Treating Obesity

  1. Even With Weight-Loss Drugs, Losing Pounds Isn't Easy

    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.

  2. Maintaining Weight Loss

    Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.

  3. Medical Treatment for Obesity

    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.

  4. Obesity Treatment Overview

    Whatever treatment plan a person follows, losing weight slowly will be more effective and healthy over the long term.

  5. Weight Matters: When Willpower Isn't Enough

    Most medical weight-loss programs first try to help you make the long-term behavioral changes necessary to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. This includes exercising regularly and eating healthy food. If you still remain seriously overweight, you and your doctor might discuss these options.
