long run. The main reason why excessive fat gets accumulated is because of the intake of food with high energy content like oil, cheese, butter, and high carbohydrates. You should limit intake of processed and refined fats and sugars, increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and nuts, as well as engage in regular physical activity to achieve energy balance and a healthy weight. Obesity needs to be taken care of at the initial stages because it becomes difficult to manage the longer it progresses. In addition, this condition leads to an increased risk for many other diseases. A person can be overweight from extra muscle, bone, water, or having too much fat. We invite patients in Atlanta, GA, to contact Atlanta Medical Institute and schedule a consultation with Dr. Bills or Dr. Semel to learn more.

"Atlanta Medical Institute gave me back myself! I have been trying for a long time to kick my weight loss into gear but the weight kept climbing. I have PCOS which includes hormonal and metabolic issues that make weight loss very difficult. Dr. Semel is familiar with PCOS and was able to guide me with supplements and support during the weight loss program. Fadi Malouf coached me every step with tips, troubleshooting and encouragement. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. I have lost 32 pounds in three months so far and I'm still going!"- J.W. / Facebook / Nov 24, 2019
"I was hoping to lose "the last 10 pounds". I already was eating relatively healthy, hydrating, and exercising regularly. At 6'4", 260 I wanted to get below 250 because I had high cholesterol and a recent diagnosed of non-alcoholic fatty liver. I started the HCG program, and in 10 weeks, I blew past 250, through 240 leveling off at to 235! I dropped a full pant size to a size 36. I haven't been able to get into a 36 since I was in college and that was long ago in the last century. I'm off my cholesterol meds and my liver tests Normal. Today I'm in the best shape since my early 20's. The staff was wonderful, particularly Naomi. I can't take you all enough!"- T.P. / Google / Sep 16, 2019
"Atlanta Medical Institute as been around the longest and it's the most reputable medical wellness clinic in Atlanta. To be honest I was skeptical of medical weight loss centers but found their team of doctors and professionals earnestly concerned about how patients deal with stress, weight issues, neck and back pain, hormones imbalancement and much more. AMI comprehensive testing is exceptionally accurate allowing them to treat their patients with proper treatment. They help patients with creating new eating habits and establishing realistic activities they would enjoy doing to ensure long term results. The founder of this clinic himself is in amazing shape and nearly the entire staff have benefited from the clinics' services. So from first hand, patients are treated with care as if they are family."- F.M. / Google / Sep 16, 2019
