If you are obese, surgery to lose weight may be safer than carrying around those extra pounds. But is losing weight worth the risks associated with surgery? Take a look at the latest research.
Out of the millions Americans who are overweight and go on a diet each year, many regain all or a part of the weight they lose within five years.
Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.
Medical treatment can help with weight loss if your own efforts are unsuccessful—or if you have a medical condition that makes it crucial to lose weight.
Whatever treatment plan a person follows, losing weight slowly will be more effective and healthy over the long term.
