Being overweight can not only have an impact on your day-to-day life, but it can also lead to serious health complications.

At Montes Medical Group, we believe in providing our patients with the highest level of care and attention to help them address their medical issues. We welcome you to get in touch with us today to discover some of the ways we can help you address excess fat and manage your lifestyle.


What Causes Obesity?

Living a sedentary lifestyle and practicing poor eating habits can both contribute to obesity. Along with these, environmental factors, socioeconomic status, and genetics can play a significant role in how much weight a person gains. If others in your family struggle with their weight, chances are that you too will have a difficult time managing it. In order to create an effective weight management program, identifying all of the factors contributing to your condition is essential.

How Excess Weight Affects Your Life

One of the biggest challenges faced by those who are overweight is the onset of illness. Obesity can quickly lead to diabetes and cardiovascular issues.
