Patient Resource: Exercise

Exercise will be an important part of your new lifestyle. We know that by increasing your activity level, you are increasing the amount of energy your body expends. This results in increased weight loss. We also know that most individuals who successfully have maintained their weight for long periods of time are usually those who exercise on a regular basis.
We encourage every patient to walk at least 30 minutes a day. Even if you are unable to tolerate the full 30 minutes at one time, try to walk as long as tolerated and do that as many times as needed to add up to 30 minutes. Exercise is a must as you start eating less in order to maintain your metabolism.

  • Walk for 30 minutes or more most days of the week
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Park your car further away in a parking lot
  • Go for a walk with a friend or family
  • Follow a balanced fitness program
  • Join friends in a sport activity

Exercise alone will not lead to weight loss, but it is an important part of the comprehensive lifestyle changes that help many patients find success.
