Weight Loss

« Back to Glossary Index

Weight loss refers to the process of losing body weight through a combination of diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. The most effective way to lose weight is to create a calorie deficit, which means burning more calories than you consume. This can be achieved by reducing your calorie intake, increasing your physical activity, or a combination of both. Additionally, focusing on nutrient-dense, whole foods and avoiding processed foods, added sugars and saturated fats can help support weight loss goals.

Obalon is a weight loss device that is designed to help people lose weight by taking up space in the stomach, making them feel full, and reducing their appetite. It is a swallowable, gas-filled balloon that is placed in the stomach through a non-surgical, endoscopic procedure. Once the balloon is in place, it is filled with a small amount of gas, which takes up space in the stomach and helps reduce hunger and promote feelings of fullness. Obalon is typically used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program, and it is intended for people who are overweight or obese and have a BMI of 30 or higher. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if Obalon is a safe and appropriate option for you.
