Obesity Q & A

Why should I be concerned with obesity?

Obesity is common, affecting more than 40% of Americans. Obesity doesn’t have one cause. It results from a unique combination of factors, including genetics, lifestyle habits, underlying conditions, hormonal imbalances, or psychological issues. 


If you have a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher, you’re considered obese. 

Obesity greatly increases your risk of developing disease and suffering a poor quality of life. With weight loss, you can achieve:

  • More energy
  • Less body fat
  • Better muscle definition and improved contours
  • Low risk of chronic disease
  • Self-confidence

With the obesity therapies offered at Peninsula Integrative Cardiology, you lose weight to look and feel your best, improve your health, and increase your life expectancy. 

Is obesity therapy right for me?

If you’re obese, seeking support to lose weight can only help you improve your health and wellbeing. Dr. Rieders customizes a plan that considers your lifestyle, preferences, current health, medications, and psychological struggles.

He uses his medical training to recommend blood tests, urine tests, heart-function testing, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out nutrient deficiencies and other medical problems. 

As a mind, body, and eating coach, Dr. Rieders offers diet and exercise guidelines and psychological support for your weight-loss journey. He’s uniquely positioned to help you overcome plateaus and work through motivation challenges. You’ll benefit from the support and accountability he can provide.
