Become the Healthiest Person You Know With Nutritional Counseling

The United States is grappling with an obesity crisis that’s responsible for one in five deaths and costs the country nearly $150 billion per year.

Obesity is even linked to a host of serious chronic illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.

The communities in and around Panama City Beach are fortunate to have Dr. Gurprit Sekhon at their disposal. She offers nutritional counseling and weight loss services that are customized to each patient’s needs and circumstances. 

Everyone’s journey to health and weight loss is unique, and Dr. Sekhon understands this.

Definition of obese

Being obese is more than just needing to lose a few pounds. You’re considered clinically obese if your weight exceeds a healthy range for your height and build. 

A common tool used to determine whether a person is within a normal weight range is the Body Mass Index (BMI), which measures body fat based on weight and height.

Even though excess weight is the more common problem for most of us, Dr. Sekhon provides nutritional services to different types of patients. Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, or maintain your weight, she can help you become the healthiest version of yourself.

More than a diet, rather a way of life

Have you struggled with a weight problem all your life? Did you recently gain weight or start to feel lethargic? A nutritional imbalance might be the culprit. 

Eating the proper foods and timing your meals and snacks to keep you energized and productive takes knowledge, planning, and commitment. Dr. Sekhon helps you with all three. No matter where you are on the weight continuum, she has an array of tools to help you make smart decisions and maintain the benefits of sound nutrition.

She might offer:

Every Nu Wave Medical Center team member has your back and steps up to provide you with whatever you may need as you employ the new eating strategies and plan Dr. Sekhon creates for you. 

One size doesn’t fit all

We can’t stress enough the importance of a plan that’s tailored to your lifestyle, food preferences, and family situation. Even though calories in and calories expended are simple math, the emotional and logistical components are also vital parts of the equation. 

Dr. Sekhon creates a food plan that's specific to your needs and lifestyle. She also works with you to address the feelings behind your urge to eat, or not eat. 

Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Sekhon separates nutritional facts from fiction. She'll teach you what's best for your body, instead of relying on fad diets. 

Following your plan will help you lose weight, lower your risk for serious health problems, improve your quality of sleep, and boost your self-esteem. 

Don’t wait to improve your health

What you put in your body is what fuels your life, so quality and quantity are equally important. Whether you wish to gain weight, drop pounds, or simply feel better, Dr. Sekhon commits to designing a plan to help you reach your weight and health goals.
