WEIGHT LOSS BASIS

Your weight is a balancing act, and calories are part of
that equation. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take
in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages, and
increasing calories burned through physical activity.
While that seems simple, it can be challenging to implement
a practical, effective and sustainable weight-loss plan.
But you don’t have to do it alone. Talk to your doctor,
family and friends for support. Ask yourself if now is a good time and if
you’re ready to make some necessary changes. Also, plan smart: Anticipate how
you’ll handle situations that challenge your resolve and the inevitable minor
setbacks.
If you have serious health problems because of your weight,
your doctor may suggest weight-loss surgery or medications for you. In this
case, your doctor will discuss the potential benefits and the possible risks
with you.
But don’t forget the bottom line: The key to successful
weight loss is a commitment to making changes in your diet and exercise habits.
