PROBLEMS OF WEIGHT CONTROL: PLANNING FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Any program of weight loss of more than a few pounds should be directed by a physician. If a weight-losing program is to be successful, the individual must be convinced of the rewards that will come: better health, a slimmer figure, more pep, and perhaps a longer life. Although a low-calorie diet is used only so long as weight needs to be lost, each obese person must be convinced that he needs to modify his lifetime eating habits. If he fails to do this, he will gain back all the pounds he has lost.
It is important to set a reasonable goal. A weekly weight loss of 1/2 to 1 kg (1 to 2 lb) is better than a crash program that leaves one tired and unwilling to continue. If one needs to lose 25 kg (55 lb), six to nine months is not an unreasonable time allowance.
Keeping a weekly weight chart is a good idea. The person should weigh at the same time every week on the same scale and with the same amount of clothing. He needs to know that the scales might not show any weight loss for the first week or two because, in some instances, water is temporarily held in the tissues when people are placed on reducing diets. After a while this water will be released from the tissues, and the weight loss will show up.
Exercise has its place in a weight-reduction program. Walking is one of the best exercises. People can walk a few extra blocks to work or make it a practice to see a little more of the outdoors on foot rather than from an automobile window. Moderate exercise does not increase the appetite as some claim. For very obese persons, or those who have been ill, the recommendation for exercise by the physician should be followed closely. It is never a good idea for a person who has been sedentary to suddenly engage in violent exercise.
