Obesity is another health challenge affecting the majority of Australia’s population. Obesity is mainly caused by an imbalance of calories consumed and those expended. However, it may also be a result of depression, genetics, some medications; such as antidepressants, and diseases such as Cushing and hypothyroidism. The most effective treatment of obesity includes proper dieting, physical exercise, and cognitive behavioural therapy. Achieving treatment of obesity using a diet involves swapping unhealthy and high-energy meals such as fast foods, with healthier choices like fruits, vegetables, and many other alternatives. Although diet programs help lose weight through reducing the amount of calorie intake, physical exercise is necessary to maintain a healthy weight.
A visit to Live Well Rehab will provide you with an opportunity to interact with our professionals in dietary and exercise physiology to help guide you on the most suitable diet and exercise plan for you. Our programs on obesity treatment are aimed to educate on issues such as portion size, healthy eating, and adaptability to behaviour changes. The programs are also friendly about what to eat and not the over-restricting food type. It is also based on a gradual process with lasting results and not the usual rapid ways of weight loss, which are unlikely to last.
