I believe I am a great candidate for certain weight loss meds for obesity. I am on Medicare, Phx, Az. Any recommendations.
There are no such drugs that work long term. One such drug does separate fat from the rest of the food but it oozes out of your derriere. Not my choice.
Weight loss is not yet a med relief situation. It comes down to what, and how much you eat and how often, and drink. Plus doing exercise.
Stopping all those foods you love basically and going for rabbit food. Walking does work if you do it every day and do it as fast as you can, withing reason. Start slowly though and work up.
If you have noticed nearly every day there is a new fad diet or substance that is either on TV or in magazines. All fads and do not work long term, and many don't work at all.
There is talk of an obesity drug in the future but when? they won't say. They usually say 5 years which is science talk for "Whenever".
If you are serious it is an entire lifestyle change you need to make as described above. I can't do that as I love food and hate water.
Many on here will give you advice but unless they have the above solution, they are passing on old wives tales. Ask your doctor, he or she will tell you that you must output more than you put in, else you will gain weight. It's simple science really but so hard to do.
