The best way to lose weight and to keep it off is to change your lifestyle and exercise regularly.• Follow Canada’s Food Guide.
Be wary of quick diets: the results don’t last. You should lose no more than 0.5 to 1 kg per week.
Seek support from those around you or from a health professional.
If you are worried about your weight or would like more information on BMI and the consequences of excess weight for your health, or if you have questions about weight loss products found on pharmacy shelves, ask your pharmacist.
