Welcome to the Weight Loss Channel
Given the fact that obesity is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States, it's no wonder that people are so interested in weight loss: What are the best methods to lose weight? Does one pill work better than another? What about surgery? There is so much information out there that it can be confusing to know what's accurate and what is the best choice for you.
Welcome to the Weight Loss Health Channel by eMedTV. This health channel provides the information you need to help obtain your weight loss goals. Use the BMI calculator to find out if your body mass index is within a healthy range. Use the obesity chart to determine if you are obese or just overweight. This channel also contains information to help you understand what is the ideal weight for you and offers a wealth of information designed to help you get to your ideal weight. You'll find articles on healthy eating, tips for living a healthy lifestyle, childhood obesity, surgery, and more. In addition, because there are so many drugs out there, all purporting to be the answer to weight loss, we've included articles on specific drugs, like Alli® and Xenical®, explaining who should use them and what kinds of results you can expect.
