Best weight loss options Phiadelphia

Americans are obsessed with faster, better, bigger and quicker ways of doing things. While it might be a good thing in certain areas, it might not be so when it comes to losing weight.

Although it is natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly, evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily of 1-2 lbs per week have a better chance of keeping weight off.

How to lose weight with science?5 ways to lose weight according to W8MD

Obesity is treated using one or more of these 5 proven methods for weight loss:
Weight Loss Option 1.

A diet low in calories using Low Calorie Diets (LCD’s) or Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD)

Weight Loss Option 2.
Increased physical activity most effectively with diet low in calories as exercise alone is not that useful for weight loss

Weight Loss Option 3.

Intensive Behavior Therapy(IBT) by a trained obesity medicine physician

Weight Loss Option 4.
Prescription medications such as Phentermine, the new weight loss drug Qsymia, or other medications

Weight Loss Option 5.

Weight-loss bariatric surgery which shrinks the stomach and forces you to have a Low Calorie Diet (number 1 or number 2). Since the stomach can re-expand after a couple of years, and given the complications, risks of surgery etc., bariatric surgery for weight loss is not for every body.

For most people that want a non-surgical weight loss option, the combination of VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) or LCD (Low Calorie Diets) with or without appetite suppressant weight loss medications such as Phentermine, new Qsymia, Topiramate or other FDA approved weight loss medications, along with exercise and behavior therapy is the best way to lose weight under careful medical supervision!

Healthy weight loss isn't just about a "diet" or "program". It's about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.

How many calories to eat to lose weight?

To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500—1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week.

Role of physical activity / exercise for weight loss


While exercise has been very disappointing in research studies as a tool on it's own for weight loss, it can help either in combination with a diet plan or for maintenance of the weight. Read this article on why exercise alone is useless for weight loss!

Once you've achieved a healthy weight, by relying on healthful eating and physical activity most days of the week (about 60—90 minutes, moderate intensity), you are more likely to be successful at keeping the weight off over the long term.

Benefits of Weight Loss

The good news is that no matter what your weight loss goal is, even a modest weight loss, such as 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight, is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even reduce the risk of many cancers.

In addition to improving your health, maintaining a weight loss is likely to improve your life in other ways including improvements in overall health, energy levels, physical mobility, general mood, and self-confidence.

Losing weight is not easy, and it takes commitment and partnership with a weight loss physician for sustained results.
