Weight management

Weight management is currently identified as a very significant health care challenge. Obesity incidence is at a record high in Australia and, as a consequence, the diseases linked to obesity are becoming more prevalent.

These include:
• Diabetes;
• Impaired glucose tolerance;
• Hypertension;
• Coronary heart disease;
• Elevated blood lipids;
• Stroke;
• Sleep apnoea;
• Day-time sleepiness;
• Fatigue;
• Osteoarthritis;
• Back pain;
• Impaired fertility;
• PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome);
• Depression;
• Liver disease;
• Gout,; and
• Certain cancers (e.g.: breast, colon, endometrial cancer).

Obesity is due to a combination of behavioural, environmental and biological factors. Significant or longstanding obesity may have a compounding negative impact on managing these contributing factors.

Hence, a multi-disciplinary team approach is required. The initial aim of our weight management programme is to identify the different roles each of the recognized contributing factors has in the individual’s weight management. This allows us to make personal and relevant recommendations in developing a programme addressing the specific needs individual. Our advice is aimed to assist successful weight management, but in a holistic manner whereby it is sustainable and encourages a healthy balanced lifestyle. Our initial assessment also aims to identify co-existing medical issues with a view to optimizing overall health management. The programme includes:
• The identification of the most suitable weight loss option;
• The development of an enjoyable and nutritious eating plan which provides choice and variety but is compatible with weight loss; and
• The development of an activity programme that is appropriate for sustainable weight loss, but achievable, factoring in lifestyle commitments.

Being overweight is not an addiction or an illness, it is caused when a person takes in more calories than they expend. A food addiction is a very different condition in which being overweight is a byproduct.
