At Life Medical we help many patients with Weight Management. We define Weight Management as a long-term approach to a healthy lifestyle. It can include a variety of different treatment modalities offered at our clinic as well as a balance of healthy eating and physical exercise to balance energy expenditure and energy intake.
Developing healthy eating habits while using tips that will keep us fuller longer can be useful tools in weight management. Knowing what your body needs is important to weight management and can control overconsumption and under consumption of food.
Weight management does not include fad diets that promote quick, temporary weight loss. It focuses on the long-term results that are achieved through physician-monitored fast weight loss, followed by retention of an ideal body weight for age, sex and height. Obesity is a risk factor for many chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Managing weight is one factor in preventing such chronic diseases.
