Nonsurgical Treatment of Obesity
The first step toward weight loss is to eat less and to exercise more. The goal is not to lose all the excess weight. Losing even 10% of your weight can significantly lower you risk of developing obesity-related medical problems. However, over the long term, these strategies alone are not always successful for weight loss.
