Is weight management is a generalized process or a patient’s health condition oriented?

Well, weight management is a generalized process.  I can say it is a lifelong process.  All of us have a tendency to gain weight which is an evolutionary tendency for the body to save extra energy. The health condition of the patient is very important.  I mean we always highly recommend that you have a complete medical evaluation before you start weight loss management and weight loss management is always diet oriented and obviously level of activity also. So, if you have diabetes or kidney issues or liver issues or any other issues, or if you are readjusting your diet, we need to make sure that there is a balance in the diet.

  • You have enough essential amino acids.
  • You have enough vitamins and minerals.
  • And we make sure that you remain well hydrated, especially if you take high protein diets, you need a lot of water to drink with it.

We should consider it as a health-oriented condition because we are not just focusing on the weight, we have to focus on your total health in general.  We need your whole metabolic profile before we start requesting you to lose weight so make sure that we are losing weight with our body, we still maintain enough balance so that we stay in the good health.

 All I can understand that if you maintain a balance in your food and getting enough protein, carbohydrates, and fat, it is important for us.

At the same time, we have to maintain that you have minerals, vitamins, and amino acids in your diet.

In other words, yes, we have to maintain a balance in the diet and at the same time in weight management maintain a balance in the number of calories we are taking in and the number of calories we are spending and we educate you about this. We always ask you to maintain a food diary. We always like to have a detailed diet consultation and your food habits.

While weight management is important for us, it is very important to maintain your quality of life also.

We want to do weight management within the spheres of your own likings and disliking of your food habits, especially if you are a young person.
