Weight management

Losing weight as a part of weight management is very important because being overweight increases your risk of many health conditions such as heart problems, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, sleep apnea to name a few.

The best way to lose weight is to eat less calories than what you normally consume and to do exercise. Cutting down 500 calories per day will result in a slow but steady weight loss of about .5 Kilos at the end of the week. If you manage to exercise 30 minutes daily for most of the days during the week and with some lifestyle modifications you will be more likely to keep that weight off!

Therefore, there are no quick fix treatment strategies. Many strategies that aim for rapid weight loss usually result in rapid weight regain.

We know that even modest weight reduction can have great health benefits including: lowered blood pressure, reduced blood cholesterol levels, reduced risk of diabetes or improvement in diabetes control, decreased chance of stroke, heart disease and overall mortality.

In summary, the goal in treatment is to achieve and maintain a healthier weight.

General diet guidelines for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight include: eating more nutritious foods that have low energy density, eating less energy dense foods, and educating yourself in reading food labels, estimating calories and serving sizes.
