BURLINGTON, MA—How often we get inspired by a friend or by reading an article or a book and jump on the band wagon to keep ourselves healthy and lose weight. We start doing exercises, go on a strict diet or a combination of both and more. Sometimes these strategies work and often they don’t. We either give up or don’t succeed in our mission.
First the numbers: 34 million American adults are obese, meaning 30 percent are over their ideal weight; 108 million Americans are on diet, and 80 percent of them are women. They make four-to-five attempts each year to lose weight.
In this video interview, Dr. Rosy Sandhu, MD, founder of Neem Medical Spa & Wellness Center, talks about top five recommendations for weight loss:
1-Before you start your weight loss strategies, get a full physical exam by a physician.
2-Get a body composition analysis.
3-Plan a low calorie diet and make behavior modification.
4-Explore the role of medications in weight loss.
5-Look into options like body contouring devices and surgery.
Dr. Sandhu is scheduled to speak about weight loss, hair restoration and anti-aging at the upcoming Mega Health and Wellness Expo, which will be held on Sunday, April 3, 2016, at Burlington Marriott Hotel in Burlington, MA. She will speak at 1:45 pm.
