If you are overweight or obese you have an increased risk of developing various health problems. Even a modest amount of weight loss can help reduce your increased health risks.
The best chance of losing weight and keeping weight off is to be committed to a change in lifestyle; this includes eating a healthy diet and doing some regular exercise.
Please do contact us at the surgery if you need advice and assistance to help you lose weight.
