Gaining excessive amount of weight is a major problem for people around the world. This problem is not limited by geographical boundaries. People from almost every country of the world are suffering from this problem. Hence, new ways are being found out to solve this problem. There are different kinds of medicines invented to reduce the amount of fat in the body. Apart from that, controlling the diet of the person can also help a lot.
The foods we eat are full of preservatives, artificial this and that, hormones, and things that no way you can pronounce correctly or have the slightest idea of what it is. They are abiding by the rules though and putting it on the label but do people read that and really care? I see very few people reading labels at the store before they throw the box into their cart.
And so, driven to find a solution, because diet after diet has failed, we think we find the solution to our morbid obesity in surgery. Bariatric surgery has increased some 600% in the past decade. In 2005, the NIH reported over 171,000 surgeries were performed in the United States. Yet with 30% of the population obese, there are MILLIONS of individuals who have not had bursa obezite.
It was the same way when I was a child. My parents always made sure that there were plenty of sugary snacks, ice cream, cookies, chips, candy, pastries, and sodas in the house. Nutrition was not a big concern in the 60’s, 70’s. Of coarse it was not a problem then because sports, and outdoor activities were the main ways to keep entertained back then, no computer or video games to play. Our metabolism was higher and we would burn off and use up most of the sugars and fats we consumed. Later is when it would catch up with us.
It is important to understand that neither a roux-en-y or lap band surgery will cure obesity. You will lose weight, but at some point in time your weight loss will depend on the choices that you make and the changes you have integrated into your lifestyle. If is necessary for you to learn when you have physical hunger and head hunger. You want to eat to nourish your body and not to fill a void.
When we go to our doctors, or other health practitioners, we know the certainty of being told to lose weight. Even if our practitioner is overweight, many of us still receive a condescending lecture about the dangers of being so overweight. Really, do they think we ENJOY this?
Before considering any surgery, look into the lifestyle changes that would make the biggest impact.Healthy eating and exercise.Obviously it’s not easy, but it’s very possible.It has the biggest results, that last a life time.
