Lifestyle Adaptation

There are various factors that can impact an individual’s weight gain, many of these are extremely difficult to control.

These include environmental factors such as a person’s workplace, finances, education and family or community support and planning.

There are also personal factors such as genetics, hormones and metabolism that significantly impact weight.

There are however a few key factors that are within a person’s control and for some individuals working with a team of specialised and experienced healthcare professionals in the fields of diet, metabolic health and exercise can be the critical first steps towards achieving their weight loss goals.

It is important to note that unfortunately despite many individuals trying to adapt their lifestyle to achieve weight loss for many achieving long-term weight loss is extremely difficult, particularly in case of severe obesity.

These factors include;

  • Diet modification through engaging with a Dietitian or Nutritionist
  • Implementing an exercise and activity program with an Exercise Physiologist or another fitness professional
  • Behavioural modification to adjust sleep patterns and stress levels for example

 

It’s important that appropriately qualified health professionals, are involved in the development of your weight loss lifestyle plan. There are other options for you to consider if this path has not worked for you.

Who is appropriate for a weight loss lifestyle plan?

This pathway is most suitable for individuals who have a BMI of less than 30 and with no or few medical conditions. However, for those with a BMI of greater than 30 a lifestyle plan in conjunction with other medical therapies or surgical treatments may be an option.
