Weight loss DRUGS
Weight loss medication typically works by suppressing appetite or preventing the body from absorbing and/or storing energy in consumed food as body fat. Appetite is the desire to eat food, sometimes due to hunger. Appealing foods can stimulate appetite even when hunger is absent, although appetite can be greatly reduced by satiety. Appetite serves to regulate adequate energy intake to maintain metabolic needs.
In Canada, there are weight loss treatments available.
