What is weight loss treatment?

It’s quite a clever thing really. Some weight loss products get friendly with the enzymes that digest fat in your body, and stop this fat from being absorbed. The fat instead comes out in your stool, and voila, this enables you to lose weight. 

Other weight loss products act on the brain instead of your digestive system. They have a natter with the brain and let it know that you’ve had enough to eat. This stops you from overeating, and promotes weight loss. 

Who is weight loss treatment suitable for?

Weight loss treatments are only appropriate for people whose BMI (body mass index) is at least 30, or 28 in the event that you have other risk factors like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. 

You can check your BMI using the NHS healthy weight calculator.[1] The weight loss calculator will indicate if you’re a healthy weight, and how much weight you need to lose to achieve a healthy weight if you’re overweight. 

The BMI range that’s considered healthy can vary depending on your ethnicity. Asian and Asian American ethnic groups with a BMI of 23 or more for example are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and other long term illnesses.[2] The NHS healthy weight calculator asks you what your ethnicity is, so this feature is included here.  

The calculator provides you with a personal calorie allowance, to allow you to get to a healthy weight in a safe way.

If your BMI is below these numbers, and you’re overweight, your clinician will usually recommend making adjustments to your diet in the first instance, and increasing the amount of exercise you do. They may advise you to record what you eat in a food diary for one week. This can help them to monitor any particular habits that you have (such as putting sugar in your coffee) which you can change under their guidance. 

Similarly, in terms of exercise, your clinician may ask you to keep an activity diary, and to wear a pedometer for a week. A pedometer keeps track of the number of steps that you take and allows your clinician to gauge how active you are on a daily basis. 

Once your clinician has gathered this information, they can help you to make changes to your lifestyle, and create a plan of action. 

What types of weight loss treatment are there?

From tablets to capsules to injections, there are a variety of weight loss medicines available. Which type of treatment is the right option for you usually depends on factors like your susceptibility to particular side effects, if you’re currently taking other medicines which may interact with a particular type of weight loss treatment, or if you have certain health conditions.

What you need to know about weight loss

How does weight loss treatment work?

Certain weight loss treatments stop some of the fat that you consume from being digested, and this fat is instead released from the body in your stool (it doesn’t sound overly appetising, we know, but it does the job)! The active ingredient in these products latches on to the enzymes that break down fat in the digestive system, and stops them from functioning as they normally would. Because this fat isn’t absorbed by the body, it allows you to lose weight. Weight loss products such as Orlistat, Xenical and Alli all work in this way.

Other weight loss products work a bit differently. Treatments such as Mysimba and Saxenda act on receptors in the brain that regulate your appetite, causing you to feel fuller and less hungry. This can help you to eat less food, and reduce your weight. Magic. Paul Daniels, eat your heart out!
