Weight gain and obesity is a considerable problem for public health services. According to NHS survey data from 2017, around 1 in 8 adults in England is morbidly obese. Approximately a third of the population is classed as overweight, so many of us are carrying around unhealthy levels of excess fat and weight loss would improve long-term health and wellness. Being overweight is known to increase the risk of developing other medical conditions including type two diabetes, heart disease and various cancers. It is also seen as something which ultimately leads to life shortening. Losing weight can be difficult and many people try multiple ways through diet plans, programmes and lifestyle changes but remain unsuccessful or regain the weight very quickly. Undergoing medically supervised weight loss programmes which can be tailored to you and monitor your weight and progress is a great way to achieve your desired weight loss.
