Most should see a rapid weight loss of between 8 – 13 pounds. Most restrictive. Phase 2: until reach goal weight. Weight loss 1-2 pounds per week. Foods that were restricted in re-introduced into the diet. Phase 3: for life. Restrictions: avoid highly processed food that contains ‘bad’ carbs and ‘bad’ fats and try and stick to the food that contains the ‘good’ ones.

Barnum was right Healthy weight is only a part of good nutrition What Can Physicians Do?: What Can Physicians Do? Counsel Drugs Surgery Advocacy Evidence:USPSTF Conclusions: Evidence: USPSTF Conclusions Counseling and pharmacotherapy can promote modest sustained weight loss, improving clinical outcomes. Pharmacotherapy appears safe in the short term; long-term safety is less established. In selected patients, surgery promotes large amounts of weight loss with rare but sometimes severe complications High-Intensity Counseling: Diet, Exercise, or Both: High-Intensity Counseling: Diet, Exercise, or Both Includes behavioral interventions aimed at skill development, motivation, and support strategies Produces modest, sustained weight loss (typically 3-5 kg for 1 year or more) in adults who are obese How Much Weight?: How Much Weight? Regardless of whether overweight or normal weight, those who gain are more likely to have adverse heart disease risks than those who don’t Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults Study (2004): 5000 men and women age 18-30 15 year follow-up 3.6 percent of those who maintained their weight developed metabolic syndrome 18 percent of those whose weight had increased developed metabolic syndrome Obesity Drugs: Obesity Drugs Appetite suppressants Noradrenergic (Schedule IV) Phentermine (Adipex, Fastin) Diethylpropion (Tenuate) Noradrenergic (Schedule III) Benzphetamine (Didrex) Phendimetrazine (Bontril) Serotonergic Fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine Mixed Noradrenergic andamp; Serotonergic Sibutramine (Meridia) Nutrient absorption reducers Lipase inhibitor Orlistat (Xenical) Sibutramine (Meridia): Sibutramine (Meridia) Contraindicated: CAD, CHF, cardiac arrhythmias or stroke Side Effects: hypertension, arrhythmia, tachycardia, headache, dry mouth, constipation, insomnia Orlistat: Orlistat Lipase inhibitor: reduces fat absorption by ~30% resulting in reduction in energy intake Inhibits digestion of dietary triglycerides, decreases absorption of cholesterol and lipid-soluble vitamins Side Effects: Side Effects GI side effects due to inhibition of fat absorption pain, fecal urgency, liquid stools, flatulence with discharge, oily spotting Summary: Meta-analysis: Summary: Meta-analysis Placebo subtracted weight losses for single drugs never exceeded 4.0 kg No drug or class of drug exhibits clear superiority Increasing length of drug treatment does not lead to more weight loss Haddock CK, et al.
