What Is Obesity?
Obesity is an excessive or abnormal accumulation of fatty tissue that often compromises health. It is attributed to an imbalance in caloric intake and use of energy. Genetics is considered a contributing factor, alongside reduced physical activity, metabolism, sleep issues, and eating habits.
In the U.S., it is estimated that about one-third of adults and about 17 percent of adolescents are obese. One out of five adolescents, one out of six elementary school-age children, and one out of 12 preschoolers are obese. This condition is associated with a number of dangerous health conditions including diabetes, sleep apnea, and cancer.
How Mental Health Can Affect Your Weight
When it comes to answering the questions, "How did I become overweight?" and "How do I achieve weight loss in a healthy and sustainable way?" the answer is rarely simple. The truth is that there are many causes of obesity, and finding the right means of helping you lose weight can require addressing those specific causes.
For example, abnormal sleep patterns, alcohol abuse, and depression can all contribute to obesity. Stress can also play a role. Meanwhile, patients should understand that weight loss achieved through bariatric surgery can actually have a detrimental psychological impact without the proper counseling.

An Holistic Approach to an Issue That Affects Billions Worldwide
The World Health Organization reports that about 1.9 billion adults worldwide are overweight and 650 million are obese. Many of these men and women are heeding the warnings and beginning to take action through a variety of treatments, but often find that losing weight can be incredibly difficult.
When used along with an exercise routine and improved nutrition, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment designed to give you the tools you need to make positive changes. Dr. Bober can coordinate a CBT-based approach to help you lose weight and begin a new phase of improved physical and mental health in your life. This can include the use of prescription medication, depending on your needs.
