Losing Weight Needs Changing Lifestyle

Font : A-A+

Losing Weight Needs Changing Lifestyle

For most obese individuals, obesity is a long-term condition that requires a lifetime of attention even after a formal weight loss treatment ends. Although very low calorie diets are efficient for short-term weight loss, they are no more effective than other dietary treatments in the long-term maintenance of reduced weight.

Therefore, obese patients should be encouraged to commit to a long-term treatment program that includes permanent lifestyle changes of healthier eating, regular physical activity,and an improved outlook about food because without a long-term commitment, their body weights will drift back up the scale.
