Weight loss: Losing weigh requires dedication and hard work. It is important to understand what a healthy body weight is for ourselves, and start to address the factors that led to the weight gain in the first place. A support system is key. Calories in and calories out need to be addressed. A daily walking program is a good way to start. Cut out soda, juices and junk food from your diet.

See Dr. and eat less: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories.

MANY: I assume your are asking what is available to help you with weight loss. There are numerous prescription oral medications, as well as injectables available (approved by the FDA for weight loss purposes). All those however, do not work without implementing a reasonable diet and other lifestyle changes. For safe & sustained weightloss therapy planning, speak with your doctor.
