Healthy weight loss is not about a ‘diet’. It’s about making changes to your lifestyle by adopting healthy eating patterns and having a more active lifestyle (and sitting less). You are more likely to be successful at keeping the weight off when the changes you make to your lifestyle are healthy, realistic and sustainable.
If a person is overweight or obese, even small amounts of weight loss (5 per cent of bodyweight, for example, 5kg for someone that weighs 100kg) can have a range of health benefits such as improved blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugars.
Making changes to your diet and physical activity can also have health benefits that are independent of weight loss including increased energy, better sleep and reduced risk of depression.
Having a doctor monitor you on your weight loss journey can help you keep on track and stay motivated. The health benefits of maintaining a healthy weight are enormous.
