So who should consider advanced weight loss options? Anyone whose weight is excessive enough to be a health problem.
I have written about several approaches to weight loss. First and always is lifestyle changes involving food choices, and eating habits. Along with that, one needs to start or increase physical activity. There are many different ways to achieve these, from books, videos, group activities, online programs, counselling and many combinations of these. For those folks who still can’t reach goal, the next options are weight loss medications, which I have discussed previously, and surgery.
After gaining weight with pregnancies, one woman successfully lost weight with gastric bypass surgery. Read about the lifestyle changes she made at this article from American Family Physician journal.
