Dr. Sarah Ramadani – Family Practice at Froedtert South. She is also certified in Weight Management. Her goal is to work with patients to recognize the causes of obesity and tackling them. Weight loss will increase your quality of life. Treatment for weight loss varies; medications and surgery are not for everyone. You must evaluate each person and make a determination. Sleep quality and quantity can affect weight loss, as well as your energy levels.  Successful weight loss also involves committing to lifestyle changes, avoiding all or nothing mentality and if you “fall of the wagon”, jump right back on, have realistic expectations and willingness to modify your plans.  Slow and steady weight loss is best – ½ - 2#/week.
