Weight Management

Weight Management Strategies In Singapore

Our weight is a combination of various factors: genetics, environment, and even our daily access to food and exercise options. For some people, a naturally higher metabolic rate or better access to healthier food makes it easier to attain or maintain their ideal weight. For others, it may not be as easy to achieve weight management strategies in Singapore. Factors such as accidents, injuries, or disabilities may also impact these efforts

Potential Consequences Of Higher Body Weight

Being overweight or on the heavier side may bring about some inconveniences or potential health issues down the line. While not every overweight person will experience these, weight management can help to decrease the risk of these conditions:

  • Cardiovascular diseases (more commonly heart disease and stroke)
  • Type II Diabetes
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis – a degenerative disease of the joints that can be highly disabling if not treated early)
  • Some cancers (including endometrial, breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and colon)

Generally speaking, overweight or obese individuals are recommended to undergo weight management to reach a weight that is healthy for them in the long run. When beginning your weight management journey, it is recommended to seek professional advice on a holistic approach to avoid any injuries. Our physiotherapists based in Singapore can offer guidance on strategies to adopt.
