Weight Loss Science Reviewed By A Weight Loss Doctor

  • Are you a bit overweight or obese? Overwhelmed-Obese-Woman-Looking-398
  • Are you searching for ways to lose weight or body fat?
  • Are you interested in understanding what is causing you to gain weight?
  • Do you have belly fat or upper body weight that you are trying to lose?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone. As a fellowship trained obesity medicine physician, let me review proven and effective ways to lose weight.

No matter what anybody might tell you  – there are about 5 proven ways to lose weight.

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.

 Let us look at each of these weight loss options and how to combine different options such as VLCD or LCD with a weight loss medication, with a little bit of exercise for optimal and fast weight loss.
