In this article, we will discuss the various weight loss diets.

Who will benefit from weight-loss?

Anybody who has the body mass index of 25 or more is considered overweight. Studies have shown that even a small amount of weight loss has significant benefits. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy while a BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight.

A BMI of 30 or more is considered to be obesityobese.

Distribution of the body weight - belly fat

Another important measure to consider for weight-loss used to know your distribution body weight.

If you have excess body weight in or around your tummy, your risk of medical problems related to your weight are increased.

Central distribution of weight is this sign of insulin resistance which leads to metabolic syndrome, prediabetes or even type 2 diabetes.

Waist a circumference of over 40 inches in the mid section of the body in men or 35 inches or more in women (lower in Asians) is considered a risk factor even if your overall body weight and BMI is normal.

Metabolically obese, normal weight

It is called metabolically obese, normal weight(MONW), when your overall weight is normal but you do have a distribution of body fat issue with excess belly or tummy fat.

Since excess belly fat increases the inflammation in the body, the risk of health problems increases in those with a relatively large waist.

Obesity trends

According to the CDC, up to 70 percent of the population are either overweight or obese. WikiMD brings the latest science and art of treating obesity moderated by a Weight loss doctor

How much weight should I lose?

If you are overweight or obese, aim for a normal body mass index although even a smaller weight loss of about 5-10% of your body weight should be initial goal to lose weight.

Do not confuse healthy eating as weight loss eating

Most people make the common mistake that eating healthy is weight loss. However, it is important to recognize that losing weight requires somewhat different strategy called Very low calorie diet or low calorie diet.

What medical problems are causes by obesity?

Many medical conditions are related to being overweight or obese.

How to lose weight fast and reasonably safe?

In order to lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you use. You can do this by creating and following a plan for healthy eating and a plan for regular physical activity.

Key to weight loss success

The secret or key to weight loss success is to understand the true causes of weight gain such as the all too common and insulin resistance that causes not only weight gain but also metabolic starvation.

Stop blaming the victim

It is also vital to not blame the victim or yourself as insulin resistance drives the eating habits and cravings due to the metabolic starvation that happens with high insulin levels. As this compensation to insulin resistance leads to weight gain, most people with this metabolic cause of weight gain find it hard to lose weight.

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

It is important to work with a trained and experienced weight loss physician for fast and safe weight loss given the effects and dangers of of unmonitored weight loss. A weight loss physician will not only identify any insulin resistance, or other causes of weight gain, but also offer the right combination of measures including any appropriate weight loss medications, diet pills for appetite suppression.

Types of weight loss programs

There are two different types of weight-loss programs available for losing weight. The two main types of weight loss programs are:

clinical and nonclinical weight loss programs.

For best results and for safety, most people would benefit from using the services of a trained weight loss physician that work with your insurance for the weight loss physician visits.
