(HealthDay News) -- While a weight-loss program can help you shed pounds, it's important to make sure the program is safe and effective.

The Weight-control Information Network suggests these questions:

  • Are classes or individual counseling available to teach me healthier eating habits?
  • Does the program involve keeping food records or sticking to a specific meal plan?
  • Will I need to buy supplements or special meals?
  • Can I make meal adjustments and substitutions based on allergies and preferences?
  • Does the program encourage exercise and teach me how to be more active?
  • Does the program allow accommodations for culture, lifestyle, holidays and other special circumstances?
  • Will the program guide me in maintaining weight loss?
