Your weight is a balancing act, and calories are part of that equation. Fad diets may promise you that counting carbs or eating a mountain of grapefruit will make the pounds drop off. But when it comes to weight loss, it’s calories that count. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages, and increasing calories burned through physical activity.
Though it is a simple matter of will power and sweat, the science says that the key to being in shape is a bit more complicated even if you eat right and stay active, especially if you were unlucky enough to have inherited a genetic predisposition for the condition or if you have an underlying medical condition.
Hence, the treatment would be to treat the underlying cause if any, modify lifestyle, habits, diet and increase physical activities.
There are some safe and effective non-surgical treatments, technology and therapies other than diet and exercise like homeopathic medications, U-Lipolysis, Radiofrequency, Mesotherapy that help to break down the fat and tighten the skin in the most stubborn areas.
All these treatments and therapies are safe and most effective when combined with nutrition and a well planned diet and physical exercises.
But don’t forget the bottom line: The key to successful weight loss is a commitment to making indefinite changes in your diet, habits, exercise and your life style.
