The Weight Loss Equation:
Calories-in Must be Lower than Calories-out

Your Body Weight is controlled by the number of calories you eat and the number of calories you use each day. So, to lose weight you need to take in fewer calories than you use. You can do this by becoming more physically active or by eating fewer calories.

Weight Loss Diets and Programs

  • Weight loss surgical interventions, involving bariatric or gastrointestinal weight loss surgery are only a viable option for those suffering from serious obesity, or medium obesity with serious weight-related risk factors. Weight Loss Surgery is a health procedure not a cosmetic or easy-weight-loss procedure. For long term weight control, weight loss surgery must be combined with good dietary and exercise practices.

  • Serious overweight or Obesity is a complex issue and requires a long term approach involving behavioral as well as diet and exercise changes. Buying 'miracle' Weight Loss Products or services is not recommended for lasting weight loss and control.
