Introduction to Reducing Obesity
In this Dr. Talk, Dr. Mark Sherwood discusses how to lose weight using a complete wellness program that includes the use of diet, peptides, and exercise. Dr. Sherwood is a naturopathic doctor who, along with his wife, runs a wellness-based practice out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has created a plan that uses peptides, along with exercise and diet, to help patients decrease their body fat percentage.
He chooses to mark progress with body fat percentage instead of weight. This approach factors in body recomposition, which is when body weight remains the same as it adds muscle mass while losing body fat.
The Issues With Obesity Today
Obesity is a rising pandemic and is expected to be the new normal. It is a large contributor to many diseases. This includes heart disease, which remains the number one killer of men and women across the U.S.
Two main causes of obesity in the U.S. are low-quality diets and sedentary lifestyles. Many of our foods are mass-produced using harmful chemicals, preservatives, and complex carbohydrates. Our bodies can’t process these foods and simply store the excess energy as fat. Spending 12 or more hours a day sitting at an office desk and watching TV doesn’t help either. How do we overwrite obesity in our country today?
Dr. Mark Sherwood’s Strategy to Treating Obesity
- Take peptides as prescribed.
- Have a consistent exercise schedule and move more in daily life.
- Follow a diet that includes fasting, preferably an 18-hour fast, two or three times a week.
With Dr. Mark Sherwood’s plan, it is possible to lose 2-3% of body fat every month. With a combination of peptides, exercise, and diet his patients consistently walk away having achieved goals. Dr. Sherwood serves as a naturopathic doctor focused on bettering people’s overall lifestyles.
