Weight management is a tricky business for anyone, but it's especially tough for people with mobility limitations. Research suggests that weight management programs should be tailored to the individual and include goals such as eating nutritious foods and moving more every day. Losing weight may not even be your main goal. Instead, you could focus on the quality of life improvements like reducing pain or improving sleep or sense of well-being.
Weight management is an important part of a healthy lifestyle as it allows for increased energy, increased mood, increased stamina, and a reduced risk of many diseases. Weight management can include dieting or exercise, or both.
