Weight loss is not just about eating less and exercising

It is not about taking pills like orlistat, Mysimba or the ones available on the internet like ketogenic pills. Even saxenda, which is also loosely called the “skinny jab” does not work on its own. Research has consistently shown that the long term efficacy is only possible when associated with life style changes.

Weight is a symptom of a problem

Unless the underlying problem is identified and tackled weight loss will only be temporary. There are several reasons for weight gain, some of which are listed below:

  • Altered hunger
  • Problems with fullness
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Malabsorption
  • Hormonal problems
  • Medication related
  • Life changing events
  • Stress, anxiety and depression

and many more……….

In order to ensure sustained weight loss and to improve body image, self confidence, self esteem and most importantly health, one needs to have a holistic assessment followed by relevant investigations to determine the underlying issues.

Repeated dieting is also known to lower the Basal Metabolic Rate(BMR), thereby preventing future weight loss.
