The ABMH Obesity clinic works at a scientific approach towards obesity management. We believe; eating moderately, combined with appropriate exercise is the best solution for a permanent weight loss. Weight loss necessarily means fat loss. The body composition analyzer helps to detect the different factors which contribute to form total body weight. These components are Skeletal Muscle Mass, Fat Mass, Fat Free Mass, Body water, % Body Fat and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). The objective of the Obesity clinic is to reduce the fat mass, % body fat and improve BMR and skeletal muscle mass. The diet, detoxification and exercise combination is individually designed, as per the body composition analysis of the patient, in order to ensure long term weight loss. The program also gives details of food menu with the low calorie recipes.
