Weight can be a sensitive topic for those experiencing body image issues. Some of us use food to escape or find relief from the stress of daily challenges. It is also common to restrict food and food-related behaviours as a means to gain control in one’s life. Weight management issues include being underweight, overweight or obese.  This could result from behaviors such as fasting, food restriction, binge eating, unhealthy food choice or lack of exercise. If not properly treated, weight management issues can cause serious health problems that can inhibit physical and emotional functioning.

Weight management issues and the corresponding emotional issues that arise as a result continue to affect a large number of women and men. It is important to gain knowledge of this issue, by understanding the risk factors and developing a positive, proactive attitude and strategy to manage weight in a healthy way. Developing and implementing a healthy routine is important for successful weight management. Understanding emotional issues that may influence weight management difficulty is another key strategy.
