Weight Loss Simplified
Excess weight affects life and prevents us from enjoying day to day activities. It makes each day a weighty problem.Many conditions like hormonal imbalance, hereditary conditions, poor diet choices and lack of physical activity over a long period are responsible for weight gain and obesity. Several medical conditions are associated with being overweight like diabetes, hypertension, heart related ailments, sleep apnea, joint issues etc. Significant improvement or resolution of these conditions can be obtained by losing excess weight.
Not all weight gain and excess weight can be conquered with exercise and diet therapy. Bariatric surgery may be the next step for people who remain severely obese after exhausting all non-surgical approaches or for people who have an obesity-related illness.
