Obesity Treatment

How is obesity treated?
The method of treatment depends on your level of obesity, overall health condition, and motivation to lose weight. Treatment includes a combination of diet, exercise, behavior modification, and sometimes weight-loss drugs. In cases of severe obesity, gastrointestinal surgery may be recommended.

How you can lower your health risks 
If you are overweight, losing as little as 7-10 percent of your body weight may improve many of the problems linked to being overweight, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Slow and steady weight loss of no more than 1-2 pounds per week is the safest way to lose weight. Too rapid weight loss can cause you to lose muscle rather than fat. It also increases your chances of developing other problems, such as gallstones and nutrient deficiencies. Making long-term changes in your eating and physical activity habits is the only way to lose weight AND keep it off!

Improve eating habits
Whether you are trying to lose weight or maintain your weight, you must improve your eating habits. Eat a variety of foods, especially pasta, rice, wholemeal bread, and other whole-grain foods. Reduce your fat-intake. You should also eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

Increase exercise
Making physical activity a part of your daily life is an important way to help control your weight. Try to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day on most days of the week. The activity does not have to be done all at once. It can be done in stages: 10 minutes here, 20 minutes there, providing it adds up to 30 minutes a day.

Please note:
If you suffer from obesity and wish to lose weight, you MUST see a doctor before starting any form of diet or exercise program. Obesity is not a trivial condition. It requires professional help.
