Weight loss success stories

Losing fat can be a challenging task for many people, and with so much conflicting information out there, it's tough to know where to start. However, evidence-based medicine has shown that specific strategies can help people lose fat and keep it off in the long term. One such strategy is a comprehensive weight loss program that includes dietary modifications, exercise, behavioral therapy, and, if necessary, medication. W8MD Weight Loss, Sleep and MedSpa is a weight loss center that offers evidence-based medicine to help people achieve their weight loss goals. It is important to note that true fat loss is not the same as weight loss as you can lose weight by losing muscle.

Dietary Modifications

A healthy and balanced diet is an essential aspect of losing fat. Evidence-based medicine shows that a diet with a moderate amount of carbohydrates, a higher amount of protein, and a lower amount of fat can help individuals lose fat and improve body composition. One approach that has been shown to be effective for fat loss is a low-calorie diet (LCD) or a very low-calorie diet (VLCD). VLCDs are defined as diets with 800 calories or less per day and are generally used under medical supervision.


Physical activity is also an essential part of losing fat and maintaining a healthy weight. Research shows that regular exercise can help individuals lose fat, especially when combined with dietary modifications but not alone. The American Heart Association recommends that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity per week. Additionally, strength training is essential for maintaining muscle mass, which can help boost metabolism and aid in fat loss.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy can help individuals make long-term changes to their eating and exercise habits, which can lead to sustainable weight loss. One approach that has been shown to be effective is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT aims to help individuals identify and modify negative thought patterns and behaviors that can lead to overeating and a sedentary lifestyle.

Weight loss medications

In some cases, weight loss medications may be necessary to aid in weight loss. Medications for weight loss work by suppressing appetite, increasing metabolism, or inhibiting the absorption of fat. These medications should be used under the guidance of a medical professional and in conjunction with dietary modifications and exercise.
