Patients who are not eligible for weight loss surgery can lose weight and become healthier under the supervision of a registered dietitian. Following a monitored diet and exercise plan can significantly improve one's health and help prevent obesity and obesity-related illnesses.

This is a tricky question. However, a combination of nutiritonal guidance from a dietitian or nutritionist, an exercise routine, and healthy food choices is ALWAYS the best non-surgical route for wieght loss. On occasion, medication can help with weight loss, but shouldnt be used as a long-term method.
This answer is different for everyone. But its safe to say that the more weight you have to lose, the longer non-surgical methods can take.
The best way to determine if non-surgical or surgical weight loss is best for you is to speak with a weight loss surgeon about the risks and benefits of both sides.
With non-surgical weight loss, the amount a patient loses is COMPLETELY up to the patients dedication to healthy food choices and regimented exercise routine.
