Successful weight loss and healthy weight management.

It is important to look at a plan that includes strategies for a proven weight loss method followed by a maintenance or lifestyle program to maintain weight loss. There is nothing more disappointing than regaining the weight after an enormous amount of dedication and hard work to lose the extra pounds has been made. Long term success requires permanent changes in behavior, eating habits and physical activity.

Many conditions that contribute to excess weight and obesity are related to over eating, high sugar and fat intake, inactivity, hormonal changes, medications and stress. Obesity is not just a cosmetic factor it is a chronic medical condition, defined by excess body fat and has reached epidemic proportions in North America. It can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and has been associated with an increased risk of numerous other health conditions.

Diet is the practice of eating foods in a regulated fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight and may include supplements. Typically a diet or weight loss plan has a beginning and an end when the desired goal is reached. Weight loss typically involves the loss of fat, water and muscle.
