Weight Management


Weight management is the process of adopting healthy lifestyle habits to maintain a healthy body weight. It involves a combination of physical activity, healthy eating, and behavior modification to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Managing one’s weight is important for overall health and wellbeing as being overweight or obese increases the risk of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
The causes of weight gain or obesity can vary, and may include genetic factors, a sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits, hormonal imbalances, stress, and medication use. In some cases, underlying medical conditions may contribute to weight gain or difficulty losing weight.
Symptoms of being overweight or obese may include difficulty breathing, joint pain, fatigue, and increased sweating. However, not all individuals who are overweight or obese experience symptoms.
Diagnosis of being overweight or obese is typically based on body mass index (BMI), which is a calculation of an individual’s weight and height. A BMI of 25-29.9 is considered overweight, while a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
Weight management treatment typically involves a combination of healthy eating, physical activity, and behavior modification. This may include working with a registered dietitian or nutritionist to develop a healthy eating plan, increasing physical activity levels, and making lifestyle changes to reduce stress and improve sleep habits. In some cases, weight loss medications or bariatric surgery may be recommended.


It’s important to approach weight management in a safe and sustainable way. Rapid weight loss or extreme dieting can be harmful to health, and it’s important to work with a healthcare professional to develop a personalized weight management plan that is safe and effective. Additionally, individuals with underlying medical conditions or those taking medications should consult with a healthcare provider before starting a weight management program.
