Certified individual therapeutic counseling
Obesity is a condition that is characterized by an excessive accumulation of fatty tissue in the body. Obesity is understood as a chronic health disorder. It is based on a polygenetic disposition, is associated with a high level of accompanying and consequential morbidity and requires a long-term treatment and care concept for optimal treatment success.
Why is nutritional therapy important?
Nutritional therapy supports you in positively influencing your health by reducing your weight and keeping it long-term. A complete diet under the supervision of a certified nutritionist can lead to your success by adapting the nutrition plan to your current weight & commonly defined goals for weight loss.
The aim is to supply all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are important to you, energy and protein in the measure that your body is optimally supplied with. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed.
Definition and classification of overweight and obesity
Obesity is defined as an increase in body fat above normal. The basis for calculating the weight classification is the BMI. It is the quotient of weight and height squared (kg / m²). Overweight is defined as a BMI ≥ 25 kg / m2, obesity as a BMI ≥ 30 kg / m2 (WHO, 2000EK IV).
BMI and interpretation: BMI: body mass index
Formula: Body weight in kg : (body height in m) 2
Normal weight: 18.5 - 24.9
Overweight = pre-obesity: 25-29.9
Obesity grade I: 30 - 34.9
Obesity grade II: 35-39.9
Obesity grade III:> 40 = per magna
Children's obesity classification from> 97th percentile
Waist circumference in cm & interpretation:
Risk of Metabolic and Cardiovascular Complications:
Men (increased risk ≥ 94 cm, significantly increased risk (102 cm)
Women (increased risk ≥ 80 cm, significantly increased risk (88 cm)
Fat distribution pattern: "apple type" or so-called "pear type"

Obesity as a risk factor:
- disorders of the carbohydrate metabolism e.g. insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus type 2)
- Dyslipoproteinemia (low HDL cholesterol, hypertriglyceridemia, increased number of small, dense LDL particles)
- hyperuricemia / gout
- Haemostasis disorders (increase in coagulation and inhibition of fibrinolysis)
- Chronic inflammation (e.g. increased CRP)
- Arterial hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy
- Cardiovascular diseases (e.g. coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure)
- Carcinomas (women: e.g. endometrium, cervix, ovaries, breast, kidney, colon; men: e.g. prostate, colon, gall bladder, pancreas, liver, kidney, esophagus)
- Hormonal disorders (e.g. hyperandrogenemia in women, polycystic ovary syndrome, decreased testosterone levels in men, impaired fertility)
- Pulmonary complications (e.g. dyspnea, restrictive ventilation disorders, hypoventilation and sleep apnea syndrome)
- Gastrointestinal diseases (e.g. cholecystolithiasis, acute and chronic cholecystitis, fatty liver, non-alcoholic fatty liver hepatitis (NASH), reflux disease)
- Degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system (e.g. coxarthrosis, gonarthrosis, Spinal syndromes)
- Increased risk of surgery and anesthesia
- General complaints (e.g. increased sweating, joint problems, Exertional dyspnea)
- Restriction of activities of daily living (ADL)
