The Importance of Weight Management

Weight management is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight (which is typically determined by a number of factors, including age and height) can help prevent the development of numerous diseases. Becoming overweight or obese can put you at a higher risk for developing health issues that could include the following:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallstones
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory issues

Obesity is a serious issue, especially in the United States. As of 2010, the CDC (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention) estimated that almost a third of all Americans could be considered obese. Not to mention that maintaining a healthy weight will generally make you feel good about yourself (self confidence is an important part of mental health) and will help keep your energy up.

What Does Weight Management Consist Of?

A holistic weight management program for Washington, DC residents consists of two main things – diet and exercise. Weight management plans differ depending on what your weight is. Someone who is extremely obese will be put on a weight loss plan, whereas someone who is around their ideal weight will be given a different weight management plan.


Regular exercise is an essential part of weight management. Exercise can  lower your blood pressure as well as your cholesterol levels, which in turn can help to prevent heart attacks.

Additionally, the more regularly you exercise, the less at risk you are of developing breast cancer or colon cancer. To maintain a healthy weight, it’s suggested that you perform an aerobic exercise of some kind at least three times a week for a duration of at least 20 minutes.

If you are attempting to lose weight, then more exercise may be required. Even going for a short 15- or 20- minute walk in addition to the recommended weekly aerobic exercise can be very beneficial to your health. Other forms of exercise, such as weight training or yoga, are highly recommended as well.


Diet plans vary depending on the specific needs of each patient. However, a healthy diet is required if you are to maintain a successful weight management plan. A good diet means staying away from sugars and processed foods and eating a large amount of vegetables and fruits.
