Weight loss cure is one of the top terms people use to search online for ways to lose weight. With so much confusing and misleading pieces of information, and with over 20,000 books written on this topic, losing weight is a complicated and difficult to separate the truth from myth for many people. Here are top 10 steps for weight loss compiled by a practicing and experienced weight loss doctor and founder of WikiMD, Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD.

Weight loss cure step 1

The most important step for anybody that is trying to lose weight is to pay attention to what is causing their weight gain.

Weight loss cure step 2

Once you get an idea of some of the common causes of weight gain, such as insulin resistance, the next step is to know your body mass index.

Weight loss cure step 3

If you are not physically very active, or exercise on a regular basis, you may want to start moderate to severe intensity activity for about 30 minutes or so a day along with a restrictive diet. Understand that physical activity alone is pretty useless for weight loss due to the appetite stimulating effect of exercise.

Weight loss cure step 4

Understand that exercise combines well with a restrictive diet and given the health benefits of exercise, a combined restrictive diet along with physical activity is recommended.

Weight loss cure step 5

Understand the role of very low calorie diet of 800 calories or more under medical supervision to lose weight fast.

Weight loss cure step 6

If you cannot do a very low calorie diet under medical supervision, your alternative is to consider a low calorie diet of 1200-1500 calories using low [[glycemic index}glycemic]], low calorie foods with few empty calories.

Weight loss cure step 7

Understand the role of low calorie meal replacements that will provide nutrition but only have limited calories of 100-160 calories each meal so you can still eat 4-6 times but with very limited calories, and almost no empty calories.

Weight loss cure step 8

Understand the role of weight loss medications or weight loss pills including Qsymia, Belviq, Phentermine, Topiramate etc.

Weight loss medications

In 2012, the FDA approved two new weight loss medications Qsymia and Belviq after years of rejecting many other weight loss medications. There are other traditional and time tested weight loss medications such as Phentermine, Phendimetrazine etc.
