Weight Loss

Your weight is a huge determinant of health and wellbeing, and it is strongly advised by healthcare professionals that you stay within a healthy BMI (Body Mass Index). For most adults, this is in the range of 18.5 to 24.9 (with some exceptions for those with dense muscle mass). If you are overweight or obese, you should aim to lose enough weight to re-enter the healthy BMI bracket in order to preserve health and prevent the development of conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, which can hugely impact your quality of life.

What can impact your weight?

The main factors that can impact your weight are your diet and your level of physical activity. A diet that is high in fats and sugars and excessive alcohol consumption has been proven to considerably heighten your risk of obesity and overall poor health. This risk is exacerbated by a lack of frequent exercise. Your weight can also be impacted by social and psychological factors – the habits of those who you live with and around can hugely impact your diet and exercise regimes. Mental health difficulties can also result in weight gain due to increased consumption of food to manage emotional stress. Genetics are also a contributing factor to your weight, as they can affect the metabolism of food and other factors.

Your weight has the potential to affect a number of different areas of your life, particularly if you develop any weight-related conditions or complications. Some common consequences of a severe weight gain are type 2 diabetes, reproductive issues, coronary heart disease, asthma, or psychological stress, although there are many more.

Weight loss has the potential to improve your quality of life and lower your risk of various different health conditions. However, it is important to make sure that you lose weight safely. If you are unsure about your weight loss journey, do not hesitate to contact a healthcare professional to discuss the process and gain more support.

There are various medications that can be prescribed to assist with the weight loss process, including orlistat, Alli, XLS medical, and Xenicol. These usually work through reducing the fats or calories that are absorbed from your food. Medications for weight loss should always be combined with efforts to change diet and exercise.
