People, all over the world, struggle with weight management at some or the other point in their lives. There are several types of treatments that are available which can be tailored to meet an individual's specific requirements. Treatments may include changes in lifestyle, exercise, dieting and, in some cases, weight loss medicines or weight loss surgery. Your medical history, body mass index and waist circumference are considered before deciding the combination of treatments that will work best for you. The first step in any such treatment is to set a realistic goal and then decide which methods would meet your requirement with the help of your doctor. Lifestyle changes include a change in your eating habits, diet, and exercise. A nutritionist will help you in chalking out a healthy diet plan that corrects your eating habits. Exercise like walking, jogging or a gym routine may be suggested under a physical trainer. It is difficult to stick to lifestyle changes in the long-run and individuals tend to lose motivation. The weight management program should, therefore, include psychologists and support groups that can guide you to stay on course. They can help you to remain positive and manage stress and other triggers that can lead to excessive eating. The duration and the cost of such programs vary with the individual requirement. Weight loss medication is suggested only in cases where it is deemed necessary, keeping in mind the other medications or ailments that the individual may be struggling with. Surgery is suggested only in extreme cases where all other methods have failed. The success of weight management treatment rests on the individual, as much, as on the doctor
