How the UAE can Lose Weight Safely

When dieting and exercising alone are not enough

The prevalence of obesity continues to remain a concern across the world, and the population living in the UAE is no exception to this problem. A 2019 survey discovered that 48% of UAE residents are on a mission to lose weight, with 26% planning to only use exercise, whilst 20% trying to hit their target by changing their diet. However, what happens when diet and exercise are not enough to get you to your desired goals?

Losing weight can be challenging. The most basic factors, such as age, sex, body type, medical issues, physical activity, genetics, and even food preferences, can influence a person’s ability to lose weight and maintain it long-term. Here are some simple steps to achieving weight loss successfully and safely.

  1. Take a close look at your lifestyle – Evaluate your current lifestyle and identify behaviours that might contribute to weight gain. You can keep a diary log of food consumed and level of daily physical activity. Then, you’ll better understand what habits need to be changed.
  2. Setting realistic goals – Determine how much weight you need to lose and set short-term goals along the way. Your goals should be realistic and achievable.
  3. Mindful eating – Pay attention to what, how and when you consume food. This in turn ensures that you enjoy what you eat and feel satisfied with fewer portions, thereby maintaining a healthy weight.
  4. Combine good healthcare and science – Successful weight loss programs should combine researched solutions with proper guidance from healthcare professionals. Such as with the Allurion Program, which focuses on weight loss while giving patients the building blocks to rehaul their lifestyles, achieve desired results, and attain long-term success.

It is so important to choose options that help you lose weight safely whilst building habits that will bring about a positive change in your lifestyle.
