When we are carrying too much weight, it puts stress on the working of our body and can result in a number of conditions or discomfort. There are many different approaches to weight loss however some methods, such as appetite suppressing drugs, are unnatural, unsafe and can quickly become ineffective for long-term health results.
Going through a weight loss journey can have a significant psychological impact on an individual. Weight loss obsession has very real potential to develop into eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia. Tailored approaches to weight loss are key to achieving success in weight loss, without positive and lasting impacts that help the individual feel empowered, have a positive understanding of body image and an overall improved sense of wellbeing.
Therapies which are complementary to weight loss are:

There are a wide range of conflicting opinions regarding weight loss and a healthy diet will be one that is tailored to the needs of the individual. What is agreed upon is the need to be patient and accept a slow journey to losing weight; one which does not promote quick results and minimum losses as these typically result in short-term gains but long-term are unsustainable, meaning individuals often end up where they started.
Successful weight loss will encourage a system of moderation over starvation to achieve a balance between a healthy body weight and a healthy lifestyle for sustainable, optimal results. By denying yourself foods you love, cutting out entire food groups or using extended periods of starvation to lose weight can make you more susceptible to develop an eating disorder or disease into your body.
Tailored weight loss programs should address nutrient deficiencies, cultivate a healthy attitude and understanding towards food, fundamentally change the way we understand our existing relationships to food and the importance of exercise in the journey.
Exercise is an integral part of the weight loss journey and motivation. The ‘high’ that comes from exercise can trigger a natural tendency towards a healthier lifestyle and improved outlook towards weight loss.
