Weight Loss Management
How Can I Lose Weight?
Losing weight can be difficult, sometimes because of how people approach weight loss. Regular exercise and eating healthily are very important, of course, but they’re not everything. Over the past few years it has become clear that weight is an important health issue. Some people who need to lose weight for their health don’t recognize it, while others who don’t need to lose weight want to get thinner for cosmetic reasons. We understand that in some ways your weight is different from, for example, your cholesterol level or your blood pressure, because you can’t see what these are by looking at someone. Many patients have had health care providers who approached their weight in a less-than-sensitive or helpful manner. Some patients may have had health care encounters in which they felt blamed, but not helped. Successful weight management is a long-term challenge.
Weight can affect a person’s self-esteem. Excess weight is highly visible and evokes some powerful reactions, however unfairly, from other people and from the people who carry the excess weight. The amount of weight loss needed to improve your health may be much less than you wish to lose, when
you consider how you evaluate your weight. Research has shown that your health can be greatly improved by a loss of 510 percent of your starting weight. That doesn’t mean you have to stop there, but it does mean that an initial goal of losing 510 percent of your starting weight is both realistic and valuable.

Phentermine is an appetite suppressant used as an adjunct for short-term (e.g., 8—12 weeks) treatment in obesity.
As a stimulant similar to some amphetamines, phentermine acts as an appetite suppressant by stimulating branches of the sympathetic nervous system located within the central nervous system and is best used when used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle. Phentermine is indicated in the management of exogenous obesity as a short term (several weeks) adjunct in a regimen of weigh reduction based on caloric restriction. It is often recommended for obese patients who possess greater risk factors for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
