Lakeland Health Care

Weight Loss Center


If you are struggling with being overweight, you are not alone. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 64% of adults in the United States (about 127

million) are overweight or obese. If you've made it this far, you know that being overweight is not a character defect or due to lack of will power. You're probably wishing for or imagining a life where your weight is in control and you are in charge of what you do, where you go and how you feel.

We've learned that shedding unhealthy weight can make people feel better not only physically but about themselves emotionally. They experience an added energy that keeps the momentum going for their continued commitment to weight maintenance. They "start over," sometimes finding a whole new life for themselves in the process.

The Lakeland Comprehensive Weight Loss Center was created to help people like you learn healthy approaches to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight for years to come. Obesity is a treatable medical condition.


How You Can Benefit From Lakeland's Program
Many factors play a role in obesity-cultural, genetic, psychosocial, metabolic and psychological. Our team works with you to assess your individual circumstances, then creates a customized plan, with you, to work toward your goal. Some of our program's solutions include:

  • Medical weight loss management
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Individualized exercise plans (that change as you do)
  • Psychological support groups

If you are more than 40% overweight, you are twice as likely to die prematurely as someone who is of average weight. Losing as little as five to 15% of your initial body weight can reduce your risk of diabetes and other illnesses. It can even eliminate your need for some medications.
