Safe and successful weight-loss programs should include

  • behavioral treatment, also called lifestyle counseling, that can teach you how to develop and stick with healthier eating and physical activity habits—for example, keeping food and activity records or journals
  • information about getting enough sleep, managing stress, and the benefits and drawbacks of weight-loss medicines
  • ongoing feedback, monitoring, and support throughout the program, either in person, by phone, online, or through a combination of these approaches
  • slow and steady weight-loss goals—usually 1 to 2 pounds per week (though weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)
  • a plan for keeping the weight off, including goal setting, self-checks such as keeping a food journal, and counseling support
