Healthy weight loss is a goal for many patients, specifically those confronting obesity. Effective weight reduction often involves a partnership between a highly motivated patient and a committed team of health professionals. This team may include a physician, physical and exercise therapists, dietitian, psychologist or psychiatrist, and other subspecialists, depending on the comorbidities of the individual patient. Multidisciplinary programs reliably produce and sustain modest weight loss between 5% and 10% over the long term.

Diet, physical activity, medications, and bariatric surgery all have varying roles in helping patients achieve healthy weight loss. Do you know key clinical information and recommendations regarding weight reduction? Test your knowledge with this short quiz.
