Counselling for Obesity

Counselling should be directed towards impractical expectations of the patients. The counsellor should emphasize that even a small change in the body weight will produce significant outcome. For instance, a 5% loss in weight reduces the risk of obtaining type 2 diabetes by 60%. People suffering from obesity should be encouraged to undergo counselling. Patients who undergo cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) together with proper dietary regimen and systemic physical exercise will be able to lose extra 10.8 pounds compared to the patients following only exercise and diet. 1/3rd of obese patients in the world achieve better results when interventions include diet, medication and counselling.
