The first and greatest obstacle to weight loss is simply the decision to lose weight.  Since you have already taken the first step and decided to lose weight, the next essential question is what weight loss program to choose?  Then, of course, what will that weight loss program cost?

Medical-weight-loss-nyObviously, there are a number of weight loss programs on the market today.  You can find a wide range of options, from the simple do it yourself diet book, to the fully interactive programs like weight watchers or Jenny Craig.  So, how do you chose?  How do you even compare?  The best way to choose a weight loss program is to evaluate what you need from the weight loss program.

You should evaluate the successfulness of the program.  You don’t want to waste your money on a program that doesn’t have a proven success rate.

Does it have support options, and does that support have any additional costs.  For example, weekly meeting expenses.

How flexible is the plan.  If you find after a few months that you are no longer losing weight you don’t want to be stuck with a plan that isn’t working for you for the next six months or a year.

Is the program offering you balanced nutrition?  Nutrition is an essential piece of weight loss.  The reason so many fad diets fail is because they don’t provide the proper nutrition to be successful.

Also, consider does the program rely on dedicated or prepackaged meals.  Any dedicated or prepackaged food is going to increase your overall weight loss costs.

Research indicates that it is harder to lose weight on your own with a do it yourself approach.  Additionally, studies have indicated that people who use a do it yourself weight loss plan lose less weight overall than people who have used a structured weight loss plan.

Overall, you will find that the weight loss program cost are comparable.  Every plan will have some variety but the actual costs will be comparable in general.  Keeping in mind that there are two fees associated with weight loss programs.  First the cost of the product and second the coaching fees.  Find a program that fits with your life and offers the plan that you feel will help you be the most successful.
