Do you want to lose weight? Have you been thinking about joining a weight-loss program but didn’t know which one is right for you?
If yes, you are not alone. A large percentage of American adults are overweight. At the same time many weight loss programs are out there. But are they safe? And which one will work for you?
When looking at a weight loss program, it’s important to go for one that will meet your present needs as well as set you up for long-term success.
Generally speaking, weight loss programs that aim for a steady weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week should be good. Beware of any crash diets and promises of losing too much, too soon!
Here are a few questions, the answers to which will help you make the right decision for your needs and preferences.
- Does the weight loss clinic have certified weight loss specialists and nutritionists to help you lose weight? Do they offer support throughout and after the program?
- Is the weight loss program medically safe?
- Who sets the weight loss goal: you, or someone else?
- Are the food choices limited? Is there a check on the nutritional value of the foods and/or meals offered?
- What is the average weight loss achieved by past clients?
- Are there any side effects or possible complications?
- Is there a transition plan to help you keep the weight off and move to your own meals once you have achieved your weight loss goal?
- What is the total cost of the program?
To be able to make an informed decision –
- write down all of your questions before you visit the weight loss clinic so that you can ask their expert
- mention all medicines and any dietary supplements you take
- tell them about the diets or other weight loss programs you may have tried already
