The treatment methods followed depend on the severity of obesity, overall health and willingness to participate in the weight-loss programmes.

Dietary changes – Steady weight loss over the long term is considered as the best way to lose weight. The dietary changes one needs to make, involve going for healthier food choices and restricting certain foods.

Physical activity – Regular aerobic exercises can help in burning calories and lose extra weight quite efficiently. One can also start by making simple changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, moving around periodically, etc.

Behaviour changes – The behaviour modification program aims at encouraging patients to identify the habits and factors that contributed to their obesity and take steps to address them. Patients can take part in support groups and also talk to a mental health professional to help them deal with the emotional and behavioural issues related to eating.

Prescription weight loss medication – Weight loss medication is recommended if the exercise and diet programs didn’t work effectively. These medications help the patient to stick to a low-calorie diet by suppressing the signals of hunger and lack of fullness. The doctor will consider the patient’s health history before prescribing any medication.
