    Collapse Long-term Success with Physical Activity

    Studies show that physical activity is key to maintaining long-term weight loss, so including a physical activity component in your patients' treatment plans is critical. Starting physical activity early in treatment can increase energy expenditure, improve muscle messaging to adipose tissue, and preserve lean muscle mass that is at risk during active weight loss. It also helps alleviate symptoms of obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and heart disease. The sessions within this package provides the most comprehensive, evidence-based physical activity education available online.
