Other Than Diet And Exercise, Are There Alternative Ways To Deal With Obesity?

Question: Other than diet and exercise, are there alternative ways to deal with obesity?

Answer: The first and foremost treatments for managing weight, reducing weight, preventing obesity are appropriate diet and exercise. We've got the longest history and we know the benefits, and in fact, it's easy and cheap with appropriate support.

If those aren't working, and they've been tried, sometimes medications can be helpful, and in extreme cases, bariatric surgery is an option, but all of this should be addressed with consultation with your doctor.
