Weight Management Q & A

What are Common Problems Many People Face When They are Overweight?

Individuals who carry an excessive amount of weight can experience a wide range of health concerns. Diabetes, heart conditions, poor circulation, and joint disease are all common in individuals who are considered to be overweight. Individuals who have carried excessive amounts of weight for long periods of time may experience joint deterioration that can lead to arthritis. Losing weight can help prevent many of these conditions from occurring. In situations where they already exist, losing weight can help to manage them and allow a person to live a more normal lifestyle.

Can a Medically Supervised Weight Loss Plan Help?

A medically supervised weight loss plan can help a person drop unwanted pounds safely and effectively. The main benefit from this type of weight loss is the patient is given the tools and support they need to lose the weight and keep it off. They are taught healthy lifestyle habits they can begin to use that, once established, will stay with them throughout their lifetime. Doctors who create medically supervised weight loss plans help a patient to re-establish healthy eating patterns, include exercise on a regular basis, get the rest they need, and above all, change their perception of good health and emotional well-being.

What is Involved in Healthy Weight Management?

To create a healthy weight management plan, the patient must first learn about the habits that caused them to gain weight. They must identify the unhealthy habits and patterns and replace them with ones that are meant to improve their health. This includes creating a healthy, nutritious diet plan full of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins. Exercise is also a must. The patient must also learn the importance of adequate amounts of rest. With any medically supervised weight loss program, one of the key components is a positive environment and sufficient support from friends, family, and their primary care doctor.
