Excessive weight and obesity can pose risks to your health, and in some cases, generate long-term problems including disease. Some of the problems you may face with being overweight include:
To put it simply, in order to lose weight, a person must spend more energy than he or she consumes over a sustained period of time. On average a person must create a deficit of 3,500 calories to lose one pound. That deficit can be created by limiting intake or increasing the calories burned. Keeping up the changes to see that deficit can be challenging when losing weight at a safe and slow rate does not produce dramatic results. This is why a doctor monitored program can help. The doctor will make their best recommendations based on their knowledge about the patient, and with regular follow-up appointments, adjustments can be made if weight loss plateaus.
