Weight loss: Eat less, eat balanced: but more importantly, begin to exercise as this is the key to long-term success. Not only do you burn calories when you exercise, you increase muscle mass (which further increases calorie consumption), and keep your heart healthy. Consult your clinician before beginning an exercise program.

No: Good dietary habits and exercise are the best approaches.Medication is not a safe effective answer.
