The goal of obesity treatment is to reach and stay at a healthy weight. You may need to work with a team of health professionals — including a dietitian, behavior therapist or an obesity specialist — to help you understand and make changes in your eating and activity habits.

All weight-loss programs require changes in your eating habits and increased physical activity. The treatment methods that are right for you depend on your level of obesity, your overall health and your willingness to participate in a weight-loss plan. Other treatment tools may include:

- Changes in your diet
- Activity levels and exercise
- Behavioral changes
- Prescription weight-loss medications
- Weight-loss surgery

To overcome obesity, it is essential to reduce calorie intake, eat healthier and be more active. Although you may lose weight quickly at first, a slow and steady weight loss program over the long term is considered the safest way to lose weight and the best way to keep it off for good.


Being overweight is generally caused by the intake of more calories (by eating) than are expended by the body (by exercise and everyday living). Factors that may contribute to this imbalance include:

    Eating disorders (such as binge eating)
Genetic predisposition
    Hormonal imbalances (e.g. hypothyroidism)
Insufficient or poor-quality sleep
    Limited physical exercise and sedentary lifestyle
Poor nutrition
    Metabolic disorders, which could be caused by repeated attempts to lose weight by weight cycling
Overeating, Pregnancy
    Psychotropic medication (e.g. olanzapine)
Smoking cessation and other stimulant withdrawal

People who have insulin dependant diabetes and chronically overdose insulin may gain weight, while people who already are overweight may develop insulin tolerance, and in the long run type II diabetes.

Being Overweight

Being overweight is essentially having more body fat than is necessary for optimal health. It is more common in all age groups. especially where food supplies are in abundance and lifestyles are sedentary.

Globally, individuals with
excess weight have reached epidemic proportions. A healthy body requires a minimal amount of fat for proper functioning of the hormonal, reproductive, and immune systems, as thermal insulation, as shock absorption for sensitive areas, and as energy for future use. Now, the accumulation of too much stored fat can impair movement, flexibility, and alter body appearance.

If you burn 500 more calories than you eat every day for a week, you should lose about 1-2 pounds.
If you want to lose weight faster, you'll need to
eat less and exercise more.

Obesity and being overweight in general, may increase the risk of many health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. If you are pregnant, excess weight may lead to short- and long-term health problems for you and your child.
