Q: My sister's husband is overweight and he needs to lose weight. His doctor has advises him that he need to lose weight in order to be healthy. He wants to lose weight naturally and in a healthy. What is the best way to do this?


A: Trying to tackle any type of major weight loss on your own (or in this case, your brother-in-law by himself) can be very overwhelming. There are many different factors to take into consideration and everyone's situation is different.

To set him up for success, I encourage him to seek the guidance of a dietitian and personal trainer. The dietitian will be able to evaluate his current dietary habits and outline a plan of action to begin losing weight naturally.

Physical activity is essential for successful long term weight loss. A personal trainer will provide activity guidelines that will be safe for your brother-in-laws current fitness level and work within his limitations (i.e. whether he works out at a gym or at home).

Also, don't forget the importance of having friends/family that support his new healthy habits, which it looks like he must with your family support.

Good luck.
