If we have missed a question, please email us at email@example.com or call 804-358-1000. You may also set up an appointment for a free tour and assessment in order to get all your questions answered, on by one, in person. The answers below are those of Zacharias Ganey Management and should NOT replace the medical advice of your physician. In most cases, a physician's clearance is required prior to enrolling in the ZG program. We can provide assistance to help obtain this clearance if necessary.
All my family is overweight. So even if I loose weight, I fear I'll just gain in it back. Is my weight genetic?
Genetics are one factor in our size but its never the whole story. At ZG we will help you understand the science of good nutrition, how to avoid wide variations in your blood sugar, and the importance of exercise in maintaining your health. Families often share the same bad habits and lifestyle which result in familial tendency to weight problems.
I don't have time to work out, so wouldn't it be better for me to have gastric bypass surgery, or try weight loss medications?
Gastric bypass surgery, or any surgery, carries the risk of complications and medications alter your normal physiology. Some people may still require either or both. However, by participating in the ZG Healthy Lifestyle Change and Weight Management Program you will improve your overall health and fitness. There are two advantages. First, in many cases, you may avoid the use of medication or the need for surgery altogether. Secondly, if you do need surgery, you will be better prepared physically and mentally for the challenges of surgery.
