Many people believe that those who are overweight or obese need to simply “eat less, exercise more,” however it is not always that easy. Those who fall within the category of obese often are fighting a multifaceted, chronic, and progressive disease. Those who have 20 pounds or more to lose and are looking to change their weight permanently may be candidates for medical weight loss and maintenance.
