How To Select A Weight Loss Program

Choosing a weight loss program may be a daunting task. You may not know what to look for in a weight-loss program or what questions to ask. This information can help you make an informed decision about joining a program.

A Responsible and Safe Weight-loss Program.

Experts agree that the best way to reach a healthy weight is to follow a sensible eating plan and engage in regular physical activity. Weight loss programs should encourage healthy behaviours that help you lose weight and that you can maintain over time. A safe and effective weight loss program should include:

1. Healthy eating plans that reduce calories but do not rule out specific foods or food groups

2. Regular physical activity and/or exercise instruction

3. Tips on healthy behaviour changes that also consider your cultural needs

4. Slow and steady weight loss of about ¾ to 2 pounds per week and not more than 3 pounds per week (weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)

5. A plan to keep the weight off after you have lost it

Ask Questions

Gather as much information as you can before deciding to join a program. Providers of weight-loss programs should be able to answer these questions:

1. What does the weight loss program consist of?

2. What are the staff qualifications?

3. Does the product or program carry any risks?

4. How much does the program costs?

5. What results do participants typically have?

3. Do participants talk with a medical professional?

4. Does a medical professional oversee the program?

5. Will the program providers work with your personal health care provider if you have a medical condition or are taking prescribed medications?

2. Can the program provide references?
