What you eat is an important part of any good weight loss plan. Food provides your body with calories. Eating more calories than your body burns leads to weight gain while eating less than needs promotes weight loss. Dr. Sekhon will develop the right balance of calories to help you lose weight quickly and safely.

Once you’ve lost the weight, she’ll work with you to develop a diet that helps you maintain your weight loss and provide continued support to help you stay on track.

Do I need to exercise?

Exercise may be part of your weight loss plan. Dr. Sekhon works with you to develop an exercise program that fits both your fitness level and weight loss goals. A good weight loss program should include 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise five days a week, plus strength training two days.
