Weight Management Q & A

What is weight management?

Weight management is essentially a way to learn a new approach to food and life in general. For many people who struggle with their weight, food is a major part of their lives. 

Many people have treasured memories of events or circumstances that feature food in a major way. This is very normal, but emotional attachments to food can be extremely harmful for your health long-term. 

Weight management at Raritan Family Healthcare helps you reset your thinking patterns around food. In addition to learning how to maintain healthy eating habits, you also discover how to enjoy your life without relying on food for an emotional lift or feelings of happiness. 

Essentially, you learn how to eat to live, rather than living to eat. 

When might I need weight maintenance?

Weight maintenance can be extremely beneficial in a few different situations, including:

After medical weight loss

After you reach your target weight through the medical weight loss program, you move on to the often-challenging phase of maintaining that loss.

Medical experts estimate that up to 95% of people who lose weight end up regaining it. 

The weight maintenance program gives you the tools you need to prevent the weight from creeping back.

When your health is at risk

Some of the most common health problems among Americans, such as Type 2 diabetes, have very clear warning signs like elevated blood sugar, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. 

If you have any risk factors for chronic disease, maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best ways you can prevent the disease from developing. This is particularly important if you have a healthy weight but have possible risk factors for chronic illness along with a history of weight struggles.

Weight maintenance can benefit people of any age, but it may become especially important later in life. Many people start to struggle with weight gain as they enter middle age or senior years, even if they never had any problem maintaining their weight when they were young.

What happens during the weight management program?

The weight management program at Raritan Family Healthcare can teach you many different tips, tricks, and tools for success. A few examples include:

  • Nutritional guidance
  • Portion size guidance
  • Learning new habits
  • Exercise counseling

You also learn how to adjust your thoughts so you can enjoy all of the same activities as before, just in a healthier way.
